Thread: MMS with Tmobile iPhone

  1. #1
    Default MMS with Tmobile iPhone
    Has anyone had any luck getting MMS to work with the iPhone on T-Mobile. I'm 1.13 using total internet ($19.99 plan). I tried to install and configure StickyMMS but when i install and try to launch it returns to the home screen. I seen to havd the same issue with iRadio. Any thoughts or is it just me being new?

    I have the same issue with StickyMMS when I installed it yesterday. It also did weird things with my Wifi too. After I would use the StickyMMS it would go to the home page and I'd have to restart Wifi.


    Any suggestions for Other programs that do MMS?

    I found the link on Tmobile for the manual settings to use the MMS.

    Install the latest version of swirly. It should be 0.3.2

    Might have to add the source and refresh.

    It works for me. I'm on FW 1.1.1, upgraded from 1.0.2. I took the settings from the post in the news forum and it works well. I don't need to turn off wifi or anything to send or receive. I just followed the instructions i.e., uninstall old version, add swirly source, install from swirly source, used settings in first post.

    I did this on two phones. The second phone I had an issue with SwirylyMMS crashing but after a complete reboots of the phone it hasn't happened again. I didn't have to add the Total Internet plan nor do I use the $5.99 Tzones hack. It just worked.

    Thanks all! Installed 0.3.2 rebooted, added settings rebooted again and success. Had to turn off WiFi and go directly via Edge.

    Just got it to work. I finally went into the Tmobile store with an old phone I knew worked with MMS. The two of us were not able to get it to work on the old phone I had so we spent an hour on the phone with there techs trying to get the setting correct. After it worked on that phone I plugged in the settings floating around and it works just fine.

    Although after I restarted the program and checked it later the wap.voicestream.com address disappeared out of setting. ...but it still works, so I'm not messing with that part of it.

    Weird part is that when I sent the test message to myself the pic is upside down. Anyone had that experience?

    Finished installing "Finder" and "MobilePreview" and those work great.

    Guys, I am on 1.1.2 unlocked and jailbroken, I get to where it says fetch, then i press on the picture message itself, like where it says the phone number, and it says to go to fetch in, like the files, var/media/MMS, not in the right order, not looking at it right now, but, something to the effect, so I go into squid, and go in the order that it says, but, then it just shows me the settings?? So what do I do from there? OR maybe my settings are not right? Can someone help me with this? Thanks ya'll

    try installing Finder, then Finder Preview.

    I saw that in another post about SwirlyMMS and it works. Now I just need to figure out why it turns the image when it is sent.

    Use the APN and other settings listed on the swirly website. I think I am running SwirlyMMS 0.3.5 now.

    The icon in the corner turned Green when i got them right.http://swirlyspace.com/iphone/apps/mms/settings.html

    The Tmobile USA is about 2/3 of the way down.

    Thumbs up Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You are the greatest. Works like a charm.
    TMobile rocks by the way!
    All we need now is for TMobile to get the same 3g frequency as the rest of the world.
    But I know it's the FCC's fault
