Install Base Structure Update from Cydia

  1. Open the Cydia.
  2. Go to changes tab and hit refresh.
  3. There you’ll find an update available for Base Structure.
  4. Install it.
  5. Reset Network Settings: Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings


Restore Firmware and re-Jailbreak

  1. Restore the firmware
  2. then re-jailbreak iPhone with JailbreakMe 2.0
    NOTE: re-jailbreaking without restoring firmware does NOT fix the FaceTime/MMS.

Facetime over 3G! All you need is My3G ver. 4.1.4! They updated today with Facetime support. If you cannot find it in Cydia, use Rock ( RockApp can be downloaded in Cydia). Make sure ModMyi is listed as a source. It’s cheap to have and unlocks HD Youtube and the download limit on the appstore is lifted! Worth it!

I have an iPhone 3Gs and I’ve run the jailbreak and unlocked with Ultrasnow to use on T-mobile, everything works except the MMS. I have checked the setting and there is now switch to allow it. And Ive looked in Cydia changes for update and they haven’t helped. Iv’e done all this above with no changes.

What can I do to get it working?

I have a IPhone 3gs jailbroken and unlocked on 4.0.1, is there any way I can get my mms work properly? Cause it won’t work for me at all, i have tried everything.

I just jailbroke a few days ago (after the writing of this post and the described solution), and my MMS doesn’t work properly.
