    Default iPhone 3.0 O2 UK MMS + Tethering - How to enable
    I found this ipcc file. It contains the correct carrier settings for the iPhone for the new 3.0 firmware.

    files.me.com/baker.rk/dvah0m

    Password is: mmi



    Plug your iPhone into iTunes, and with

    Windows:
    Hold Shift + Click Update

    Mac:
    Hold Alt + Click Update

    Locate the ipcc file then click ok.

    It will take about 5 seconds to update.

    Then restart your iPhone.

    You can now share photos via MMS.

    And if you go to

    Settings>General>Network then Internet Tethering is an option.

    There was also a lag before when going to Settings>General>Network, there is now no lag whatsoever.

    PLEASE NOTE

    This is for the UK only.

    Just tested and sent an MMS fine, however, could not recieve one properly.

    For other countries, here is some info on building your own ipcc file:

    gist: 81465 - GitHub

    maybe we could get a little source of countries vs. carrier ipcc files?

    To get tethering to work you must have the 3.0 SDK installed on your Mac.

    And it looks like O2 have stopped all MMS support Tethering still works though (with the 3.0 sdk installed)

    Default SDK only needed for USB tethering
    You only need the SDK to use the USB cable for tethering. Bluetooth tethering just works on its own.

    Reeko: did you have MMS working with Beta 1 at all? I never had it working because my iPhone is on a business tariff. My colleague's personal tariff iPhone allowed MMS right away without any hassle. O2 was willing to enable MMS on my mobile number if I could provide our account password. I didn't know what it was at the time. Our Accounts team have thus far ignored my request to get it enabled.

    What I really need to know is if the new beta 7A259 kills tethering for either USB or bluetooth and stops MMS being an option. Has anyone that had these working updated to 7A259?

    I had used this ipcc http://drop.io/o2ukipcc I'm not sure if it's identical to the one you've used.

    Thanks in advance.

    works great

    I wish I could hit thanks to you but I'm afraid I went ahead and updated. Everything is working great already for me. I didn't even have to go through a Restore this time. Updating worked as though it were a 2.x update. I seem to be able to send MMS too now. Although I'm yet to receive an MMS because my MMS-capable friends are taking their time sending to me.

    At beta 1 i could send MMS, but recieving them was the sam old: log onto www.o2.com/m/ with your password stuff.

    I never got tethering to work at all. My bluetooth has been acting weird ever since installing the beta. My macbook and iphone cannot find eachother. it's very weird.

    Now with beta 2, MMS does not work at all and still the same old story with tethering.

    Can your friend on the personal tariff still MMS or tether?

    I also restored to the beta 2 instead of updating.

    Default I made one myself (o2-UK Payandgo carrier bundle)
    Ok, I made one myself but it was very hard so if anybody needs an o2-UK carrier profile for Payandgo, I will accept a donation of 2.50 (I promise; no scam) through paypal to [email protected] and in the comment leave a message identifying Payandgo or paymonthly and also the email You want it to be sent to. I will be happyto help!

    PS:
    I took days trying to find one on the Internet but I couldn't so I took 2 weeks building one myself and now mms and tethering works great. To enable receiving mms just give o2 a call and ask them to enable mms, no problem!

    Default I need payandgo ipcc :D
    Dude above me why are you charging ?

    The iphone community does so much for you and you want 2.50 for making a ipcc. I understand it may have took you a while but still. Why be so stingy ?


  17. #16
    ok yeah I have the same issue here. I can send via o2 but cannot recieve, just get the standard text message telling me to view it online :-( Anyone got a fix yet?

  18. #17

    Hi all. Not sure if this thread is still active but I hope so. I am running a fully legit version of 3.0 beta 4 on a standard UK o2 iphone 3g. I have downloaded the file in the first post on this website which downloads to my mac as 'O2_UK.bundle', and for the life of me I can't work out what to do with it.

    Have tried simply using it as is in iTunes but it doesn't work. I have converted the whole folder to the extension .ipcc and doesn't work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated??

    Chris

    Windows: hold shift + click update in itunes and then choose the file.

    Mac: hold alt + click update in itunes then choose the file.


    On beta 4 i have lost all MMS capabilities + the Messaging tab in settings now has no MMS options at all - guess O2 have made Apple remove it until the public release
