    My USB port is "read only" so I cannot upload music from iTunes to my new iPod Nano. Can I e-mail the music to my email account and upload it from another computer??

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!

What is the easy way to transfer iPhone voice memos to computer?

The easiest way is to email the voice memo to yourself. You can do so by clicking on the memo, then click on the export icon, then select email.

If you are trying to save multiple voice memos, you can just back up your device to iTunes on your computer.

How to add ringtones

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) for Verizon phone or (Phone number all ten didgets) 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.

This message exceeded the Maximum Message Size set in Account Settings, so we have only downloaded the first few lines from the mail server. Click here to download the rest of the message.

These errors mean that the size of the message, including all headers, text and attachments, exceeds the domain's maximum per-message size limit - essentially, that the email is too big to be accepted.
This means that the message wasn't sent because it was too big. You need to take out something from the email to that it's small enough to send.

Delivery Status means what happened with the delivery eg sent, failed.

The recipient domain didn't accept the email because it was too large.
I would advise you to send the email in 2 smaller packages.


Features Yahoo! Mail Plus Yahoo! Mail Message size limit 25MB 25MB Filters 200 100 POP access Yes No Forwarding Yes No Yahoo! AddressGuard Yes No No promotional taglines in messages Yes No No graphical ads Yes No No account expiration Yes No

25MB message size
Send and receive up to 25MB per message. That means sharing lots of photos, music, video, and presentations without worrying about bumping up against message limits.

I tried sending a large file via email on my iphone

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

I want to transfer my music from my iPod to my new computer itunes. Can't figure out how to do this without erasing it all.

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.

Email music from itunes.

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 instead.)
Hope that helps.

I have a few. how do i download music? i have iTunes, but i dont know how to use that with my iPhone. on the iPhone it says i need to hook up my Wi-Fi net work, but i dont know how to choose one. when...

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,
