    Does your ATT carrier file (in settings>general>About) say 4.0 or 5.0?

    I think (possibly...other than ATT releasing MMS by region or state) the problem may be we need the 5.0 carrier file for it to work.

    5.0 is included in 3.1 and it breaks MMS, 4.5 is the one that works

    This looks like this could be the problem for some like me. My At&t carrier is still 4.0

    I have stock firmware with no jailbreaking but I do have the 5.0 ipcc hack. The ipcc hack is necessary or else the MMS option in Settings won't show up. However, I'm still running OS 3.0. What is absolutely necessary is that AT&T updates your account on their end so you won't be charged per MMS.

    Each account has to have the MMS provisioning turned on and the iPhone text message plan must be changed to a regular multimedia messaging plan. These are the measures that AT&T put in place so that if you temporarily succeeded in getting MMS working, you wouldn't be able to continue to send and receive MMS due to these steps taken to secure the backdoor, so to speak.

    I've had my MMS working smoothly and flawlessly after speaking with an AT&T rep who removed these security measures way back in March/April. No deception was necessary with them at that time as I explained I was beta testing.

    Another thing that I did was place my SIM card in my friend's MMS capable AT&T phone, send a few picture messages, make a few calls and later I placed it back in my iPhone and rebooted it. I believe this is also necessary in order to rewrite the SIM card to configure it for MMS capability as well. I can imagine this taking quite some time to do on millions of iPhone accounts on AT&T's network!

    I have 4.0 and the hack from sinfuliphone. MMS still doesn't work. But if I put my friend's sim card from his Blackberry in my iphone it works, and if I put my iphone sim in his blackberry it doesn't do MMS.

    I really think that ATT is "releasing" the ability by groupings as to try and not flood the network possibly. I downloaded the hack yesterday and it wasn't working. got up this morning and tried it: now it works: sending and receiving. And I didn't change anything. (I also have the 4.0 carrier file) I dont know. luck of the draw maybe.
