    I don't believe you can get MMS working unless you jailbreak your iPhone.

    Personally, I'm not going to bother. Email works just as well.

    MMS is old technology, so the go now is attach to email and send - on some other phones-on-plans-with-MMS it would be a more expensive call cost to MMS it, than the cost on the iPhone plan of the broadband data used for sending it as an attachment to email.
    Just like SMS versus IM/Chat on the iPhone
    eg. chat in iPhone free Facebook app from the app store - BTW you can directly upload photos using that too, if that's what your interest in MMS happens to be -
    SMS is so much more expensive at normal 25c per SMS costs, than the messaging/chat data cost.
    Newer tech' is sometimes cheaper.
    Now what can and can't be attached to emails on the iPhone - that's another question and depends on software used and whether or not it's jailbroken, etc..

    All legitimate 3 phones have MMS support. 3 configures and tweaks their network to be suited to those supported handsets. Therefore, there's no need for them to provide an MMS-Viewing gateway for non-MMS handsets.

    Unfortunately, if you're sent an MMS you won't be able to view it.
