Palm Pre

The plam Pre is my newest addiction. When I first got my new phone I didn't know how to do the simplest of thing but now that I have had it a few months I simply love it. I decided to write this hub to help other palm owners better use their Palm Pre to share things with their friends. To me my friends and my music are two very important aspects of my life.

Much to my dismay I thought I would not be able to share music with my text however; that is just at first glance. It seemed I could not add music to my MSM or text messages when I wanted to send a new text to my friends. I noticed I could receive music in their text messages but not add music to a message from my Palm Pre. I don't have to tell you how disappointed I was when I found this out. I almost took my phone back because of this problem.

If you are about to take your Palm Pre back because you can't add music to your text messages hold on! Stop, don't take your phone back! There is a way to work around this. I noticed my friends were sending me text messages or MSM with music in them so I thought there has to be a way. Well there is.
