    Got this from member SHUTTER over at the iphone blog ! thanks for your work !

    1) install GM seed on iPhone.
    2) restore from back up or set up as new
    3) uninstall official 8.2
    4) uninstall apple mobile device support
    5) install iTunes 8.2 tha shipped with beta 4
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    6) move your iTunes library file (itunes.itl) to a different location if it was updated with the official 8.2
    7) open iTunes
    8) update your ipcc file with this one
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    Update the same way you do the ipsw just change the file type to ipcc and navigate to the file
    9) restart your phone and the mms options should be there
    10) uninstall beta 4 iTunes 8.2
    11) uninstall apple mobile device support
    12) reinstall official 8.2 and replace the empty iTunes.itl with the one you moved. You should be good to go, provided your account is provisioned for mms.

    SPECIAL THANKS TO : Jerry.b. For helping me do this on my phone !

    After following the Above steps , you need to do the bottoms steps !

    Go to settings>general>cellular data network

    Great job SOOKS! Thanks for the write up! hopefully it will help while AT&T drags their feet lol!

    For any noobs (like me) if you don't know what GM seed is, it is the golden master seed meaning final code lol. Just load iPhone OS 3.0 on your iPhone and follow the steps

    You can't be provisioned for MMS and have Visual Voicemail working at the same time, so it's a tradeoff.

    Some people are doing the workaround for MMS by changing their IMEI to a device that does allow MMS provisioning.. when you do this, you lose visual voicemail.

    I believe you can resolve that by going to settings -> general -> network -> cellular data and change the voicemail apn from wap.cingular to acds.voicemail

    Yeah just like the Storm is just supposed to work without a leaked OS. Or how about my screen is supposed to just click EVERYWHERE consistently without putting a business card behind the battery door. I thought when I rotated to landscape the screen was suppose do the same, but ummm it didn't.... maybe after a few seconds and it drags to the orientation I want. What about wifi? You keeping talking about how the iPhone doesn't have MMS..... no kidding. But what about your storm without wifi. I'd rather have wifi than mms. Funny thing is, is a short while, i'll have both and you'll still be missing one and still have a crappy device.

    Do you have the option to add the carrier data to the iP under network? If you do make sure they are ented correctly. Also make sure mms is provisioned and check to see if you can receive mms bit not send. Let us know what isn't working and we'll get it going.

    honestly i agree. Im sick of hearing iphone bashing for not having MMS for a month or 2 still. Especially from people who own phones missing features or were buggy as he**- Storm (buggy all over), Pre (missing video record and other features), etc. And name one smartphone which can do it all without some hacking? The Storm needs a custom OS leak to function correctly, so its pretty ironic for someone with a Storm bringing up having to hack.

    EVERY phone has its flaws, at least Apple is one company dedicated to getting these things done.

    if your getting legacy messages saying you have recieved a multimedia message with a user name and password then I doubt this will work. This is for the people where at&t doesn't have mms disabled or those that swap there sims from phone to phone throwing off the system for which one is in use. Unfortunately until at&t flips that switch you will likely lose mms even if it works when they do there sweeps. Ironically if all they have to do is renable it, why disable it if its working

    I didn't use MMS on any of my other phones so I don't miss it now. But I do need my wifi. So much for that when it comes to the crappy storm. Any storm user has no right to talk about not having MMS when they have a laggy OS, faulty hardware, no wifi and overall poor device. Who would trade all that for MMS?
