iPhone MMS Dropping Early For Some [Broadband Reports]
When the Apple iPhone 3G S was announced back on June 8th of this year, one of the new features it was set to have was multimedia messaging service (MMS). MMS is basically a way of sending pictures, video and audio via text messaging, a technology that was invented in the 1980's. As it turned out, AT&T, the exclusive provider for the iPhone in this country, wasn't ready to roll out MMS at the time of the iPhone launch so AT&T iPhone users were told that they would just have to wait until AT&T upgraded its network to handle the MMS messaging service.
It's taken over three months since the launch, and it appears that AT&T is slowly making good on its promise to have MMS service. Broadband Reports indicates that some iPhone users now have MMS capability on AT&T's network, ahead of an AT&T announced availability date of September 25th, even though this "early" availability is really three months late.
AT&T's tardiness on the MMS feature availability has spawned a number of lawsuits from disappointed users led to believe that they would have MMS capability when they bought their iPhone.
