    Everyone should know the iPhone 3.0 supports MMS Messaging, however AT&T is not currently allowing it on their network. To enable it you need:

    • Modified version of ATT_US.ipcc get it here
    • iPhone running firmware 3.0
    • iTunes 8.2
    • AT&T Family Plan (Or another AT&T Phone, non-iphone)

    Enabling IPCC Updates for iTunes 8.2
    MAC OS X

    1. Close iTunes
    2. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal)
    3. Run the command: defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

    Windows 32 Bit
    1. Close iTunes
    2. Go to Start then Run and type CMD
    3. Run this command(If you right-click on the cmd window you can paste): C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    Windows 64 Bit
    1. Close iTunes
    2. Go to Start then Run and type CMD
    3. Run this command(If you right-click on the cmd window you can paste): C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    Copying the ipcc to your iPhone
    1. Open iTunes & plug in your phone
    2. Click on your phone in iTunes(under device settings)
    3. Windows Users: hold shift and click Check for updates. MAC OS X: hold alt and click Check for updates
    4. Select the ipcc you downloaded earlier.

    Congratulations, If you have the iPhone Family Plan you are done. If not follow these steps.
    1. Remove the sim cards from both the iPhone and your non-Apple phone
    2. Place the iPhone sim card into the non-Apple phone
    3. Power on the new phone
    4. Make a phone call or two (your voicemail works)
    5. Log in to your myWireless account at wireless.att.com
    6. It should now say that your device is whatever you put your SIM into. If it doesnt, repeat step 4 a few times.
    7. Go to the Features tab
    8. Select a Messaging Plan, one that isnt an iPhone plan.
    9. Click next and go through all the legal crap
    10. You should now have MMS enabled on your account so
    11. Swap the iPhone sim card back into the iPhone
    12. Reboot the iPhone

    Then u did something wrong. Delete it and download it again and redo the cmd. If it still doesn't work then search for AT&T 5.0 ippc file in google and try it that way
