Droid Bionic: Compose a Multimedia Message

The most consistent way to compose a multimedia message using your Droid Bionic is to attach the media to the outgoing message. Follow these steps:

  1. Compose a text message as you normally do.

  2. Press the Menu soft button and choose the Insert command.

    A pop-up menu appears, listing various media items you can attach to a text message. Here’s a summary:

    • Existing Picture: Choose an image stored in the phone’s Gallery.

    • New Picture: Take a picture right now and send it in a text message.

    • Existing Audio: Attach a song or an audio clip from the music library.

    • New Audio: Record an audio clip, such as your voice, and then send it.

    • Existing Video: Choose a video you’ve taken with the phone and stored in the Gallery.

    • New Video: Record a video and then send it as media in a text message.

    • Slideshow: Create a collection of photos to send together.

    • Location: Send a URL of your current, or another, location.

    • Name card: Attach contact information in the form of a vCard.

    More options may appear on the menu, depending on which apps you have installed on your Droid Bionic.

  3. Choose a media attachment from the pop-up menu.

    What happens next depends on the attachment you’ve selected. You’re taken to the appropriate app on your phone, where you can choose an existing media item or create a new one.

  4. If you like, compose a message to accompany the media attachment.

  5. Touch the Send button to send your media text message.

    In just a few, short, cellular moments, the receiving party will enjoy your multimedia text message.
