    Default Easiest way to get mms on a 3.0 3gs
    goto cydia and download FWChanger which is a firmware spoofer.
    goto the app.
    Type in 3.1 in the firmware text field and push "set custom firmware"
    Next power off and on your phone.
    now plug it into your computer and pull up itunes(im using 9.0.1) or whatever the most up to date itunes is.
    it will show your phone as having firmware 3.1 click on check for update.
    If it does not pop up change the FW to a different one then back and try again. may have to try it a couple of times.
    It will not tell you about a FW update but instead it will show a carrier update. download and install on your phone.
    When its done, disconnect your phone and power off and on again.
    Check your text app and you will now see the camera beside the text field!!

    I take no credit for the FWChanger app.
    I only thought of using it to trick itunes into letting me get the carrier update.

    Effects may vary based upon phone, firmware, and itunes version.

    You can download the updated carrier file linked in a few places here.....

    Then install it through itunes.

    If you look on the main page news, thread about MMS.....the first reply is by "StealthBravo" (He actually has a thread dedicated to MMS with instructions), in his post he linked a modified carrier update file which works perfectly.

    That way you dont have to mess with itunes prompting for an update


    PS- Im not trying to crash your party, dont take it the wrong way.....Im sure this is going to help some people.
