    Post MMS/Tethering working for you on 3.0 B5 (Beta 5)?
    Just curious if anyone besides myself is on 3.0 B5 w/o MMS/Tethering. I tried to use the ipcc but itunes wouldn't recognize the file.

    You have to use the iTunes 8.2 that was released with beta 4.
    Not the latest that came out with beta 5.

    Then you can use the ipcc file.

    Here is what my settings look like.

    deleted the setting i had, and it auto-fills with these settings. when i go and delete those, it reauto-fills them every time.

    does that have to do with the ipcc file i am using?

    Did you do a restart???

  16. #16
    yeah thats when everything went away. i am going to try a fresh restore with this ipcc


    ****UPDATE****

    fresh restore gave me back the MMS and tethering options. but still no luck with MMS.

    i am trying my phone number on the media net site. and it is telling me that my phone is not elligable, but this is what my ATT account is saying

    Hmm.. when installing the IPCC from Zwayne I lost MMS settings. I think I've tried 5 different IPCC's but no luck

  18. #18
    I am not sure if posting the IPCC file is allowed here - but its readily available online....

    STEP BY STEP GUIDE FOR DIFFERENT COUNTRIES:

    UK
    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.

    US

    Here is a little guide on Tethering and enabling MMS for iPhone 3G only. iPhone OS 3.0 is required to get MMS!

    HOW TO ENABLE TETHERING ON YOUR 3.0 iPhone:

    Step 1: Check if you own a 3G iPhone. If you’re on EDGE (as I am): sorry. Tethering does not
    seem to work with EDGE phones.

    Step 2: Check to see if AT&T is your carrier. If it is: sorry. AT&T will not let you tether.

    Step 3: Navigate to ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Carrier Support. Notice the spaces in that last
    folder name! If you’re at the command line, use backslashes to escape the spaces, i.e.
    cd ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone\ Carrier\ Support. You will find a file with an ipcc extension.
    Copy that file: e.g. cp foo.ipcc foo.ipcc.original. This creates a backup for when you mess up.

    Step 4: Rename the ipcc extension to zip. For me that was ATT_US.ipcc renamed to ATT_US.zip.
    (Did I mention how I’m on a 1st Gen iPhone with AT&T?). Unzip it. This creates a new folder
    called Payload.

    Step 5: Navigate into Payload and then into the folder under that. Mine was called ATT_US.bundle.
    Yours will differ. Inside that folder you will find three files that you will
    edit: Info.plist, version.plist, and carrier.plist. Open all three in the Property List
    Editor that comes with the dev tools on a Mac.

    Step 6: In Info.plist, change the CFBundleVersion to 5.0. Save.

    Step 7: In the version.plist, change the CFBundleVersion to 5.0. Save.

    Step 8: In carrier.plist do the following and then save:

    (a) Add a new dictionary to the apns array:
    apn = internet
    password = password
    username = iphone

    (b) In the wap dictionary (mine is wap.cingular, sts’s was wap.dol.ie), add a new pair.
    Do not edit the password or username: type-mask = (NUMBER) -2

    (c) Add a new pair at the top level dictionary of the carrier.plist file. (We’re not
    sure this is strictly speaking necessary but go ahead and do it.): AllowEDGEEditing
    = (BOOLEAN) YES

    Step 9: Zip up the Payload folder in which you just made your edits. Rename it to the same name as
    the original ipcc file. (For me that was ATT_US.ipcc).

    Step 10: Connect your iPhone to iTunes.

    Step 11: In the Summary tab, option-click “Check for Update”. Navigate to your ipcc file, select it.
    It takes no more than a second or two to update.

    Step 12: Reboot your iPhone.

    Step 13: In prefs (on the phone) navigate to Settings > General > Network.

    Step 14: Let me know how this worked for you.

    HOW TO FIND A CARRIER IPCC FILE:

    curl -s -L http://phobos.apple.com/version | grep -i carrier

    via here: gist: 81465 - GitHub

    US AT&T Customers: I don’t have specific details on adding tethering to your account but just
    give AT&T a call. They’ll help with the billing.

    How to Enable MMS for the iPhone 3G With OS 3.0 on AT&T.

    1-2) AT&T does not support this officially yet. There have been some reports of problems associated with
    enabling MMS on AT&T.

    This requires an iPhone 3G loaded with the iPhone OS 3.0 and 3.0 SDK installed onto a Mac with
    Leopard 10.5.

    Step 1) Prepare the ATT_US.ipcc

    Follow steps 1 - 7

    1) Under Root in carrier.plist add:

    AllowEDGEEditing Boolean Checked
    AllowMMSCEditing Boolean Checked
    AllowMMSEditing Boolean Checked

    2) Add the following:

    Quote:
    In the wap dictionary (mine is wap.cingular, sts’s was wap.dol.ie), add a new pair. Do not edit
    the password or username: type-mask = (NUMBER) -2

    3) Under root in carrier.plist also add:

    mms_proxy String 066.209.011.032
    mms_proxy_port String 80
    mmsc String http://mmsc.cingular.com

    Now follow Steps 9 - 12 to finish preparing the ATT_US.ipcc.

    Step 2) Enable MMS on your account at at&t.

    Same with me. but i did a restore and got everything back. its just not sending MMS for me. i can use tethering on my PC but when i go to use it on my macbook or iMac, it changes my setting and tells me to contact ATT to set up tethering on my account!


    @inshadesofgrey

    Yeah I notice that when they updated to beta 5 those options vanished. But what I take in from you guys is to run that file and it comes back? I'll give it a shot when I get home to my computer and see. Now big question, does this mean apple is raising the possibilty of diminishing mms for the iPhone like they gave up?

    yeah zwayne i'm trying your ipcc and trying to match your settings yet i have no luck either. atleast not yet. i'm gonna keep trying
