    This may seem like a really stupid question coming from a person who has owned this phone for over 2-mos but I just tried to send an SMS message with a PDF file attached and it seems you can't do that. When attaching files to an SMS message it only gives you options for pics, vids and a few other options. Is this correct - you can't attach PDF files to SMS messages? I mean it's not really a big deal cuz I can always just send the PDF via email but I was a little surprised by this. So...can you do this with the phone in stock form or is a 3rd party app required to gain this functionality and if so can someone recommend a good one? Thanks

    Technically no you cannot. SMS (short message service) can only send text.. When you go to send a picture, video, or audio file the messaging app converts it to MMS (Multimedia Message Service) which allows the media type files to be sent. It cannot send actual files like pdfs, executables I.e. Exe files, or anything like that.
