Wife frustrated w/ 2G not working right w/ tmobile and mmc's
just a little background. Gave the wife my old 2g for use with tmobile. It's unlocked, running 3.1.3, and has the patch to allow mmc messages. She has an old samsung query phone with contract that runs out in february. I thought I had this thing working good for her more once but she's been complaining that half the time mmc's from others don't come thru. I've checked and changed the network settings a few times according to the website's settings for tmobile. The ones I send to her go thru fine immediately. She can send me picture messages and I get them. But others at her work send to her and she either never gets them all or they may sometimes come thru an hour later. Well I just bought her a 3gs on eBay today since the unlock just came out today. I did install the tmobile USA pack from cydia for the 2g. I thought she would be excited about the new phone but she's disgusted with the picture messages not being reliable for the iPhone with tmo. Can I expect any better luck with the 3gs on tmobile once I get it? Thanks.

You should...unless it's a network related issue which no one can control. I know AT&T had those problems but I've had good experiences with T-mobile and MMS. Make sure you don't use the 2G bundle on the 3GS though.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

Yes, you can use spirit or redsn0w to jailbreak 3.1.3. All basebands have now been unlocked so there's no issue with that either. I used redsn0w and ultrasn0w when I was on 3.1.3. Remember to stay away from 4.0 until 3GS phones have been cleared with a usable jailbreak (unlock already out for 3GS, but no jailbreak yet). After that, you just have to download a carrier bundle according to your data plan - I can point you to the right one if you tell me which one you haveIf I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

Oh ok. Don't use the T-mobile's site settings, they're garbage. I would go with ultrasn0w since it's confirmed to unlock all basebands.
Once you get it unlocked, go into cydia and search for "T-mobile US Postpaid/flexpaid" and download the first result. This will enable sending/receiving of high-res MMS.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

OK thanks. I'll do that as soon as I get the new phone (probably end of week). I believe I did download that pack the second time around but there were two packages listed in Cydia and both said the same thing for the description. I think I may have installed the second one. What's the difference, they both said Tmobile US Postpaid I thought?

The second one's for the blackberry plan, which is probably why it was giving you issuesIf I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->
