Get MMS on your iPhone TODAY
image source: Fire Wire
Cult of Mac has a simple straightforward hack to enable MMS messaging on your iPhone 3G or 3GS if you just can't wait... or if, like me, you have fun playing around in your phone's guts a little.
It takes about three minutes, and Leander Kahney warns that some users have said it doesn't work. Your mileage, as always, may vary.

Oh yeah cause we haven't been trying that for the last few months....

you should just delete this thread. it's been made already enough times...
you keep posting old news for some reason
your other thread about "Free calling" was news over a 1.5 months old
this MMS enabling thing is news from months ago that has been posted to death already

First of all guys, you're mocking him WITHOUT A SINGLE REASON! This is the latest method with a new file and some new technique to enable MMS on your 3G/ 3GS, updated to 3.1 and works even with iTunes 9.0! Please do some research before being rude to someone...

This works great. mine and all 6 in the house works with this and it's so simple

the "latest" method? more like the SAME method that's been around for months.... with plenty of threads already made about it...

This is what I did to get MMS working on my iPhone 3GS 32GB Using iTunes 8.2 on my AT&T Network:
1. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities)
Type the following command: defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE
2. Downloaded and Installed the file for Carrier 5.0 file (Reboot iPhone)
3. Put my sim card into an alternate phone that takes a sim card
4. Went to here (https://mymedianet.wireless.att.com/app/MC) and signed up for media net
5. Sent A MMS or SMS from or to the Alternate phone (This step changes your phone in your At&t account and makes your online account think you have the alternate phone as your primary)
5. Switch the sim card back into the iphone and Bingo!!! MMS
Hope this helps someone that was having troubleKing Los aka Los Ninyo

Did it last Friday on my 3G and New 3GS and it works great.I love my iPhone Cydia style.

I used the second phone trick for months now.
With or with out jailbreak, I got it working when I had 3.1.
09-16-2009, 05:31 PM #13
Now if I can just get tethering back. I had it on my non jail broken 3G and 3.1 killed it. Anyone know how to get it back without a jailbreak.I love my iPhone Cydia style.

I did this on my phone yesterday. along with 4 others. however on my 3gs i had to ssh the carrier bundle into my phone as stealths guide shows
09-16-2009, 05:36 PM #15
Just did as instructed, and everything's dandy, except can't send pictures.
Going to try the two-phone method here in a minute.

i agree that the idea is old, but the program and files are new.
on the other hand, anyone that wanted mms that badly would have probably googled it and already found the link by stealthbravo and either had/or didnt get it to work. but for the few in the world that never thought to google it, thanks for bringing it to those peoples attention. they will surely thank you
have a great day

i got an error when trying this
09-16-2009, 05:47 PM #19
Yeah, ive been doing this for like 3 months now. If you do those steps and it doesnt work, do the media net trick, i heard they topped disabling the mms once its on the account.

i tried everything. it just never sends i keep getting the red exclamation point.
