    I also have a 3g iphone which has been jailbroken and baseband 6.15 but I still can't send or receive pictures. I'm with straight talk. These are the settings I have under Cellular Data. Someone please help me send pictures.

    Try changing your MMS APN to att.mvno instead of wap.cingular.

    Sorry... And change MMSC to http://mmsc.cingular.com

    The correct APN settings that worked for me (both my 3Gs and Palm Pre 2) are as follows:

    APN att.mvno
    Username blank
    Password blank

    Visual Voicemail

    APN acds.voicemail
    Username blank
    Password blank

    MMS

    APN att.mvno
    Username blank
    Password blank
    MMSC http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy 66.209.11.33:80
    MMS Max Message Size 1048576
    MMS UA Prof URL blank

    please note that BLANK means leave the space empty

    I would like to add a note to anyone trying to get an iPhone 3G to work on Straightalk. Yes, I was able to get everything working after updating the APN, Jailbreaking and tethering, however one thing I didn't find out until I had done all of this is that the Facebook app and Facebook Messenger app require at least iOS 4.3 and you can only go to 4.2.1 on the 3G. I'm sure many other apps require this too. So there I had my iPhone finally on Straightalk, but couldn't use many of the apps. I, myself, went back to using my LG75C. If I would have known this ahead of time I wouldn't have bothered with setting up the iPhone.
