    Hangouts 1.3 Will Reportedly Add SMS, Giving Android Its Own iMessage Equivalent

    Google is said to be prepping an update to its Hangouts instant messaging/video chat Android app that would allow it to integrate with SMS, making it possible to get all text and MMS messages right in the same inbox. That would fulfill a promise made a long time ago, near when Hangouts was first announced, by Hangouts and Chat community manager Dori Storbeck. Read More

    Shoot The Web With A Stolen Game By M&Ms – UPDATE

    Yeah, this is some viral marketing BS but it is, to be fair, fun. M&Ms in Denmark have prepared a violent game involving two M&Ms who move through the Internet, destroying things like a pair of bulbous Natural Born Killers. Read More

  • AT&T iPhone 3G and 3G S officially getting MMS on September 25

    AT&T iPhone 3G and 3G S officially getting MMS on September 25

    After months of speculation (and frustration) MMS for the iPhone 3G and 3G S is officially arriving on September 25, AT&T has confirmed. This is a full 3 days after summer officially ends (AT&T’s original deadline was “late summer”) as our own MG pointed out earlier today, but like a lot of things with Apple/AT&T, better late than never. AT&T posted the… Read More

    Exciting rumor: iPhone 3G S may finally get MMS next week

    The iPhone 3G S launched a few months ago, but AT&T users haven’t been able to take advantage of a few much vaunted (and much needed) features as yet: MMS, Bluetooth file-sharing, and tethering are the Big Three. This, of course, despite the fact that AT&T is the “flagship” carrier! But never mind all that, because today we have some good news in the way of this… Read More

  • Trick for enabling MMS on the iPhone – UPDATE

    Trick for enabling MMS on the iPhone – UPDATE

    A reader, one Mr. Dude dropped this into comments last night and we’re about to try it. Presumably you have to enable tethering and MMS before you begin. UPDATE – Just go here with your iPhone browser. This enables tethering but we’re still trying to figure out MMS. Read More

  • AT&T FAQ reveals no extra charges for MMS

    AT&T FAQ reveals no extra charges for MMS

    AT&T will not be charging subscribers extra for MMS when it rolls out, according to an FAQ (PDF) that iLounge found online. Just thought you should know. I was worried about that and now it looks like I’ll be dumping my BlackBerry Curve and heading to AT&T for the 3G S. Will AT&T offer MMS and tethering? Later this summer, as part of the 3.0 software, AT&T will make… Read More

  • Paper: Sexting really isn't a big deal, won't ruin teens' lives

    Paper: Sexting really isn't a big deal, won't ruin teens' lives

    We’ve all heard of “sexting,” when teens send nude photos of themselves to each other via text message (well, MMS). Schools don’t like it, parents don’t like it, but, apparently, it’s all the rage among young people these days. Well, it turns out that sexting really isn’t that big of a deal; it’s merely a continuation of the age-old tradition… Read More

    MMS coming to iPhone 3G!!! OMG! WOW! *

    MMS is coming to the iPhone 3G! Buy stock in Apple! * Note: 3G only available in Finland and on the Telia network. This post does not in any way imply that Apple and/or AT&T will offer MMS support in the United States. This application only works on Telia’s network and it should not be suggested by the tone or wording of this post that you should be excited by the prospect of MMS… Read More

  • iPhone 3G could have MMS

    iPhone 3G could have MMS


    An internal AT&T memo states that the iPhone 3G supports MMS. This is all conjecture but interestingly enough all of the plans offered by AT&T make no mention of MMS or even text limits, which means, in a roundabout way, they’re hiding something. Does anyone use MMS anyway? Read More

  • Cell stalker gets unlucky with MMS video, gets arrested

    Cell stalker gets unlucky with MMS video, gets arrested

    Just because you’re unlucky doesn’t mean you’re inept with technology. Take, for example, this story. A woman goes to her local police station to complain that a creep was stalking her, calling and sending her phone videos of himself masturbating. This creep had bad luck, though, and actually sent her just such a video as she was in the police station making a statement. When… Read More

    Put your photos on M&M's


    Mars is starting a new service called M&M Faces which will allow you to slap your mug on a bunch of M&Ms. The service follows M&M’s original My M&Ms service which allowed you to personalize your candies. Why you want faces on your M&M’s is anyone’s guess, but presumably you can get anything on there you want. Read More

    Man sued by woman for sending nude pictures messages to phone she bought from him

    Working in retail is hard work, especially in the electronics field, but sometimes your interactions with people on a daily basis lead to new relationships. I worked at a big box retailer for about three years and got many dates out of it, though it wasn’t appropriate at all. The key is, though, to know when it’s OK and when it’s not OK to ask a customer on a date, and how to… Read More

    AT&T raising SMS/MMS rates

    Yep, that’s right, folks. Starting March 30, 2008, your standard SMS rate will now be 20 cents and MMS rates will be 30 cents. If you’re on an all-you-can-eat plan then it doesn’t matter, but for those of you on an ala carte plan, you might want to consider switching plans. AT&T Raising SMS Rates [Phone News] Read More

    Verizon Pioneers MMS Uploading…NOT!!!

    Verizon may be able to call themselves the most reliable voice and data network in the country, but they’re certainly not the first to allow users to upload videos to YouTube via MMS. The fact that they’re releasing a press release touting such a feat is pretty ridiculous and embarrassing. Verizon, pay close attention to what I’m about to say. Helio was the first provider in… Read More

    YouTube Mobile Launches


    YouTube just launched a new service optimized for mobile devices. A few days ago we mentioned how the Gen-5 Archos players are the only mobile devices to play flash vids smoothly. Maybe this will give Archie a run for its money. The new YouTube Mobile site is mostly xHTML and requires a pretty beefed up data plan, it also supports uploading videos via MMS for the three vBloggers out there. Read More

    Those Chinese Love Them Some Texting

    If you thought your high school girlfriend sent a lot of SMSs, wait ’till you see what China is predicting. The Xinhua news agency said Monday that it expects over 14 billion text messages to be sent during the Lunar New Year. Keep in mind, this is just during one week! China Unicom and China Mobile have both adjusted their networks to compensate for the increase in traffic. Plus, with… Read More

    Croatians Love Their Texting!

    MMS messages like this one were part of the massive amount of SMS messages that were sent by Croatians to bring in the new year. People from Croatia really helped celebrate 2007 with 32.5 million texts being sent to wish each other a good new year. From the AP: From 07:00 pm (1800 GMT) on New Year’s eve until midnight on January 1, users of Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile and… Read More
