MMS Coming to iPhone 3G, 3GS - 9/25/09

It's official! is reporting that AT&T will be bringing MMS - multimedia messaging - to the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS on September 25, 2009.

"It was important to give our customers a positive experience from day one," AT&T said. "We support more iPhone customers than any other carrier in the world so we took the time necessary to make sure our network is ready to handle what we expect will be a record volume of MMS traffic. We truly appreciate our customers’ patience and hope they'll understand our desire to get it right from the start."

According to, the new feature will come in the form of iTunes downloadable update for 3G and 3GS owners. Unfortunately, owners of the original iPhone will be left out in the cold as they will be locked out from getting the update. I guess that is a subtle hint from AT&T that you need to upgrade.

I guess technically they have until September 21 to make that 'late summer' date... September 22 is the first day of Autumn this year.

Ya, a launch on 9/25 is technically "the fall" but I don't think many iPhone 3G and 3GS owners will care as long as they *finally* get MMS on their phones.

No update for me either so far, and I even have it hooked up to iTunes as I type this checking for updates.

One of my iPhone toting buddies has confirmed that he has downloaded the update hours ago. You'l want to check for the update in iTunes now.
