    New iPhone carrier update (15.6)

    Hey guys

    Did anyone else get a new iPhone carrier update today? It appears to be 15.6. My iPhone 4S now says "TFW" at the top left, instead of "HOME". Perhaps this is now adding weight to the ST/TFW support by Apple.

    I don't know what the update included, as I can't see anything. Once my iOS update is done, I'll see if perhaps they've finally added MMS settings!

    Same thing for me and I have good news. I deleted the ST profile (i never did the sim swap) Ejected my sim. Restarted my phone.
    Booted it back up. turned off wifi. Turned off imessage.
    Internet LTE works
    MMS send works

    Looks like that age old issue may have been solved.

    I could be wrong, but I believe this would be for AT&T -- mine is currently running AT&T 14.2 on iOS 6.1.4.

    I can send MMS fine on mine with the sim swap but still can't receive MMS for whatever reason -- very frustrating.

    Edit: Nevermind, just got incoming and outgoing MMS both working! Good to go now 100% now and hope any new carrier updates don't mess it up!

    Interesting enough it doesn't work for me - I get the cellular data network error. I have an AT&T Sim but it's technically the "old" one, with the older data settings (att.mvno). I am guessing this is only for new sims?

    Haven't tried mms yet - everyone I would test have an iPhone so I can't check!

    This update is great! No more silly "HOME" network name that means nothing, no more having to add and remove a silly profile when traveling - and figuring out a way to get that profile with no data when you get back into the US. And especially working MMS! This is fantastic!

    Do you have the old AT&T sim (att.mvno) or the new tfdata one?

    Have new tfdata settings and I got a carrier update TFW 15.6 instead of AT&T like usual. Also did ios 7.0.3 update and once it reboot both data on LTE and MMS was working without any special action. Normally ios update or carrier settings would have knocked out data and MMS. Might be a good new thing. Also says TFW instead of HOME in the top bar

    I've been out of the loop for a little while, but I too received the new carrier 15.6 update today while in the process of updating my 4s to ios 7.0.3. I did the update without giving it much thought. Was hoping I wouldn't live to regret it. My 4s is running on AT&T with the sim from the Nokia E71. I just checked and MMS is not working for me. What exactly is it that I need to do to get the MMS working?

    My guess is you need to transition to new tfdata sim maybe? Using att.mvno settings right now? Does it say HOME or TFW as the carrier in the top bar. or sim swap the old way

    It says TFW on the top bar. I'm still using the old sim from my E71. Yes it says att.mvno.
