Okay, I've been trying for ages and I'm at wit's end. I've tried whited00r and a few modifications from there, and that was a no go. I've also tried adding the smart-mobile repo which used to work evidently, but I can't seem to get it running.

I'm running a iPhone 2G with 3.1.3 on AT&T's network.

Is there something I missed? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thank you!

Sorry I can't help with your problem but... ever considered upgrading your phone? The 3GS's are Free with contract now adays.

At the iPhone hacks section.
The feature is blocked by AT&T on the original iphone.
Not much you can do about it, once their systems detects you're using a 2G it send you that link with the userID and password to enter to view it.

A few years ago, I was able to get this to work but it was only temporary. I would be able to send a few MMS and ten minutes later, it would fail. It was like AT&Ts system did something to block it from working. Lots of other people had the same problems.

I finally sold my original iPhone because it's really not good for anything anymore. You can't go back and get the unlimited data plan since that's also been patched.

That's what I was afraid of. :( Fortunately, I still have the unlimited data plan though. Anyway, thanks everyone. :)

I remember when I had the original iPhone, the battery barely lasted a day. Are you even able to use that for more than an hour now?

I mean, I don't use constantly, but yes it still runs like a champ! :D

Might go get the battery replaced by Apple one of these days, but so far so good.

I would like to know how to enable it too. So if you figure it out let me know.
