AFAIK, it is not possible to do so on the iphone 4, since there is no way to directly edit the apn settings.

Not officially unlocked ones, only via jailbreak unlock.

You are right Jorden. Unofficially unlocked iPhones are horrible. One iOS update and your unlock is gone. Same if you have a Sim imposter like the Gevey Sim

Yeah I've got a couple officially unlocked ones... only ever had a jailbreak for about 30 mins and didn't think it added enough to keep it jailbroken.

Well the only way to send picture messages is by turning on data. It doesn't use your data as it is unlimited on your account.

You could try sending the picture by email.

Would you happen to have an unlocked iphone 4 or a jailbroken iphone 4?

This would be the only way to do this is. Otherwise there is no other way with a regular carrier locked iphone 4

Without a jailbreak, this site lets you change APNs by packaging them as profiles:

There is no MMS-only setting for Koodo right now, but you can contact the webmaster and request it.
