    I've never been able to get MMS to work on 5.1.1 (3gs 16gb, older bootrom - if that's the correct term). I've tried all the patches and fixes and could never get it to work. I rolled back to 5.0.1 and everything works perfectly.

    No idea why but that's how this one rolls.


    I figured what the heck I'd give it another try (what did I have to lose except a little more time). I updated the 3GS to 5.1.1 got T-Mo to work and of course iMessage would not. I then took Zeppy's direction and link ( and followed it to the T and low and behold it worked! I do think that I figured out the missing point to all of it and that is the removal of the SIM and then the rebooting of the device TWICE when told to do so. The only piece that I did a bit differently is previous to installing SAM's I input the MMS and all the other settings in the Cell Data area. But I truly believe the key point is to reboot the device twice.

    All is good (and I still see 3G in a few areas).
