Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2010 8:56 AM (in response to JamesRene)My wife and I are having the same challenge, as are others who have posted in the O2 support forum. Still no solution though. Hope it's sorted ASAP as I use MMS a lot.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 4 32GB Time Capsule 500GB

Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2010 12:54 PM (in response to JamesRene)I updated my iPhone 3GS to 4.2 last night. This morning, I couldn't select MMS from the photo library or go into my texts and select the camera icon. After doing a few quick searches all I found were posts like these.
Oddly enough, I don't have an MMS option in my messaging settings...it seems preposterous Apple would turn off MMS or make such a weird error in an OS update...and then I thought, duh, restart your phone. I always forget to do that when updating my iPhone.
So, just restart the phone. All the normal MMS options showed up. Hope it works and you all aren't experiencing some other issue.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2010 11:09 AM (in response to JamesRene)I'm having the same trouble with my iPhone 4 on o2 as well. Although, it only seems to be a problem with pictures taken on the phone. When I've tried to MMS an image copied from Safari, it sends no problem so I can only think it's something to do with the MB size of the image taken by the iPhone but I was led to believe that the iOS 4 update allowed MMS messages of up to 2mb to be sent.
Another thought is, should I have a good 3G connection in order to send a largish MMS? Where I live, there is no 3G reception.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2010 1:09 PM (in response to JamesRene)There does appear to be a problem with the latest O2 carrier settings
O2 recommend until sorted
Settings>General>Network>Mobile Data Network>MMS
reset ......MMS max Message size to 307200
This has worked for most people reporting issue on the O2 User Forum
although as usual initial issues raised had the Usual O2 response ....Oh its Apples problem
they have now it appears worked out it is their carrier settings causing a timeout on sending
a MMS up to the size allowed by the original settingDell XPS 420 /Dell 8250, Windows 7, iPod 3G, Ipod 5G 80 video ,iPhone 3G ,iPhone4, 2gen Shuffle
Currently Being ModeratedDec 20, 2010 4:10 AM (in response to Peter Gillespie)Doesn't work for me unfortunately, when I hit reset the Max Message size stays at 2097152. However, my theory of it needing a 3G connection seems to hold water. I tried to send a photo from my phone this morning and had a good 3G connection from work and it sent without a hitch but I have to disconnect any wifi connection for this to work.Mac Pro Quad Core, Mac OS X (10.6.5), MacBook Black, Quicksilver G4, iPhone 4 16gb, iPod 3rd Gen
Currently Being ModeratedDec 20, 2010 4:37 AM (in response to Jon Coley)You are not saving it
Look here the issue is the size set by O2 carrier settings .
Once you actually change size it should workDell XPS 420 /Dell 8250, Windows 7, iPod 3G, Ipod 5G 80 video ,iPhone 3G ,iPhone4, 2gen Shuffle
Currently Being ModeratedDec 20, 2010 7:28 AM (in response to JamesRene)I had that issue but it seems to have gone now, mms also had been disabled at O2's end after the update somehow. Anyway its working now, maybe O2 got things sorted.iMac 21.5" 8GB ram, i5 3.6 ghz, 32GB iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
