    I think the MMS limit is like 300K. Not too large.

    Depending on what phone your wife has, you can try sending the file via bluetooth.

    Android doesn't support this very well natively, but the app 'Bluetooth File Transfer' should do the trick.

    When i send any sort of audio file i use Astro, long press on the file and send through any of the listing. I usually use gmail.

    Handcent allows you to change the maximum file size up to 1 MB, under Maximum MMS size. I am not sure if there is still a limitation on Verizon's end or not.

    use gmail and send to her phone using cellphonenumber@vtext.com. I've done this with an audio file I converted using tubedownloader and I'm 100% sure that it was over 300kb.

    edit: I'm assuming she has verizon as well.

    You should be able to send it via MMS regardless of size. The MMSC (Multimedia Service Center) on the recipients network will transcode it for the target device base don that device's profile in the system (right file type, etc). You may be able to send a 5MB MP3, but they would get a smaller version that has been degraded through transcoding on the network.

    YMMV, each carrier is different and each device is different. 2 different models would likely get two different results of the same file when it arrived on the device.

    You could always just email it to her. Or do the bluetooth file transfer - there's an app for that.
