iPhone MMS Update: Picture Messaging on iPhone 3.1 via AT&T is Go
The wait is finally over! MMS feature has finally landed officially for AT&T iPhone users – a feature which almost every other phone has had it for years.
MMS for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS comes in the form of a small (a few kilobytes) carrier update (.ipcc) file which makes the update painless as you don’t have to download a whole new firmware update just to gain this functionality. The carrier update will popup as soon as you connect your iPhone to iTunes. Upgrading to iPhone firmware 3.1 is a must to get MMS functionality.
Start iTunes and hit “Update”, you will be prompted to update your carrier file.
Restart your iPhone after carrier file has been installed.
Now go to settings, then scroll down to Messages and turn on MMS!
Those of you who followed my guide/tutorial here to get MMS early can safely update to the official carrier update (.ipcc) file through iTunes.
