These are instructions on how to enable MMS capabilities on your iPhone 2G. You must be jailbroken on the 3.0 iPhone firmware to do this.

You can find instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone here: Windows, Mac

IMPORTANT: This patch will ENABLE the MMS feature on the 3.0 firmware. It will NOT input the correct settings for your carrier. Therefore MMS will only work once the correct carrier settings are set.

Step One
Press to launch Cydia from your SpringBoard

Step Two
Press to select the Sections tab at the bottom of the screen

Step Three
Press to select Messaging from the list of Categories

Step Four
Press to select ActivateMMS2G from the list of Packages

Step Five
Press the Install button at the top right of the screen

Step Six
Press the Confirm button at the top right to begin installation.

Step Seven
Once installation has completed successfully press the large Reboot Device button.

Step Eight
You iPhone will now be automatically restarted. Once the reboot has completed tap to open the messages application from the Springboard.

Notice you now have MMS capabilities. Please be aware that your cellular provider may charge an additional fee for using MMS. Please contact them before send an MMS to verify charges.

Thanks go out to geniusan the author of this patch! You can learn more about how to use MMS here

To input your networks settings please navigate to Settings - General - Network - Cellular Data Network Settings

After upgrading to 3.1 DO NOT enable MMS using this. I tried it 3 times and it hung my iphone 2G. If it is hung enter DFU mode using the tutorial in iclarified. After which use the DFU mode in PWNAGE and then restore normally with the custom firmware you already built

My laptop does not see my iphone when I connect the device to my computer. Did you have this problem before? And how could you solve it? Could you please tell me how to enter DFU mode? Thank you so much.

Does this work on firmware 3.1?
kevin - October 4, 2009 at 12:55pm
NO!!!!! Activatemms2G does NOT work for 3.1! IT will Brick your phone and it just becomes a big hassle. Were going to have to wait till someone makes a patch for this
