So wait - the phone's been out for almost a year, and you haven't heard this? No research at all?

Anyway - you'll learn to live without. Email's much better, IMO.

I don't understand how people bought the iPhone and didn't do any research prior to the purchase. Makes no sense and its your fault for not doing so- return it if $500 isn't good enough for MMS.

I understand your pain (though I don't actually feel it.) When you spend that much on a phone you shouldn't be faulted for expecting it to have a feature that most other newer phones, including many lower priced phones, do have. Unfortunately the iPhone just doesn't have MMS just yet. But, if you can wait until June, you'll probably be able to get it when the flood of new applications comes out. Then, you can have your MMS -AND- the other great advantages of the iPhone. :cool:

It doesn't hurt to do some research before you buy something.
