AT&T testing iPhone MMS in Washington (Updated 4x)

While on vacation last week I received an MMS on my iPhone (running OS 3.1 build 7C116a) while passing through Forks, Washington. I received the message from a user on Verizon Wireless on the east coast.

Normally this would be a non-story, except for the fact that iPhones in the U.S. don’t support MMS because AT&T hasn’t enabled it yet.

Daring Fireball’s Jon Gruber tweeted that two DF readers in Seattle are saying iPhone MMS support is working.

Update: AT&T Mobility’s Executive Director Media Relations responds “We have not yet offered MMS on the iPhone. We plan to do so in late summer.” (corrected at the request of AT&T). Clearly some MMS testing was taking place in Washington over the last week or so.
