    I received a humorous mp3 from someone via text message - how do I save the file to my phone? currently I can only play it through the messaging app.

    Update - found the answer; should have searched harder:

    You can do this directly on your phone using the Internalz app.

    Whenever you receive a photo (which you can save via standard functionality) or an audio file, Palm creates a folder and stores the file in /media/internal/.attachments/mms/

    1) Open Internalz
    2) Navigate to /media/internal/.attachment/mms/
    3) Scroll all the way down to the bottom (the last folder is the most recent)
    4) Open folder
    5) Click on file (there will be at least two files but you should be able to determine which one is the audio file...it will not have an extension....at least for me it did not)
    6) Select 'Info'
    7) Add .mp3 as the file extension (this must be done in order to play the file)
    8) Select 'Move' from the list
    9) Select the folder you want to move it to...for ringtones it will be /media/internal/ringtones

    There you go. You now have a ringtone saved to your phone that was sent via text.

    Hope this helps. I use it all the time. It's not as great as being able to save it from the text directly, like you can for a photo, but you can at least save an audio file sent to you.

    It's best to save the file as soon as you get it since you'll know what folder the file is in. If you wait and receive other MMS and additional folders are created then you will have to fish for the file, which could take some time.

    Also, please note, I saved the files I got as .mp3 because they were mp3's sent to me but did not have the .mp3 extension for some reason. I have not tried this with other file types but I would imagine it would work if the file type can be played on the Pre.

    Great post. Use Internalz.

    You can download it through Preware if you have it.
