    imageiPhone Tips & Tricks: Send and receive MMS on your iPhone

    You might already know it but when I read this trick over at iPhone Central @ MacWorld, I thought of sharing it you. One of the features missing in the iPhone is it's lack of integrated support for MMS. If you were used to using MMS in your previous mobile...

      Now I can send MMS messages but what about receiving them? Does anyone know the POP3 information for doing so?

      I have tried numerous times to send a picture through email on my iPhone, and it doesn't work. The receiving phone (a Motorola Razr), gets the text and the subject of the message but no picture. This is very aggravating, as I send a lot of pictures and it's not working!!!

      Why do people keep posting these useless "hints" EMAIL is NOT MMS.

      This works great, but one downfall is that it doesn't count as "in network" messaging for your friends when they send you picture messages. Pretty lame Apple/AT&T

      I still cannot send or recieve pictures!!! I keep getting the message that the connection to outgoing server "" failed? What does that mean and how do I fix it? I am amazed that with all the technolgy this phone has, that it can't simply send or get pics????

      I have a much better idea. If you guys have Installer, install the application "Swirl MMS" you can send pics as long as there is Wireless Internet. Just recently i started receiving Picture Messages, however; I have not figured out to which file or folder the pics go to. Thanks to Adel Hallak for this info!

      Emailing totally works for me. I send my boyfriend pics all of the time, he has Verizon and it always works. We still haven't figured out how to get it to work for him sending me pics though.

      to MATT you say your friend recieves the TEXT but not the pic... the address has to be **********

      Hey guys,
      Follow my instructions and thank me you go:

      First you need the Application Swirly MMS- add this from
      Swirly's source - and add version 0.3.2.
      Install the package named "SwirlyMMS from Swirlyspace", ver 0.3.1. Follow the installation instructions (which means you must restart your phone when installation has finsihed)

      Then go to Settings and fill out this info:
      you can find settings for other carriers on other blogs.

      T-Mobile (USA)
      User: empty
      Pass: empty

      A screen will display that you need to install Mobile finder/Mobile Viewer to be able to see pictures. Go ahead and go to installer, all packages, scroll all the way down to Mobile Finder, install it, then go back and install Mobile Viewer.
      Now you are done! Have someone send you an mms. It should show under Swirly MMS. Open it then click fetch. It will download then display this message:

      "all fetched mms-files are stored in/var/mobile/media/mmsfiles"

      Click the menu button. Now you are on your home screen. Scroll to see the icon “Preview” and click it. Click “Open” . you will then have 5 folders displayed:

      1. …
      2. Bin
      3. Lib
      4. Library
      5. Media

      Double click on the folder “…” then click on folder “mobile” then folder “media” then folder “MMSfiles” then BINGO! All your received pictures are there!!! Good Luck… Big Thanks to Adel Hallak.

      Swirly MMS is looking great, but I can't find mobile viewer in installer, how do I get it in there?
      Also, if I put applications in the install 'queue' how do I access the cue when I want to install them?

      FYI- you do not need Mibile Finder or Mobile Viewer if you have the New Swirly...i think most ppl have that now!

    • EricEric Posts: 238
      via Wordpress

      on the new version of swirly do you have to know your carrier's mms settings? also do you have to have an active mms plan with your carrier?

      does anyone have att and atleast now the correct working settings if u do please please let me know for swirly

    • dnodno Posts: 1

      Do not get swirly if you are on AT&T. This trick is using what's called an SMS gateway. Wiki it and you will get all the info you need including a comprehensive list of international carrier gateway addresses. Keep in mind that some carriers have two addresses, one for SMS and one for MMS.

      Sending a text to an email address is as easy as putting in an email address instead of a phone number.

      Hope this helps. Cheers.
