I would think OTA but knowing ATT, they are great at screwing us over. But its on there end so there is no reason we would need to take it into the store.

::sigh:: I was just about to call ATT because I couldn't figure out why I didn't have the option to picture text when I updated.

Sorry to be a newb, but what is OTA?

They are going to have to put out a carrier settings update to enable MMS on the phones, so it won't be OTA, you will have to hook up to iTunes.

Well I would be glad if that's true. I really don't understand why it wasn't included in the 3.0. I will be glad when some push notification apps will be available.

yes, whenever they decide to get their sh*t together you will have to connect to iTunes to get the newest ipcc file which will update the carrier settings to enable MMS.

Well according to the OP they will have their sh*t together for friday. Although I will believe it when I see it because AT&T reps aren't always the most knowledgeable. I am hoping that the rep was right. Maybe I will try calling them tomorrow.

There was an article in usa today about this. ATT said it is a data capacity problem and it would be the end of the summer before it was available

They've had since march (probably before) to figure that out and address it, so they should be ready for this friday. An AT&T employee on one of the threads in the software forum said yesterday we would probably see it much earlier than expected. Maybe in a week or two, but that was going just by where he worked. So maybe they are ready enough to launch friday.

Subscribed! What's this push stuff yalls talking about? Anybody else called AT&T and confirmed this I think if you call AT&T you should try and get connected to their tech support they seem to know what their talking about more so than anyone else there.

I am calling tomorrow with some of the numbers I have from the early beta days, those AT&T techs knew more about mms than any normal AT&T reps.
Would you like that with or without a grain or salt?
With one of those grains of salt from a soft pretzel :p

Let us know what they say when you call them... I am tired of getting picture messages with the stupid username and password codes and having to text back and say "sorry I can't see your picture, I have an iPhone can you please e-mail that to me?" and they text back from their razr and say "sorry I can't e-mail on my phone." so then you try to find a pen and paper to write down the code (or, you did before the copy & paste was available anyway)... pain in the rear!
