AT&T says: iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users to get MMS Service on September 25
If you’re an iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS owner and you’re on the AT&T network, you’ll be pleased to hear that AT&T is finally stepping out of the cellular stone ages and on September 25, 2009 will FINALLY enable MMS on the iPhone! It’s kind of amusing to be excited to get a 7 year old technology onto the otherwise wildly modern iPhone, but AT&T has been disappointingly slow with enabling the MMS service for iPhone users. Currently if you’re an AT&T subscriber and someone sends you an MMS message, you might get an annoying text message with a URL to a shoddy webpage and login/password to access a super reduced quality image of the original sent. I say *might* get the annoying message because on average I receive about 30% of incoming MMS’s this way, the remaining 70% get lost in the mystery AT&T MMS abyss and I don’t get any notification at all. Hooray AT&T! Welcome to 2002! err 2009!
