you will first have to jailbreak the phone using ultrasnow then you will be able to sent mms using this tool.

hi, i have at&t as my carrier and i have jailbreak then unlock my iphone 3g using ultrasn0w and i do not see the camera button available on the messege at all. i have unlimited text and picture messeging so that shouldn't be a problem but i can't and i am unable to view that particular camera at all.

Worked like a charm! Thanks Joker. When recieving pics, they come in at very low res, but it still works. I've hear others are having this problem too. Just one little kink to work out I guess. But it's working. Thanks.

This worked great for T-mobile. After a phone restart the Camera icon is available to the left of the text entering box. Nice!

DOESN'T WORK! I've tried every setting for TMobile that I could find online INCLUDING THE ONES STRAIGHT FROM TMOBILE and it does not work. I recommend removing this from the website to stop getting peoples hopes up like mine!
tam
tam - June 29, 2009 at 7:58pm
why would i post something that didn't work for me? Maybe you aren't doing it right, maybe you should try some other settings, but after telling me to try it and remove the post, you are not going to get the other settings that i found man
Joker
Joker - June 29, 2009 at 10:12pm
The settings for tmobile are APN Name: wap.voicestream.com Proxy: 216.155.165.050 or .216.155.165.50:8080 MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc but under MMS Max Message Size put 1000 or you will not b able to receive messages or send large messages

Well the FCC is investigating exclusive contracts between cell phone companies and makers and may ban it. Also Verizon has a good chance of getting a iphone in 2010.

I've added the MMS settings, but the message still fails to send. Wierdly, when I enter in wap.voicestream.com and then leave the network settings menu, when I come back to it, the wap... is gone. Each time I enter it, it's gone when I return to that menu. When I enter internet2.voicestream.com, it remains there, but still no luck with sending.

Hi, you have to enter the MMS settings (the original carrier One with original carrier SIM), then when you restart you will see those all icons...
san20176
san20176 - June 30, 2009 at 7:10pm
I don't really understand what you ment by that.i also have the same problems i have at&t as my carrier and i don't see the camera when i try to sent a messege.

Hi, Does anybody knows the MMS settings fro T-Mobile UK.... thanks
Anarchy

You have to enable GPRS/EDGE and enable MMS (that should be done by your provider)... Then you have to configure MMS Settings right. I had them disabled, after I enabled EDGE & MMS I've restarted the phone and now I have the camera on SMS

Hi, just a note, if you run on o2 Ireland, there is no possibility send MMS outside of Ireland, only in nationally. I tried to send and i cant so i spoke with o2 agent and he said, unable only national MMS allowed.
