What better way to kick off the week than with two questionably safe iPhone hacks, each of which scratches a particular nagging itch: the first being lack of MMS on 2G iPhones, and the second being tethering on OS 3.1.2.
iPhone MMS just went live, and already there's crazy stuff to do with it: Send a photo to a custom email address at Yfrog via MMS, and it'll be tweeted automatically. Plus, you can use more than 140 characters. [
Sweet Jesus, AT&T just told us that MMS for iPhone launches September 25. Which is emphatically not summer. It'll be coming via software update for iPhone 3G and 3GS (remember, old iPhones are getting left out).
In a nutshell, "AT&T will make multimedia messaging (MMS) available at no extra cost to customers with a text messaging bundle," says AT&T. [PCWorld]
The official script may have minimized it as a maintenance release, but some users are finding out that iPhone Beta 5 contains more than bugfixes. So far: YouTube's improved, and hacked MMS is no more.
If this camera button is any indication, you'll soon be able to send photos (and videos?) with your iPhone, just like all your friends have been doing since 2003. Sweet.
