iPhone 3.0 MMS Questions
We know the MMS doesn't work yet on 3.0 with at&t, but had a couple questions.
1) Do any 3.0 users outside the US have any luck with MMS?
2) I stuck my sim in an old phone and tried to send an MMS and it said that MMS wasn't enabled. So for the people that swap their iPhone sim in and out of other phones, do you get MMS when using the other phone or have the same issue?

Here in the US and AT&T MMS goes hand and hand with Media Net which is not on the iPhone. I tried with a Bold sim that had MMS and it did not work as well. I've heard of others being able to receive but not be able to send (outside of the US) Looks like we will have to be patient.

Hi, I work for O2 in the UK, after installing 3.0 (im a dev ) I got MMS activated quite easily, i didnt even have to mention being an employee! It works perfectly as far as the server side of things goes. However there are still bugs in adding photos sometimes. Also i've noticed that if i have mms turned on and i send an sms longer than 1 message it converts it to an mms. hhhmmmm not so good considering i have unlimited sms but pay for mms!

Hi Wolves, are you on O2? If so I'll help you get your MMS put on.
To anyone on o2, use this link
Say you have called CX services and they refused to add mms to your iphone account until the end of your contract. Then state the T&C's say nothing about losing MMS capability and that you look forward to the re-activation of that service.
Emailed them last night at about 11pm, mine was on by the time i woke up this morning at 8am!
Let me know how you get on people

Wolves, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll give you details of some people who can add you to their Developer's lists. All we are asking is you help them beta test their new apps when they come out, after all...thats why they have a dev list

Posted this on my blog last night, the response from att. They said then couldn't then i asked...
Justin: Is there any official word why att won't do this?
Agent: Yes, Apple does not want MMS enabled for the iPhone at this time. We are abiding by the legal contract that exists between the two companies.
I'm not buying that, but I guess there is a small chance it's true.

I've confirmed with a couple people that Rogers in Canada has no MMS. If it did work, it would be $0.50 off-plan per message, but the entire feature-set is missing from Canadian iPhones. No camera button on Messages App, no item in slide-up menus.
I think I'm done trying to get this to work and will just check with ATT every couple weeks to see whats up.

I believe MMS can work.
It's not the medianet package as that is exactly what the iPhone data package is. They only renamed it. Even PDA connect is medianet, called something else.
What you will need is...
MMS package on account
Wap push enabled
This is all after you mess with some of the iPhone 3.0 files.
I wish I was able to test this out... :-/

I set mine up using the o2 IPCC and the camera option appeared in the messages app, I also contacted o2 who sent me a nice email saying MMS was now activated, though i still can't send and receive. I got my wife to send me a couple of pics and nothing not even the text to tell me I had one. Strange. I have seen it mentioned you need to put your phone number in the message app when it opens for the first time, but i've never been prompted. Has anyone got any ideas to solve this?
EDIT now seems to be working fine sending and receiving.

Called AT&T today...
I called AT&T today and after being redirected several times spoke with someone who said that they haven't heard anything about activating mms from apple and until then they can not activate it on the account. I have 3.0 and all of the features are enabled on the phone but every time I try to send it just bounces back a send error. I'm sure it's as simple as AT&T activating the service on the account bur they refuse to do it until they hear from apple. At least that is what they claim....
