Enable iPhone MMS
AT&T iPhone users of 2009 can now officially join the cellular world of 2002, with the ability to finally send and receive MMS messages. You have to upgrade to iPhone 3.1 and download a new carrier file to enable MMS on your AT&T iPhone. After reading so many negative reviews about the iPhone 3.1 update, I am holding out on this ancient technological ‘upgrade’ from AT&T until Apple sorts out the 3.1 bugs, I waited 7 years I think I can wait a few more weeks/months. If you already have 3.1 installed, or you don’t mind installing 3.1 with the risks, then plug in your iPhone and open iTunes to get MMS capabilities. You can read more from Apple here:

Just a word of warning. MMS only works with iPhone 3G and 3GS. Apparently, the original iPhone (first generation) is not allowed to do MMS.
Can anyone explain why this is? I can’t.
you dont have to wait. i got it enabled on my iphone 3G running 3.0
just update the carrier profile (5.5) manually. and it works like a charm.
