AT&T announced on their Facebook page that they will unlock the MMS (Multi-Media SMS) feature for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS this Friday, September 25, 2009.
AT&T had originally promised to release this feature to the public in late summer… It’s a little late, but better late than never.
The feature that I am most excited about is the iPhone Internet tethering release. AT&T still hasn’t released a date; they say that it will be “coming in the future.” This feature used to be hackable, so iPhone users know that AT&T has the ability to support Internet tethering. So why don’t they allow us to access it? My theory is that the current cellular network would not be able to withstand the load that tethering would create.
The only thing that we can do at this point is wait for AT&T to upgrade their hardware.
