    Hi all, I apologize if this has already been asked. I didn't see it in the forum. My question is, will we have to pay extra for the MMS rolling out today? I have the normal iPhone plan with unlimited data and I pay extra to include 1500 texts. If I send pictures through MMS, is that included with the unlimited data part of the plan or am I charged with each picture I send?

    Another thing too - is MMS limited to just sending pictures or can music/sound be sent too?

    Thanks all for any help you can give to help clarify this.

    No, it will be a free "upgrade".

    You'll be able to send photos and videos.

    "In a new FAQ released by the telecom giant, news comes that MMS support will be provided "at no extra cost to customers with a text messaging bundle." Monthly charges for AT&T's text messaging varies depending upon the number of messages you choose to sign up for:

    * 200 messages per month: $5.00
    * 1,500 messages per month: $15.00
    * Unlimited messages: $20.00

    You can also choose not to elect a text-messaging plan and instead pay $0.20 per message - thankfully, an AT&T spokesperson told The Reg that the twenty-cent rate will continue for MMS messages."

    Yes you will pay - by having to deal with the gumming-up/crashing of the AT&T network from all the additional data flying around. :rolleyes:

    No, MMS counts in your 1500 texts
