    You cannot send a full song in a SMS with a stock iPhone. sorry. However, if you happen to be jailbroken, you can send whatever you want in an iMessage or email.

    thanks, for the info...at least I know that i could send a partial song in sms, however it's not going to have the same effect as the whole song would have:(
    now let me go search that jailbreak you write about

    thanks, again

    It's not legal to share copyrighted music via a text or email ever. That's why it's not provisioned for in Apple's implementation of SMS. If you're jailbroken it just makes it easier to break the law with regard to sharing music. :-/

    You can always send a link to the song on iTunes so they can BUY the song as they should.

    There is "some" free music out there - but not much. Pirating of music is 100 times more prevalent than pirating of apps.

    thanks, I do understand what your saying, however when I purchase a song, I feel that I can do whatever I want with it, send it in an email, send it in a text to someone, give it to someone ect

    Ok... we're getting a bit off track here and into a discussion of the rights and wrongs of piracy. Let's get back to the OP's original question about sending a full length song via text or email. Short and simple... it's something that Apple does not allow natively on the iPhone. The only way to do such is to Jailbreak.

    Great idea! Now THAT would be in keeping with the laws since "streaming" music from a site IS acceptable. I'll have to check that out! I wonder if they simply show a link in the text?
    UPDATED: Just checked out. Only works for email - not texts. And only allows streaming play. No way the song can be saved in the other person's library. They'd have to buy it.

    No, the application actually sends the file. And streaming music is only legal if you have a license agreement in place with the rights holder to do so.
