I keep reading this "slap in the face" crap. Did you research the product before you bought it? If so, no one slapped you, if not, you slapped yourself.I will agree that email is a much better route for the tech savvy or people that understand. The issue is with people who have their regular phone, and don't want to change or think there is something wrong with you that you just spent all this money on this fancy phone, that there "free" phone can do. Its actually kind of annoying! I actually think that its a slap in the face on Apple's part to their customers not to include something so simple.
good point(s)I don't even know if it states anywhere that the iPhone won't do MMS. You'd have to really dig for that. And it's not exactly a major feature, so why would I even look it up? I think most people would expect such a standard feature on a camera phone.
I love my iPhone like I love the US, both have problems that need to be worked out, but I wouldn't trade them for anything else. I will voice my opinion and pray that it falls on ears that can actually make a change for the better. Saying people should shut up and stop complaining has no purpose.
All of you are a whole bunch of complainers.... SHUT UP! Then go get your free phone with another company... Who held a gun to your head to buy an iPhone... If you can't MOD then to freakin' bad, make your own phone and MOD it the way you want....
Unfortunately AT&T did not design the iPhone, that is Apples fault that you have to use viewmymessage. You should have split the email into two. Complain about how ****ty viewmymessage is. Like the fact that the username and password are completely impossible to remember and because of the iPhones lack of cut and paste it is an enormous hassle to get the username and password correct. Then you can go complain about the lack of MMS support for the phone to Apple. In the end everything will remain the same though. I don't see Apple pulling their heads out of their ass's anytime soon...I just sent corporate an email,
I must say, having had the iPhone 3g for some time now, this is the best cell phone I have ever had. The shear concept of Apples latest iPhone is mind blowing let alone the functionality. However, as far as receiving and/or sending multimedia messages goes I am at a loss.
The "viewmymessage.com" idea is, in respect to the iPhone, utterly shameful. This, ironically enough, is probably the single worst feature I have ever been subjected to in my adult life. First of all it's a hassle. To have to visit an outside source (a web page) to view a multimedia message in light of all this phone does is inexcusable. Secondly, and most importantly, it hardly ever works. Out of one hundred attempts to log in to view my multimedia message, it might work twice. That's a ninety eight percent failure rate and I just don't get it. For all the greatness that this phone reeks of, why hobble it with such a poor feature? I am truly at a loss here.
