As you would know that Apple doesn’t released MMS feature for iPhone 2G. But jailbreak community can still enjoy it. You still have a chance to enable MMS on iPhone 2G OS 3.1.2 using Native MMS iPhone 2G from Cydia.

You need to jailbreak iPhone first in order to get Cydia and then install Native MMS iPhone 2G. Use the custom firmware or the iPhone guide to jailbreak your iPhone:

Enable MMS on iPhone 2G OS 3.1.2

Use this guide at your own risk. You may also end up restoring your iPhone.

Assuming that you have jailbroken your iPhone and have got Cydia on your SpringBoard.

Open the Cydia, and install iFoneGuide repository. In  order to do this go to Search Tab and search for iFoneGuide. Tap on it and Install it.

I have add the repo, installed the Native MMS for iPhone 2G, rebooted the phone and nothing happens. I do not see the parameters to fill in in the network settings neither I can see the camera button in Messages App.
Any idea?

Something is missing! Help please!

I think you need to do following steps to activate you mms:

Add this Repo: http://www.sinfuliphonerepo.com

Install “Enable MMS for 2G & 3.1.2”

After instalation, your Iphone will reboot.

vanspey November 10, 2009, 9:35 pm

Still not working for me! Enable MMS for 2G & 3.1.2 did not install right, and my phone locked up.

techguy November 16, 2009, 8:00 pm

my 2g iphone locked up…I followed every step too!

vanspey November 17, 2009, 1:40 am

I did get mine to install. MMS looked just like on other phones, but the APN? was not filled in. I tried and tried to get it to work, sent e-mail to the folks at Sinfulliphone but not luck. After unlocking my batt life was shit less then 2 hours using it. Batt would go down in standby. I then relocked it till I hear from someone.

arikomagic November 19, 2009, 5:18 pm

Same here. doesn’t work
I have a iphone 2g 3.1.2. The MMS settings I input arent’ saving.
DAMN! I’m starting to hate apple, this is bullshit!

arikomagic November 19, 2009, 5:20 pm

If you type the same APN setting on MMS as on cellular data, it will save. Just a constatation, did help me receive MMS but not send.

romario December 30, 2009, 6:15 pm

Just try to reset the setting , and work.
Can send MMS.

Setting > General > Cellular Data Netwrok

Tap on Reset Setting

The MMS save, but cellular data become default

Does anyone know the settings to use for AT&T?

Scott January 20, 2010, 3:51 am

I’m pretty sure att knows when you are using the 2g iphone. As soon as it is recognized, MMS is immediately blocked. I know this because when i swapped the sim from my nokia, I was able to get 1 MMS message to go through. However, after that nothing worked again.

neil January 23, 2010, 10:13 am

got it to work..but i cannot receive..any ideas????

BowBowX January 25, 2010, 12:29 pm

Followed the instructed and installed everything. Camera icon and MMS setting showed OK. However, the MMS APN will NOT save unless it matchs to the internet APN. I’m currently using T-mobil; the internet APN is: internet2.voicestream.com

MMS setting I have:

MMS apn: wap.voicestream.com
MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080

if i set the the apn to wap.voicestream.com, MMS works fine, but then internet will not work since it needs to be set to internet2.voicestream.com. If APN are set to different value, the MMS APN will simply disappear.

Any fix yet?

MMS apn: internet2.voicestream.com
MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms

Set APN and MMS APN to internet2.voicestream.com

jeff March 13, 2010, 1:30 pm

has anyone tried this on 3.1.3 yet? I had to upgrade to it so i could get wifi to finally work again. everything works fine on 3.1.3 except native mms?

j2innet March 14, 2010, 1:35 am

MMS Native for 2G is not working. BS.

TRY MMS Enable for 2G 3.1.2 seems ok.

Good luck.

tman March 31, 2010, 5:31 am

MMS apn: internet2.voicestream.com
MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080

Set APN and MMS APN to internet2.voicestream.com

blahblah.2 May 9, 2010, 3:09 am

i get teh camera icon in the left corner and i have both APNs set to internet2.voicestream.com, but my pictures won’t send.
any solution?

Synapses11 July 8, 2010, 3:47 am

Worked like a charm first time around. I put in the MMS APN as the same as the APN to internet2 and both my data and now MMS works fine for receiving and sending. I’ve been going crazy about this. Thanks so much. 2G Iphone on 3.1.2 Tmobile with Tzones data

shhweet August 28, 2010, 6:19 am

hi synapses – what are your settings? im still trying to get mine to work. TIA!

ivopivo November 19, 2010, 6:27 am

I have a 2G 3.1.2 and nothing I’ve tried works. Synapses would you mind sharing all the settings you have for both the data and mms? For me, internet2 works for the 9.99 plan and I have full internet, but can’t send or receive messages. Thanks.

moviefan July 29, 2010, 5:08 am

I installed it exactly per instructions and it loaded fine. Cannot send pic though, as it hangs up about 95% through the sending bar at top. What gives??

vafatara August 7, 2010, 8:56 pm

Hello,
i don’t get a camera icon on my native sms app. Could someone please tell me what could be wrong. i followed exactly the instruction but no sign of the icon. Plus, i also can’t save the APN, password and …
i’ll really appreciate any suggestion.

cool August 16, 2010, 4:21 am

synapses, what are your exact settings? I am using the following settings:

APN: internet2.voicestream.com (for Cell and MMS)
MMSC: mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/ms/wapenc
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.050:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 1048576
MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf

At first I used as MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms, but I was not able to send or receive photos. I changed it to mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/ms/wapenc and I was able to send, but still cannot receive.

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Cool

cool August 17, 2010, 5:40 am

Sorry, I meant:

mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc

moviefan September 1, 2010, 12:07 am

I see Native MMS is back. A couple months ago it wasn’t there. Then in July I downloaded Legacy thru Cydia on my old 2G and set it up that way. Now Legacy is gone but I noticed Native MMS is back! Oh well whatever works! Installed it on my new 3.1.2 2G and it’s working great.

common2403 August 16, 2011, 8:39 am
