AT&T to turn on iPhone MMS switch late morning Pacific Time Friday

AT&T to turn on iPhone MMS switch late morning Pacific Time Friday
AT&T announced on its Facebook page that the carrier will flip the switch, turning on the iPhone's MMS capabilities tomorrow. To be a bit more precise, it will start "late morning" Pacific Time on Friday. The exact statement said , "We know you've been eager for this service so we wanted to offer a quick update on the launch plans for MMS on Friday, September 25. Late morning, Pacific Time, on Friday, the new carrier settings update enabling MMS should be live and ready." iPhone users, you have waited a long time for this and sometime tomorrow afternoon, you will have finally caught up to the rest of the cellphone using public.

YEP.Some blame ATT others Apple. I heard that Apple was saying MMS was outdated.

Maybe At&t should use the money that they are paying the celebrities for advertising towards their coverage... Mary, Hayden, etc... Verizon, IMO, uses their money on much more important things. Coverage, customer service, coverage, STI, coverage... No need to get a celebrity as a spokesman. The Network speaks for itself.

Now days, it seems that most people I know usually share pictures on Facebook or Flikr instead of MMS

It's both of there fault AT&T for not putting it on there early and Apple for not have the ability on there device to do it. it shouldn't of taken that long for them to do this i mean come on even the oldest nokia in history can send mms...lol AT&T is putting more money in there coverage, that way people are having problems with there iphone there too much networking at one time on the device then they excpected, so the supply is much more than the demand sill AT&T

Yay. People can now resume sending me stupid pictures...any MMS that I've gotten in the last couple years were dumb pictures that people forwarded on.

People say it's a great phone, but no one says it's the God phone. Maybe some of you guys get YouTube videos confused with real life. But like I said before, there are too many iPhone haters and Verizon users on this site. I always feel so underrepresented when I go to an iPhone article. I'm not too happy about MMS coming so late but why are some of you guys making more of a big deal than the iPhone users are? Why don't the Verizon users go to the thread about the Touch Pro 2 and talk about Verizon's success with the phone even before it has even launch. Currently only 1 person has commented there, and I think that's pretty sad. But I guess there won't be that many opportunities to bash Apple about MMS in the future so you guys are just getting out if your systems. No iPhone hater complains about copy and paste (as much) anymore, so I give MMS a month before you guys find something else about the iPhone to complain about. But you guys better think fast because you're running out of things to complain about.

I can't wait to see how this one works out. It'll either be a great success or colossal failure. For my friends on AT&T I hope for success, but for my personal entertainment, I hope for a fail.

Maybe they can bring "America's fastest 3G network" to more than 5% of it's coverage area. I love hearing people where I live brag "I just got an iPhone 3GS", and then telling them "congratulations; there's no 3G services within 75 miles."

Do you live in the Democratic Republic of Congo?

But it is possible that in the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo there is better cell reception than ATT offers in Chicago and NYC

Have you looked at ATTs 3G coverage map...there are plenty of places in America that you need to drive a long distance to have 3G coverage.

No, rural Louisiana. There are places here where AT&T is the only coverage available, but there's no chance of ever getting broad 3G coverage around here. Which is sad, considering AT&T is supposed to be "dominant" in the southeast/gulf coast region.

On the contrary, I live in a moderate size town of about 20,000. If your not in a fairly large city, the chances of getting 3G services are slim to none. At&t's 3G coverage area, in terms of size, is not very large at all. We get Verizon 3G here, but no At&t. It's not like it makes a difference anyway, since their 3G network really isn't all that great from my experiences.
