I can't believe this is actually headline-worthy news and is getting so much attention. With that said, let me join my blogosphere brethren by also sharing the big news: AT&T said today that it will update the iPhone MMS feature on September 25.

There ya go, that's the news. Consider it officially shared.

For those living under a rock for the past several years, MMS is the messaging system that allows users to send and receive photos and videos on their phones. Pretty much every phone out there has had MMS capabilities for what seems like forever. I mean, even my mom has the ability to send and receive MMS messages over her nothing-fancy, reliable little LG flip phone.

Apple said earlier this year that it would finally enable MMS on the iPhone - another big headline moment - but then came the little asterisk about it not being available on AT&T until late summer. And as it turns out, it will be three days into the fall when AT&T finally flips the switch.

I was going to paste the text of the AT&T news release in this post but it was filled with so much PR spin, that I'll instead just offer a link - in case you really find yourself needing to know that AT&T has been been working hard to "ensure an excellent (MMS) experience from Day One."

  • Meh.

    I never understood the outrage over the lack of MMS on the iPhone in
    the first place, and as we've already learned AT&Ts network is handling
    the current traffic less than spectacularly.

  • Well it's about damn time.

    Finally. Why the hell did it take them so long?

  • It's payback time, AT&T...

    I don't usually send many picture/video messages, but I'm gonna blow up the network with MMS messages as soon as it's enabled for the iPhone. I'm paying $30 per month for data and an additional $20 per month for messaging, so AT&T best expect that I'm gonna use the hell out of it when it arrives.

  • LOL

    Leave it to AT&T and Apple to make an old feature, common in most phones, sound something new and amazing. YEA big announcement! *eye roll*

  • watch the network slow to a crawl

    The network is having trouble already, now by introducing MMS spam from iCrap users, we're going to see an influx of downtime and slowness to due AT&T's lack in infrastructure.
