    I'm using the Firefox web browser on android 2.2

    I'd like to be able to send a link via text message. I would like to be able to just go to a page, and somehow be able to get the link to that exact page into a text message. Can this be done?

    I don't know how firefox web browser work, but using my Android phone I can do this two ways. 1) Copy and paste the page url in the message. 2) If the link / page has an option to send VIA messages - then I would normally use this option.

    I kinda figured copy and paste lol. I'm just asking how to go about it. But yeah I was on the FF browser. Maybe it can't do it.

    Long pressing on the text field will open a dialog box with one of the options copying/pasting

    Well my question has been answered so I guess I just as well use this thread to ask my next question. I made a little mpeg layer 3 (aka MP3) file that I want to set as my incoming text message sound. For one person. All the rest, I want to be a different sound that I also made. Is this possible?

    Just hold on that page and select the links you want to send, copy it, and then paste it to send out.

    Try hitting menu while on the file, or long presing and see if "set as" comes up. Or try doing it through your contact list. It is totally possible though.

    That didn't work but I'll keep trying. Bound to be some way to do it. Probly have to find the file where the text and ringtones are stored, and place them in there.
