    Default Texting an MP3 file ?

    I am trying to text an MP3 file. It's a promo for an event.

    It's 55 seconds long and 96 Kbps. Which makes it a 657 KB file.

    My cellphone says it's too large to text.

    Anyone know what the minimum text size is? Is it different on various carriers?

    I would hate to have to compress it down to garbage.

    Thanks.

    I'm guessing attachment limits are set either at the software level (the messaging app you're using) or the carrier or a combination of both. Can you get the person's email address and email it to them via attachment? (they could still listen via phone and you could still send via phone)

    You could upload it to Google Drive then share the link with the recipient.

    I emailed it to a friend and he texted it back to me.

    when I played it, the carrier had automatically downconverted it.

    I sent him a 96kbps MP3 and it sounds like a 24 kbps mp3. but it's now magically a .AMR file.

    That's what you pay for with that big unlimited cell phone bill.

    I would suggest a free drop box account and the DB app.

    the client wanted it to be textable.

    Thanks for the other recommendations.

    But I needed it to be textable.

    If you send links to open link stuff to market an event, it doesn't get opened.

    why not just use dropbox ?

    Wouldn't that be easier?
    That quality is POooooEY!

    I think they were doing a text blast? Similar to email blast I just don't know why the quality wouldn't do it justice?
