[iPhone] It's 9/25 did you get MMS yet?

I'm in AT&T's home state of New Jersey and no MMS yet as of 4:31 AM.

Me neither . I'm in Texas .

Will At&T notify us of a download ? Or will it come via I-Tunes?

AT&T has said the update will be via iTunes and will happen in late morning Pacific time, so not till this afternoon Eastern time, guys. In other words, it's way too early in the morning to be excited.

cites AT&T's Facebook page.

Go back to sleep!

MMS just started working! I've had the 5.1 ipcc on there for a while, but it did not previously work.

i thought that there wasn't going to be another software update because 3.0 was the one that allowed it. i think it's just an ota update. i still don't have it in jersey.

Hang in there - the press release says 10AM EDT

I believe this will be a carrier file update and you will most likely have to go get it via iTunes - for those of you who did not upgrade to 3.1 - my bet is it will force you to do so at that time as well....

This might help:

For reasons I don't understand, MMS for this phone seems to be as hard for AT&T as moving a mountain. DSLR was told it would be a rolling update throughout the day, MacRumors was told it would be 'turned on' by late morning PST. I wouldn't be surprised if AT&T stretches the definition of offering MMS to 'some customers starting Sept. 25th' if things look like they're going badly.

Hell, at this point I would not be surprised if I don't get the notification until sometime this weekend.

You download the carrier file (I can send it to you if you want) and then make some modifications to iTunes so you can update the IPCC file. Takes all of 2 minutes.

I'm trying to send a regular text message (don't have MMS yet) and the bar goes 2/3 of the way through and then it dies. I wonder if this is somehow related to the MMS roll-out?

I would imagine that is AT&T making the changes currently. You would think they would alert customers.

I used to work for AT&T Wireless many years ago. They take things in a very pragmatic approach.

Blame Apple for not having MMS yet. According to the ATT facebook fanpage, MMS is implemented and out of their hands since Apple is in charge of releasing the carrier file via iTunes.

ATT was told that Apple would release it 'late morning PST on Friday', but who knows when anyone will actually be able to get it.
