    Default SWIRLY not possible on iPhone with AT&T
    Well, i called AT&T yestereday and had them add the $.25 MMS to my iPhone, TehReaper did the same.

    Well it worked perfect for both of us for a day...

    Now the next day no more.

    TehReaper called back today and they told him the system resets it every night and there's no way around it!

    So Swirly is not possible on AT&T legit iPhones...

    yup i talked to lady for a good 10 minutes seeing if there was a way around it she said no.Because the iphones data plan does not originally allow MMS so the system resets it every night...

    Me too.
    I am on ATT and I can send and receive.
    All I can think of is that I was with ATT before I got the Iphone and had mms provisioned. Now I have the Iphone and mms works. So maybe because I had it before, it works.

    Did any of you have it before?

    Good luck

    i signed up with at&t as i got the iphone. but the real thing that makes mine different (i think) is that im on a family plan with a family shared messaging package.
    hit thanks if thanks are due.

    This sucks because the iPhone was made for AT&T and this is the only service that SwirlMMS does not work for. LOL Swirly even work in Sweden

    Settings are fine, it worked perfect when i called and told them to add the MMS. Same deal for tehreaper!

    Are you guys on a family plan?

    Also about the settings not being correct, i put the sim in my SLVR and i got the user barred message. So it's definately not settings

    See my post here: http://www.everythingicafe.com/forum...d-t-24506.html

    Seems to be the only workaround right now really. I did the same thing calling up...but instead of adding the pay per message, I got the regular unlimited messaging plan added that is NOT the iPhone + unlimited texting plan; I added iPhone + 200 package plus the unlimited texting.

    YMMV

    Well thsnks to TehReaper we've figured it out.

    In order to get it to work you can put your iPhone on a family plan and add the iPhone data plan to you iPhone of course.

    Add the family messaging plan and viola! MMS on the iPhone WITH Visual Voicemail! =]

    I'm interested to know Nate, do you know if that is a regular Family plan? There is an iphone specific Family Plan that includes the data plan, but the same problem may arise in trying to add MMS. I'm guessing you're talking about the reg. Family Plan though.
    Cut and paste your but.

    Yeah, i have the regular family plan with 550 minutes. Then i had them add the unlimited data to only my iPhone (which as far as they know it's a RAZR)
