    What settings I'm using that have everything working;

    (Pics received are still blurry, but not near as bad as they were, and it doesn't take 2hrs to send/receive!)

    NOTE!: Do not use "internet2.voicestream.com" as your cellular data APN, it blocks email and internet since it isn't a recognized cellular data network setting. It took me 6 hours to figure that out!

    CELLULAR DATA
    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username: guest
    Password: guest

    MMS
    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username:
    Password:
    MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
    MMS Max Message Size: 614400
    MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf

    I got these from StealthBravo, so please thank him if it works for you...

    I have the G1 plan through Tmo, don't know if that makes a difference, but when I tried to use that it couldn't connect. I could text and call just fine, but no youtube, email, internet, etc...

    MMS does not require a data plan but does require a messaging plan (someone correct me if thats incorrect as I have both an unlimited data and messaging plan.)
    But I thought that the MMS messages were sent through the sms servers, not the data...... hmmm now I'm curious to know for sure. Hopefully though I'm not misleading you in my first statement.

    1. Download this file: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    2. Change the file extension to .ipcc if your computer saves it as a .zip
    3. Connect your iPhone to iTunes
    4. Hold Option (Shift on PC) and click "Check for Update"
    5. Choose the .ipcc file
    That should be it. You should notice that your "T-Mobile" in the top left corner looks a little different, or "squashed" horizontally. I don't know why this happens, but hey, at least the spinny wheel in the status bar won't be on the right side of the clock between 10:00 and 12:59 anymore.
    ok. when I'm following your instructions the .ipcc file is grey... what do I do wrong?

    Here's for the mac people!

    Mac - open a terminal and type in..
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE
    THANKS A BUNCH DUDE!!! I was doomed for days looking for a solution 'cause I didn't have the "cellular data network" switch in my general>network. So I downloaded the .ipcc file than followed your instractions and TA-DAAA! It's there! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! YOU THE BEST!

    For some reason clicking on "quote" didn't quote the above message, so I just cut and pasted it...

    Anyway, I've also been using internet2.voicestream.com for years and it's always worked.

    Moving on - I opened the above link "http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf" and noticed towards the bottom,
    "<prf:MmsMaxMessageSize>1048576</prf:MmsMaxMessageSize>".....

    I wonder if I stop using SwirlyMMS2 and use the built-in MMS and
    put "1048576" into the "MMS Max Message Size" field, if it'll
    work and not give me blurry pixle-ated messages....?

    I will try and post my results.


    EDIT: Ok, it didn't work - picture still came in all crappy and blurry - oh well - I paid $12 for SwirlyMMS2 and I love it, so I'll keep on using it.

    this might be a dumb question but,....is it safe to say one would need to enable edge using sbsettings in order to send/receive MMS? wouldn't the phone need to constantly check for the incoming MMSs and thus decrease its battery life?

    [QUOTE=chinh;4544731]not sure about what's already posted but i fell for those stupid sites... for my 3g 3.0 tmobile

    mms==

    Go to Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network and type in exactly :
    Cellular Data=
    APN: epc.tmobile.com
    Username:
    Password:

    Visual Voicemail=
    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username:
    Password:
    MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    MMS Proxy 216.155.165.50:8080
    MMS Max Message Size:
    MMS UA Prof URL:

    Once settings are entered restart ur phone and the little camera icon should show in the Messages.

    that work as far as to get the camera icon and send and receive pic, but i have never ever see such a bad quality pic, never.i hope there will be a fix for that other wise is useless.

    Seriously, just call tmobile, they FULLY support your use of iPhone on their network. They will walk you through every step. I did a clients phone for tmobile and had lost my list of settings I called them and they quickly and efficiently helped me set up APN AND MMMS! They were very helpful and nice and the tech support guy I spoke with had an unlocked Iphone on tmobile. Heres the number 877-537-7389. Who loves ya?

    To set up your i phone 3GS on T-Mobile network to receive and send MMS messages, obviously you must have a internet plan and follow these instructions:
    1- settings>General>Network
    a- Disable the 3G
    b- Cellular data network:
    APN> type : wap.voicestream.com, username and password blank.
    MMS> type : wap.voicestream.com, username and password blank.
    MMSC> type: http://216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    MMS> Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
    MMS maximum message size: 307200
    it shouldwork fine but again you must have a data plan with T-mobile
