    Follow this guide closely, carefully, and exactly what it says.

    REMINDER: You should already have uploaded the Carrier file and entered the settings for MMS.

    1. Put your iPhone SIM in another phone.

    2. Call atleast 2 people with your SIM in another AT&T phone.

    3. Go to wireless.att.com

    4. Sign in to your account

    5. Click on your number/name

    6. It should show you what phone you're using. If it still shows an iPhone and says 'Apple iPhone 3G S' then repeat step number 2

    7. Go to the 'Features' tab and scroll down to the messaging plans.

    8. Chose a messaging plan that's not an iPhone one.

    9. Scroll to the bottom, and click next until it says you're done.

    10. Call AT&T and tell them your MMS isn't working. They may ask you what your number is and what phone your using. Tell them you're phone is XXX and tell them your cell number (the number that your SIM is on)

    11. They might ask you if you've had an iPhone before. Tell them you're switching phones.

    12. Once/If they enable it, you should be good.

    There you go! (written completely by me)

    Holy **** you guys must really want to send pictures out.

    Then when AT&T does a monthly sweep and knocks the feature off, just do it all again right?

    I like my method better. It's fool-proof and should work for everyone:

    1. Wait until AT&T officially supports MMS.

    i can't. but, lots of other people have. and, your "special" way of doing it is much like gizmodo's way, or the other ways.

    i'm pissed that i can't get MMS to work, but I'm waiting until AT&T has it come out.

    He's saying you did not come up with this "all on your own", which you didn't. There are millions of threads like this that date back to the 1st Gen iPhone and SwirlyMMS. Nice try but the only original thing in your post is your username

    ALL of these are only temporary. AT&T sweeps the network, sees the wrong phone on your account, and boots the settings. I followed the same steps (and sorry, they have been typed up 1000's of times here before you) and it worked then suddenly stopped. Log into your AT&T account, and you will see, AUTOMATICALLY, that your current device is changed to the iPhone. MMS, fails.

    WAIT!

    I never said I came up with this 'all on my own'.

    I just said I wrote the guide in this thread.

    It's not my way, I didn't say I 'invented' that way. I'm just saying I wrote the guide above, no matter how much it's like Gizmodo's guide. It's mine, not theirs.

    And like every guide out there it will stop working in a matter of time. The network auto-detects your device and will cut it off.

    No because they asked for my IMEI and I told them one for a Samsung phone. Then, I changed my iPhone IMEI to the one of the Samsung phone. They can't detect it.

    Plagiarism? Really? I can write a note saying how to get to someones house and then someone else gives you directions to that house, too, and your basically telling them they 'Plagiarized the other person'

    I'm not the only one with MMS.

    Actually, If anything, I'm making it easier for AT&T to enable MMS for iPhones. (As stated at http://www.boygeniusreport.com/) For AT&T to enable MMS, they will have to manually take the 'MMS Opt Out' out of everyones account. I'm just one more person they've already done it to. :p

    Your example was crap. When you come up with a guide that "you wrote all by yourself" that is a carbon copy of guides published by websites such as Gizmodo, MMi, MacRumors, Engadget, etc... then yes, that is considered plagiarism. Cite your sources.

    I didn't change the actual IMEI of the phone. AT&T asked for my iPhone's IMEI and I gave them the one for samsung. They changed my iPhone Account's IMEI.
