I'm so glad we finally have an application for MMS...and it's free.

Basically, (and this is going by what happens for UK / O2 customers) when you receive a MM message, you receive a pin from O2. You then go to their web site and enter your phone number and pin (to basically 'create' your account) and you can see the picture. Well, what this app does, is once you get that pin, you click the application, enter your number and pin and from then on, any photos you receive will go straight into the app so you don't have to go online. What's even better, is that you are now able to send photos BACK! You buy 'credits' from the app maker. To buy 10 credits (10 photos to be able to send) will cost £3.79 or if you're American $5.56. Or you can buy 75 credits for £25 or $36.

It may be a little expensive but at least we can now say we have MMS on the iPhone. Hats off to the app developer, this is fantastic news, right?

Yes, O2 still hasn't jumped ship to allow inclusive MMS messages and I doubt they will. So until I really need to, I won't be buying any credits just yet, but it's a start!

AT&T offers MMS (receive only) on the iPhone. Gives us a website to go to and a password.

It's the actual receive ON THE PHONE and SEND that we want so badly.

MacWorld come and gone - and no sign of it coming... :(

This is good news and it's obvious people aren't reading carefuly enough. Based on some of the relentless demands for MMS around here, you would think people would be willing to pay $10/message for such a precious gift.

I'm not personally excited, but come on folks! It's MMS!

Well this is for all the people that said 'Eeeehhhh, the iPhone doesn't have MMS, the most basic of features'. Well now it does, so shut up lol. The iPhone is nearing the 100% perfection mark and that was a big step towards it.

What is "this app?" I think you failed to tell us what app you're talking about.

Allow me to quote:

So you're denieing people have wanted MMS for a long time?
No. I am telling you that your "solution" isn't MMS.

MMS is:

Take pic with your phone.

Send it to a friend.

Done.

Yes, you can still do this but there is 1 step inbetween those 2.

Take pic with phone.

Open MMS application.

Send it to a friend.
So:

Basically, (and this is going by what happens for UK / O2 customers) when you receive a MM message, you receive a pin from O2. You then go to their web site and enter your phone number and pin (to basically 'create' your account) and you can see the picture. Well, what this app does, is once you get that pin, you click the application, enter your number and pin and from then on, any photos you receive will go straight into the app so you don't have to go online. What's even better, is that you are now able to send photos BACK! You buy 'credits' from the app maker. To buy 10 credits (10 photos to be able to send) will cost £3.79 or if you're American $5.56. Or you can buy 75 credits for £25 or $36.
= 1 - 2 clicks... gooootcha.

Sorry... that's not even close to what anyone has been asking for.

I believe all that pin stuff is a one-time thng. After that it's a straight-ahead MMS app.

But what is it called? Why do we have to search for it?
