    I hate to split hairs with AT&T but they failed on the promise of a "late summer" delivery. Autumn begins September 23rd.

    On the other hand, it's better than them putting it off longer.

    Stoked about MMS? Hell yeah. But like Poe, not so much about having to re-JB my phone. Here's to hoping aptbackup works, and works well. And moreso, that we have a JB available soon after the update!

    Apple should not have featured MMS nor promised it in there last confrence. Should have waited until they had a launch date. Same thing with the TomTom car kit. They talked about keeping safe driving with the kit, yet the app is released without the kit and a vague late summer release. They should have released the kit and the app together. These things tend to sour people.

    So you think Apple should have made the rest of the world wait for MMS on the iPhone because AT&T in America wasn't ready?

    I just hope that the wait for MMS pays off. I'd rather be upset about having to wait, than upset about it not working right. But if it ends up not working right when released anyway... I'll be very upset. I don't think there's going to be issues though.

    Yes since we had to wait hopefully its perfect.

    So now my other question is will this type of MMS have no limit on data?

    Since MMS has always sucked anyway due to compressing pics, would the iPhone do
    the same?

    You can get one of the carrier updates that are out there now and you should have mms the day it is released, without having to update to 3.1 prior to a jailbreak being released.

    The iPhone already compresses pics for email, mms will be the same. AT&T is going to have caps on the size, like they do with all other phones and mms, for most of the smart phones the cap is between 300 and 600 kb. Where you will run into issues is sending images to "dumb" phones and phones on other networks with smaller caps.

    So ATT ****ed up big time. And to think they lost the trust of ALL of their customers (they FLAT OUT LIED as to the release date) because they can't release it 3 days sooner (when its still technically summer, which is still stretching it a bit)? Really?

    Let's see how many people stay around once they are given the choice to leave.

    MMS picture quality is actually a bit higher than using the email share compression, 1024x768 vs 800x600.

    The big downside is video. When emailing videos they can be as big as 15MB, so you send a decent looking 1 min clip to someone via email right from the phone, but the ~500KB limit kills videos on MMS.

    You have to have a second AT&T phone to get MMS via the carrier update, correct - has to do w/putting the iPhone SIM in an older phone w/MMS, doing something on the website, yada yada? I think I've read about this, but the problem is that my iPhone is my only AT&T phone (and actually, my only phone period!)

    Since so many people use email these days. I'm wondering if this MMS release will have longevity...

    I'll probably use it once or twice, for the sake of it. But, will most likely revert to email It can always be saved, and stored forever - LOL

    I think there is a significant amount of people who will revert to email, but I don't think most will. There are lots of people (primarily young adults and teens) who don't use email often and would much prefer to send an MMS. There is also still a lot of people without smartphones, and if you want a picture sent instantly to that person, MMS is really the only option.

    I wasn't referring to doing a sim swap, simply stating that you will not need to upgrade to 3.1 (prior to a jailbreak being released) unless you want to. On Sept 25 (or earlier) you can put one of the carrier files people are using now to activate mms, on your phone and it will work. I am personally using one of the carrier files that was extracted from 3.1 beta 2.

    I thought it was just a profile update. Thats all Fido did here, only had to wait two days after the release and I got the Carrier Profile update message, not a whole new software update.
