    What will be the network or iphone's response when someone sends YOU a MMS?
    Error message
    kicked back to sender
    text only with "unsupported attachment" message?

    it will be sent to your mobile email address (10digit#)@mobile.att.net

    actually i dont know but dont worry you should be able to receive it. i feel strong that you can see it in your mobile #'s email

    In Yurrup you get an SMS with a URL to the carrier's website to view it.

    that's a very interesting question. i was kinda hoping that the SMS part will just somehow accept those attachments and insert them into the conversation...On my WM6 Blackjack, theres not a separate section for MMS, it just comes in on the SMS folder. Or maybe this idea has already been debunked? I dunno...

    Maybe it can receive them, but just not send??

    Everytime I have sent MMS messages to a phone that DOESNT support MMS, they simply do notreceive the message. I assume the iphone is the same.

    that would imply mms supported but half crippled, what is the point of that?

    I've seen this same behavior on Cingular phones before. You'd get an SMS that references a page on viewmymessage.com or some site like that.

    The freakin free phones you can get with any phone plan from any company can do MMS, why does this $600 greatestelectronicsdeviceofalltime not do it????

    Thats a damn good point, the Sidekick 3 couldnt do mms either. The dumbass www.viewyourpic.com site was slow and pain to use. I dont understand the reasoning why they would not include it... Dont get me wrong the iPhone looks awesome but for $600 bucks i kinda expect it.
