    I'm very jealous!
    I have unlimited messaging on a family plan and I can't seem to receive them.
    Hopefully I can get the carrier files tonight to enable both sending and receiving. :)
    Let me know if you can get more or if one just happen to sneak through. :)

    the way apple is handling MMS preview (2nd picture) could potentially cause some embarrassing situations

    can you make the pictures bigger or can you only see them at that small size?

    Clicking the picture in the MMS bubble enlarges the picture.

    Very nice, and just like the SMS has ability to turn the preview on or off i am assuming that MMS will have the same feature.

    Does anyone know if AT&T enabled this feature yet on your account.. AT&T is probably still blocking this.. When there are ready to roll this update out then I'm sure they will unblock it... Being that the software is not out yet they don't want to unblock yet...

    I was toying with the carrier update last night trying to get the MMS enabled on my at&t account at the same time and one of the representatives at business care told me that at&t was working with Apple to "solve" an issue with multimedia messaging.

    They might be preparing to unblock it for select phones.

    This might help explain why some people have received random MMS messages without updating their carrier ipcc file with the settings like mms_proxy.

    Nice... I'm stoked. No more ridiculous passwords to enter to view a pic.

    I hope that having SMS Preview set to off will also extend to MMS. I don't want others to see a preview of what pictures I get.

    It is in the Messages settings, so one would assume that it is for all messages. (it says show preview... not show sms preview).
