cannot view viewmymessage.com website
ok this is the deal i know that the iphone 3g does not have MMS which was not too bright on apples side because almost none of my friends do there email on there phone and they all have MMs to send pictures. so the only other choice that we have is to get a message that says we have a picture waiting for you on viewmymessage.com. ok fine this is the only other choice that i have to view pictures on my iphone sent to me by someone who sent it through there MMS (thanks apple) whats even worse is that you have to put in this redicules user id and password also putting salt on the wound is that there is no copy and past to at least make this step a little easier (once again thanks apple) now this is a kick in the teeth someone sent me a pic through there MMS and of course i get the email saying i have a pic waiting on viewmymessage.com ok so i click on the link and i wait for the page to come up, and i wait, and i wait then i get this message that says "safari could not open this page because the server stopped responding" ok so i tried to load the page again and i get the same message again and again and again. What the hell is this, is there site down????? so i tried getting on my computer and low and behold the site came right up. Now im a little confused so i try again on my phone and i get the same message again. no way am i going to deal with this there must be a problem with the phone and i just brought it yesterday. So i take it back to apple and i tell them the problem. they then take my phone and try to fix it they reset it they looked at some options changed some things but nothing seemed to get the site up. So the tech calls over another tech and askes to see his phone he then tries to get on the website on his phone and guess what he cant get on either. now were all confused so he tells me let me try one more thing he turns off my 3g and hooks up to apples WIFI then he tries again to get on the site and guess what........ he gets on with no problem. he then turns off the WIFI and puts on the 3G and he cant get on to the site anymore. so i ask him "are you telling that first you dont offer MMS on the iphone and the only other option i have is to view pics sent to me from other phones using MMS through this website which i can only access throgh WIFI???????" he says yes thats it.. What kind of crap is that???? doesnt that defeat the perpose of having internet access. We get screwed with no MMS and now we get screwed by only being able to view the site that has our pics through WIFI. That is completely horrible And really bad business. the only good thing that came out of all this is that i have 30 days to return the phone if im not satisfied. (once agian thanks Apple.

Can't view that site on the iPhone. You have to go to your computer and check it out. No flash support on the iPhone. Lame I know but we have to deal with it. From now on have people send MMS messages to your email. That will work.

I hadn't noticed this "issue" since I dont get a lot of MMS and typically check them at home where I have WiFi. I got an MMS today at work though that I REALLY wanted to see right away and found that via Edge or 3G I was getting the "Safari could not open the page because the server stopped responding" message. Thanks to this forum for providing more background info by the way. Anyways, since it appeared that they were purposely blocking access to specific users I figured I'd try a proxy so that they wouldn't be able to tell I was an iPhone user. Guess what? It worked! I used sneakme.net in 3G mode but I imagine it would work fine on Edge as well. It may only be a matter of time until they lock out anyonomous access from proxies but for now ENJOY!!!!
