US iPhone MMS Rollout a Success (at least in the Midwest)

mms screensA couple days ago, MMS finally arrived for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in the United States. Here in Nebraska, the rollout from AT&T seemed to be a success. Granted, we don’t have near the amount of iPhones on the AT&T network here in the land of corn as San Francisco does.

My experience occurred around 12:15 pm on Friday, when I saw Twitter light up with reports that the carrier profile update was available in iTunes. So I slapped my iPhone into my Griffin Simplifi (if you don’t have on these on your desk, you seriously should get one), and clicked Check for Update in iTunes. The new profile installed in about 2 seconds.

Then I hopped into the Messages app on my iPhone, and was baffled as to why I didn’t have the little camera icon. Silly me, I had to reboot the phone. After doing so, I now had MMS on my iPhone.

Naturally, I snapped a picture of my son and sent it to his Grandma. She claims she didn’t get it, but said she’s also been mass deleting texts from friends and family after a surgery she underwent recently. However, I did shortly receive a picture from a friend’s Blackberry, along with the nice little note, “Let me introduce you to a new technology called Picture Messaging. LAUGH.” Har har.

Anyway, that’s my experience. Care to share yours in the poll and/or comments?
