Yes,
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My picture message is still not working and for some reason a few people can't receive my texts or they do but I'm not getting their responses
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
Your text should work as normal, you will have to jailbreak the iphone to use the picture messaging.

If you want MMS to work, you will need to first jailbreak your iPhone. Jailbreak is currently available for all iPhones on iOS 5.0.1 and below. Please search on the Internet for how to jailbreak your iPhone and the iOS version, there are many guides available. An excellent site with walkthroughs containing pictures, text and video is located here: http://www.iclarified.com/jailbreak. Also can try here http://www.redmondpie.com/category/iPhone.

  • 1. On your jailbroken iPhone, launch Cydia
  • 2. Search for TetherME, then purchase it for $5 and install it
  • 3. After TetherMe is installed, exit Cydia and go to your home screen
  • 4. Open Settings > General > Network, then click on "Cellular Data Network"
  • Note: If you get TetherME then you don't need to go to unlockit website as TetherME allows you to set all the settings.

This is what your settings should look like. Fill in the fields on your iPhone as follows:

Cellular Data
APN: att.mvno
Username:
Password:
MMS
APN: att.mvno
Username:
Password:
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33:80
