    Hey guys, I am trying to figure out how to send an audio mp3 file to someone. I go to attach and click audio but it only allows me to send like things that came with the phone.

    Thanks much.

    I use Handcent and hit menu, attach, audio, then select music. That brings me to the music I have on my phone. Hope this helps. Just figured it out yesterday.

    Or in a file browser, such as ASTRO, long press on the file, tap Send, then tap Mail, Messaging, or whatever method you wish to send it.

    I hit audio and it brings me to a list of audio files, i don't see where to select "music" from at all...

    this does not work either, I go to handscent to send it and nothing is attached...

    I want my friend to have this on her phone not her computer...

    When I am in a thread, and I hit menu>attach>audio, I get 2 choices. One is "android system" and the other says "select music". The "select music" has the little handcent looking box next to it. It also asks me to make one action a default action,which I haven't done. Maybe if you clear your defaults you will have that selection again. Sorry, that's my best guess. Hopefully someone else can take you further.

    Oh yeah, I also tried the astro way, and it didn't work for me either. It just sent a blank message.

    I tried sending a full mp3 track via handcent to a friend running an EnV (original), and her husband running an EnV Touch. Said the file was too big :( But MP3's that are about ringtone length I have no problem sending :D

    1) Are you trying to send a "full length song" or a ringtone (read: 20sec clip) mp3?
    2) What type of phone does the receiving party have that you're attempting to send to?

    *I am by no means an expert when it comes to this stuff, but if a pattern can be figured out, that might find a solution of some sort.

    cleared my defaults and even tried it with stock app. I don't get that option, it just brings up a list of audio that came with the droid.

    I am on bb 1.0 so maybe that is the problem or something?

    seems very basic, sending an audio file. It's a 20 second clip its not large at all.

    What Jethro said is the trick (it's what I do) - using Handcent.

    I know the following has been beaten to death, but bare with us :)

    Inside a Handcent thread / conversation, I click
    1) Menu (droid button on phone)
    2) Attach
    3) Audio
    4) A window will pop-up with 2 options: Android System , Select Music
    5) Choose Select Music
    6) You should now be given 2 more options (at least I am).. System ringtone , Music
    7) Choose Music
    8) Now you should be staring at all your music, just select the one you want

    How far on the above steps do you get?

    just email it to him/her and let them figure out how to get it on their phone.

    If I want to transfer songs to my friend, if they have bluetooth just download "Bluetooth File Transfer" and bluetooth it to them, easy as that.

    I am unrooted, although I doubt that would make a difference. If you are trying to send it to another "smart" phone, you could download the app "bump" on both phones and just share it that way. Sorry, I don't have much else to offer.

    HM, I clearly know how to email, not sure if you knew that or not.

    I'm trying to figure out how to do something very basic I could do with other phones. It's Droid Does not Droid Can't so just figure out another way.

    My friend has no idea how to transfer anything to her phone or use email on her phone but she does know how to buy and make peoples ringtones their ringer when they call.

    I guess thanks for the help, but no thanks?

    Step 6 is wrong, there are no 2 options. It goes directly to a screen that lets you pick system ringtones and that's it.

    He asked you how far you get through those steps, just because YOU can't see it, doesn't make it wrong.

    Now, that being said, handcent does give this functionality, why you aren't able to get to work is the problem we are having at this point, considering everyone else can use it the same way.

    Yes, this is a common problem with this phone AND Android in general. It was designed poorly and needs to be fixed so that a basic function can be used on such a smart phone.

    BB v1.0, is that 2.1 or 2.0.1 based? If I remember correctly the option they are talking about is 2.1 based, so if BB v1.0 is 2.0.1 based, your out of luck.

    The email trick is what many people have used in the past to get ringtones off their phone and to other people. If you friend is a VZW customer, you can email them the ringtone, but it comes through as a text for them.

    XXXXXXXXXX@vzwpix.com (Replace the XXXXXXXXXX with phone number and it's best to use the area code too).

    If all these options don't work, we can keep plugging at it.

    Haha ... for what it's worth, at least we figured out how far along Phaze got (even if his reply wasn't exactly in the right wording) ;) No worries ...i can see where my question / procedure was a little redundant / frustrating :)

    Phaze - try this (either using Astro or another file manager utility)
    1) On your SDCard, create a folder called ringtones (maybe even place it inside another folder called media .. so sdcard\media\ringtones ).
    2) Locate and copy the mp3 you wish to send
    3) Paste the mp3 into the newly created ringtones folder.
    4) Try sending the audio again via Handcent - the audio file in question should be in the list you typically see :)

    * You can, of course, do the above using your computer too by first mounting the usb connection, and once your done copying the file, unmounting.

    I just figured out another way, I couldn't download Handcent for some reason. It's kind of a back and forth thing but it worked. I downloaded a ringtone on Mabilo > share, then emailed to myself. Then I texted it back to my phone, then forwarded it on.
