Correctly Install MMS on iPhone 3G, 3GS

A number of people have contacted me to let me know that the MMS update is not installing on their iPhone 3G or 3GS.

After installing the MMS update on your iPhone, you must reboot your phone to complete the installation process! Apple has posted the directions for correctly installing the MMS update on your iPhone 3G and 3GS on the web. The last stop of the process reads:

“After iPhone restarts, verify MMS is active by creating a new text message. You should see the camera icon to the left of the text field:”

So how about it, US iPhone 3G and 3GS users, have you been able to successfully install and send an MMS message? Let us know by clicking the Comments link below.

Thanks to Gary R. for the tip!

    After I restarted my phone, the camera icon still wasn't there. I solved the problem by disconnecting the USB cable from the computer and reconnecting it to ensure the updates were made. I then turned my phone off and on again. That time it worked, and the camera icon is now appearing when I start a new text message.
