    I just checked my bill and it has the following:

    FAMILY MSG UNLIMITED
    Includes:
    Multimedia Messaging
    Text Messaging
    So theoretically I should have MMS...

    Altering a carrier file MIGHT qualify as illegal more easily than jailbreaking.

    If it were that easy, ATT would have had Apple just send a carrier update alont with 3.0.
    Share whatever it is that your smoking.

    I've got my MMS working since the 3.0 GM release. Works great, I've tested sending photos, vCards & audio recordings. You can MMS any carrier but if you try to send to an iPhone that don't support it then they either get a link or doesn't come in. Update the carrier file then change your text plan on your account.

    Did you restart the phone? If you did then you might want to try entering the MMS data under "Settings --> General --> Network --> Cellular Data Network"

    Username: wap@cingulargprs.com
    Password: CINGULAR1
    MMSC: mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.32

    Also, check to make sure your Carrier is AT&T 5.0

    How do you know you don't have the opt out? What txt plan are you on? Check your AT&T online acct and if it shows iPhone Text Message plan then you can send MMS unless you switch to a regular texting plan.

    I do not have MMS yet either. I have heard that it will be available in mid July adn that they will not charge extra for the service which is nice but you never know with AT&T.

    Shutter is absolutely correct. I followed his instructions letter for letter in another thread and got my MMS working as well around 1 1/2 months ago. On my Account on the AT&T website, it still shows that I have the iPhone 3G, BUT I have a regular unlimited messaging plan and my account is provisioned for MMS. I was helped by an extremely friendly regular AT&T rep who followed up with calls later to ensure that everything was working smoothly for me.

    Here are some screenshots of MMS. I didn't have to call them at all, once I switched from the iPhone txt plan to a regular txting plan it started working. I sent the message to myself, but it does work when you send to any carrier.

    I just got off the phone with AT&T. She said that my line did not have MMS disabled (i.e. Opt out on) and said that she was unsure why it would not work.

    Now either she doesn't know squat or she is telling the truth and the opt out is off on my acct but that is not the problem for all of us. I am going to go with the latter of those two.
    It could be true. For me, there was no MMS opt out (and had family msging for the longest). It could be something else... wish I could let you know, but I do love my job. It's coming though, don't worry.

    Like I've said earlier, you don't need to take the word of someone you call at AT&T. You can easily see for yourself by logging on to your account. See my earlier response in this thread.

    Yes, but even without the MMS Opt out there is something else that it could be. I found out as it was the case with my account, but working for them, I easily got that taken care of.

    Someone on another forum said they were told by an at&t rep that they were turning on MMS on Friday. I really will believe it when I see it, but that would coincide with the 3G S launch and the viewmymessages links apparently do not work in 3.0.
    I said this.. i called and asked AT&T to enable MMS for my iPhone.. the guy told me to call back on Friday. Now I'll just wait and see!

    I had a rep there told me AUGUST. I don't think the right hand knows what the left hand is doing at ATT.

    I assume you can't do this hack if you have the mms opt out?

    Can someone tell me which thread shutters directions are in for enabling MMS?

    I searched threads for his username but there are wayyyy too many to read through each and every thread

    Thanks!

    Correct. Actually to get it working I have to go into myaccount on att.com and change my phone to just a plane jane phone. About 5 minutes later it started to work. I left it like that over night. I changed our phone back to iPhones this morning, and as of right now it still works.
