iPhone MMS and internet tethering...

This works...there is another thread with similar info, but this is more straightforward. This works for 3G/3Gs with 3.0/3.0.1...not sure about others.


If you have an iPhone 3G/3Gs and want to have MMS texting and internet tethering on it do the following...does not have to be jailbroken.
First, open Command Prompt on your PC from the 'accessories' tab...copy this string there...(you have t...o right click and paste into the CMD line as CTRL V wont work...you also cannot just type it in, it has to be pasted)...

"%ProgramFiles%\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

Then go here and download this file to your desktop...you have to unzip it first.
http://bit.ly/UJiLP

Open iTunes and hold Shift(Option button for Mac) and the click on Update (the update button on your phones tab in iTunes) in itunes. When the popup window opens go to the dropdown box that you can choose your file type (it is set to look for an ipsw file by default). Change it to look for carrier update file .ipcc. Browse to the one you just downloaded (on desktop). click on Open(or double click it). it will update on your iPhone, it wont even go the Sync screen. When it is done, reboot your iphone (hold down power until it cycles off and then turn back on). Go to Messages. You should now have the camera icon by the enter text box and you can send pics via texts. Tethering will also be available in Settings, General, Network...turn it on and you can use your phone as a modem...

Yeah...but you have to upgrade to the 3.1 version which will negate most peoples jailbreak....many dont want to upgrade and this is a way around it.

They can tell if you're using the phone to tether, and knowing att they'll probably charge for it. I'm surprised I haven't been charged ever, actually.

The only way they can tell is by your data usage and even though I have heard of people getting slapped with fee's for it, its very very rare.

I tethered with my old att tilt and now my iphone for quite some time and have never seen any charges. I was/am on data unlimited plans the whole time too so maybe that had something to do with it.

This is the last thing I did to mine. Received a text from AT&T on the 22nd that said MMS will be available...blah blah

I have been trying to send a pic to a friend since jailbreaking, and it finally works.

As I understand it you can jailbreak 3.1 by using the 3.0 firmware. The updates from 3.0 > 3.1 aren't supposed to affect any of the jailbreak files.

When you jailbreak again (after updating to 3.1) and you choose the firmware, you choose 3.0 firmware again and it's supposed to work.

I did this a while back. Pretty much only way to get MMS on your phone. The Benm way only does tethering not MMS. I did a girls phone yesterday and didnt even have to enter ANY setting under MMS for hers to send...

edit to my other pos, I re-read what you wrote, the command prop stuff seems difficult to me.

I followed this. Download the ATT_US.ipcc file in his desription and use 8.2 beta itunes(or 9.0 cuz I think it works too)


THIS WILL work for 3gs phones with 3.0.1 and 3.0. My friend was running 9.0 itunes and this work last night with my phone

You are going to have to check itunes for a carrier update. Should be close to noon before it rolls out for our time zone.

yeah, the carrier update (v5.0) is what put it on mine. I'm jailbroken on the 3.0.1 firmware and it works.

I just updated from 3.0 to 3.1. During that process I got an error when the update was being transferred.

Had to restore and now I have to go re-download all my apps one at a fucking time.

Oh yea, still no MMS.

What exactly is jailbreak, and can someone explain why they would want to jailbreak their phone if the MMS and tethering features are now available, or will be soon? What are the advantages of doing so, and do they really outweigh having the legit software and updates that are supported by the manufacturer?

Jailbreaking your iphone make it to where you can accept 3rd party apps that arent apple approved. It goes way beyond tethering and MMS even though that is what drew alot of us to it.

I use alot of JB apps for everything from changing icons to having wallpaper behind icons to even adding more icons.

I see.

Is there anything else really significant that would make it worthwhile?

The application database is very extensive and most of the time free whereas you have to pay for the apple apps. It lets you customize your iphone much better than you would be able to if you did not JB.

no WHEN they decide to offer tethering it will be 60 a month

if you stay on 3.0 and do not do this apple update you can install the ATT_US.ipcc file and you can enable tethering and MMS without going threw apple.... pm me iff you need help

no you can download the file, its small. unzip it.

Hold shift and hit update, then click the drop down arrow to look for "iphone carrier configuration files ipcc"

Find the unzipped ATT_US.ipcc file and click open It says it need 8.2 beta itunes but it worked on my phone from my firends computer running itunes 9.0

Download Unzip and Shift/Option Update:
MMS/Tethering Carrier Update - http://bit.ly/UJiLP


You work restricts you from downloading stuff to their computers?

its not JUST about MMS and tethering its about possibly NEVER EVER being able to jailbreak and unlock your phone IF YOU WANTED!

3.0 does anything and everything 3.1 does BUT WAY WAY MORE!

You'll have to update at least the carrier file, which is what the first post is about. I don't know if you need to be jailbroken to do it or not.
