    I used the method number 1 and got my MMSs to work but it ceases whenever I reboot the phone. i have to go and put the sim back in the other phone for a while. I also have the unlimited txt plan and not the iphone txt plan.

    I got this working finally by swapping the sim to another phone on the acct. 2 iPhones working with MMS and the swapping phone was a Samsung Eternity.

    any version of itunes works. If you use itunes 8.2 you just have to enable custom ipcc upgrading

    ON A MAC:

    You must first configure iTunes to permit the use of IPCC files. This only needs to be done once. To do this:

    1. If iTunes is running, quit iTunes (Command + Q)
    2. Open Terminal (Macintosh HD - Applications - Utilities - Terminal)
    3. Type or copy/paste the following into the Terminal window, then press the RETURN key:

    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

    4. Launch iTunes

    To apply an IPCC file to an iPhone:

    1. Click the iPhone in the DEVICES section on the left to select it
    2. Hold the OPTION key and click the CHECK FOR UPDATE button on the Summary screen
    3. Select the IPCC file to apply

    Well fortunately it worked for me. I did the steps (put SIM in old RAZR, talked to friend, waited 20 minutes, registered at Media Net website, sent test MMS, put SIM in iPhone, sent test MMS, received test MMS).

    Unfortunately, it only lasted about 4 hours. I received and sent a total of 3 pictures on my iPhone (1st gen). Now it stopped working.

    Oh well, fun while it lasted!

    Just an update on my post 3 messages ago.

    I put my sim card into my RAZR this morning, send an MMS, it failed, clicked "resend", it worked.

    Then I put the sim card back into my 1st gen iPhone and immediate received the MMS I sent from my fiancee's phone last night that failed.

    I then sent two more MMS messages and they both worked.

    I was able to get MMS working on both 3Gs on my account. Now visual voicemail does not work on them. I get a message that says "Voicemail Unavailabe Unable to initiate connection"

    Any ideas?

    my voicemail apn settings are set to acds.voicemail.com

    EDIT: got it working. I reset my APN settings to default. left voicemail APN set to wap.cingular.com and added MMS mmsc and proxy. Rebooted phone and everything is working again.

    How do I switch to a PDA data plan? I don't mind giving up Visual Voice Mail for mms.

    i just try to send a MMS on my phone and it work.
    let me get this clear dough i have a iPhone 3Gs running 3.1 beta.
    what am think is that is working because 3.1 come with MMS active in the 4.2 carrier.

    It'd be nice to have a JB for 3.1 (or the info from someone who has JBed 3.1) to find out what data settings are truely needed for MMS on iPhone plans...

    Has anyone attempted to use MMS on a 3GS? MMS worked for me the first couple of days I had my phone, all I had to do was upgrade to AT&T 5.0. Apparently iPhone 3GSs were already provisioned for MMS. However, it then stopped working, as AT&T must have decided to turn off my MMS. Even if I update network settings, reboot, change carrier file, etc., I do not even see MMS settings or the camera button. Has anyone else had this issue?

    I have iphone 3GS 16gb black. and i got mms, tether, and internet working perfectly. Updating to ver 5.0 didnt work for me. I eventually was able to get mms working after doing alot of modification to ver 5.0. I renamed it 5.1.

    here's some recent pics:
