Why hasn't anyone made an MMS app yet? If its as easy as they say it is Im surprised no one has yet. Is it even possible or would Apple just refuse it?

The million dollar question we have been asking for a year.
Actually if you are jailbroken, there is the swirly MMS app but it never worked for me.

Somebody has tried but it hasn't worked for everyone. I have no idea why Apple won't do this on iPhone. It's my hope for the iPhone(besides video and cut & paste) to get this.

If you want to send and MMS to someone just "email" photo to the following addresses:

ATT Customers
Phone#@mms.att.net

Verizon Customers
Phone#@vzwpix.com

Sprint Customers
Phone#@messaging.sprintpcs.com

Example for ATT:
6305555555@mms.att.net

You take a photo, then click email photo, type in address. Bada Bing.

Work easy for my for ATT, haven't tried it for Verizon or Sprint in a while.

Anyone correct me if I am wrong.

someone has tried an app that is legal on the non jailborken iPhone? It seems like it should be so easy to make it for the app store

I have never tried it. I am going to have a co worker try then sending it to my#@att.net.

I would be surprised if it works.

My family (who all have Verizon) has to email the pictures to me on my gmail account on the iPhone. There is a way they can add your email to your contact info and send it to you that way.

If someone sends a picture MMS to your actual phone number you will be referred to viewmymessage.com in order to look at it. And since there is not cut and paste on iPhone it's a real pain.

This is what i'm deepy disappointed about and the reason why many people laugh at me when 'im trying to say how good this is and they ask if it has MMS. Why can't someone just make it, I don't mind paying for it but it's a necessity.

i agree, ill pay for it as well. it needs to be done, i cant imagine it would be that hard for someone to make given what is already out there.

yes tell me about it. You would think the would give you one of two features, either MMS (the way we know and love it) or copy paste, so those damn id's and passwords can at least be entered with speed at viewmymessage.com

I never view my picture messages until I get home and look it up on my computer, then the person who sends it always asks me what took me so long.:oops:

yep, my verizon family does laugh at me.
you should laugh at them and tell them to get a real phone that can actually support e-mail not crappy hacks like MMS.

I think AT&T sped up the .viewmymessage.com b/c I used to do the same, but now even with edge, it seems to load pretty quickly.

I really don't mind using email option instead anyway.
