OK FOLLOW THIS

1.GET YOUR iPhone AND SIMPLY EJECT THE SIM CARD

2.PUT YOUR iPhone SIM CARD ON YOUR OLD ATT PHONE(MAKE SURE ITS ATT OR IT WILL NOT WORK..THIS IS NOT A HACK OR ANYTHING..THIS IS NORMAL)

3.ONCE YOU HAVE INPUTED YOUR iPhone SIM CARD UNTO YOUR OLD ATT PHONE...DO SOMETHING LIKE...SEND A TEXT...OR MAKE A CALL OR GO TO THE INTERNET...DO SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE ATT KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOW USING YOUR OLD ATT PHONE INSTEAD OF YOUR iPhone(CHECK ON YOUR WIRELESS ACCOUNT JUST TO BE SURE...IF IT SHOWS THE iPhone PICTURE THEN CHANGE IT TO YOUR OLD ATT PHONE PICTURE

4.ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS GO TO THIS LINK

I don't doubt you because I've had MMS working since beta 4 but why don't you post pics of the picture actually sent? :)

fyi....Ive done these steps in completion and the media net web site wants me to change my plan from an iPhone data plan to a media net plan. I've done that too and yes MMS works but my visual voicemail doesn't work because the media net plan doesn't support the iPhone's visual voicemail. it states The phone with this wireless number is not supported by My MEdia Net. Please check the number entered or you can visit att.net

That's a lot of runaround work just to get the MMS icon to show up when you can't even send any pictures! I would tell people to just wait if it doesn't work now.

:cool:

Motion to change thread title to something a lot less deceiving.

If MMS sends those tiny pics I am not all hyped up about it anymore. Email is the way to go.

I fail to understand why anyone would bother to do all that just to get a non-working MMS icon. I have that right now with my 3.1b3. It's pointless. When it's ready, it will be turned on.

Thread title changed.

When you click on the little picture it brings it up full screen...I love the idea, way less clutter in the sms/mms thread of that person.

Men! I got the mms icon by downloading ._Att_us.ipcc and downloading it.then you hold down shift and click check for updates.select the file and it will unlock tethering and mms.the crux is that mms wont work because AT&T don't support it but tethering works. You will have to set visual voice mail as acds.voicemail under cellular network settings in network settings. Also try help.benm.at/help.php from iPhone for further help
