How to get music on your phone

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Getting music onto your phone might seem like a daunting task, but it's quite a simple process. Most new phones are capable of playing music, and so here we look at three ways to load songs, podcasts and audiobooks onto the phone's memory card:

  1. Install the PC software that came with your phone Next, connect the phone to your computer via its USB cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Now you can copy music to the phone's memory card using the software. When in doubt, consult your phone's manual.
  2. Visit your carrier’s wireless music store Most cell carriers offer a wireless music store, so you can purchase tracks on your phone (no PC is necessary). Look for a "Music" icon or something similar on your phone's menu screen to download songs individually, or pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to a huge library. A generous data plan is recommended.
  3. Sideload a memory card Remove it from the phone and snap it into a card reader. Connect the card reader to your computer. It will appear as a drive letter (such as F:), and you can manually copy songs to the card, which might contain a "Music" folder.
