    There is no MMS for the iPhone unless you jailbreak. Take a look over in the Hacks forum in the iPhone Forums section.

    Are you with AT&T?

    If so its very difficult to get it to work. The app is called SwirlyMMS. There are numerous threads here on MacRumors and all over the internet.

    Swirly is a pain. Moving sim cards from phone to phone, this and that, works, stops working for no reason....no thanks!

    That's only for people on O2 in the UK. This guy's in PA.

    The App I like to use is Flutter. You can send a picture over the internet and it doesn't count as a SMS/MMS. The receiver will get a text with a link. If they have a browser, they can then view the picture. There are also other ways of send MMS via your email. You have to know the recipient's carrier to do this. Google "send MMS from iPhone" and you'll see the email address you send the picture to. As for receiving MMS, err...ah...good luck (unless another person sends you a picture via Flutter).

    Yes, what do you mean? Yes, MMS questions do come up every day, but there's usually the same amount of pro-MMS people as people bitching, so it just becomes a wash. It all come's down to an opinion/personal preference. There are really no solid, objective arguments against MMS, just personal opinions.

    Works fine for me. Rarely have an issue with it and why would you keep switching sim cards from phone to phone?

    Well I am definately pro MMS and have absolutely no problem with anybody asking as many questions as they want but ive been lurking around here long enough to know that there are alot of ***holes here just waitin to jump down someones throat with a smart remark about searching before you ask. I just dont understand why some poeple are so negative and I really feel for poeple who come here looking for help and end up getting smashed.

    because the same questions get asked over and over? and it shows that the person is too lazy to search for the answer themselves and expect everyone else to feed them answers?

    "its wanting me to reply with a Y and standard message will apply i'll just reply with a Y i guess"



    Text I got from a VZW person I sent to. Hmmmm
