AT&T to enable MMS on iPhone?

Two class action lawsuits have been filed recently against Apple and AT&T for the lack of support for multimedia messaging (MMS) in the US. While support is baked in to iPhone OS 3.0 that was released this past June, the feature has yet to be enabled for US customers by AT&T.

When Apple announced that iPhone OS 3.0 was coming, it said that it would support MMS on the iPhone 3G and the upcoming iPhone 3GS. Unfortunately—to a chorus of boos during the keynote—Apple SVP Scott Forstall said that support from AT&T wouldn't be ready at launch. At the time, AT&T said that support would be coming in "late summer." Summer's not over quite yet, so we presume that AT&T is still completing "some system upgrades that will ensure our customers have the best experience with MMS."
