    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?

    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.
