I have an iPhone 3GS on 4.1. I finally managed to get MMS working; I'm able to send and receive just fine. However, since I don't have a data plan, I take advantage of the new option of turning off cellular data. But when I turn this option off, my MMS doesn't work. I know that you don't need to have a data plan to send MMS, so is there a way to fix this?
I want data disabled but I want to also be able to send MMS...

Not possible. The simple fact is that tmobile uses cellular data to send mms messages. They don't cost any extra, but it does utilize the network. Sorry. The easiest way around your issue would be to install SBSettings from cydia and just toggle cellular data on when you want to send an mms.

What about receiving MMS? If cellular data is off, will I not be able to receive MMS messages?

Yeah...good point...better to just leave cellular data on...heck, you can get unlimited data thru tmo for 10 bucks a month if you do it right anyways

I also hear that sometimes when loading up Safari it redirects you to the T-Mobile account page saying that you have the wrong internet package. I don't want this to happen..

You don't really have to put the sim in a new phone...just go to your mytmobile account, select a shadow as your phone, and add the unlimited shadow data package...then install the legacy bundle from spookyET's thread stickied at the top of the tmobile forum and you'll be good to go...shouldn't see any upgrade pages in safari.
