AT&T MMS working on 3.1 beta 3, 3.1 release on September 25th?

NOTE This is a clean install, no hacks, on a family text plan. We are located in Miami, Fl so they might be turning it on for difference service areas at different times.

UPDATE Still working several hours later, looks like MMS is good to go!

I got excited back on July 15th when my MMS started working, but was disappointed only 15 mins later when I realized it was just a temporary crossing of the lines (when I sent messages out, it had a different number than my own) while AT&T was testing. Well folks, it’s the real deal this time…MMS is working on 3.1! …and it shows my correct phone number now :)

This brings me to my second point which I brought up in my 3.1 release date guess post:

What about AT&T and MMS you ask? As of beta 3 MMS functionality is still included, but not functioning thanks to AT&T. I don’t think Apple would want to hold up the release of 3.1 for AT&T, but they might since they are the biggest iPhone carrier in the world in terms of the number of iPhones. Apple could always remove the MMS support like they did with the 3.0 beta prior to the release, but something tells me they will want to release 3.1 with MMS support.

I continued this rant with:

Another angle you may have overlooked is AT&T being  ready now and just waiting for Apple to release 3.1 to the public before flipping the switch. AT&T did flip on my 3.1 MMS for about 15 minutes a month ago so I know they are testing it and it’s working. This could explain the vague, late summer release date because Apple probably didn’t have a solid date for 3.1.

So continuing on this line of speculation I think the release date for 3.1 will be September 25!

    Guys the problem is with AT&T trying to get MMS to work in the U.S. before Sept. 25. They are testing and getting there network ready to handle MMS but there is a long road ahead of head aches with it having bugs and glitches it now looks like it will be this winter before they get it right. You can’t receive MMS on your i Phones because AT&T has port 1010 blocked. That’s why i have been using Send MMS and View MMS from MMS.ifind2.com. Check it out its $1.99 to download each app but you will be able to send and receive MMS to other i phones not just other phones.

    sinister 1, why would you want to download this for when AT&T is in the process of activating MMS for all?

    Hi Yackoff,
    I downloaded it a few month back because I had given up hope on AT&T plus I have the 1st i Phone which AT&T skipped. I guess its good for those who have the old i Phone and those that live in regions where it doesn’t work for folks.
