Slow sending/creation methods

Hi, I have all the right code at this point but when I create the message and send it things go really slow and sometimes it takes a couple minutes for the Success Toast to pop up. Anyone know of a way to make FileHelper.class a little faster?

Are you running it on a real device or on a simulator? The android simulator can be very slow sometimes, so it is possible that's all it is.

It's on a device (really new one).
