While many carriers around the world plan on supporting the new features as soon as Apple makes them available, it would seem that those in the US aren't going to get it ASAP.


AT&T, the nation's only carrier for the iphone, says that the new features won't be immediately available.

iPhone users across the U.S. were disappointed Monday to learn that AT&T, the only operator in the country offering the iPhone, won't immediately support a couple of key new features in Apple's new 3.0 operating system that will be available starting next week. But AT&T says these features are coming.


"We will be offering a tethering plan and MMS for the iPhone," Mark Siegel, AT&T's spokesman, said by phone. "But we haven't announced a date."
