    does anyone know if there is a web app for the iPhone that will allow you to take pictures and send them in a text message to another phone?

    here are the addresses for the providers:

    Alltel = xxxxxxxxxx@message.alltel.com
    AT&T = xxxxxxxxxx@mms.att.net
    Boost Mobile = xxxxxxxxxx@myboostmobile.com
    Cingular (AT&T) = xxxxxxxxxx@mms.mycingular.com
    Einstein PCS = xxxxxxxxxx@einsteinmms.com
    Sprint = xxxxxxxxxx@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    T-Mobile = xxxxxxxxxx@tmomail.net
    US Cellular = xxxxxxxxxx@mms.uscc.net
    Verizon Wireless = xxxxxxxxxx@vzwpix.com
    Virgin Mobile = xxxxxxxxxx@vmobl.com

    the X's stand for the 10 digit phone #

    I actually do Tech Support for Sprint and working with BlackBerrys on their network, which do not support MMS/Picture Mail, means that we deal a lot with customers looking for a workaround. The listing above seems pretty accurate, however, I do know off the top of my head that the AT&T one does require "1" and then the ten-digit phone number. I'm not one hundred percent on the others as of now but we do have documentation on the actual domains and the appropriate number to put in as well. If you guys would like, I can refer to that document and correct any misinformation tomorrow evening. Let me know if it would be worth my time.

    All of the above listed is correct. I do add a 1 before every number as well.

    Both of them used to work fine a few months back. They may have changed something.

    Another way to send (cough)MMS(cough) is to email the picture to XXXXXXXXXX@teleflip.com. This one isn't carrier specific and will translate the email into the carriers preferred method of MMS...

    Which does no good on At&t since if you send a picture message to a At&t customer it sends you a link you have to check on your computer browser. Can't be checked on the iPhone anyways.

    I'm a little confused still.

    You have to have people send the MMS to your email address instead of your phone number. All there is to it. They will be able to send it to your email.

    It can be your regular email or if you want to create one just for pics that is up to you.

    It worked for me Iphone> ATT non iphone. It just took about 5 minutes or so for the other person to receive the message. But it did indeed work. I have tried it with verizon as well as t-mobile.

    There is a an app out there called PicFree. It sends a picture to any US mobile phone via MMS or even to an email. And the best part is that sending pictures is free!
