    Really? This much hostility!?wow! Ok. It's your ulcer. Have fun with that.
    From the problems it causes it's a huge pain the ***, and we are paying for it.

    Just think, for unlimited text, you pay almost as much as we all do for data! That's a incredible rip-off, they should be working 24/7 to get it implemented ASAP, not giving us some "end of summer" BS. Apparently whoever is running ATT never learned anything about running a business properly.

    Everytime I think about how unprepared at&t is, it makes me so angry. They need to offer some discounts on bills.
    Yea they should offer a discount.

    The thing is, text messaging should beincluded in the data package, but all the carriers rip us off for texts, however, since ATT is screwing iphone customers they should be giving us texts for free or for like 5 a month for unlimited, I'm paying 20 right now for a few kb of data, it's nuts. At least if we had MMS it wouldn't be so bad.

    Yea $20 for just texting and no MMS? Maybe someone should start a petition.

    Ok ok. Today I had a problem with my voicemail and the phone called AT&T for me. When I got
    a human on the phone, she
    was very helpful. Anyway, since reading this and many other posts about MMs I decided to ask her what the deal is and why hasn't AT&T offered us iphoners MMs? Her reply... We have absolutely no control over apes software. "really!". So I push. "Apple announces at WWDC that AT&T will not be offering MMs until late summer?!". She said "this is starting to make me angry, let me put you on hold and we'll call Apple". So now I'm on the phone with AT&T and Apple. " sir, att&t is up grading their net work and MMs and terhering will be available when the upgrade is complete. You will receive a text with a link to upgrade your carrier file in about (this is why Im posting) Three weeks".

    So it seems to me that this is good news for all you MMs Jonesers. My gues is and has alway been July.

    I hope that's right, you gotta understand why it makes some people so angry is because sometimes people send you important pics, and me having to drive home just to goonto that viewmymessage site is a royal pain, it's not 1994, ATT needs to get their act together. If everyone had iphones we could just email things to eachother, but that's not realistic..

    And now I'm really pissed at ATT, I just got an important MMS from someone that does not have a phone with email and I got that stupid "viewmymessage" link and all it does is give me errors!!!

    ATT needs to get this fixed ASAP, I don't want to hear "by the end of summer", I want it done NOW.
    "...an important MMS from someone that does not have a phone with email"

    How important can an MMS really be? Second... they don't have email either? They do

    Well... I'll be happy to not have to share the bandwidth with as much people when it opens up to another carrier.

    I'm happy. We didn't have it for two years... a month or two (even three for that matter) for something so small is going to make the difference? Lol.

    If it was AT&T's fault, I would agree. You should really be saying "no more apple" and go to a Pre or Berry.

    I have revived many of those stupid links. I understand how frustrating it is to navigate that site. So whenever i recieve one of those "view my message" texts. I delete it and don't bother.
    I hate being stressed so I have learned to just " let it go"
    I bought the phone knowing it did not have MMs. If it were that important to me I would have bought a different device. Sure! I'll use it when it's activated but until then I refuse to get all worked up. It isn't worth the stress and the harmful effects that stress causes. I always remember that MY choices have put me in MY current position. So I chill and wait for my next choice, perhaps I'll choose better, perhaps not.

    I wouldn't be as upset at AT&T if their message website WORKED. The vast majority of the time I go to the site and it says I need to be looking for viewmymessage.com/1 or /2. Then after 4-5 login attempts with what I know is the correct password it might work.

    At least some of my friends have listened and been sending them to my email. I mostly just want to be able to get pictures, I barely send them.

    If they make you activate it through then they're probably going to charge you more, as far as each MMS=4 Txt msgs or something like that, so they're giving you an option...

    I AM A CEO OF AT&T & APPLE, MMS WILL BE AVAILBLE WITHIN THE CENTURY!!! GUARANTEED!!
