Even the MMS features is enable, but it doesn’t work with iphone 2.0, when you enter MMS APN setting inside Network > Cellular Data Network Settings, when you exit the setting is gone, i mean MMS APN.

Hopefully enable tethering can solve this problem

You have to enter the Cellular Data APN and MMS APN as the the same thing at the same time then when you close and re-open it stays.

‘cos it doesn’t work with firmware 3.1.2 – it freezes your phone! SwirlyMMS2 doesn’t work with that version of the firmware either, so save your $12.
