AT&T to Bring MMS to iPhone on the 25th

Posted by at 2:07 pm on September 3, 2009

AT&T this afternoon gave a firm date for when it would add MMS support to iPhones on its network. The carrier will switch on the feature as of September 25th through a software upgrade for iPhone 3G and 3GS owners. Adding the feature will let those running iPhone 3.0 or later firmware send photos and videos and contact cards to any MMS-aware phone.

Original iPhones aren’t eligible for the upgrade.   MMS is a common feature available on many low-end phones and usually isn’t regulated by hardware as long as a phone can display images. So why the original iPhone cannot do MMS is a mystery.

Data tethering, which shares a phone’s 3G connection over Bluetooth or USB, does not appear to be supported by AT&T.   Other carriers around world support tethering with the new iPhones already.
