Bought a unlocked phone from Apple direct $649 didnt know about all the issues mms, mms pic, edge speed etc...
Got #@#@ed so started to take it back, but the phone is pretty cool and the camara is so much better then 5m on MyTouch.
So started working on it, Apple people dummed up and said its your issues trying to use it on Tmo.
Tmo for once was pretty cool the rep sent me an email on jailbreak..now I am not a geek but it was simple the download does everything for you!
Then the Tmo rep sent me te fix in cydia to get mms is working and now phone is working good.
Yes its slow on the edge but its do able, I wifi apps and when I need I can hot spot to our My Touch.
Here is the fix:
Then once jailbroke:
Add a new source and package to the Cydia application on the iPhone, by following these steps:

is this fix for iOS 5 or 4.x or what?
Glad you got yours working well. I also have a MyTouch and picked up an unlocked iPhone. I used the iBackupBot method to modify the .plist file that has been referenced on this site and others. It worked as well without needing to jailbreak. I will use this next 4 weeks (return period for the iphone) to determine if I can deal with 2G when not in wifi coverage areas. So far it has not been bad.
Good luck with the phone.
did it give you group messaging options? cause i dont have that option in my messaging place and i want it
what exactly was the fix?
The fix I used is described here: http://leimobile.com/tag/iphone-mms-fix/
It is listed on this site somewhere as well. Use Google to search for ibackupbot and follow this guide.
Mine works fine now.
i dont have a problem with mms i was just trying to get GROUP MESSAGING
do you know how i can get that option
I dont have a issue with group mms or text just added it to the To: and send.
But I did mess up today and had to restore which updated to 5.1 so that blew the jailbreak...everything still works just lost all the Cydia apps and features!
Theres a way to fix the MMS issues without jailbreaking (which would only apply to you if you're using a factory unlocked iPhone)I dont remember the link to the post but I'll try and find it in a sec....
Here it is: http://support.t-mobile.com/thread/17918?tstart=0
i dont have a problem with MMS!! i can send and recieve pics just fine
i just said i wanted the tab that says "group messaging"
i dont have that option in my messages
apparently cause im on tmobile
i was wondering if i could get that option with out any third party apps...
i dont understand how anyone can go from 4g to 2g.
Not sure why you "need a tab" just press the plus sign and add as many recipients as you would like.
because the group messaging feauture lets you see recipients
like when i recieve a group picture message i can see who it was all sent to, regular mms wont show you
is there any way i can get the group messaging option if i call tmobile or something? i want this feauture,
Please internet is so subject…
We have no issues with watching HBO Go on our iPhones and Slacker works with no issues!
Came from Driod world and sorry phones are ok but there is a new one every other month and now Droid Fan Boys have talked themselves in to bigger is better mentality.
You need a screen that big what not tablet?
We travel all over the country each month and some of the biggest city’s have the worse and spotty 4 g service anyway!,.
Manhattan, LA, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago…
Besides Tmo hears the roar they working on the upgrade for the iPhone…on the network.
@coleworldbby I was actually replying to the original post, so sorry about the confusion.
