    Download the IPCC files from here and install it via iTunes and your MMS should work. This is what I have to do to make my MMS function properly.

    Use the post paid tzones one. Just make sure to change the APN settings so the internet won't work, and you should be good. You can install the IPCC file in iTunes by holding option and clicking "check for update" and choosing that file. Then reboot your phone.

    Instructions for both Mac and PC. You might not even need to do the terminal or command prompt thing. It's really easy.

    This is what you need to download. link. Use the windows instructions

    I don't think it matters. I would delete it just to be safe, and then install the IPCC.

    while we're on the topic of mms on tmobile...does this same method apply to the iphone 2G? ive got my friends unlocked to tmobile and she only has unlimited texting, but no data. i never figured out how to get mms to work on it.

    The 2G iPhone "isn't" compatible with MMS. You have to use SwirlyMMS (which works great), or download Activate2GMMS (or something like that) from cydia which should make mms work, but it can affect the battery life.

    +1 while researching on how to do it on myphone(3g) today, i found a lot info on 2g. and what he said are ur choices. personally, i'd say, if u want it REALLY bad, go with swirly. i heard it worsk great and u wont risk affecting the battery life.

    I haven't had a problem with ActivateMMS2G and battery life and I love the way it works! It only works on 2G's with 3.0 or 3.0.1 ONLY. NOT 3.1 or higher! There's a few threads that detail instructions on here.
