 Don't I need a GPRS modem for sending MMS?

When you send a MMS from your mobile, it gets transferred over GPRS to the MMSC. Then MMSC sends SMS to recipient's mobile, which starts a GPRS download from the MMSC. That's how a MMS gets transferred.

If you want to simulate above behaviour, your real problem is to simulate MMSC. It's totally dependent on the chosen application how the message is created and queued for sending. That part is considered trivial and left as an exercise to the reader. The hard part is to send a proper SMS to the recipient and serve the recipient phone for message download.

As you can see, this is totally different from sending a SMS and there really is no need for a GPRS-connection (not unless you want there to be).
