Actually I would argue it was more important back then and less so now.

It all depends on your friends. I would prefer to post a picture or to email it. But the majority of my friends prefer to use MMS. More so back when the iPhone first came out.

We, the nerdy, geeky, and power users, make bad examples of common usage for most products, and we should be careful in assuming everyone is just like us

I remember my friends with Samsung flip-phones would use smiles in their SMS messages... which their phone would replace with a picture of a smiley face and then sent as an MMS to my iPhone. All I got was an empty text so it was a bit of a pain.
