    they said that I didn't have an MMS opt-out code on my account...however when I try to send a picture MMS (I have the edited carrier file) using my phones orignal sim card, still got an error message....

    BUT, when I awitched to a friends at&t sim card from his RAZR (we share an account) it sent an MMS just fine...not cool, I don't want to be impatient or anyhting., but I am- I WANT MMS, lol

    Less than a month before everyone will have it.

    Advice: Wait.

    I called them the other day and the lady said that on the 21st they would send a message with a link to download the update to allow mms. But I mnever got one.

    I still can't believe that so many people use MMS... I have never run into a situation where I've used it, I find it much easier to just email pictures over to my friends... Maybe it's because most of my friends have blackberries (and a few have iPhones) but even before these new phones, I never once sent a picture via MMS....

    Next time they give you a date make sure you tell the the phone call is being recorded for quailty assurance, that way if they lie to you you can call back and complain about giving out false info.

    yeah, way to do something that is illegal in most states unless both parties agree beforehand. then if you tell them you are recording beforehand they wont say sh**

    Where in this statement did he say anything about him personally recording?

    ATT records all the calls for "Quality Assurance". This is what he is referring to.

    yeah but they arent going to give you a tape of their calls so that you can call them out on something, so the recording would have to be in your posession

    As a shock as this is, there are still people out there with dumb phones! Not everyone has e-mail on their phone, so you want to MMS it.

    Does everyone you know sit in front of a computer or have a smart phone? If yes, then maybe you have a point, but if no (more likely) than MMS is a must if you want to send or receive pictures.

    My wife and many of my friends have had MMS capable phones for years, but not smart phones.

    My wife just got an iPhone on friday and still wants MMS so that she can picture message with me in an easier format.

    It's a helluva lot easier to send a picture or video in an MMS thread on the iPhone than to exit the messaging application, go into the camera roll, email a picture, then go back to the messaging application.

    A lot of folks with similar logic to yours added that MMS was unnecessary and that Apple would never do it because email trumps MMS.

    Guess you guys were wrong.

    Just ask them at the start of the call if its true that it might be taped for quality assurance purposes.

    Then when they say yes, well... you're taping it yourself for quality assurance purposes.

    yeah, but what I'm saying is that if you tell them you are going to tape it as well, they will be less inclined to throw out dates and ludicrous claims.
