How to get MMS on 3g with OS 3.0!! Easy.
Well, Im sure that Im not alone when I say this, but the only real incentive I had to update to 3.1, was MMS. And when I heard it wasnt on the update, I decided to wait to update so I dont lose my Jailbreak and all the sweet kickass things along with it for no reason. But, last night, i was reading online somewhere about The SinfulIphones way of getting mms, and it works! I have sent and received pictures and have not had a problem with it. And it was by far the easiest way to get it. All you have to do is go to Cydia, add the source repo.sinfuliphone.com/ . and once done, look for the app MMS and tethering settings. Install and then reset your network settings. It explains how on the description of the app.
Hope it works for everyone else like it has for me.

I try this when I was on 3.0.1 and it didn't work. My iPhone was jailbroken with redsn0w and yes I added the source to Cydia and added the correct apn settings rebooted iPhone 3G and there was the camera icon in Messages and all but my pictures failed to send. I updated my carrier too, 5.1 now

Here's why it suddenly works.
As 9/25 comes nearer, AT&T has been removing the opt-out codes from all iPhone accounts.
Simply put, AT&T has been flipping the "on" switch on our MMS service by location.
If you tried the sinful method (like I did) a month ago, it didn't work. I tried it again last week, and suddenly it does. It's that simple.
Trust me, it works. But you also have to live in an area that AT&T has turned "on".

It's so interesting - My MMS is now working, thanks for the heads up! However, my coworker (who sits next to me) cannot get his to send or receive. It has the camera icon and he can select pictures, it just never sends. He still receives MMS as a link too.

I and my two roommates all have 3GS's. My roomies girlfriend has a 3G. We are all in Oklahoma City. We all have had our MMS working for about a week now....we didnt used the sinful thing.....we just downloaded the 5.0 carrier file floating around and input the MMS settings....and thats all it took.
