images-51For one reason or another AT&T really does not want iPhones to have MMS on their network until the end of summer.  They have been trying pretty darn hard to stop this, even disabling it on some of the people who enabled it!  However if we can change the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) in AT&T’s database it should not get disabled, as AT&T will not know you have an iPhone.

This task will involve Social Engineering; to edit their database, while this is not illegal AT&T may complain to you.
