    Ok, I have the iphone 3g and i understand it does not support mms messaging. Everyone else i know that has the phone receives a txt message saying they were sent an mms message and are given a link to an att site with a temp password where they are able to view the message. I however never get the txt saying i received an mms message for some reason. Anyone know how i can start receiving that txt, i have the unlimited txt plan. Thanks in advance.

    i've had the exact same issue...although when an AT&T user sent me an MMS message, that website message popped up. Maybe it only accepts them from users on the same network.

    yeah, now I'm not getting them at all. I even tried removing the SIM and restarting etc. but nothing worked. I'm on hold with apple now...

    well, the reply I got from the apple customer service line was that becuase the iPhone doesn't access third party websites, these notifications won't come through. She said they will have probably 10-20% success rate because some will sneak through but for the most part...we won't be notified in any way if someone tries to send a picture message.

    so far the best way i have come across is to have people send the pictures texts to your email that is set up on the phone.
