Nevertheless, if you and/or your friends choose to use outdated nonconforming technology, I found some info you might find useful. I've used the Verizon one, but haven't tested the others.

Now, can we all get on with our email-driven lives?

Your post spectacularly fails to notice that SMS messaging is even older and more 'outdated' than MMS. Somehow it's OK for people to want to do the former, but not the latter?

Let's strip the iPhone of all 'outdated' technology. SMS and MMS are soooo old, so lets get shot of them first. Calling people using anything other than voip is positively archaic, so let's get rid of the telephony. The iPhone camera was 2 years out of date when the device was released in 2007, so now it's well over the hill, so remove it.

So what do we have left after we've got rid of all the 'outdated' technology? A pretty hollow device.

Moral of the story - old/outdated technology can still be relevant even in this date and age.

Obviously Apple has their own opinion of what is 'standard' (I saw the backlash over the recent Mac Book changes). The price we pay to play in Apples playground I suppose.

From a consumer point of view this has been my first 'Apple' experience and it's leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Why should I give them any money in the future for a product? For everyone that says 'just don't buy it' or 'go buy something else'... that attitude has been keeping Apples market share in the toilet... you do realize that selling products is what keeps these companies alive right?

I agree. From a consumer standpoint, what really troubles me isn't even that Apple has not given us MMS - it's that they haven't even responded to all the inquiries about it. Would it be that difficult to release a statement saying "we're not going to support it and here is why." Why is Apple just ignoring us on this? I can come up with a conspiracy theory involving AT&T but I won't go there.

It leaves a bad taste in my mouth too. It makes me wonder what else they would ignore us on.

I will, because it's probably a ludicrous conspiracy theory. AT&T would would make more money if there was MMS on the iPhone, the same way that SMS isn't included in the basic plan. Why wouldn't AT&T want that?

I personally wouldn't miss SMS if it were axed because it's more money on my bill when someone spams me with it and I try to make sure people I know don't send me any because of the extra cost.

I don't want to deny other people the ability to communicate with each other the way they want to. I don't think that means that I should have to pay such a high price for a mode of communication that I'd rather not get. I just wish I could turn off SMS service for my own account. I can choose not to accept a call and it doesn't count against my total time, but an SMS is served to me and charged against my account whether I wanted it or not.

what happened to my IPOD TOUCH 2nd gen after update v2.2 :

- dun experience ALAC anymore (+)

- app tend to close by itself. i dun know its because of my low memory (200mb free memory left), but it happened more often than b4 (-)

- i dun know if anyone realize it. but the home screen dock is changed to the older mac ver. i want to know if theres a way to make it back again like the Mac OS X Leopard dock (previously used in my ipod touch 2nd gen) (-)
