i can receive MMS on my iPhone 3G but i cant send them.... idk why. i tried by email me a pic to [phone number]@mms.att.net with a picture attached and i received it like a normal MMS but i cant send them....
If you are receiving them you should be able to send them. You could put the sim in another phone and if it is sending and receiving then theres something with the phone. As long as you are getting them one way you have the new ipcc, just make sure under settings> general> network> cellular data network all those settings are correct.
If all your settings are correct, try sending from different places, for example actually go to pictures, go to a picture, then press the button in the lower left hand corner> mms, then choose who to send to and send. Plus don't forget about audio messaging, you can try that too just to see if it will allow you to send. To audio message use the new voice memos app, record something then "share it".
So were you ever able to send them? Maybe your account was accidentally mms provisioned, a few weeks ago on 2.2.1 I was not getting the viewmymessage sms, they had to have an AT&T engineer look at it who did fix it. I am wondering if I was accidentally provisioned to receive the mms's but at that point the os didn't support it. This could have happened to you but it just happened at a more convenient time than mine. Could just be a bug on their end that is working in your favor.
Hmmm weird. Only thing I could think of would be to install the ipcc, but since half of it is working I'd play it safe and not update. You could try resets or toggling airplane mode, but probably won't have much luck there. If you can't get it working look on the bright side, at least you're getting something.
You could call them and try to get it provisioned correctly, but that seems unlikely now since they got a memo telling them not to do so. By calling them you might open their eyes to whatever is allowing it on your phone and it might get undone. If you have the iPhone sms plan you could change it to a regular plan online and see if that works.
You probably already saw/tried this but it's a little more than just putting your sim in another phone
And the link to the medianet site http://mymedianet.wireless.att.com/
The media net site will send a text with a 4 digit code, it will need to be entered on the website to access it. This is another way to confuse them into allowing mms.
That's a good question. But as far as I can tell it probably confuses their system into thinking you have a typical AT&T phone since the iPhone has the safari browser not the medianet one. Also before you enter your # on that site you have to have the sim in a medianet capable phone(probably every AT&T phone other than iPhone) for it to allow you to continue. Enter your number, then the 4 digit code sent to you by text, and play around a little. Oh and the other thing was that AT&T told me before that you need medianet(whether they meant browser or plan) to have mms.
the medianet method worked for me. i am actually shocked this worked. it seems it changed the model phone the system thought i had. so i was able to change my messaging plan to a regular one. i actually never sent an mm with the mms capable phone but when i put my sim back in the iPhone mms was working.
