    Over the last 4 days I have tried to send an MMS and 85% get the red ! and "send message failure". Never had this issue before. Anybody else having teh same issue?

    Mine have been sending, although they lag.

    Are you sure you are in coverage when you try to send it?

    Have you tried restarting your iPhone, holding the top button and the home button at the same time until an Apple appears?

    If all else fails you can try a restore, although I would call AT&T to inquire about issues in your area first.

    I was having the same problem the last 3 days, but today I turned off my phone and after 5 minutes I turned it back on and it worked.

    Wasted 20 minutes calling At&T yesterday. Was told "no issues with our network it is probably your phone" and was instructed to go to local Apple store to see what the issue with my phone is.

    AT&T is funny, it is always the phone, NEVER their network

    Thats their way of saying forget it cause they're too lazy to figure it.
    Ask to be transfered to tech support.
    Im on the phone with them right now. Thats the 4th call so far for this same issue.

    Finally tech support fixed it.
    Tell them to reset your mms settings to reflect the type of iphone you have.
    I put my simcard on a friends iphone 2G a few days ago and since then I guess things got screwed up on AT&T's side.
