    Today TeliaSonera announced all the plans and prices in whole Scandinavia, but the "exciting" part about this, is Telia Denmark has send press material out to.. yeaah the press :p

    While MMS isn't mentioned on it's mentioned here (as unlimtied MMS), it's Apple designed, clearly not Telia, because of that I believe MMS will be available.

    Good find, although it could just be a mistake as MMS wasn't an accidental omission.

    Since the iPhone can not handle MMS why should they charge you for it? ;)

    He just says that MMS is both mentioned in the press release and in the graphic send from Telia.

    I could live without MMS, but it's still interessting.

    I could live without it, but it would be nice to shut the others up about the iPhone lacking it as a must have feature.

    Okay, I'm swedish but I'll try.

    "MM is mentioned both here on the graphics, that is being shown on this page, that I have received from Telia and on the press release that I have also received. If this is an error or "slip of the tongue", I dont know."

    Looks like it's just a mention from the blog author that he isn't sure if it's true or typo.

    From Google Translator:

    I'm not really excited by MMS, per se -- never used it before, won't use it now -- but I AM excited that this could possibly mean other minor updates coming in 2.0 that we haven't seen yet. :D

    Agreed. Honestly, there have been a few times where I would have liked it, but on the whole, I haven't missed it. However, it does seem like a big omission for such a high-end phone.

    My last 4 phones have all has MMS and I have N E V E R used this function. I'm totally disinterested in having this 'must have ' function.

    That said it does seem odd apple don't include it. oh well

    I have already acclimated to sending and receiving MMS messages by email. I was able to inform everyone that sends me MMS messages to just add my email to my contact on their phone and direct the MMS to it, and they all have. It works every time, requires no extra steps on my part or theirs, and it makes it easier for me to get the pictures I want saved to my computer.

    That said, I don't care if they ever add MMS and I actually kind of hope they don't give in. The entire crowd of people pissing and moaning over not having MMS is very reminiscent of the times when Apple stopped including floppy drives in their computers. Not to mention it is comical to see how worked up people get over it not being there, and even more comical to see how angry they get when you try to explain how easy it is to use email as a work around.

    This is how I would interpret this. This is a standard template of services TeliaSonera offer on thier phone contracts, and MMS is obviously not chargable as the iPhone 3G is not capable of it.

    There is no way I am EVER going to believe the iPhone is NOT capable of MMS. A phone that is this advanced has to be capable of it, it's just not enabled yet.

    all you people saying that you have gotten "acclimated to sending them through email" can just stop it. dont try and tell me you would rather send via email. and quit saying that it is not a feature this phone should have. if it was not a good feature then why do 80% of the phones in the US have it. its a feature we need to have and thats it. while i dont use it at all (mainly because i cant) i hate getting pictures and having to go on my computer to view it because my phone doesnt have flash (but thats a another story in itself)

    I'm sorry but I guess I didn't get the memo saying that I am not allowed to be pleased with using email in place of MMS just because it bothers you. I am sorry that I understand how to do it and that it works great for me, but I shouldn't and I should instead piss and moan about it to make you happy.

    Let's see... On my BlackBerry, the steps were as follows:

    1. Open the Messages account
    2. Hit menu > compose MMS
    3. Highlight the "to" field and enter a phone number or contact
    4. Write the subject line and body message
    5. Hit menu > attach picture
    6. Scroll through my pictures and find the one I want
    7. After it attaches, hit menu > send

    On my iPhone it is...

    1. Open Photos
    2. Choose a photo
    3. Hit send as email
    4. Choose a contact's phone's MMS email address instead of their phone number (which I have saved to every contact that I actually send/receive MMS messages from/to)
    5. Write the subject line and body message
    6. Hit send

    Wow, that was so much harder. You're right! What was I thinking for not being bothered by that? Oh, the nerve of me! Damn Apple for making my life so much more difficult! Damn you to hell! Just like when you had the forethought to stop including floppy drives, you awful, awful company!

    Does that work better for you? :rolleyes:

    MMS is instant, not all email is push yet, alot more people have MMS capable phones than configured email on their phone.
    It's not like they'd have to have additional hardware to support it, just an extra button taking up a bit of extra screen real estate.

    Do these MMS on the iphone idea haters just hate it because they are sick of hearing people requesting it or is there another reason?

    I don't hate the idea of MMS, I just would never use it. Like many others have said, if I want to send a picture to someone I'll just email it to them. That's what comes naturally to me and I would do the same thing even if the phone did have MMS. My 14 yo niece complains from time to time of the lack of MMS on her iPhone, but I'm sure if she knew how to send and receive via email she would see it as a viable alternative. I can't really say because I've never used MMS and therefore don't miss it.

    @CrazEtooN, ha ha. That was sarcasm at its finest.

    Agreed. There is no absolute need for MMS on the iPhone. I, and everyone I know would always rather email.

    In fact, I would never use MMS.
