Even though some people have already had their MMS capabilities
activated by AT&T, leading to speculation the carrier would
slow-roll out the feature to avoid network strain, the Friday,
September 25 date is holding firm.
That the iPhone uses more bandwidth should seem obvious to most iPhone users; we
chose this phone because it makes Internet connectivity so easy. The real question is, how is, which of your most-used apps are responsible for the clogging of AT&T's network.
We discuss last week's iPod event and what Apple released and what they didn't. We still pine for an updated Apple TV, and MMS for the iPhone begins a slow rollout. Let's just say we're not surprised to be excluded from the lucky few to be picked to have MMS early.
While it's only two years too late, AT&T has decided that for a
select few users they would add MMS functionality two weeks early.
While the official date is set for September 25th, it's possible the
carrier might attempt a slow-roll-out of the new service just to let
steam off ahead of the launch.
