FYI, the original purpose of this post was to see if ANYONE had MMS from AT&T due to AT&T activating it...LOL! It's pretty obvious that the only ones that do have MMS in the U.S. are the ones that did the hack (and who somehow got a tech to remove the mms opt out).

I already tried to get the mms opt out removed, but the reps just repeat the "late summer" BS. You got lucky. However, even so, I did see a bunch of people that tried the hack lose visual voice mail, so the hack didn't work perfectly for some.

My apologies, I Wasn't aware that was what you were looking for. As for the vv the custom carrier file I have allows me to put in the proper apn for visual voicemail. Mine didn't stop with the default apn, but it slowed considerably. I changed the apn from wap.cingular to acds.voicemail and they come through just fine and quick.
No need to apologize, I didn't specify in my original post. I actually didn't believe it would happen today or earlier, but thought maybe AT&T might be moved to do something soon after all the backlash over not having MMS. So, I was hoping when it does come out, that someone will respond here. AT&T said we would get a SMS message when it is available.
Soooo, you have to NOT have mms opt out to do your method/hack correct? Just want to make sure, since someone else said that you had to get AT&T to remove the opt out.

Yes, that is what I am reading, and I am assuming I never had it, cause I never had it taken off and mms works for me. All I did to my account was have it changed to a regular 200 messages messaging plan, and mms began working. Within a week, I switched it to the family texting plan never had a problem.
Okay, I typed all that, and it's probably because you have the messaging plan. I don't have any messaging plans.

I have the family messaging plan. I just did the carrier file and have the icons, popped my SIM into a stupid moto flip phone, OLAM recognized it, waited a few, then popped the SIM back into my iPhone and rebooted.
Still not sending, bar gets almost all the way there, then stops and says error. Does it sometimes take a few to kick in? Hmmm...

Okay, you do understand you have to do the hack, right? All AT&T did is remove the opt out, you have to turn it on.
This all begs the question, why are some able to get AT&T do remove the opt out.....sweet talking....large sums of money....sex? anyway, like I've said, it seems even people who do get the hack to work have mms turn off after awhile when AT&T sees that the opt out is removed.
