Carriers Can't Agree on MMS Terms

Until carriers allow MMS interoperablity the service will be nothing more than a novely. Everyone knows this, so what’s the delay? The technology is there but the market is so new that carriers all trying all sorts of different pricing schemes. That makes it tough for them to agree on revenue sharing terms. This is a short term issue. We predict that in most GSM markets MMS services will be interoperable by the end of next year. The US will probably lag behind given that the big six networks use 4 different network technologies.
