    Well my MMS worked great for 4 weeks and now its gone...



    I guess I messed around with my carrier settings a little too much yesterday and last night they shut it down. After posting the updated ipcc file for everyone, I started to play around with the cellular data settings screen further. I got it to the point where you can edit your carrier settings, mms settings, apn settings, carrier images, all kinds of crazy stuff, and was about to post it when I realized I had been cut off.

    It was too late to talk to level two tech support so I decided to try the old swim swapping trick. I could access media net from my old phone but when I went to send a MMS, it said user barred from network!

    I called the level two tech support this morning and was told the same old song and dance that the iphone can not be provisioned for MMS even if I was a dev. They said further more that my account had been red flagged and now when I call the person immediately ask if I am calling about MMS provisioning.

    I talked to a tech manager and he told me that they received a memo from Apple today that no iphone should be enabled with WAP Push, MMS, or any other provisioning not stated in original contract. He went on further to say that they will be doing a sweep blitz over the next few weeks to rid the system of people who have gotten it provisioned.

    Well I waited 18 months for MMS, whats another 2?


    daaayyuummm dude.... banhammer.... i know how that feels bro

    ok so i read through most of the comments on this and i use a 2g iphone with t-mobile, i currently pay for a mms plan with t-mobile all i need is a way to enable it on my phone its self i can use my data plan also i was able to do that with "iPhone configuration utility" the thing is there is no way to enable mms or tethering through that tool. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to enable the options in the cellular data network tab, i tried updating with the IPCC File provided but nothing happens.

    Just find a tmobile ipcc and it can be edited to allow access. Once you find one let me know and I will edit it for you



    Just got off the phone with the evil empire (AT&T), and now my MMS is back baby!

    I got the coolest rep on the phone. We bullsh!ted about sports, women and the iphone for about 45 minutes. Anyway I hope it last a while now. No more messing with carrier settings for me!

    I started off asking to fix my mms and he said that they couldn't turn it on even for devs. I told him that I understood and that I would like to see if I could get the "view my message" texts to work then (I knew somehow they were blocking the transmission entirely and I was hoping that this would allow me to at least try a sim swapping trick). He said he could try that. After a few minutes of messing around with the settings on his end, he sent me a test MMS. I was expecting to see a "Click here to view my message" text but instead I saw a photo! I don't know whether he was being cool and turned it on for me or if by trying to make the "view my message" texts work he enabled it accidentally.

    Maybe go in with the story that you want the text messages and see what happens. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    i found a t-mobile ipcc file but its a german one so idk if it will work.

    edit: i found some helpful people who were willing to email me a pre editied tmo ipcc file with mms and tethering enabled i am going to test it out.

    edit: so i used the tmobile ipcc wile restarted the phone and nothing has changed except the settings app crashes when i go to cellular data network.
