    How do I use the Swirly MMS app?

    I am using T-mobile, how do I know what my settings are?

    Do I need to have a viewer as well as the app?

    I tried to find a video on youtube, but there aren't any.

    I could not for the life of me get this to work on my iphone, however, I went to SwirlyMMS site and they have settings that actually worked! I just tested it out and it works great. Here they are and enjoy!

    Ok, so these settings worked great (I was able to fetch the MMS), but I cannot view the pictures, it says I need another program, where do I get the program to view the files?

    Good question. I would assume that there would be a charge against your text messaging since there is no MMS plan for the iPhone. That is a guess though so maybe someone who's used this program and gotten a recent bill can chime in.

    This does NOT work for at&t what so ever. Even states this on their website.

    AT&T is doing something to block the use of SwirlyMMS. There is currently no way of using MMS on an iPhone with AT&T, even with 3rd party apps.

    I cannot get this to work! It is driving me crazy, I know I have the right settings and everything, because I can fetch the mms just fine. When I go into the finder app I can view the files, but only as tiny thumbnails (about 1/4 in.) I also am using the preview app, and the first time I tried it, it pulled up the picture and I could view it. But I have not been able to view a file with it since, it opens the app, but it is just a blank page.

    Is there another app that I need or that I can try?

    For those of you who can't get it to work through AT&T:

    I am not sure if AT&T will allow the sending and receiving of MMS if the iphone data plan is on the account.

    I'm using an old Media Works plan and can send and receive MMS fine, as that data plan includes 200 mms per month.

    I don't remember if it was this forum or one of the others, but I thought in order for swirlymms to work you have to call at&t and have them activate mms for your sim card. Could be wrong, but I could of sworn I read that some where....

    However I don't know if this still works or not thou..

    it does work with ATT.... a customer rep (my cousin) .. told me that apple does not want ATT to activate the feature that allows mms to be sent.. atleast not yet.. however if u call .. n speak to a rep long enough to get annoyed n tell them that ur payin for mms and the who texting service.. they SHOULD turn it on.. i guarantee u .. it is not a lie.. if u dont believe... try takin ur ATT sim and put it in an Unlocked/jailbroken iphone thats not registered to u.. fix the settings n it will work.

    mmsc.... mmsc.cingular.com
    proxy.... 066.209.011.032

    it does work .. just tell em to activate ... they'll come with some bs n ****.. but b firm.. ur payin for the feature.. i will post a video on youtube soon... under .. Babyfu69

    I did. It takes a while to be in effect though. Like I had my plan changed in the morning and it work towards the end of the day

    Also just FYI you will loose Visual voice mail. I just didn't care for it. I can now send a receive pictures :)
