SwirlyMMS 0.3.6

SwirlyMMS Good news!! Version 0.3.6 of SwirlyMMS makes it compatible with firmware 1.1.3 and above! Also, since my last review of this app…there has been one very cool new feature added…the ability to receive Multi-Media texts!! Which is totally cool however, in order to view the MMS you have to, “use a viewer, like MobilePreview and a file browser, e.g. MobileFinder and browse to the folder where the received images are stored: ~/Media/MMSFiles.”! Other than that…the app functions pretty much the same as previous versions. The only thing this it is still missing is the ability to send videos and music via text. Doug and I have tried to get this app to work without much success but, we are pretty sure that is because we do not have multi-media messaging turned on for our account. :) Let us know in the comments how this app works for you! SwirlyMMS is available through the Ste Packaging source.

Note: You can get all the info on how to install/set-up this app on the Developer’s website.

    • Jollyblue says

      how did u get it to work?

    • Mmsc:

      APN: wap.voicestream.com

      Some operators resizes the pics to smallest possible when they dont know what kind of device it is sending to. SwirlyMMS have the possibility to pretend beeing another phone and voila you will get the pics in correct size

      Do this, add the following source to the installer: swirlyspace.com/SwirlyMMSSettings/Settings.xml

      I used the SonyEricsson W800i and Im getting the pics nice and big. Im on Tmobile US

    • Jollyblue says

      Thanks Mic!!

      I got it to work and thanks for the tip about the phone faking thing. The pictures are definitely a lot larger. I’m just curious though, do you get your pictures displayed sideways?

    • NP… :) the program dosint display it sideways…

      If u have any more Q i can help u out… im all over the net looking stuff up.
      If anyone needs help email me at yoniyat@hotmail.com or add me to ur live messenger… :)

    • Jollyblue says

      hmmm.. I’m not sure, but when I get a picture msg the picture is displayed sideways! I’ve been trying to mess with the settings but I’m not sure why its like that. Any ideas?

    • Try sending ur self a pic from a diffrent phone… and if it still comes in sideways u need to hold the phone u r tacking the pic with diffrently.

      and if the picture was taken sideways on the phone it will display it sideways on the iphone, the only problem is the iphone dosint change the picture to a wide view so it looks weird and cramed.

    • Jollyblue says

      Yeah… Different people sent me msgs and they’re all displayed sideways. And the pictures werent taken sideways…sigh. I guess its better to get the msgs then not at all. lol

    • Yeah… LOL :)

      Do u have any other Q?

    • Jollyblue says

      OOOOOOO…I get why I’m getting the pictures sideways. You were right….the pictures were taken sideways. lol When I take pictures on my phone, I hold it vertically like I normally would instead of horizontally. I didnt realize that when taking pictures on the iphone, you should hold it horizontally so when you send it, its not sideways! I’m such a dummy. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE WITH ME AND MY DUMB Qs! ahaha

    • Its ok.. lol
      in my experience its always the dump things that get u… :)
      Im happy u figured it out! :)

      If u have Q about anything just ask :)

    • plz help. I can’t view the pic. Thanx

    • What program r u using?

  6. the app works pretty well once you’ve found and set the right settings for your provider, your account, etc. I’m running it under 1.1.4 together with the mobilepreviewer and the mobile finder. Totally agree THERE HAS TO BE SOME IMPROVEMENT ;-) Would be fine to have an app which would have the viewer functionality included, longer body texts, movies and soundfile abilities, etc.

    I guess it depends on the country your living in. Don’t know how popular MMS is in the US, here in Switzerland it’s used very often. Not only pictures from events and friends sending around is the topic, nowadays you also do have the possibility to receive you train ticket (and trains are havely used in Switzerland) by MMS and it will be scaned form the conductor ;-) And so on and so …

  7. by the way is the newest version – out now!

  8. works great for me,tmobile,1.1.4

  10. hey i hace the 3.7.1 version. i have mobile finder but the pictures are all small u can barely see them. is there anyway u can c them or save them somewhere else so u can c them bigger?? i do go to da swirly folder on mobile finder but their jus so small to realy c it. plz any help?? : (

  11. @mg713

    did you try to double-click the pictures in the mobile finder already?
    because that works fine for me – the picture is quite big, as big as the original i got sent.

    • thanx i tried but it doesnt seem to work .is this how u do it? i go to mobile dfinder tab the (~) button go to, then media mms files. and there they are but i cant seem to get them big jus as they show right there very small. i tried tappin it twice but its not working : (. any ideas??

    • that’s exactly what i do, double-tapping and “whouuu” it opens in full size. sorry, this doesn’t seem to solve the problem :-/

  12. When I tried sending out the MMS earlier, it said ‘MMS cannot be sent right now since GPRS/EDGE is not available!…”
    So I turned on my “Edge” using BossPrefs, and my MMS was sent out. My question is, since it involves Edge, sending out MMS requires a charge?? Just wondering, thanks in advance!

  13. I also had the same problem as Ken when I upgraded to

    I could send and receive fine before…now I get that error. I should have known better.

  14. You guys must have it through a different source…because through Ste 0.3.6 is the newest version.

  15. steve anderson says

    like last version this does not work I am on o2 pay as you go and have GPRS working because edge does not work on pay as you go says service denied I have phoned o2 and I gave multi meadow devices enabled to

  16. ok…i have no clue on how to set the settings lol help n e 1?

  17. Anyone know the settings for O2 in the UK?

  18. Last version did not work receiving, with Movistar here in Spain…or at least I could not make it work…I’m a bit lazy to try it all over again…

  19. so is better than 0.3.6? where can i find


    My old version was working perfect!

    I upgraded today to and now nothing works…..

    settings are perfected and saved from old version. ?!?!?!?!

    I used this all the time and now i get this message.

    “Possible incorrect mmsc setting. Unexpected http response (HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden)”

    Anyone have any ideas for me?

  21. I just called AT&T and they would not add MMS messaging to my account since it is the iPhone.

    • Yeah…Doug said the same thing to me too!! Very not cool! Hello…don’t they think about us hackers!! :)

    • Tell them you have another phone you use sometimes and want to have it activated.

      Just be very nice and call a few different times.

      But be careful…depending on the service you have it can cost up to $0.25 a MMS.
