    All the threads i have read claim the MMS icon in the SMS app is back by default. But i looked and it wasnt there and there was no option to turn it on either. I am currently running the tethering hack and am on ATT 5.0. Please help. Thank you!

    It's back unless your on AT&T in which case it is still unavailable. At least, I think that's the case

    The opposite for me. 3.0 didn't have it but 3.1 does. I'm on AT&T.

    I have a freshly restored 3GS running 3.1 beta with AT&T 4.2

    I didn't have to hack and install an ipcc file. The camera icon for sending MMS is just there.

    If you're on 5.0, you should be able to enter the MMS settings to turn on the camera icon.

    I wish we could get a definitive answer on what's going on here.

    That's correct. If you upgrade and already have 5.0, you will retain that version. If you restore, you will have 4.2.

    Yes, if you restore from 3.0 to 3.1 rather than update, your carrier will change from 4.0 to 4.2.

    If you don't want to restore, hold off until someone inevitably releases the 4.2 ipcc which you should be able to use to change your carrier version.

    Did you try restarting your phone and then going to settings messages and turning on MMS?

    OK, but if i now installed carrier file 4.0 and then try Updating and not restoring, wouldn't that change it to 4.2 because i am increasing the carrier file? Why do i have to restore and not just update from 4.0?
