Default please help me compress my mp3 file so I can send it in a text message to someone

please help me compress my mp3 file so I can send it in a text message to someone. I have tried and tried to find an app to help me but I'm lost. I am new to smartphones I have an android optimus and everytime I try to send the song or even part of the song it says file is too big to attach.

mp3 files are already compressed.

You could try something like AndroZip: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.agilesoftresource&feature=search_re sult#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5hZ2lsZXNvZnRyZXNvdX JjZSJd

but if it makes the file any smaller it likely won't be by very much. Music takes up a lot of space, and there's not much way around it.

Try uploading the track to something like zippyshare and just text the link so your friend can download it?

There are PC audio converters out there which will re-encode MP3 files. Google is your friend. Just re-encode it with a lower bit rate. I don't think switching from Stereo to Mono will affect the size much.

Or use the cloud sharing option as noted by oleb84.

Hope this helps.
