Ladies and gentleman, after months of waiting and bitching, AT&T is finally bringing MMS to the iPhone masses. According to a press release, we should get MMS on September 25.

We know many of our iPhone customers are eager for an update on our rollout schedule for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). We’ve been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches – and that launch date is: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day.

Ok, so I was half right in my prediction. I said MMS would come via a firmware update around September 10. Well, close enough…

Now as you notice MMS will be only available for iPhone 3G and 3GS. If you have an iPhone 2G, then screw you! No seriously, if you have a first generation iPhone, you can still use this hack to enable MMS.

As for tethering… What tethering? AT&T didn’t deem it necessary to make any announcement and I guess it still plans to make this feature available “at a later date” which may be anytime between now and the end of times…

How do you feel about that?

    Don’t update when it’s available. Let’s wait to see what the Dev Team has to say about thus new firmware. I’ll keep you guys posted.

    As usual I’m currently happy with my 3.0.1 Jailbroken iPhone…… I have MMS, Tethering enabled….. so unless APPLE pulls out some new features I won’t be updating anytime soon….
    But AT&T TOO little TOO LATE ! ! ! ! I hope next year APPLE does the smart thing and ends the exclusivity with carriers worldwide….. I can only image how it will benefit us all…. Lower Prices, cheaper plans…….. Come on APPLE ! get your heads out of your hairy asses !
