Tips on Downloading Music to Your IPhone Without Spending a Lot of Money

For many iPhone enthusiasts, ability to download their favorite musics to their iPhones cheaply or even freely is one of the top priorities. If you do own an iPhone, I am sure you too have been trying to figure out how to download your favorite musics in the most cost-effective way.

I see there are many iPhone users who spend a lot of money in those pay per track music download websites. If you are downloading music to your iPhone from such websites on a regular basis, you may want to sit down and calculate the amount of money you spend over a year. You may be shocked to find out that your music download expenses can even get you another brand new iPhone.

You can forget about those pay per track music download websites and peer-to-peer (P2P) illegal music download networks. Here are some of the best ways you can download music to your iPhone without having to spend a lot of money; or even for free in some cases.

If you have a lot of existing CDs, the first thing you should do is to convert all your favorite songs into the MP3 format. You can use iTunes – a proprietary digital media player application by Apple – to rip audio CDs to MP3 format. The iTunes application can run on both Macintosh and Windows operating systems. This way, you can have all your favorite albums imported to your iPhone without paying a dime. This was what I did when I first got my iPhone.

Besides playing and organizing digital music files, you can also use iTunes to connect to the iTunes Store via the Internet to purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, games, various podcasts, Movie Rentals and Ringtones (available only in the USA).

Visit the iTunes store on a regular basis as they often have free music available for download. In most cases, the featured artist will have a few music tracks available for download at no cost at all. There are many other large music download websites offer freebies for new members. You can take advantage of this offer by simply registering as a member for free.

Subscribing to a one-time annual fee site that offers unlimited music downloads is also a good idea. This way, you will be able to download all your favorite musics to your heart’s content for the entire year. The annual subscription fee typically costs about $20, it is a lot more cost-effective as compared to pay per track music download websites.

These are just few tips on how to download music to your iPhone legally, freely or at minimal cost. Don’t cultivate the habit of downloading music to your iPhone illegally as this may get you into trouble with the law. Also, your iPhone can get infected with computer viruses or malicious spyware if you download stuffs from illegal sites.
