It's included in the unlimited messaging plan, but just not provisioned to be used. I was trying to see if anyone has gotten it work or found a work around. But the MMS feature is there.

you don't have a "regular" unlimited messaging plan. You have a iPhone data and messaging plan which isn't set up for MMS.

They are two different plans.

If there is a work around... i would like it too!

I know it's possible to get because it does work if you have family messaging or pay per use. I spent hours on the phone with AT&T trying to get it turned on so i could send with my other phone or with swirlyMMS and they said i couldn't get unlimited unless it was family plan but i did get pay per use on my account and that does work.

When you check your bill on the net, does it should when you have sent/received an MMS and if so about long after you sen/received it does it take for it show up?

I only used it a couple times to see if it worked. Are you asking how long it took for the person to receive it, or are you asking how long it took to show on the bill?

The person received it instantly just like any other time.

As soon as i found out i was getting charged per message i just went to using strictly email to send photos to people.

Like how long it took to show up on the bill. Because you can see your data usage on your bill and shows up almost instantly. For some reason im able to add/drop features off of my bill now. Yesterday i couldnt, so i added the 200 mms/sms plan. And then took it off, because at the bottom

I never looked to see if it got billed right away. I'm borrowing out my other phone to a friend right now or i could check.

I would be careful adding certain things to your iPhone plan. A while back i thought i would be tricky and go with the $20 Data Plan and then get the Messaging Unlimited plan that is offered for other phones thinking i could then have unlimited texts and also be able to send MMS when my card was using my other phone (just like how the family text plan works) but the Messaging Unlimited plan cancelled out my data plan without me knowing it and i was getting charged for data.
