Need help for storing data

I'm currently doing a school project. It requires me to create a mechanism to customize an MMS. Everything, including text, font, font size, image, sound clip and even video must be customizable.

Here comes a minor problem. Currently, WMA does not support sending of MMS. I was thinking about this. I will store everything into a J2EE server database (e.g. MySQL), then use HTTP connection from the mobile device to retrieve everything.

But, here comes a problem which I don't know how to solve. Is it possible to store those elements into the phone? I understand that there is no way to access the native filesystem (unless a vendor specific API is used, such as Nokia API). I was wondering if it's possible to store it by using RecordStore (although it doesn't sound possible).

Any help will be appreciated.

I plan to store audio clips, video clips and images.

I'm thinking that this will consume a lot of space.

Well it probably will but the question is, Is it ok for "me" to store that amount of data in the phone? I never worked with storing sound, video etc. So really dont know the amount of data that are suitable to store.

Storing sounds and vieos in cell phones is impossible. Cause mobile phones have largely very very small memory, such like 200K. I know, someone could say new cell phones have even 40MB of memory, but the reality is, tak the most spreaded devices are N3510i, Nokia S40 and others. My experience comes from Czech republic.

I've usually seen this limitation 'overcome' by storing urls in the RMS and using them to make network connections at runtime. Of course, this adds the whole networking overhead, so I'm not sure its a real solution, just something I've seen done.
