New technologies have brought lots of new things to mobiles, among which is the music functionality that practically every new device comes with nowadays. In fact, listening to music on your cell phone is becoming more and more easy.
Transferring songs that are saved on your PC (either because they’ve been imported from CD’s or downloaded from iTunes or other such services) to your cell-phone is probably the simplest way to add music on to your phone.
But how do you transfer the songs to your mobile? First you have to use either bluetooth or a USB cable to connect your mobile to the computer. You should then go to the Start Menu and open Computer or My Computer. Your phone should be automatically detected by your computer. Next you have to double-click on the phone’s icon in the open window.
The following step is to copy the songs from the folder where you’ve saved them and pasting them into the open phones folder.
Music files come in different types. The most popular is MP3 (compatible with most music-playing phones) and used for different download sites like iTunes and eMusic.
But it’s convenient to choose a music-playing phone that supports the same file type as that where most of your music is stored. For example, if you didn’t change settings when you ripped your CDs using Windows Media Player then those files will be Windows Media Audio, but there are also file types like FLAC and Ogg Vorbis (more common for people looking for quality sound.
However, if your music collection’s file types and the files your phone supports aren’t in accordance, you can convert your files into Mp3 by using Media Monkey software among many others.
Another way to download music onto your mobile is by doing it straight to your device without saving it on your computer (either directly from the internet on your PC or smartphone). In order to do this I’d advise a fast internet connection and it’s probably more advisable to use your desktop PC (if you have a good internet connection, then your smartphone (so as to not use up any of your phone’s data allowance).
