According to AT&T's latest iPhone 3G S FAQ (PDF), the company will offer MMS messages free with a text-messaging plan at some point later this summer. Until now, some current customers have feared having to pay an additional fee for texting. Considering all the negative feedback about iPhone 3G to 3G S upgrades , this is probably a strategic decision on AT&T's part.

Why all the fuss about MMS, especially given that you can replicate the functionality of MMS using e-mail much more easily on a smartphone? Even if e-mail is easy for you, your friends without a smartphone have only MMS for photos and videos between phones. AT&T's support of MMS to the iPhone bridges this gap.
