AT&T: iPhone to Get MMS September 25
Today AT&T announced that it will offer iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users the ability to send and receive MMS messages starting on September25. iPhone users will be able to access the service via an iPhone software update that will be made available on that day. The software update will be distributed through iTunes. AT&T said the service has taken months to prepare because it wanted to offer the "best possible experience." It has taken steps to strengthen its MMS delivery systems to handle what it believes will be a "record volume of MMS traffic."
What happened to not having to upgrade hardware to get OS updates?
It's upsetting that I'll have to pay an extra $10 per month AND shell out $100-200 to get MMS when new hardware doesn't seem to be necessary.
Darn thing still won't fully multi-task either.
I blame Apple for this
So you were only off by:
So get yourself some help.
Full Statement from AT&T
The service will be enabled with a software update on the launch date. Customers can obtain the update from iTunes, just like all other iPhone updates.

The 850 is going to put less strain on a particular frequency and should improve signal strength, however.
