    You do realise that there are some lawyers out there that are rubbing their hands and thinking that this is gonna be an easy payday today??

    I can see why people are pissed. I had MMS the day I bought my 3GS and tbh I hardly use it. I did wonder why the iphone had been deprived of this feature for so long but if I had had an iphone without mms I'm sure I wouldn't have missed it. How easy is it for you to upload pictures to your facebook/bebo/some skanky social network site (I'm not a fan btw )and tell them to go look it up on their phones that can surf the web. If people were so desperate to send pictures to each other then do it by email its not difficult.

    Just as an aside and for something for you folks to think about...

    How many times has the gran turismo game release date been pushed back over the years and yet no-one tried to sue them(to the best of my knowledge.) We knew that the game would be refined and be better than it would have been but yet no-one decided that they were gonna take em down and teach them a lesson about false advertising. I know that others had MMS before AT&T gave it to their users but has anyone stopped to think why they did it? Do we have an answer as to why it was delayed for so long?

    How about they were upgrading their infrastructure so that it could cope with the extra traffic? What about the time it takes to test the MMS service out so that it doesn't crash the system completely? I don't know but it might be a few examples. I bet there would be a storm of complaints if the MMS went live half assed and not working to the best it could be. You get where Im going with this. Some people are more patient than others I guess. Im not sticking up for AT&T cause I have heard some horror stories but, you gotta see it from both sides.

    I look at all these cases that have been highlighted about all the robbers sueing their victims and wonder where these idiots who let these cases through to be heard learnt their common sense and morals from.

    I can honestly say with certainty that this case is gonna get kicked out. I doubt that apple has that much control over AT&T anyway.

    and just to make sure.... they now have MMS on one of the most amazing pieces of gadgetry to grace our palms??

    Yeah I thought they did
    there is just no pleasing some folks.

    Much love

    Sandy

    but, like i said, the people who read the forums (and whatnot) are not the average iphone user...

    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    1a) Yes, to use the methods I described, jail breaking was required. but that wasn't my arguement. The point I was making is that MMS was fully function on both the phone and on at&t's network.

    1b) There actually a way to enable MMS without being jail broiken, using a site like help.benm.at, which was became popular for enabling tethering, and later added the ability to enable MMS using the same APN info for MMS I refered to in my previous post.

    2) I have a strong feeling there are a lot more people with jail broken phones than Apple or at&t will let on; classic down-playing tactics at work here it seems to me, which if true, would make perfect sense, as Apple is dead set against jail breaking.

    1b Response-

    Or you could download a custom ipcc file, enter the following command into terminal:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE
    And option+click Upgrade to load the ipcc file.....

    I don't believe Apple have ever released estimates have they?
    The estimates (of anywhere from 5% to 10%) come from Saurik based on the number of unique devices accessing Cydia.
