Update: AT&T 'pleased' with iPhone MMS rollout three days in

http://www.computerworld.com

Nearly three days after activating its multimedia messaging service (MMS) to iPhone 3G and 3GS, AT&T Inc. said today it was "pleased with the rollout" despite continuing user complaints on its own Facebook page.

Many iPhone users complained late into the weekend and early today about the service not working or taking too long to send a photo. The service was activated mid-day Friday nationwide, after AT&T took heat from customers in June about not having it available when the iPhone 3GS launched. The complaints began rolling in later Friday but there were also some praise for the rollout mixed in.

"We are pleased with the rollout of MMS" to iPhone, said spokesman Mark Siegel in an e-mail sent about 9 a.m, reiterating comments he made when the service launched Friday. This morning, Eric Mooneyham endorsed that view with his Facebook comment, "Everything went fine for me. Just sent a video to someone on Verizon, and it went through just like that! Thx AT&T."

AT&T Rolls Out iPhone MMS, Tells FCC Google Voice Breaks the Law

http://www.dailytech.com

The excitement of the iPhone finally getting multimedia messaging, is overshadowed by the Google Voice drama

After a long wait AT&T finally rolled out support for the multimedia messaging service (MMS) protocol. This means that iPhones can at last send pictures, video, and audio recordings like users of other smartphones.

IPhones have actually had MMS support built in since June when the iPhone OS v3.0 was released. AT&T, however, kept the functionality disabled for fear it would overload and break its network. Meanwhile, AT&T upgraded much of its network and built extra capacity to handle the service.

On September 22, early last week, it sent a free SMS text message to inform its customers that it would be rolling out the update on Friday. The message read, "AT&T Free Msg: Picture & video messaging (MMS) will be available for iPhone on 9/25. While we prepare your account for MMS capability, the current 'view my message' experience will be turned off but your ability to send and receive text messages will not be affected."

iPhone MMS update makes AT&T happy. The users? Not so much.

http://features.csmonitor.com

Despite a deluge of complaints – some of them posted right here on this blog – AT&T says it is happy with the roll-out of the long-awaited MMS update for the Apple iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S. On Friday, the update was released to iPhone owners across the country, temporarily putting serious strain on the network.

Throughout the day, users experienced various problems with the picture-messaging service: Many couldn’t send or receive MMS text messages at all. Some reported that it was taking up to 20 minutes to send each message. Other frustrated users got halfway through dispatching a text, only to be greeted with an error message.

“Up and running in Atlanta,” one of our readers wrote early on Friday afternoon. “But when [the MMS service] updated it bricked my phone for a bit. Had to do a hard reset just to start it back running. VERY slow. Sometimes fails to send but guess it is from all the traffic.” Others were more succinct: “Updates phone. Tried to send a message. Failed,” reported a reader in Las Vegas.

iPhone MMS working for many; two weeks early

http://blogs.zdnet.com

Despite its statement that MMS would be available to iPhone customers beginning on September 25, AT&T began a gradual rollout of the coveted feature in select markets starting on Friday.

According to a report on The Consumerist “seemingly random iPhone users, from Manhattan to Idaho” have reported that MMS suddenly began working on their iPhones beginning on September 11. There’s a nine-page (and growing) thread at Howard Forums starting by iPhone users whose MMS is now working.

Reports vary, but the common thread is iPhone OS 3.1 and AT&T carrier bundle v5.0 or 5.1 for MMS to work. You can check your carrier bundle version by tapping Settings > General > About > Carrier.

Mediaite surmises that the surge of MMS activations is due to “AT&T working through the process of removing the opt-out codes that have blocked MMS from working on iPhone accounts since the 3.0 release.”

I reported here that AT&T began testing MMS in Washington around August 3.

AT&T Launches iPhone MMS September 25

http://gizmodo.com

Sweet Jesus, AT&T just told us that MMS for iPhone launches September 25. Which is emphatically not summer. It'll be coming via software update for iPhone 3G and 3GS (remember, old iPhones are getting left out).

AT&T admits they're late, saying "it was important to give our customers a positive experience from day one" so they needed the extra to "to make sure our network is ready to handle what we expect will be a record volume of MMS traffic." Which I think means if MMS doesn't work, everybody can ream the shit out of them for it. At least it's free.

The wait for tethering continues though, with "no set date." They simply "expect to offer it in the future." Again, 'cause the network isn't ready: "This function could exponentially increase traffic on the network, and we need to ensure that some of our current upgrades are in place before we can deliver the expanded functionality with the excellent performance that customers expect."

Dear AT&T: Summer’s Over, Where’s our MMS and Tethering?

http://www.theiphoneblog.com

The minute our iPhone calendars turned from August 31 to September 1, TiPb’s email box started getting many colorful variations of “Summer is over, where’s our [redacted redacted redacted... redacted!] MMS and tethering!

While Apple showed off the front-end for MMS and tethering back in March, released it along with iPhone 3.0 in June, and most of the rest of the world has been enjoying it ever since, AT&T is a notable, and increasingly infuriating exception. Late summer (and when is that exactly?), and that it will be no extra charge, is all they’ve said. And whether you personally would use MMS or not, right now you don’t even have that choice.

We’ve heard all the excuses, from AT&T’s network can barely handle the iPhone as-is, and MMS and especially tethering would bring it, crashing and burning, to its knees, to a rumor that AT&T had to manually turn on MMS for every single iPhone account on their system. We’ve also heard it may be announced as part of Apple’s September 9th event. That would be very late summer indeed.
