    Hey, I did search for this but couldn't find a specific answer. Can you take a picture with your iphone and then send it to someone else's regular phone? Thanks !

    You can email them a photo if you know who their cellphone carrier is. Example: If they have Verizon then you would email the photo to their tel#@vzw.com
    There are other threads about this workaround where some other providers are detailed.

    Also, if you jailbreak your phone you can download swirleymms which does that.

    Neither sending to the phone's address or swirlymms work for me.

    Wow, so much for a top of the line phone. I am not bashing apple in any way as I'm going to get a 3g iphone when they come out. But it will be pretty embarassing when someone asks me to send them a pic on their phone and I say this $500 phone simply can't do that ! Is there any way they could make this happen with the new update and stuff in June ?

    you can get pictures you just can't send them.

    in my opinion MMS is dumb and useless.

    Like the guy above stated, its so easy to just email a photo to someone's cell. And it doesn't cost you a text!

    Don't understand why you'd be embarrassed since there are loads of iPhone features other phones don't have :confused:

    People expect it to have every feature there is out there. Can't have everything. Maybe in the future they'll add mms thru an update.

    i am HOPING they will add it through an update and NOT require you to purchase a new phone.. that would annoy me.. i held out until now because this was when i NEEDED to either cancel or renew my stupid verizon account.. So i couldnt wait any more.. so many people were talking about march being the month for the iphone 2.. oh well, now they say its JUNE.. whatever..


    But so far, the email feature has worked for us to send a picture to a cell phone.

    ... or maybe in the future all cell phones will have full html email capabilities like the iPhone instead of the outdated mms...

    Yes, let's THANK Apple for leaving out basic functionality that even free mobile phones include.

    You ≠ the rest of the world.

    Latest?

    Is this possible now? Even with iOS5 it seems like we can't send iPhone pictures to other phones via mms or Bluetooth.any alternatives? Not all my friends phones have email so that's not an option

    What? They've been able to mms for years! If you're sending and they aren't receiving, it's their phone's limitations, not the iPhone.

    You can't send a pic via bluetooth (that I know of), but you can send it via text (MMS).

    When I send mms to a Nokia or Sony Ericsson from my iPhone, it says error on my iPhone itself. I guess those phones are not mms capable.

    Is there a way to send pictures using bluetooth?

    I can send MMS to old sony ericssons and nokias, did it the other day.. I mean really old sony ericssons like the k850i, the more recent SE's should be able for it as well..

    MMS works just like any other phone on the iPhone.

    In that case there could be a problem with the carrier MMS setup on your iPhone. You should have the carrier check that out.


    But I've been doing it for years now, sending photos to all kinds of other phones,, smart and dumb. Even shared contacts over MMS a couple times. It works fine.
