    It is my understanding (which is very limited on this subject) that a jailbroke phone on AT&T still cannot MMS. Is this correct? If so, what other advanted might I gain from jailbreaking?

    Thanks much for any help.

    Duke, what do you mean not native if jailbreak? Does this mean I can get an app on an iphone that is not jailbroken to MMS or it must be jailbroken to MMS? Thanks much for any info.
