    I understand that OS 3.0 will allow for MMS but AT&T won't implement MMS until late this summer. Now, this might quite possibly get the stupid question of the day but.....

    Will I be able to *receive*, but not send, an MMS message from a non-iPhone once 3.0 is released?

    I highly doubt it.

    No.

    The only way around this delayed MMS on AT&T is to get it setup on your plan without them knowing you have an iPhone. Which as far as I'm concerened is a right waste of time.

    Just wait? You waited what, 2 years or more since the iPhone came out. Wait a bit longer? lol

    Or you can try Pictfree - http://www.pinger.com/content/home.html

    I've never used it myself, but it looks like it might be a good way to go for MMS'ing.

    That might be a viable alternative for sending MMS but you still can't receive it.

    In all honesty you would be better off waiting until AT&T officially roll out MMS compat in the summer.
    Failing that, if you really need MMS just get a cheap phone that supports it and have people send you pictures to that number or something. lol
