    My friend just happened to send me a picture today on my iPhone and it went threw!!!! I haven't hacked my phone. I had a buddy put my phone on 3.1 but that is it. I am not a developer myself but my phone is registered so I can use the updated software. My gfs phone is also 3.1 but she can't send or recieve pictures. I have sent pictures to 4 different ppl and it works like a charm. I can't believe it. I have a feeling 3.1 will be official and MMS capable very soon.

    That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. 3.1 has nothing to do with MMS.

    I'm really not trying to pull anyone's leg. I am on ATT and live in Indiana. I encourage other ppl to at least try it and I bet some of you will be able to. I dont know what else I could do to prove it but I am being dead serious.

    other than the fact that 3.1 will probably update the messages app so that the camera button on the left side of the text box will show up

    But what do I know? ;)

    Thought you said your girlfriend couldn't receive pictures...

    Or the fact that MMS works perfectly fine on 3.0.1 in virtually every other country.

    It's already been shown that those with 3.1 can get MMS. We've had a number of members that got it to work after OS 3.1.

    It isn't an update to the messages app, just an update to the carrier file. 3.0 already is MMS capable, but since the carrier file currently on the iPhone in the US does not have the MMS settings, the messages app doesn't show the camera or the preference in the messages panel in settings.

    I didn't update carrier settings anytime recently. And that isn't my gf. Why would my gf not have seen my dog yet? Believe me or not just try it and some of you will see. I also couldn't send or recieve pictures until today and I've had 3.1 since it came out each time. It just happened. I have friends always trying to send me stuff and it never comes threw. It just happened today. My gf has 3.1 and can't send or recieve mms.

    The software cripples itself when the proper carrier file isn't in place. It's likely that the 3.1 update comes with the new AT&T carrier file. Skil, unless you're sure about something keep your trap closed. Or at least stop stating it as fact. When was the last time you were right about anything????

    So we're to believe that 3.1 doesn't have in place the carrier restriction that AT&T has put on currently released software in the U.S. only? So if I have a friend download 3.0.1 from a country with MMS and send it to me to install it here, I'd get MMS on AT&T?

    When was the last time anyone actually speculated about anything? I'd rather try and be wrong than sit idly by like an idiot.

    That's idiotic. The firmware is the same, the proper carrier file is what I'm talking about.

    Also: friend? :p



    Nice sly name calling, but I would say it's more idiotic to spout off guesses as fact.

    Its probably whereever your iTunes account is located.

    Which IMO means that when you go to download the iPhone update 3.1 iTunes will ensure to download the US only update that will have the ATT carrier file update.

    At least thats somewhat plausible....

    What good is that anymore?

    Most people have already revealed that they can use PS. :rolleyes:


    EDIT; I'm going to give it a try but if you are wrong, then I'm coming back on here and I'm going to be angry with you.

    *Off to check and see if I even have any friends left that MMS. Most have abondoned me :(

    Insult if I ever saw one. I'd ask you to remove it, but you won't.

    No, no. Nothing at you personally. I'm just thinking of the phrase, "Apathy is death". I hope you write every tech analyst who has ever gotten anything wrong, otherwise this could be seen as harassment.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. Just saying...



    You're not a tech analyst, you just play one on MR. :D
