    I can't seem to find the MMS option in my iPhone, I tried from a text and from an image but no option.

    MMS will be enabled "later this summer" if you are an AT&T customer.

    I got an O2 UK mesage saying "You can't send picture messages yet because picture messaging isn't set up for you. We'll set it up now and let you know when it's ready."

    I'm waiting ^^

    Ok so they've sent me an MMS, so now it's working =)

    I know that but I called AT&T and had them remove that block from my account. And even if they didn't let MMS shouldn't the MMS button still be there?

    Ahh, I see what your saying. I imagine they (AT&T) will push out an update when they are finally "ready" to let us send MMS.

    it's weird because even before 3.0 i couldn't get mms. i read that they would send some user/pass to view the image but i never got any of those

    AT&T is incompetent...therefore, we won't have MMS until "later this summer"

    Read around...

    you need a carrier update file. you can find it on the iphone forums in a thread called 'quick guide for tethering/mms on iphone 3.0' or something like that

    if MMS is detected on your account, the icon shows. if its not detected, it hides it. so no firmware upgrade is needed once AT&T enables it. It will just show up one day

    I am not so sure about that theory - the carrier file (IPPC) has the options, if it was not in the 3.0 software it would not matter if ATT enabled it or not, it is not going to automagically show up because ATT enables it....

    The option isn't there because it wouldn't work. Why would the option be there if it's bunk and non-functional? This isn't Windows Mobile.

    You need to be on the phone with AT&T if anybody. Still won't do you any good at all, but at least point blame in the right direction.
