    I have a 3G with 3.0.1 firmware, on AT&T. A few weeks ago I installed a package through Cydia that "unlocked" the MMS capabilities in the Messaging App and altered my network settings to enable sending/receiving MMS on AT&T's network, but I still could not send or receive MMS messages. I always got an error message that it couldn't send.

    Fast-forward to today, and I can now send and receive MMS. Under Cellular Data Network (in Settings on my phone) my settings are:

    Cellular Data:
    APN: wap.cingular
    username: <blank>
    password: <blank>

    Visual Voicemail:
    APN: acds.voicemail
    username and password: <blank>

    MMS:
    APN: wap.cingular
    username and password: <blank>
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 066.209.011.032
    MMS Max Message Size: 614400
    MMS UA Prof URL: http://wap.sonyericsson.com/UAprof/W800iR101.xml


    Has anyone else had luck with MMS working already?? I wonder if AT&T has already "flipped the switch on" and are just waiting for the software upgrade from Apple to enable the iPhone's MMS features in Messaging.

    no, no separate mms package. what i installed just enabled editing of the cellular network settings in the Settings app, and revealed the mms portion of the UI in the Messaging app. This is all part of the existing iPhone firmware. Apple just locks us out of it so we can't edit the cellular network settings.

    I'm trying to test it on a friend's 3G to see if it works for him. I'll let you know.

    It was a package from a repo that doesn't seem to wrk anymore (the repo). Basically it appears all the package did was automate the editing of the carrier.plist file in the ATT carrier bundle to enable editing the cellular network data as well as open up the MMS portion of the UI. It doesn't look like it'd be too hard to edit the plist fie manually in a text editor and add all the appropriate settings that way.

    That would be neat someone should upload the package again or give instructions on how to do it manually

    seems to have worked for me, although i didnt download any package from cydia to do it. I used a modded .ipcc file, and enabled MMS and tethering. Then used the OP's info to get it to work.

    I'm trying to fiddle around with my settings to see if I can get this to work....

    But I can't edit my Cellular Data Network information.
    I'm not jailbroken, either. The option / section doesn't show up.

    If I use tethering, do you (whoever is reading this) think I'll get charged?
    Even if I use it for brief browsing. Will they 'catch' me?
