    I was tinkering around and I figured it out.

    I started with a jailbroken 3g (although I think this will work with a unjailbroken one). I also have a family messaging unlimited plan with AT&T and Windows 7.

    I did the run command to enable custom ipcc files to be used in itunes. Win buttom +R (run command): C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    I went into Itunes with my iphone plugged in. I went to my iphone. Hold shift and click check for updates. In the bottom right hit the drop down menu so you can open the custom .ipcc file (carrier file for AT&T ver. 5.0). Itunes will install it. Reboot your phone.


    carrier file : RapidShare: Easy Filehosting


    Go to settings>general>cellular data network

    go to mms and type in the AT&T carrier information for mms.

    APN: wap.cingular
    Username: wap@cingulargprs.com
    Password: CINGULAR1
    MMSC: mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS Max Message Size: [leave blank]
    MMS UA Prof URL: [leave blank]

    Go to settings>messages> mms messaging [on]

    Try to send a mms. It will probably fail.

    Download iphone firmware 3.0 GM> go to itunes> plug phone in> hold shift and click on to check for update> click on the 3.0 GM file.

    Your original 3.0 device will update to 3.0 GM and you should be able to use MMS.

    Let me know how it goes.

    You have to call AT&T and convince they to unblock mms on your account. And I saw in in english earlier but I forgot how.

    There are text plans and messaging plans. You have to have the messaging as it includes MMS and IM alone with SMS.

    First, this is not new. Second, someone currently on a iPhone messaging plan can't do this and unless you know someone at AT&T they will not switch your plan. Too many people tried this around beta 2 and AT&T caught on.

    Either way I'm sure it won't work if you already have a iPhone plan. So It might as well be jailbroken lol.

    1) you cannot have an iphone data plan

    2) your phone does not need to be jailbroken

    First off I tried all the guides and none of them ever tried updating to 3.0 GM from a 3.0 final. This I believe allowed the thing to work as prior to me updating to the 3.0 GM I was still having problems even after I updated the carrier file and changed the mms settings. So yes it is new.

    Once again, not new. I've seen this on the Macrumors forums a while back. Sorry.

    Nothing really new here and again iPhone users with the iPhone messaging plan are stuck until AT&T flips the switch. This thread is going nowhere fast so it's closed.
