    I cannot figure out how to create MMS messages on my Moto Droid. I also want to send a text with a ringtone attached and have not been able to do this either. Any help?

    From where how do you start? I have only had this phone for a week so I am still really just getting started. I have the ringtone saved on the sd card I have the contact I can't figure out how to create a mms message. When you hit the attach button on the messaging screen it gives you several options but not ringtones or audio only record audio. If I go to the music area and pull up the ringtone my selections when I hit the menu button are library, party shuffle, add to playlist, use as ringtone or delete. No forwarding or attaching or sharing available. Still Stuck. And I can attach a picture but can not then attach a sound byte. ??

    Hey,

    ill get you through this.
    Open the app called SMS/MMS. Then hit menue and choose "compose". Now enter the number, and write a text. Hit menue and choose "attach". Here you can attach a picture and
    then the app will mak a MMS out of this sms, and attaches the pic.

    Let me check on that....just some moments

    Edit:

    When you hit menue and select "attach" a menu should popup, where you can select audio, video, picture and so on. just select audio,and browse for your file. If you cant see the file, it might have the wrong format or is too large.

    With the stock SMS/MMS system on the droid you cannot attach a "sound". Pictures are fine but adding sound doesn't appear to be doable. I had the same issue and posted a thread on it but i have not had any replies.

    So this is what i did......go to the "app market" and download the app HANDCENT. You can attach audio with it. I have not tried it yet but the option is there to do it.

    I would have thought that with a phone of this caliber that it would be rather simple to create a MMS with a picture AND sound. It appears that the only way to do it is with a 3rd party app like "handcent". If i am wrong i hope someone will let me know.

    The Droid automatically converts SMS to mms once you attach something to an SMS.

    Yeah, this really burns my arse also. On my blackberry, I used to make notes on the notepad and cut and paste them into an mms message because it would be over 160 characters. Not possible anymore! I sure hope someone is making an app for this.

    Unfortunately you cannot attach audio. That is the point the originator is trying to make.
