I really understand where you're coming from. I got my MMS working early and I have to say I'm not impressed with it at all. My biggest gripe is how it handles animated .gif files that have sound in the background. Any other phone I've had will play the animted .gif while at the same time play the sound file in the background. The iPhone doesn't do that. I was told it would....O_o. Anyway, what it does, when you're looking at the .gif in the message thread, it will animate, however, when you click on the .gif, it no longer animates. The sound file doesn't play in the background either. You have to click on the sound file and it brings up a blank screen and tries to play the file. Making the whole point of that MMS pointless because it doesn't play the way it was intended. I just thought with all the time Apple took to ready 3.0 and MMS that they could've that part right.
My T-Mobile G1 does the same thing.
