    What a complete moron. If AT&T delaying MMS for 3 days is the worst thing to happen to me in my life, I'll give the guy his 2 bucks.

    If anything I think 2G iPhone owners should be suing. Apple lying out their *** that the hardware can't support it. I lost all respect for Apple as a company when they lied that the 2G couldn't support mms or video recording (3G also). Granted the video recording would have been lower quality than the 3GS has, but it can still do it.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

    ya know, its ******** like this "class-action lawsuit" that has kept my dad from getting closure in my stepmom's death by tieing up the court system. she was killed by an idiot driver almost 2 years ago and they still have not gotten into court. (sorry i have to name call here) any of you morons who actually think this lawsuit should be taking place, go ahead and jump off a really tall building, and hold your hand out for your money as you fall. what gets put in your hand as you fall is what you deserve.

    as far as at&t goes, i have had mms with a 3rd party app for about a year now. and all i had to do was buy the app and call at&t and tell them im not happy without mms and they fixed my settings right up. if you are a good customer with them, their rating system they use is a good idea, they usually do whatever you want within reason. in short, u missed mms for all of a couple of days, and it must have been so painful. GET OVER IT.

    The issue with the iPhone 2G and 3G recording video is that the camera that they put in them was not made for taking video, yes you could do it if you hacked the software but the camera itself was not intended for it. From my understanding on how the camera module works it would be similar to taking a bunch of pictures on your, lets say, Canon Rebel XT and compiling a video from said pictures by using each one as a frame in the video.

    I'm not sure about the MMS but as far as the video Apple did not lie about that. The iPhone in the state which it was purchased (from Apple, at&t, etc.) it was incapable of taking video or sending/receiving MMS.

    Come on now! We have seen so many lawsuits already but little or no results till date. Class action lawsuit - in the best case can give us ATT credit for 3 days but that's about it!

    um....shouldn't he be suing at&t? an iphone running 3.0 supported mms out the box, so they delivered on thier promise, at&t did not, all other iphone carriers across the globe had thier mms working almost immediatley. if thier is anything apple should be sued over is not letting people choose whether or not they want to run 3.0(.01) or 3.1. not allowing people to roll back to an OS that was stable and didn't "comatose" thier iphones.

    It's ridiculous for AT&T and Apple for delaying MMS, but it is even more ridiculous to sue them. This guy probably sue them for money. That's what the people do here now days.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Apple can't control when the carrier updates are released by AT&T. This is ludicrous.

    Video's taken with Cycorder look pretty good, for a phone that can't record video. Apple plainly stated the hardware on a 2G iPhone did not support mms, when in fact it does & they know it does.

    I was just about to say the same thing - there are quite a few apps fr jailbroken 2G phones that allow for MMS, hell even video recording for the 1st gen phones - and apple says the hardware can't do it. Yes Appl did try to get a ruling saying that jailbreaking you phone was illegal - but it Swirly and other apps prove that the older hardware can do it... I would go after apple for that

    If it's compiling a bunch of individual snapshots as stitching them together as a video - it does a pretty good job! I would love to know what physical difference(hardware-wise) between 1st vs 2nd and 3rd gen phones is so different that it can't do mms... or for any post year 2000 camera phone from ANY manufacturer that can send/receive MMS

    Yeah, I'm the idiot.

    My point is, Apple kept it from us for 2 years. AT&T was late on their deadline by 3 days. Big freaking whoop.

    As I recall, Apple advertised on their own website that MMS on AT&T would be available by the end of summer. Apple is just as guilty for false advertising.

    it's a fact that global warming has extended summer, so apple has mother nature on its side. apple will prevail.
