I don't think its pointless all..
And i signed it as soon as i read it!! I think rather it get anything done or not is irrelevant. What it does accomplish is to let AT&T at least know we are aware and not just content to sit quietly by, that we are paying attention to what they basically forcing us to deal with as long as we choose to use their companies service (which i still feel it great).
We have a voice, why not use it!
Bravo my good man!!

Again not questioning your integrity in the slightest..
You can provide all the proof in the world that it works for YOU.. And for that i say good deal!
It however does NOT function for me, which was all i was saying in the first place. Debating this is pointless, as i can say it wont work for me, and how can you possibly argue that fact anymore than i can argue with the fact it works for you..
Again i am glad it works for some, i truly wish i could count myself amoung the lucky ones.

ok, wait i think we are all getting confused here.
this is what I am talking about doing...
sending a pic from an e-mail on MY iPhone to my brothers phone, which is NOT an iPhone (he can receive pic messages).
Is this the same thing you are trying to do or were you under the impression that sending something to firstname.lastname@example.org would allow the pic to go through to your iPhone?
i have the impression now that's what you are trying to do.
I send pic messages from my iPhone by email to email@example.com
it doesn't work the other way around.
if you want to receive a pic on your iPHone, they have to send the MMS to your e-mail account linked t your iPhone.

Ohhh I see what you're saying. Yeah, I don't receive viewmymessage things either. I thought you meant you couldn't send anything to other people.
Ok sorry for the confusion. yeah I can send MMS to other ppl through e-mail but I don't receive anything unless they send it to my e-mail.
I know that i just have friends that say "did u get the pic I sent you" and i say "nope" lol

Sooo...I'm assuming that if you have a family texting plan that your line is technically provisioned to receive MMS? And since you have an iPhone, you just don't get anything at all since you don't have the provision for the viewmymessage thing?
Well tell me if this sounds right, but doesn't that mean that when 3.0 comes out and it supports MMS, won't your MMS start working right away if you have family text? They'll just start coming through, wouldn't they?
AT&T made it sound like it's the provision for viewmymessage that was delaying them because they have to hand remove that from every account. Well, if you already have a family text plan with MMS provisioned, wouldn't it just start working then?
It's something to think about I suppose.

hmm, well then I'll just cross my fingers that when 3.0 drops, my MMS will just "work" since we have family texting. 3 out of the 5 phones on my plan are not iPhones. The other 2 are me and the gf's iPhone 3Gs. I'll just hope MMS will go through since our account shouldn't have that provision. I know my dad, brother and mom get MMS fine. I had to call a few mos ago because they weren't. Never realized that may of been because of the iPhone provision. Either way - it works now after a rep made a few changes.
I'll cross my fingers

You see how much confusion there is now without AT&T having thrown the switch and allowing iPhones to send/receive MMS? Imagine what would happen if some people could and some couldn't.
We may not be happy about it, but I actually believe AT&T is doing the right thing (this time!).
