I have a song that I'd like to share and figured I could send it using email. I'm not sure how to do it and if it's even possible. Anyone? How can I email a song on the iPhone?

Sure someone else will chime in shortly but IIRC, you'd have to be jailbroken to do that.

My iPod is on iOS 4.x and I went back to stock. Has Apple change their policy on such things in iOS 5 or 6 ?

I'm sure Bump allowed you to send half of the song and not the entire song?
They used to we had bump since the first day way back and it keeps changing.
Anyway I though about this and I think there is somewhat of a loop hole
Tell me if that makes sense iPhonewarrior
make up a new @me account
buy iTunes songs on regular Apple ID
back up songs only on dummy icloud
your friends can log in your dummy icloud ?

There's an app that did that. But I'm not sure I can say the name. John?
I'm not even sure it's on the App Store anymore.

There is a roundabout way to do it from a stock phone, but the song would have to be on your computer, your computer would have to be on or in standby, and you'd need a remote login app, such as LogMeIn or Splashtop. You wouldn't need to be home. You would login to your computer remotely and email it from there.

No. It isn't possible as you would require root access to the iDevice which Apple does not like to give away easily, you've got to fight for it.
And that's a fight he/she is sure to lose. Apple would give us pretty much every app/tweak that exists in Cydia before giving us root access on stock devices (since it allows people to pirate apps).

That's what I can't understand about Android, those devices (this isn't a dig at any Android user... I'm one as well remember!) don't seem to have any protection against pirated stuff.

Anyways... there was me thinking iOS 6 GM would bring SBSettings-style toggle switches :cry:

I agree - it's hard to believe we still don't have stock settings toggles. I guess there will always be a reason to jailbreak.

True enough, I can give anyone an apk file that I already have installed. The only reason I do buy apps is because I like the app enough to pay for it and/or I want their updates. As for getting free apps, the only place I trust is XDA and even then, only after a senior dev has commented that it's a good apk.

The other side of this coin is that I've spent a considerable amount sending donates as well as financing crowd sourced efforts.
