Dear Apple: It's (past) time to let us customize our alert tones

Picture this: you're hanging out at a friend's house, and the familiar "doodle-dee!" of the iPhone's Tri-tone alert sound goes off. But four people simultaneously start reaching for their iPhones, because they're all using that sound for SMS/MMS alerts. Or how about this: you're on a bike ride and g...

FunMail adds instant images to Facebook status & MMS

At the risk of invoking a round of reader rage, I'll admit that I've never really been that hyped on the idea of MMS on the iPhone (and, by the way, get off my lawn).

The long awaited and much vilified AT&T MMS service was finally launched in the U.S. yesterday.

AT&T & MMS: So close, some of us can taste it

Well, it looks like they were telling the truth, for once. Last weekend, a friend of mine just happened to forget that my iPhone couldn't receive MMS messages, and sent me a picture he had taken.

AT&T tries to repair the PR damage

We've complained often about the PR mistakes that AT&T has committed. Customer communication has been poor or absent. The result has been sinking approval for the company, and AT&T is pretty much getting the blame for any problems the iPhone has. After finally announcing a date for MMS...

Good news for those of you who live with me here in Chicago and also don't have a car: while AT&T has gotten on the bad side of a lot of iPhone owners lately (seriously, that MMS delay is lame), they're at least doing one good deed for us Chicagoans. They've just announced that they're bringing ...
