How to use eSnips for sending free files to your cell phone

Send this to your mobile for free

Send this to your mobile for free

Did you know that you can now use eSnips to send pictures and mp3s to your cell phone for free? Well probably not because until this moment we haven’t actually publicized the feature, but it’s here, it’s awesome and now I’m going to walk you through how to use it.

Do you see the “Send this to your mobile for free” link below the picture of me and my hamster? That link will basically appear under all picture and mp3 files on eSnips, and if you see something you want on your mobile, that’s what you need to click.

Add Mobile number

Add Mobile number

That will lead to the “Add mobile number” screen where basically you just have to enter your country and phone number. A verification code will be sent to you as a text message, essentially just to confirm that the cell phone number is really yours. Copy that verification code into Verify box and hit the Verify button.

The first time I tried activating my cell phone for instance, I forgot to add a “0” to the prefix of my phone number which will be needed in some countries. But the application definitely works!

Anyway, after you press the “Continue” button,  which will be on the right hand side of the screen, your content will be sent either directly to your mobile phone or as a WAP link, depending on your phone model.

The “Send this to your mobile for free” feature currently only works with picture files and mp3s, and currently is limited to 10 downloads, but if this is a service you’d like to see expanded – let us know!

Just in case there was any ambiguity, here’s where the “Send this to your mobile for free” link is on MP3 files.

    Is this really free? or it’s just a–u know wht I mean.

    • esnipsblog Says:

      We’re not charging you anything for the delivery of the files to your cell phone, but normal carrier fees apply. Meaning for instance, if your carrier charges you $0.02 for every picture text message you receive, it would still cost you $0.02. But from our end the service is 100% free.

    After that What ? need we pay for more or is it 10 per day ?

    • Jonathan Cohen Says:

      For the time being it’s just 10 downloads period, but if enough people speak out about wanting more that’s definitely something we’d be receptive to.

    i don’t see anything under the photo I just uploaded to my esnips folder, except stars to rate the photo, a “download” button and a”flag as inappropriate” button. Where would all the other buttons be?

  25. G Stewart Says:

    I’m trying to find a software that will let me take a CD of my music, put it into the CD drive of my computer, and change it to mp3 format, for sending via email and for listening to on an mp3 player. What do you suggest?

    Also, if possible, I’d like to find a product that can be installed on a jump drive, as opposed to installing it on a computer. Is this possible?

    Thank you.

    Please, how to I block members I.Ds from leaving spam in the “comments” of my files??? (And if this is not the correct Esnip site for a question like this, which is the correct one?)

    Really looking forward to your reply. Thanks in advance.

    • Jonathan Cohen Says:

      Users can’t directly block other users from commenting on their content. If your having problems with a spammer, please send me a link to an undeleted spam comment on your files. We’ll disable that user’s account and should be able to retroactively delete all his spam.

  33. dhinendra Says:

    hi Jonathan Cohen i am still waiting for your response please help me out buddy…

    • Jonathan Cohen Says:

      I’m confused, do you want to upload your PDF file on eSnips, or embed eSnips content on an off site blog?

      • dhinendra Says:

        hi sir thanks for the reply actually i have created a blog on which i want to upload pdf files so please help me out. or just visit my blog once and then tell me what should i do….????

        thanks for the help

      • Jonathan Cohen Says:

        Okay, go to the page with the eSnips pdf file you want to embed. There will be a “Get Widgets” icon below the file. Click on it and you’ll get an embedding code you can cut and paste onto your blog.

  34. Katelyn Says:
