Thread: AT&T is on Pins and Needles over MMS Launch

  1. #61
    I don't have AT&T and I never have but I've always thought the constant bashing of them has been excessive. As many people in this thread have said they've got 5 MILLION iPhones on their network. When I think about how much data I use on Edge I can't imagine the amount of data people with faster 3g internet are using every single day. I also agree that if you put any other network up to supporting the massive influx of MMS and data usage that will occur tomorrow and for awhile to come with them adding MMS they would crash and burn. I'm constantly impressed that you AT&T people are able to keep using your phones, stream your radio, watch youtube videos and god knows what else.

    That said I'm on 2g with T-mobile so MMS doesn't affect me but I'll be interested to see what happens tomorrow.

    on a side note.. Anyone notice yesterday and the day before more dropped calls then usual? I think the upgrades have had some effect on the network already. At least in SW Fl..

    at the end of the day the fact is that..... 3 YEARS LATER AT&T still hasn't updated their network.

    This isn't like the iPhone came out in June.
    It's been three years. If 3 going on 4 years isn't enough time for them to update the system then all the time in the world isn't going to help them


    I hope mms shuts down AT&T and apple realizes it's time for a new carrier or atleast to add another one to the list.
    it won't be until 2011 when they plan on having full HSPA across 90% of their network, so that makes it almost 6 yrs until their network is fully upgraded.

    by 2011 i see verizon/sprint maybe even t-mobile rocking 4G phones, while most at&t users are still on 3.5G HSPA.

    as soon as a 4G phone comes out in the NYC area im jumping ship, and unless at&t turns up the heat, they will be the only carrier still rocking HSPA when everyone is 4G Wimax/LTE.

    I don't know why mod's/staff are rocking at&t so hard anyways,

    does at&t call you and give you a big fat check for sticking up for them?

    Just because you are a mod or staff doesn't mean you have to agree with the masses.

    Its a carrier update, which is safe to use with JB, I can confirm this as I already installed it & its working perfect in Central NJ.

    yesterday i had horrible service, in fact my phone was stuck on "searching" for service for a good hour. if this is a sign of whats to come over getting things ready for MMS i don't even want to imagine what the service is going to be like once the green button is pushed.

    I know they don't have to agree with us, but damn.

    They came on really strong about at&t, like it was personal, people are just voicing their opinions on the fact that at&t has had a lot of time to get things done, and work out the kinks in their network.

    I can make calls, but I haven't seen a 3G signal between my home and work, which is strange. Usually when I get 1-2 miles from the main MS campus I pick up 3G again, but even with restarting my phone while at the store, no love.

    (yes, I do have the toggle for 3G turned on)

    Yep, I saw that as well mostly last night when my comcast internet went out and I was using my tethering to get online.

    I'm pretty sure anyone on this Modmyi site already has MMS considering this is somewhat of a hack site, just funny that everyone keeps mentioning how they have it already.....

    When it rolls out if its not extra money i will probably switch over to the Official way of getting MMS instead of the way I hack'd it. IF ITS FREE

    Im curious on how ATT network will hold up though

    Do we need to update to 3.1 for MMS? Then it'll break my jailbreak.
