Apple Solves iPhone 5.6 Carrier Update Mystery

"After three separate calls to Apple Support, I was able to reach a representative this morning that finally answered the infamous 5.6 carrier update mystery that quickly followed after iPhone OS 3.1.2was released last week.

The Apple rep indicated that the 5.6 carrier file update addresses a specific issue that some iPhone users were experiencing after the 5.5 update enabling MMS was rolled out on Friday, September 25th.

When sending photos or videos in an MMS message, the progress bar would stall at about 90% then result in an error ending with a (!) red exclamation point next to the MMS message. The associated message failed to be properly sent, though standard text messages worked as normal. The 5.6 patch addressed that particular MMS issue. "
