AT&T finally delivers MMS to iPhone users


Well folks, it's been a long time coming, but we iPhone users here in the U.S. can now send MMS messages, courtesy of the latest carrier update pushed out by AT&T and Apple just a short while ago. Most cell phone users have been doing this for years, even those with inexpensive non-smartphones, but Apple insisted that we use traditional email to send pictures. Although iPhone users in other parts of the world have had this functionality since the 3.0 update a few short months ago, we were still forced to wait here in the U.S., mainly because AT&T needed to make sure their network was ready to handle it.

Simply connect your iPhone (OS 3.1 only) to iTunes 9 and follow the directions to download and update the new AT&T 5.5 carrier file, which takes just a few seconds or so. When complete, reboot the phone and start exchanging pictures with all of your flip phone-carrying friends!

Honestly, I have been anxiously awaiting this feature for so long, I found myself checking iTunes for updates all morning. It was a little embarrassing telling people that they couldn't send me a picture because my fancy, schmancy iPhone couldn't receive MMS messages.
