    Could someone enlighten me as to why AT&T is going to keep the iPhone from using MMS? It can't be a technology barrier of some sort.

    They're also keeping it from tethering. I think AT&T knows their network isn't up to snuff for all the iPhone users suddenly blasting forth with MMS and tethering. Hopefully they're going to use the time to upgrade their network so that when they do turn MMS and tethering on, my BlackBerry doesn't go belly-up.

    I've been receiving text messages from AT&T stating new towers being put up in my area...

    They most definitely will use the time to buff up their network.

    They'd be stupid not to.

    I'm surprised no Data plan changes were announced either.

    According to BGR, the reasoning behind this delay is because AT&T has to manually remove the "opt-out of multimedia messaging" from each account.

    I can see that being a huge tasks, but a script could be written to auto do it.. but knowing AT&T, they'd just pay some retail reps to sit there on slow days and remove them manually.. UGH!

    Oh, puh-leeze. (Not you, Sniffs, AT&T. That sounds like a hand-job if I've ever heard one. I mean, really, that's why mankind created computer programmers and database administrators.)
