How to add music to your phone

The easiest way to add music to your mobile phone is by transferring songs that you’ve already saved on your computer. These tracks will either have been imported from CDs or downloaded from a service such as iTunes.

To transfer your songs you should connect your mobile phone to your computer using a USB cable. Next open My Computer or Computer from your Start menu. Your computer should automatically detect the phone. Double-click on the phone’s icon in the open window.

Next open the folder with your saved music. Then simply copy the songs that you wish to move to your phone, by right clicking on your mouse and selecting Copy, and Paste them into the open phone folder.

  • Download the latest version of iTunes onto your computer, take note of the directions for installation of iTunes.
  • Purchase or download selected music to iTunes. Click on the file icon located at the top of the program and click sync iPhone. Allow the phone to duplicate the MP3 files to the iPhone. Be careful not to unplug the phone until it has finished uploading your selected music files.
  • Allow the phone to charge for approximately one hour. Then plug a set of headphones into the iPhone. Touch the icon on the iPhone that says iPod to access your music playlist. Try to organise your playlist according to the frequency that you listen to specific tracks and personalise the lists for quicker access.
  • Browse your playlist and locate the song that you want to hear. Once you have selected the song or album, touch the artists name or icon to play the song. You can listen to music using the headphones or using the phone speakers.
  • Update your iTunes as new updates are released by Apple to ensure that you are working with the latest technology but do not download data, videos or music to your iPhone from a source that you do not trust.

Downloading music straight to your mobile

It is possible to bypass your PC but if you’re planning on downloading music regularly straight to your mobile you will need a fast internet connection. Remember that if you do not download via your PC using WiFi you will probably be using vast amounts of your phone’s monthly data allowance. A 3G connection takes about 30 seconds to download a song, or 15-20 seconds via HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access, or 3.5G).

If you have a basic GPRS connection it will take about five minutes.

Music download sites

Although you have a wide choice of different music download sites – Apple iTunes is perfect for your iPhone as it has more than 11 million tracks in its catalogue. Single track price on a tiered system, costing 59p, 79p or 99p, with most albums priced at £7.99.  As well as music download services, you can also sign up to online streaming subscriptions online. However, these services don’t allow you to to keep the music that you download.

Now you can listen to audio from compatible third-party apps while checking email, surfing the web, playing games, and performing other tasks. So when you want to follow a ball game or listen to music from Pandora, your productivity never skips a beat.
