    Hey guys

    For those that have been unable to get MMS & Tethering & VVM all working, I've made this IPCC. I have tested it on mine, my wife's and my friend's 3GS & 3G's. So far, it's working perfectly and no changes are needed to the network settings.

    MMS was also enabled WITHOUT calling AT&T. Simply by changing the phone type in my account, and selecting the shared unlimited messaging package. Once that was done I sent a single MMS with my old AT&T 8525 to verify that it worked.

    I hope this helps you guys and saves some troubles.

    No reason to sticky if it does not work for everyone. Tried it on my 3Gs and it didn't work. Tried resetting network settings, still nothing. Tried to reboot phone and still no go. I am on OS 3.1.

    I can't get it to work...for a different reasaon.

    I've emailed myself IPCC files before no problem. Now when I email it I can't click on the file and have install.

    It does nothing. Tried to put it on AirShare, no luck. Put it up on my SharePoint site and tried iShare, no luck. Tried my Gmail, Yahoo, and Exchange mail.

    It seems as tho 3.1 does some things a little different, When in the network, there is no voicemail apn for me, also it looks as tho it keeps verifying with the network to make sure your phone should be able to do mms. Which goes along with what someone said, ATT has to have a way to disable gen 1 phones from sending MMS which is stupid, but I can see it.

    As you know, by reading your NDA... 3.1 is beta and may not function the same as 3.0. This ipcc was made for 3.0 with a family messaging plan. Not 3.1. I am not an iPhone developer, so I have no access to 3.1 or it's documentation to verify support.

    Sorry.

    This doesn't work! I can't get it to be enabled on iTunes 8.2. I can enable my old carrier file, but not the new one. It's grey out. The file names are even identical.

    Try downloading it with Firefox. Safari has a habit of decompressing it.

    Can you verify that you are able to send with you iPhone SIM in a phone other than the iPhone? Also, you have a family shared messaging plan, and your phone number has something OTHER THAN an iphone listed?

    This isn't an offical ipcc file, you will have to install it via iTunes.

    All the other carrier files have let me tether and at one point I had a camera icon on my old 3g, I have a new 3gs and I cant get it to even let me try MMS (no camera). What am I doing wrong?

    Why are the MMS settings blank on the phone? I finally got to view the camera icon, but it won't let me send. I have all the proper settings as you are stating. Any ideas?

    Seems like MMS is a case by case basis. There seems to be no full proof way to get every iPhone to work. All we can do is try to copy someone else's settings. I'm just going to wait for AT&T.

    AT&T has been actively blocking MMS for iPhone users. That is why you have to send and receive an MMS on another type of phone first. That will unblock the MMS for a short time. That time can be 10 minutes up to 72 hours.

    Mine had been working for 2 days with that ipcc, and just stopped this morning. Though my VVM and tethering are still working fine.

    Hi,

    I've been looking for alternatives to the itunes 8.2 install that people mention as I don't have itunes 8.2 and the versions that I did download to my MAC still dont' allow you to install the IPCC file.

    As you're one of the few who has mentioned emailing IPCC's I was hoping you could give me some help on what needs to be done.

    For example, when I pull off the bundle file I want to replace from my phone I note that the format of the file is way different to XML based IPCC file I want to install. Is this something that gets converted during the install process?

    Many thanks in advance
    Barry

    iTunes can't be the only way to do it. I've tried every version of iTunes I can get on the MAC (including 8.2 (23))and none of them allow me to select the IPCC file (and yes I've used terminal first etc.)

    Has anyone got any other approaches that have worked for them? What about SSH?

    Thanks!

    How do I do the second step where you change your phone type and then change the messaging package? Do I need a family plan or just unlimited package? Can someone who got this to work post screen shots of what they did to change their AT&T account settings? Thanks
