MMS on the 3G iPhone

Here’s the thing: my family uses MMS extensively. When my sister catches a big fish, she sends a picture. When more than a few of us are out to dinner, we send pictures to those that aren’t with us. When there’s a beautiful sunset, we send a picture.

Everyone in my family has and uses MMS.

But, not everyone in my family has or uses Internet access on their phones. Sending an email instead of an MMS is not an option.

So, still no iPhone for me. I want to love it. I want to have a phone with 16GB of MP3s and videos and real web browsing. But the lack of MMS is a deal-killer. Not just in a hypothetical sense, but in a very real “my family is more important than that” kind of way.
