AT&T has announced an official date for the arrival of multimedia messaging on the iPhone: Sept. 25, a few days past the official end of summer. Thus, the company is breaking its promise to deliver MMS by “late summer” by a few days.
The company confirmed the date in an e-mail provided to Wired.com.
“We know many of our iPhone customers are eager for an update on our rollout schedule for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS),” an AT&T spokesman said. “We’ve been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches – and today we can announce that launch date: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day.”
