Wouldn't it be great to send your favourite tracks to a friend via your mobile phone. Maybe using the same method as SMS. We could just use the handsfree kit to listen to the track or normal audio headphones. At the moment all we can do is send ringtones but that is not music!!.

3GPP - GSM on steroids. http://www.3gpp.org/
The web site is terrible, but this is an actual consortium trying to basically turn mobiles into e-mail clients, only it's not e-mail because it can do multi-media. Except that e-mail can already do multi-media, but well, mobiles are special. [jutta, Jan 18 2002]

       As long as they don't make music sound as awful as they do now. Give it a few years, sit back and relax as the record companies start shitting themselves over a new file-sharing application...

       (Imagines people walking around with circa 1970's boom-box-sized phones, blasting music)

       I'm pretty sure this is baked for some phones and ringtones.

       This idea is exactly what one of those brand awareness adverts for Nokia says. The one with the scientist and his reggae loving mate. "Soon, you'll be able to send music through your mobile."

       Can one not already send e-mail from some cell-phones? And can one not attach MP3 files to e-mail? So what am I missing?

       I don't think using "the same method as SMS" will fly. SMS messages are limited to about 120 bytes. As for the rest -- what angel said.

       Baked. This is essentially MMS - the proposed Multimedia Messaging Service for 3rd Generation mobile phones based on SMS.
