Maybe this is a naive question, but I was wondering if I could attach a pdf file to a text message. I have a Sony Xperia M4 Acqua running on Android 5.0.

  • I'm pretty sure you can't. Text messages are 7-bit ASCII, 160 characters restricted messages. An MMS might allow you to attach a file but I'm pretty sure there are size limits there. I recommend sending an Email or uploading it to a personal cloud and sending the link to the file.

You can't. You can only send small images and audios, but that would turn the SMS into MMS. Don't you like emails?
