Well this is a turn-up for the books. It looks like the jesusphone might be getting MMS support after all. Swedish telecoms giant Telia has announced that it’s planning to launch an application for the iPhone that will enable the much-missed feature.
Of course, there are ways to hack the device to enable MMS support, but for those users who are (understandably) a little cautious about hacking something as tightly locked-down as the iPhone, there hasn’t been a solution up until now.
No details have been released on how the application will work, nor how it squares with Apple’s ‘why don’t you just send it by email instead?’ approach. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that the application will work outside of Telia’s native market, but nor is it a given, so don’t get all those picture messages queued up in your outbox just yet.
