    You heard? From where? How much? If its speculation you should try it yourself.

    activatemms2g

    installed activatemms2g via cydia on 2g, 3.01 JB/unlocked and it worked great EXCEPT it would use up battery in about an hour whether or not I was sending MMS,,, thankfully after uninstalling via cydia battery usage returned to normal.

    I installed ActivateMMS2g on my 3.0 JB original iPhone. I am on AT&T and MMS doesn't work. We are discussing this in another thread, but it seems this app no longer functions for AT&T folks.

    I installed it on my 2G with 3.0 and with 3.0.1, it worked fine on both versions. No resource problems at all, battery life didn't change. I installed a mobile config file from BenM to get the network settings entered correctly.

    Will this work without a data plan?

    I read somewhere that people are using their data plan to send MMS instead, so I just wanted to confirm.

    I wonder is there any way to call AT&T and get info to make this work? I pay them a boatload of money each month, my phone is capable of sending and receiving MMS, and their network is basically saying no to letting it happen.

    No - apologies, didn't mean to mislead people there, I am on O2 in the UK. It seems from other posts here that AT&T is blocking MMS's from 2G iPhones. It worked fine on O2 though, so it is not the phone or the software.

    i jailbroke my 2G on 3.0 and got "activatemms2g" thru cydia. the software was all set up for mms (the camera icon, the mms settings - everything) but i could never send/receive...just got the red "!''. i'm sure it's an at&t network thing, perhaps after september 25th. rumor is the network knows when a 2G tries to send an mms because of the IMEI# on the SIM and wont allow it. we need some kind of hack where the network thinks the phone is a 3G/3GS...:rolleyes:
