    You should call again and ask a different person. See what they tell you.

    If this were indeed true then Apple wouldn't have said during the keynote that MMS would be available to AT&T customers later this summer. They would have said it would be available at launch. Don't trust anything a CSR says, most of them know nothing.

    Yeah that sounds like the typical idiot rep just quoting the first date they see.

    Right, probably just pulled a date out of his ass.

    -unless- AT&T is working rapidly to save face after being knocked down at the keynote.

    It'd be nice, but I'm not holding my breath. From the things I've read, the holdup in activating MMS is that AT&T has to manually edit each iPhone line to enable MMS on it. I don't really understand why that's so difficult, especially since all the account info is probably stored in a SQL database somewhere. A simple update query should do the trick if that's the case. Maybe they're using Excel spreadsheets to keep track of customers instead... :rolleyes:

    I can't wait to sit around and send around tiny, short, low res videos all day.

    I get a different answer every time I call AT&T regardless of the question. They are hopelessly under trained or told to lie at will. I am not sure which?:mad: I love it when they say that it's impossible to send MMS from the iPhone when my buddy is doing it right in front of me.LOL I had my MMS working a bit in build 5 but it's hosed now.:mad:

    Better be...after all this wait for MMS. Now have it on the device, but the network can't handle it.

    I don't believe it. It'll be "late summer".

    I called a CSR and had a pretty simple question that was turned into a debacle because she obviously didn't know anything she was talking about.

    1) I tried to get ATT to remove the MMS block when I had the beta installed. I had the CSR, her supervisor, and some tech on the line and they said the block is at a very high level and they could not remove it.

    2) If they have to remove it from everyone, I can't imagine a batch script taking that long to do the job. They just need to test it and implement it.

    3) They do have to update their carrier settings file though and send it through iTunes so MMS is enabled on our 3.0 software again (current GM has no MMS option).

    I'm hoping AAPL's keynote was a swift kick where ATT needed it. If ATT is listening, we'd also like:

    A) the microcell sold to us at a fixed retail cost (like $29, the same cost as snow leopard).
    B) tethering - um, some of us are already using it. your marketing folks just need to figure out pricing, and your IT folks need to figure out how many people will sign up and adjust bandwidth.
    C) how about introducing the high speed line towers in a couple cities, just to demo future technology? heard of good PR? well, maybe not...

    So when MMS is available "late summer" is there going to have to be an update to put the MMS option back into setting?

    Not an OS update. A carrier settings update like we saw earlier in the year (but through iTunes). Do some searches and you'll find out lots about carrier settings files. Some poeple are making their own.

    If I was an optimistic person I would say that AT&T told apple to say late summer just in case they couldn't meet the release deadline.

    text forwarding, deleting, etc?

    Here is another question bout something unrelated to the topic. Since we aren't gettting MMS the day 3.0 is released. Will we still be able to forward, delete, etc specific texts when 3.0 is released?

    Yes, I can do that now in 3.0 GM, and have been able to since the initial beta.

    Yes.

    You can also copy them and paste them anywhere you like.

    It's really quite fun since it's new right now.

    That sounds good! I hope its true though. You never know, they dont know when seasons even start (apple saying 3.0 will be out in the summer which starts June 21st) so it could be whenever!:rolleyes:

    Do texts in 3.0 say each individual time on them? That's something that bothers me when I go to look at the time of a text and all I get is a range.

    update account set mms_on = 'T' where mms_on = 'f'

    Easy enough. :D
