    Sorry to bother you guys with another MMS thread but this one is a little different. I've had MMS working since around January and in June the updated carrier file came out with the new MMS icon to send MMS and it worked well. Well today i restored my phone as a new phone and downloaded the carrier file and am running it on 5.0 but there is no MMS icon, what can i do to fix it does anyone know, thanks in advance for the help.

    Edit - If you want the latest hacked/updated carrier file 5.1 (includes MMS and Tethering) follow this link:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/255854728/ATT_US.ipcc.html

    Download the file, run terminal and input the following message

    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

    The reason you have to put in that message is because the latest itunes doesnt let you choose any .ipcc file but after you enter it, it will allow you to choose it as a restore point.

    So after you enter the message, option + click on the restore button and locate the 5.1 .ipcc file and open it and let it load. After it loads, restart your phone. You'll notice when you go into network settings, you'll have the choice to turn tethering on, and under messages you'll see MMS enabled along with the MMS icon next to the entry field. Whether MMS works on your phone or not is whether or not there is a block on your account for MMS.

    short answer- wait for it to be offically released by AT&T.

    or just try a hard reset of your phone. that should bring it up

    If all you did was load the carrier file, restart your phone, that'll bring it up.

    Something happened while loading the file, try to reload it, then restart.
    You may have to load 4.0 then 5.0 to get it back. I had to load 4.0 twice to remove the MMS and tethering options last week.

    4.5 is a legit AT&T file, hence, no tethering.
    The latest hacked carrier file is 5.1.
    I'd post it for you, but I'm posting from my phone, I'm at my brother's house right now.

    If you do a search on here, you can probably find it, it's here.

    Is MMS on under Messaging ?

    I am assuming that you checked to ensure that MMS was on under Messaging. That controls the camera as well.

    Do you have to be jailbroken to load that 5.0 file? Or can it be done easily just from itunes?
    Will that file enable MMS as soon as it is loaded onto the phone?

    How do you get it on the phone?

    Just download the file, open iTunes, choose 'Restore' while holding the option button. Choose the file you need and restore it.

    Are you on a messaging plan already? When you restore from that file does it just add the carrier update and leave everything else alone? Just asking, since you never know, this might go on for awhile.
