    I noticed when I sent an SMS to multiple people it sent it as an MMS. I read this is a "bug" in 3.0?

    Can someone let me know how to fix this? If I turn off MMS Messaging, then I can't receive them (which is free in Australia), but I need to be able to receive them for work purposes. I just don't want to send them and pay ridiculous fees.

    Cheers :)

    I know that as of 3.0 and even before, my group sms went out together, and it mashed the sms into one pointless "group chat" in the Messages app.

    I am with Telstra in Australia, and I received a text message from them telling me of this issue, and that they will fix it asap. Since, there has been a carrier update file in iTunes which has fixed the issue.

    Can someone else confirm (other than a newbie member, sorry no offense!) that this is OK to do and still keep my phone unlocked and jailbroken? I dont fully understand what it's doing but I want my multiple SMS fixed

    It will not lock your iPhone up. Just because my title says newbie, it doesn´t mean I am a newbie;) But if you don´t trust me, then feel free to sit and wait for someone else to reply...

    You`re very welcome:) I know that you can change and "renew" your carrier-settings throught that method, but did it fix your sms-problem?

    Well.. You could choose a few friends and send a sms saying; "Free beer at my place! Come happy:D" and see if it sends as sms or mms:)

    What I mean is how do I test to see if the message was flagged as an SMS or MMS? Are there "properties" of some kind to see a sent message flagged a certain way?
