I hope this turns out to be true.
Internal AT&T Memo Indicates Groundbreaking iPhone 3G Feature: MMS : Boy Genius Report
"Check this out. New reports are coming in that a very interesting memo is currently circulating internally at AT&T. Said memo reportedly lists a variety of features that will supposedly be included on the upcoming iPhone 3G. Among them is an exciting new service that - get this - allows you to send SMS-like messages that include multimedia attachments. Imagine! The service, cleverly named Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) supposedly allows users to attach one or more image, audio file or even video and deliver the message along with text. The recipient of the message will then see and / or hear the multimedia on his or her mobile. Nutty. None of this is confirmed as of yet, but how sweet would it be if a mobile phone had functionality like this?! Oh Apple, you’ve done it again! Next thing you know we’ll find out that Apple has figured out a way to copy text from one place and paste it to another. Ok, that’s just crazy talk.?

i doubt they will bill MMS and SMS the same...
was listening to a Mac Break Weekly podcast where they did the math. i tried to reproduce such math and found that SMS is billed to equivilent of $320 / MB since its $0.05 / 160 bytes.
hows that for a data cost?

At first I was horrified by the idea of the iPhone not having MMS... however, the idea has grown on me more and more. I have a few friends who will take a pic of anything under the sun and send it to me at a whim. MMS is another expense and since I will be paying $30 for media already, I like that I can just use Safari to hop online and view it there rather than pay another monthly charge.
Don't get me wrong, I was bowled over when I learned the iPhone didn't have MMS... but now after the shock has worn off my wallet is starting to be more okay with it.

That would be a great feature to have on the new iPhone! I hope it's true. There has been so many times when I wanted to show someone a picture a took but couldn't because theres no MMS. I'm really surprised Apple hasn't put those features on the iPhone. Add some video to the iPhone and I'm sold for life!
All it takes is a little help from your friends by getting their service provider. Then simply add a second email address in their contact info using the below:
Alltel = firstname.lastname@example.org
AT&T = email@example.com
Boost Mobile = firstname.lastname@example.org
Cingular (AT&T) = email@example.com
Einstein PCS = firstname.lastname@example.org
Sprint = email@example.com
T-Mobile = firstname.lastname@example.org
US Cellular = email@example.com
Verizon Wireless = firstname.lastname@example.org
Virgin Mobile = email@example.com
If they want to send you a pic just simply make sure they send them to your email you have set up on your phone. Simple.
