Unfortunately, as much as I want this to be fixed, it's a bit more complicated than it seems.

Maybe a carrier file modification? Or, who knows maybe you can call T-mobile and tell them to fix it on their end

Basically, there needs to be some kind of patch for the iphone that registers the phone as something else. I dont think IMEI matters but if the iphone registers as a razr or something else, all would be fixed. Like the earlier poster said, it worked fine in swirleymms when registering as a different phone.

okay guys, i'm not even on OS 3.0 yet so i cant test this myself so im asking someone to experiment for me here (im not liable for your damages ;p)
i remember when i couldnt get swirly to work i had to go to this website to get tmobile to send me some settings directly and then it got me going with swirly.
the site is: T-Mobile Wireless Data Configurator
follow these steps:
1. click begin, choose sony erirsson for manufacturer
2. choose W800i for handset
3. select Picture Messaging (MMS) as the service
4. fill in the captcha and your mobile number and click send configuration
now when i did back in swirly, it sent an mms with some config settings and swirly asked me if i wanted to use those configurations, i clicked yes and it did some stuff automatically and got swirly working for me
im not sure how the MMS will show up with the intergrated SMS/MMS app in 3.0 but its worth a try
i'll probably be loading 3.0 onto my phone tomorrow so i'll test it out myself and update my post with my findingss

ok so i did some experimenting sending MMS to my friend's Palm Pre on sprint and Black Berry Curve on Tmobile and they both received my pictures perfectly. It was only when I was sending my MMS to another Iphone on Tmobile that we got the bad resolution problem. What have you guys experienced?
06-27-2009, 04:24 PM #30
I have the same poblem, when I send to any normal phone, they get really good resolution. But when I receive from anyone or send myself an mms, it sucks. So we conclude it's t
mobiles fault, hopefully it can be patched. They recognize the iPhone as not compatible and lower the res. It's probably ilegal to make it compatible tho

Called Tmobile, Their teir 3 support for unsupported devices says stick with swirly for now.
He could not find a good reason for the poor incoming message quality, or a setting to rectify it.

Ok everytime I add a APN in my MMS settings it goes away but all the other settings stay there. any one know why?
06-28-2009, 11:51 PM #36
ive tried the nokia n95 for a user agent in the UA prof url in settings does no good, its only on incoming so theres gotta be a setting in the iphone that drops the resolution when it comes to the phone, because it worked on swirly no problem, cant be a t-mobile thing

has anyone tried sending pictures to your [email protected]? my cousin who works for t-mobile told me to try this cuz MMS resizes pictures while emailing it wouldnt but when i tried it the picture still comes out crappy when i recieve it.
06-30-2009, 09:27 AM #39
Yea but that defeats the whole purpose of number-to-number MMS. I think it has something to do with the "Max image size" setting. We need to figure that one out in the MMS settings
