I don't really understand how mass MMSing can bog down a wireless network from a major cellular carrier. Can someone explain it to me? Ahm like to be de intellectible of dis to dat, but ah aint understandin'.
well its just like a sirge in trafik on there network because all these people will want to use there phone all day long and send lots of pics and stuff ya no like that bottleneck thing or something and then the calls start failing because the banwith is all eatten up

I did all the steps but I'm on the last part where you click (shift click) on update and I can't click on the folder? I saved the downloaded folder on my documents but it's compressed so I tried to extract all too but it won't let me because there's some folders and files with the same name? :(

I really doubt MMS will bog down the network. There are plenty of other data hungry things to download. Pics are less than a meg. most apps are more than that and they get DLed all the time.

Will I be able to IM multiple people at a time? Friends with other phones can IM a whole group of people the same message. When I've tried that, it doesn't go through and I get the error/ red exclamation mark

Here's a quick fix that will work. At least until u get MMS working. Goto Settings > messages and turn off MMS. You'll be able to send out group text. Just remember to turn it back on tomorrow or when u plan to use MMS

I think it's just the fact that there are millions of iPhone users on one carrier (AT&T). That many data-hungry users would plug up any American carrier, methinks.

What I'm trying to say is, the signals from AT&T are all over the airwaves, right? I mean, it's not a solid, physical thing, so how can users bog it down. I we todd did.

I should have deleted that post before someone quoted it. It looks pretty bad out of context.

MMS with No Data Plan

Hey,

I apologize if this is covered in this thread already, but have people had success using MMS without a data plan? Any details would be appreciated for a prospective 3G owner. Thanks! :cool:

MMS is covered by the Texting/messaging plan, not Data.
