    So I have AT&T's text plan. Around $5-6 for 200 messages.

    If I have the text plan and use ActivateMMS2G on my iPhone 2G, and start sending MMS, will there be a penalty for using this feature? I bought my iPhone off of eBay and unlocked/jailbroke it so I didn't have to activate it. I don't have any data plan.

    Thank you.

    I don't know if it applies here or not, but I was using Swirly for MMS, and AT&T was charging me $0.30 for each message.
    I have the standard 1500 message plan.

    The 200 messages (both incoming & outgoing count toward total) for $5 is same as I have.

    If you send & receive more than 200 total, you will pay for each message over 200, but I have no idea how much per message.

    If you don't have a data plan, either get one or have the data functions of your phone disabled, or AT&T can lock out data transfer from their end.

    There should be a back up from when you installed 3.0, at least.

    I would recommend switching to a media net plan, it worked for me when I had swirly, yes I lost Visual Voice mail but I didn't get charged extra or anything
