    Ok so to my explain myself to the guy above as to why not just use the email,

    The reason why i wanted swirlymms to work is because sometimes ill get pics from people that i really dont talk to much or people that i just meet, especially female friends. So if they send you a pic you dont get it, and once you tell them to email it to you they get kind of skeptical as to why they should email it to you. Have had that happen to me a couple of times. Especially if it was something sent out of no where and dont want to do it again. The only way to keep this working is by doing the imei trick. ATT picks up on your imei once you call and itll tell the system not to allow you to send mms. You have to actually get to Tech support and tell them to make sure that you are being registered as another device, "the one you used the imei off of" and to be thorough and make sure anything with iphone is off your account. I had an hour conversation with tech support till they finally found on another system check that i was still being shown as an iphone.

    what puzzles me is that I changed to the Media Max Unlimited back when swirly was in beta, and my visual voicemail has alway worked, I'm on 1.1 now and it still works, pretty crazy ; )

    Can you logon to the cingular.com website and goto your plan and tell me what it list?

    well I checked and I still have iPhone plan and can still send and receive messages through swirlymms even tho I called them to change plans, I'm ok with it I get visual voicemail and mms service, I think the AT&T rep I talked to just hooked me up for free without having to change my plan, I'm happy!!!

    If there was a legit way to get MMS working, without losing VVM, then I'd be all set with my 3G phone.

    wow i completly give up on trying to get this to work.
    i have done completly everything possible and its not working.
    i called att and told them im switching phones back to an lg phone and told them to put me on another plan.
    that was customer support.

    idk what else to do.
    all the settings are as shown above and its still giving an error message.
    none of these things ever work for me. im always just give up.
    unless someone REALLYY wants to help me; i give up on mms through swirly.

    You need to do what i said to do. I thought the same thing. I spoke with 4 different tech support reps and they said it looks fine on our end. Put your sim into a regular phone and try to send and receive mms thru it. If it doesnt then on att's end your still registering as an iphone. Have them really check deep in their system. Tell them you had an iphone before and you didnt use it no more after you got the lg. Trust me you have to do that. Also keep the sim in the lg phone till you get mms to work. Once it works in the lg itll work in the iphone.

    Ok guys I have been ripping my hair out of my head ever since swirly has came to be. I always thought that you guys kept your iphone plan and got this working, So I say WTF x 100 WHY??? would you get rid of your iphone plan and use a standard plan, I tried this once and the internet is slower and the voicemail is a standard voicemail now.... so why dont you just use a standard PDA phone???? isnt that a waste of an iphone to cancel the fast internet and the voicemail. so I ask again ?????????????why????????? and lastly can we find a better work around to keep our iphones intacked? LMK what u think.

    The internet speeds i have notices no difference in data up/down.
    There is no difference in the IPHONE plans compared to the normal plans. in the exception of the Visual Voice Mail. It still connects over EDGE for everything... this includes the Visual Voice mail. The reason that you dont get Visual Voicemail after getting rid of the IPHONE plan is because its a specail feature the ATT turns on with the IPHONE data plan. so once your off that then you no longer have permissions to access that. pretty simple.

    For anyone that is having any issues still trying to get swirly to work try this.

    Take any other ATT phone and put your SIM card in it. try to send and receive MMS messages. IF this does not work call ATT. Once you get your normal ATT phone sending and receiving the MMS messages then put the sim back into the iphone. and check all your settings and then test. I would recomend that you atleast have 3 bars when trying to send the MMS message otherwise you may not connect for a few mins.

    If this does not work then post images of your errors and your settings.

    thats a nice little work around. i was hoping to see MMS in the 2.0 upgrade. i am guessing that and stereo blue tooth will be in the next upgrade. SOON!! haaa
    haha stero bluetooth.. where did you take that pill at.

    I flashed my BL to 3.9 with BootNeuter. Faked the IMEI with Ziphone and called AT&T to have my plan changed. I downloaded Swirly, entered all settings correctly and kept getting the fail error. On a whim I decided to send an email to my MMS address [email protected] and voila it worked!! Now everything is up and running and I've been sending and receiving flawlessly. This is a great work around. Props to you guys who came up with this. Any idea what will happen when they jailbreak 2.0. Will we be able to upgrade and re-install this app and have it work?

    UPDATE: Just tried to sync my phone with itunes to add some photos and music and itunes doesnt recognize my phone. It is telling me to bring it to an Apple store. Is this because of the IMEI #? Am I supposed to change it back to the original #?

    No need for a new thread bro, but like i said plenty of people have done this and they have had no issues with syncing. Buddy of mine got it done on his phone and its syncing just fine.

    so if i can somehow change my IMEI (i say this because i have iPhone 3g, and there's no known method to change the IMEI) to an older razor that is not being used, then MMS will work?
    and if so visual voicemail will not work?

    yes, but nobody has found a way to unlock the 3G yet. If they do unlock the 3G, they can spoof the IMEI. This means you can MMS, but then you wont get visual voice mail either. The work around is to use YouMail YouMail ) Voicemail You Designed and setup a home page icon.

    change imei on 3g iPhone, I dont think so. Not yet. I'm hoping zibri will update ziphone to where itll change the imei in first gen iPhones on 2.x firmware. I'm still on 1.1.4 just because of swirlymms.
