    My wife has a Palm Pre Plus and we are trying to figure out how to download the attachment that I sent her in a text message. I had downloaded a bunch of ringers on my HTC Incredible which she liked, so I sent two of them to her via text message. She opened up the messages and was able to play them from the message but would like to use them as a ringer and assign them to specific callers. Is she able to download them to a specific location from the text message or how else can I get the ringtone to her to accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance......

    I've never recieved any media via text message before but I knw when you recieve a picture you just tap on it and a list of options appear and one of them is view. Click on it and the picture pops up with a copy to photos button, maybe there is somthing similar with the ringtones. I don't know if I helped at all, hopefully someone can help you if I didn't.

    Don't quote me on this because I don't have any files on my MMS to test this with (audio mesasges)

    But.. if you plug your phone in as a USB drive to your computer you can 'dig' to find them and then copy them to your 'ringer' folder.

    You'll need to make sure you can view invisible items....

    goto .attachments\mms and from there you will have to dig for your items. I would have the folder view sort by date modified... you can do this in both Windows and Mac.

    Just look for the date it was sent, then open that folder. The file should be in it.

    this guys got it right. plug it in, open that folder, then if she wants to use it as a ringtone she should drag it into the Music folder or the Ringtones folder. that way it'll show up when she tries to select a ringer

    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.
