Mere hours after it was launched, the eagerly awaited MMS (multi-media messaging) feature for Apple’s hugely popular iPhone was disabled, as AT&T’s data servers proved incapable of coping with the massive influx of wiener pic traffic.
“Within the first few minutes, our network was flooded with nearly 3.4 million MMS messages and the early data shows that almost 98% of those were pictures of our male customers’ penises,” stated Ronald MacArthur, head of data traffic for the company.
Got to love iPhone users

AT&T is in Dallas now, not SA.
Are you joking?

Female iPhone users seemed less enthusiastic about the feature.

Iphone has been the most revolutionary mobile device since the pager.
Indeed it is... now if only a user could get moderately good service, then you're in business!

Iphone is hands down the best piece of hardware on the market. It also has a very slick OS and some high quality apps. That's the good part.
The bad parts:
Apple and AT&T.
Apple sucks because it locks down the device, takes forever to approve apps and tries their hardest to disallow anything not wholeheartedly approved and supported by them (this is bad because it stifles innovation and competition). Let's not forget, no removable battery or expandable memory.
AT&T sucks because they join in with Apple in helping to prevent apps that might not produce revenue, namely Google Voice. The bigger issue with AT&T is that their network is poo. All across the country they are behind Sprint and Verizon in terms reliability and 3G network speeds. They simply do not have the infastructure to support the millions of Iphone users at once, let alone provide them with quality 3G speeds that they advertise all over the place.
