Is MMS a possible third party add on? I just want to know if I should get my hopes up for this.

There are 3rd party applications for jailbroken phones.

you know, I would think that after allowing Office files to be read via e-mail, they would have MMS.

You'll never see an MMS app in the app store. If MMS is ever added on, AT&T will add it and for a price to send and receive.

This is another reason why Apple having complete control over apps on the iphone is bad for us consumers. Apple and AT&T can completely control the applications and charge you for certain functions if they want to. They don't do that with you regular computer, and since the iPhone is simply a handheld computer, I am completely against it.

There WAS an app available for Jailbroken phones. It is not compatible with 2.0 yet. The developer submitted the app to the app store but it got denied. Which as stated above means it will probably never happen.

Personally, I have no use for MMS on my iPhone. If I want to send a picture I'll email it.

I tried SwirlyMMS on my original iPhone and it was a PITA to use.

The iPhone may be a handheld computer, but it is still a cellphone first and foremost, and has the responsibility of working as reliably as possible. Just look at Windows Mobile devices to get an idea of what programming freedom can become. It's a mess. Even with how much control Apple is having over the app store, I still have seen a drop in reliability of these phones since the 2.0 update, due to the 3rd party apps. Imagine if there was no control. I wouldn't always be so quick to condemn a company trying to keep a certain degree of QC and support.

Either way, Apple isn't the one who cares about MMS, it's AT&T. And of course, MMS isn't exactly free on any other phone either.

And as such it should have MMS like every other mobile with a camera. It should at the very least give the consumer the choice.

If AT&T wants to limit iphone customers then fine but why there isn't an MMS app from Apple for Phone companies who are willing to give their customers MMS.
Email doesn't cut it. There are a huge number of people out there who just don't use email on mobiles. Add to that even fewer have push email so they don't get a notification that an email has arrived. It's no substitute for MMS.

True, but it's mysterious exclusion out of the box is a different story. I don't see the benefit of denying MMS apps unless there's a substantial amount of changes needed under the hood for it to work properly, which I don't really believe.

I would disagree. The difference is subtle but the iPhone is really a Handheld computer that happens to be a phone as well. It is marketed and sold as being a cell phone first and foremost but it is not designed as one.

It meant that you couldn't send an MMS to an iPhone via this method. Did it work for you? I have not yet tried it.
