Simple Mobile MMS Update

Ok the repo actually works now with these new packages, but Cydia will continue to say you have a Package Update, just ignore it until we find an actual solution for MMS, then I will post instructions and remove the other packages.

Ok for those of you on Simple Mobile who have been having MMS issues we have 4 new packages that may help. Install only one at a time, reboot, make sure your APNs say “simple”, and try to receive pics. If that doesn’t work uninstall the package, reboot, then do the process over again.

Customer Support says the iPhone isn’t capable of receiving picture messages which is utter nonsense since the only thing you can’t do is FaceTime on GPRS 😛

An answer to this MMS issue is somewhere and since none of us here at LEIMobile have Simple Mobile it’s hard for us to test so email me your results as you try each package so we can find the right settings.

Good Luck All

    ok seems the fix didn’t work as well as thought …i just tried another solution and this one seems to work but only for few people I have tried to txt pic..one erro message was sent to me “no subject The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction” here is what i did to get it some what working with sending pics
    as mentioned this is for iOS 4.1 I’m running 4.2 iPhone 3G

    add these sources
    “http://cydia.pushfix.info”
    “http://iphonedelivery.advinux.fr/cydia”
    Install iphonedelivery from “http://iphonedelivery.advinux.fr/cydia” source

    install the T-Mobile US MMS Fix from “http://cydia.pushfix.info”

    Then i rebooted when prompted by Cydia

    Now go to setting/general/network/cellular data network/

    make sure the settings are as follows: (mine were already filled in, i just had to add “smpl.” to the beginning of the MMSC address, if the settings are not automatically filled in u may want to reinstall the t mobile fix, something prob went wrong with the install)

    APN: simple

    update for simpleMobile users only to get MMS working sending txt pics iPhone 2G,3G.4G

    important download this plist file and remove “simple” from it drag it into Preferences chose to replace file…then add the info below into settings(Cellular data network)

    http://iphone2.googlecode.com/files/SIMPLE%20com.apple.mms_override.plist

    You will need to place the override plist for Simple Mobile in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences com.apple.mms_override.plist Make sure you REMOVE SIMPLE from the file name.  So save the file as com.apple.mms_override.plist

    add this to your settings General,Network cellular Data Network:
    SIMPLE MOBILE SETTINGS?Apn: simple
    usename (leave Blank)
    password (leave blank)
    ?Mmsc: http://smpl.mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    ?Mms proxy: 216.155.165.050
    ?Mms max: 1048576
    ?Mms ua prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf
    reboot iphone and enjoy MMS
