Picture Texting on iphone

I've got a 3G iphone recently after having Nokia n series for years.
I'm having problems coming to terms with it.
Can anyone tell me how I can send a picture by text.

Its running 3.1.2. firmware. i've had it jailbroken to gain maximum benefit from it.

Help appreciated.

Go into the Photos application (which is on your phone by default), find a photo and select it. You should then see a half square with an arrow in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. Tap that and it brings up a range of options, including sending the picture by MMS. That's the one you want.

Or if you're writing the message, just to the left of the little box you're typing in there's a round camera button. Press that and it gives you the option to either take a photo or to add one you've already taken.

The only reliable way is to send a hand-drawn picture to Steve Jobs and he will personally deliver it to your intended recipient.
I think thats how it works

I get three options coming up; email, assign contact and use as wallpaper.
Am I missing something?

Can't find camera button anywhere there!

That's odd. I have MMS below E-mail. I'm on the iPhone 3GS, which I can't imagine being that different. Have you tried angelfairee's method?

just a thought ... have you received a text message saying you're set up for MMS?

http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/5461802/IMG3009-main_Full.jpg
anyways step by step guide here.

Things You'll Need:
- iPhone 3G/3GS
- Phone contract that includes MMS

Step 1 - Select "Messages" from your iPhone's home screen.

Step 2 - Click on the "New Message" icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Step 3 - Type in the recipient's phone number or email address in the "To" field. Separate multiple recipients with commas.

Step 4 - Click on the picture of the camera on the left-hand side of the screen. This will bring up two options.

Step 5 - Select "Take Photo or Video" to take and send a new photo with your iPhone's built-in camera. Or select "Choose Existing" to send a photo that's already on your iPhone's camera roll.

Step 6 - Enter any text that you would like to accompany your photo.

Step 7 - Click "Send."

Tips:
As a shortcut, when viewing photos in your iPhone's camera roll, you may select "MMS" from the menu to send the photo. You may add as many photos as you would like to a message before sending by repeating the steps prior to selecting "Send."
Ensure that your cellphone carrier has enabled MMS on your account, or you may be responsible for extra charges for any photos sent or received.

#13
i've got a 3G and before i got it officilaly unlocked (JB & UL for voda) I was only on version 3.0. I'm pretty sure I didn't have MMS then but after officially unlocking and then upadting the software to the latest version, i can now MMS exactly as above. As said, mine is now an officially unlocked O2 iPhone 3G running latest software. I removed the jailbreak and haven't yet re applied.

Sorry couldnt get back, working hard for the Mrs.

I'm still baffled by this, could it be cause i'm using a 3 sim in a jailbroken iphone?
Also one of the links posted above; http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3573 says;
If you don't see MMS Messaging, you may need to install a [COLOR=#2971a7]carrier-settings update[/COLOR]. Connect your iPhone to iTunes to do so—if there is no carrier-settings update available in iTunes when you connect your iPhone, check with your carrier to confirm that it supports MMS.
Can't find this in itunes???
#15
been awhile ago but when i first connected (more than a year ago) i got the carrier message on the iphone.
#16
Found more about carrier settings here; http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1970

So its not that, must be the 3 sim?
#17
The version of the carrier settings is visible on iPhone by tapping Settings > General > About and looking next to "Carrier". If you restore with a new version of the iPhone software, the carrier settings update may be included with that update. If not, iTunes will indicate that a carrier update is available after the restore.

Can''t find anything via google on this either.

can you go to your photo album on the iphone (the icon is a sunflower, see top row 3rd icon from left)

then select a photo you want to send (1st icon square with arrow in it – on the menu bar at the bottom of picture)

"In a blog post i wrote last November about How to get MMS working on the iPhone with O2 i stated that iPhone contracts aren’t set up to actually send the MMS message to the device. Instead they hold the message on the internet and send you an SMS message to tell you how to access it using your browser. This indicates that all those contracts would have to be updated to allow MMS message to be sent directly to the device, and of course, O2 would have to send the MMS settings to the iPhone using an over the air update.

This seems to hold somewhat true as many users are tweeting that they couldn’t send MMS message until a text came through from O2 with the MMS settings.

So, if you are having problems, i am afraid your just going to have to wait until O2’s computer gets round to your ‘contract’ and sends you the settings message, then you’ll be MMS’ing in no time."

Well since I'm using a 3 sim, O2 will never be getting round to me!
