Ubergizmo reported, "a lot of iPhone users are reporting that the service is not available for them. AT&T has confirmed this issue, and it seems that there are MMS latency issues across all states."
The glitches with iPhone MMS update appear to be battery drain from using MMS, delayed messages (up to two-day), the operating system has to be updated to OS 3.1 first, and problems with video clarity/audio.
We scanned Twitter for iPhone MMS update Tweets and we found many mixed MMS mesages:
- IPhone owners with hacked or jailbroken iPhones have had problems with MMS. They loose their tethering hack because they have to upgrade to 3.1 that jailbreaks the jailbreak.
- An MMS sent to a boyfriend's Android phone took 48 hours to get to him.
- Expletives: I'm excited!, Awesome. Sooooo nice!!!, WhoHOO! YAY?
- "I got my first MMS today. It took 2 years to ever get a single one (on iPhone).
- MMS drains battery. Battery life took a nose dive. Update is killing my battery.
- "still can't get my iphone to send mms messages... way to suck, AT&T..."
- You have to reboot your iPhone to get MMS to get it to work properly.
- Video received by friend didn't have audio (multiple reports.)
- Still no MMS for some.
- YFrog will Tweet MMS.
- Works flawlessly in Las Vegas.
