    I just decided to try and send myself an MMS, and I no longer received the red exclamation mark, instead it went through and I received it as a regular MMS message.

    Anyone else in California able to send an MMS without swapping sims or changing rate plans?

    AT&T has been activating MMS all around the US. Your area is now live, while other areas are still dead.

    Anyone around the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area have it working? I've been trying for a few days after getting the 5.1 carrier update and I'm still getting the red exclamation.

    Which carrier file are you using? did you change your carrier file? and i know you didn't change your rate plan, but are you on a family plan?

    i'm in SF and it's not working for me.

    yeah but then all we will have are threads complaining that mms msgs are gettting to destinations too slow or failing to send

    someone ought to just start a twitter page for this so we don't have to clutter the forums with 50 threads about mms

    So, are these 'updates' just happening ala 'immaculate conception' or are people who've updated to a carrier file that is not released to the public only able to have MMS.

    If i've done nothing since the 3.1 update (other then sync it on occasion), and i live in one of the cities that provides MMS at the moment is it possible to have it? Or would i need a hack to make it work?

    I am not really sure. I downloaded the carrier file from one of those tutorials yesterday before i left the house. I loaded it up then but I didn't check the version after i loaded it. I had loaded it before, several days earlier, and back then it would say 5.1. So I am not sure if a new carrier file had been pushed to my phone in the form of 5.2 (which I doubt) or if the link had been updated with a newer carrier file and version number (much more likely)

    From what I have read it is a bit of both. Probably more of the immaculate conception route though. A lot of people have been using updated carrier files but that never really did much for granting MMS. I think it more has to do with AT&T changing the account info to allow people to use MMS, it is just that the people actively persuing MMS are more likely to notice it is working now. There are many people out there nowadays who have old carrier files of 4.0 and 5.0 and people with OS 3.0 and 3.0.1 that now have MMS working.

    Probably a dumb question but how do I get to the MMS settings to type all that info in? Or do I need a different carrier file?
