    you cant send tones through email because you cant save it only play it. you cant send tones through mms because..who the hell knows why. why is such a simple feature so impossible to do? i just tried again to send a ringtone to my other buddy that has a droid and failed. gmail, hotmail, handcent all failures. has anyone figured this out yet? i mean i want to send him my ringtone so he can save it and use it not just hear it.

    there are quite a few thread on this. i believe if you cant send and receive them is because the file is too big. cant remember the file size at the moment.

    well how is there a way to make teh filesize smaller from the droid? this was never an issue with att, on my blackberry and anydumbphone can even sent tones very easily. this is just a stupid issue to have to deal with. reminds me of 2003.

    Yep, I first noticed this back in January I believe when I was trying to send my girlfriend some ringtones I made. My ringtones are always about 500KB because what I do is throw a song into Windows Movie Maker, chop out a 25-30 second hook, save it, then convert it into an .mp3. BAM! High quality ringtone, and free. :)

    Anyway, the solution for me was to download Bluetooth File Transfer from the Market. It's a free app that will let you send anything you want over Bluetooth and even adds itself into the list of share options. This app also doubles as a nice little file manager/folder explorer app, just not as pretty as Astro. Try it out!

    But even this bluetooth app isn't flawless, I couldn't send anything to a g'zone phone with it, and the ringtone definitely wasn't as large as 500 KB
