although AT&T don't commit to their inclusive SMS. Many other mobile providers around the globe have clearly stated their iPhone plans. I haven't heard any mention of mms with in those plans. Although I would love this I can't see it happening.
nice find! that would be sweet - i do miss mms. i don't get a lot of mms messages from my friends, but i do like to send them every now and then. i wouldn't be surprised if steve jobs hadn't mentioned this during the wwdc keynote because AT&T still hadn't worked out how they were going to handle the messaging parts of the plans they will offer (and we still don't know about text messages!)...
of all the camera phones I've owned I have used MMS more than SMS. My wife and I send tons of pictures to each other of kids. MMS is useful to me because if I am at the store and I want my wife to see something there to see if I am picking up the right thing I will snap a picture, send it to her (can do the same with email but with no push 15 minutes is too long to wait) and then get a yes or no reply or call.
There have been things introduced at Keynotes in the past that shipped with surprise features not mentioned at the Keynote. And although I would like MMS support, I'm doing as the article suggests and taking this with a grain of salt.
