Newipoduser1 ... unfortunately your solution will not likely work.
It's not generally a good idea to email such large files (your typical song is about 3-5MB in size). It would be best to try and load your music files onto a USB flash drive and attempt the transfer to another computer that way. I realize your USB port is read-only (is this because it's a corp. owned machine?) but perhaps you can give it a try and see. Failing that, I would maybe try to "burn" the music files to a CD. BEWARE! Make sure you burn them in their mp4, AAC or mp3 format as files and not as music. (Same is true for USB transfer)
NOTE: if the machine you're using is a corporate machine I would recommend NOT downloading any more songs from iTunes to that machine. Besides corporate security policies, it's important to know that Apple allows you to "share" the AAC music files among 5 devices, this includes computers, iPods etc. Each machine you load those files to will be recognized by Apple when you sign into iTunes. If the machine in question is a friend's, have them grant read/write rights to the USB port and you won't need to go thru all the steps above. A simple sync of the iPod will do the trick!
Good luck and welcome to the wonderful world of iPods!

You can try using email to text. However, iTunes is usually not compatible with anything non-apple and it is likely they have made it so the ringtone will only work on an iPhone. In case it may work, here's how to send it to your phone:
1. Open Gmail or another email service
2. Compose a message and for the to address, put (Phone number all ten didgets)@vtext.com for Verizon phone or (Phone number all ten didgets)@txt.att.net for AT&T phone.
3. Click "attach file" and select the ringtone. (not in iTunes) you will have to find it in another folder such as "Music" on your PC
4. Once the file has been uploaded, click send
5. You should receive it as a text
6. If it doesn't work, then iTunes has not allowed you to use it outside of iTunes.
Use a service that allows large file attachments- find the file on your pc, and in the email client (Outlook, on the web with GMAIL, Yahoo, etc-) click attach file. once you have attached the file to your email message, send it to your friend
Go into itunes and try syncing your phone. You may be able to move the email from the application. Otherwise delete your mail account, and re install it after backing it up with itunes so you don't lose the contacts. I have 2 of them and mine has done that before, my wifes never has. so it's a quirk, but it was the only way I could get mine running again, it shouldn't affect anything else, just re input the settings for the email account and you should be good to go
you could go onto your new iTunes and log in with your acount email and password. then send a message to help/support or whatever and say all of your library was erased. most likely they will give you all of your songs.
YOU CANNOT DO THIS BECAUSE OF THE FORMAT ITUNES HAS ITS OWN FORMAT THE CELL PHONE FORMAT IS DIFFRENT UNLESS YOU HAVE AN IPHONE THAT HAS ITUNES LOADED ON IT AND THE PC WILL ALLOW THIS TO TAKE MUIS OFF OF IT BUT IF YOU USE A CELL PHONE IT IS NOT MADE BY APPLE SO ITUNES WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO JUST DUMP MUSIC FROM YOUR PHONE TO ITUNES THANKS
Click the "attach" button in Mail and browse to the location of the song.
This is usually in your User folder (the little house) in the music folder. Like so:
User name > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music > [artist name] > [album name] > [song title]
Pick the song you want to attach and hit Send.
Several possible "gotchas" though:
- Songs you buy from iTunes may be "protected" files. MP3s should be fine.
- Some email systems limit the size of file attachments, so your email may not make it.
(Transfer using something like YouSendIt.com instead.)
Hope that helps.
Greetings. Do you have an account set up on iTunes? One quick way to tell if your not sure is to open iTunes, look to the left hand side of the program and click on iTunes store. Once the store has loaded look at the upper right corner and if there is a button that says sign in you do not have an account set up. If you do have iTunes account information you can log in using that button. The app store needs you to login the same way.
Once you have music or apps in the iTunes simply hook up your iPhone to your computer. It should sync automatically.
You do not have to hook up your iTunes to a wifi network it is optional. if there is no wifi network it will just use edge or 3g if you have the new iPhone.
It is not possible to send a multi media message with the iPhone. It is not included. You can however send pictures via email. Let me know if this helped or if you want more info. Take Care, -WN
