how come someone can develop a UK MMs reader but nothing for the US yet?

    I have just tried that and it works great!

    I alo really like the fact it mimics the look of a proper iphone app as well.

    As far as I know it's because the ATT website only allows you to read your MMS messages via some flash based interface (which of course the iPhone doesn't support). The UK O2 website just using some web interface which also seems to allow you to directly pull the information you want when you provide your phone number and special code they give you when you get an MMS.

    Now, if only O2 had a service where you could email a photo to them along with someones phone number and they would get an MMS then would be covered on both sides!

    this looks very cool. Didn't know about it till I read this thread.

    my sister just sent me an mms, this app works very well:D:D:D:D


    only thing is its picked up mms that i had a couple of weeks ago and have since deleted the messages on my phone. in the app you can see the title of the pic and who sent it but obviously no pic. anyone else had this and know how to delete this from the app or will it be when the message has expired???

    This would be a great solution for the US. If true MMS isn't coming, then AT&T really needs to look at this idea.

    Well AT&T would have to start a whole new viewmymessage site just for iphone users because the current one is done in flash. Great planning.:rolleyes:

    Just to make it clear to guys in the US - this just lets us *view* MMS messages sent to us, not send them. Clearly that would require either a firmware upgrade of a jailbroken phone and app.
