When Apple launched the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone OS 3.0 it said that the MMS option will be available later this summer in the US. In other parts of the world MMS works just fine, while in the US the situation is different. Steve Jobs announced that MMS is coming on September 25 and the delay was caused by the MMS opt-out codes that AT&T attached to all iPhone accounts.
