    But to get MMS to work DO NOT ACTIVATE THROUGH iTUNES!

    Just unlock your phone and have ATT activate your SIM.
    and have you confirmed this working?

    just got off the phone with my local att, I told the woman that I misplaced my sim, because I switch it between phones, she said "just come to any att store and pick up a new one." when I asked how much it costs, she said it was free. Can anyone confirm that a sim that is activated by ATT(not itunes) works with getting swirly mms working? I dont want to have to go down there and spend a bunch of time if it is not going to work

    Yeah, if you go to a corporate AT&T store they won't charge you, independent one's will.

    I HAVE AN AT&T ACTIVATED SIM THAT WORKS WITH SWIRLY AND SAFARI!

    I have 1.1.4 jailbroken activated and unlocked with ZiPhone.

    But my AT&T activated SIM is my girlfriends so I'm gonna pick up a new one for my iPhone tomorrow morning.

    NOTE: You need another phone in order to have them activate it. you can't just go in and tell them to activate a SIM. You need an IMEI on your account. I'm gonna bring my SLVR in tomorrow.

    ok this is what I came up with the sim cards that have been activated through itunes will not work. I have 2 other sim cards from att and when I put them in I was able to send and receive mms. But as soon as I put the sim card that I activated through itunes back in I got the error message again. I went to att and told them I lost my sim card they ask for the number and I gave it to them and had to verify some information to make sure u is the owner of the account and they gave me a new sim card already programed with my number for free of course you can not tell them u have an iphone, I just told them I no longer have an iphone. I put that sim in and what do u know I can send and receive with no problems.

    What I did I called in to customer services and told them I need to add the iphone package to my account, that for some reason it got removed by mistake.

    As long as the sim is not activated through itunes its ok to send and receive mms. I took the sim from my friend who activated they sim through itunes and guess what the message appeared again. When i put the sim back in that wasn't activated through itunes I was able to send and receive again.

    I tryed everything u can think of and this is the only thing that worked. When I had the 3.2 version of swirly I had no problems but when I upgraded thats when all the problems begain.

    Won't having the iphone package back on your phone get you flagged cdwardell?
    Tune in
    Turn on
    Drop out

  12. #72
    no because when u get the new sim from the store it will already be programed with your number, Its only flagging the sim if it was activated through itunes.

  13. #73
    does that mean I can just get a new sim and have att activate, simple as that. or do I have to bring in a different phone and lie about switching phones? in which case, i would have to unlock my iphone to use this new sim

  14. #74
    Yes you would have to unlock your iphone to use the new sim. As of now att is blocking all itunes activated sims from receiving mms.

    Now I have a couple of friends who phone is not unlocked and they are using the 3.2 version of swirly and it works just fine for them.

    Okay well i went to AT&T and they gave me my new SIM and i called and had them activate it. At first it didn't work but now it is.

    So we've figured it out once again!:

    In order to use SWIRL on your Cingular phone you need a SIM activated through AT&T, NOT iTUNES!

    NOW, if you add the iPhone data plan to your AT&T activated SIM will you have SWIRLY and Visual Voicemail? We need some people to comfirm this...

    So i lost my iPhone; so I need to get a new sim to use in my Blackjack. If I ever find my iPhone, can I have them add back my iPhone data package ;-)

    Based on the discussion above, it sounds like 3.2 should no longer work; anyone have a copy that I can try

    What i was referring to the few message bove that say some people still have 0.3.2 working with the original iPhone sim (which based on other feedback above -- and a discussion I had last night with AT&T technical support, shouldn't work)... sorry for the confusion.

  20. #80
    I had 3.2 stop working when ATT blocked the service. It also continued to not work after the upgrade to 3.6

    I can confirm that changing the IMEI DOES NOT WORK. I tried this alone as well as with the swirlymms program to make it think its a different phone.

    Sounds like we need to get this SIM stuff figured out and well be all good!

    I just put the SIM from my work blackberry in and tried to fetch the one message. It download a text file that says "Service denied"...obviously since the original message was from the old SIM.

    I was able to send and recieve messages on this alternate ATT SIM fine through Swirly after that.
