    Please, Apple - partner with someone besides AT&T in the US. Their pricing sucks!

    Other carriers would probably give you the same pricing.

    well at least ATT are not going to charge for MMS, as soon as I saw delay i figured they were working out pricing, i was hoping this wouldnt go unanswered for too long

    there is still no option in the GM release for MMS - so that answers your question no?

    Whatever the reason AT&T has clearly pissed off Apple.

    Forestall and Schiller took 3 or 4 digs at AT&T during the keynote over the MMS and tethering debacle.

    Actually, I think we will. Notice in the article it says unlimited covers SMS and MMS.

    To those saying that any other carrier would charge the same as AT&T, this may be true but ... If multiple carriers were carrying the iPhone, I guarantee you'd see some price competition.

    Competition is good, it forces down prices. I think Apple has had enough and we will be seeing the iPhone unlocked in the US by the next iPhone.

    I'm sure AT&T will fix this before 3.0 comes out. That would just be PR suicide.

    This reason is pretty ridiculous.

    ...and I totally believe it.

    They could easily write a small program to fix all the accounts, which is how they probably blocked them all in the first place...

    :confused:

    Just wait till they jailbreak 3.0 and hack it so you can tether. No big deal.

    You're obviously not a software guy ...

    I don't have the MMS OPT OUT on my bill (just checked). I wonder if it's because I have the unlimited text package for our entire family plan?

    Either way, here's hoping that this is accurate and I manage to have MMS enabled on Day 1.

    Please give me the option to find out.

    Hey:p

    Good. There is some hope.

    That's all I want, competition. Let the prices crumble.

    I don't know much about their systems, but reason says if they can do it automatically one way, they should be able to do it another.

    My guess is the MMS option becomes available around August 1st. Really, At&T does suck-They have know since March(probably even earlier) and still are not ready

    You do realize that you can always call in and have the CSR remove it for you so you have working MMS from day 1, right?

    Also if you go into an AT&T store to buy your iPhone you can have them remove it at that time.
