Default Playing Music On Phone

I know most of you have unlimited data plan and will not care.
I'm cheap and contacted my provider and asked how I can play my recorded music and not use data. They said if I shut off data usage
( find under setting ) I will not use any usage. I can still get calls and do text messages.
Just no internet.
so know I'm going to download music from my ipod to the phone

Talk to your provider to make sure and don't forget to turn data usage back on

I have an older phone that I use as my GPS (Garmin maps do not require a cell signal to work) and music player. Buy an old iPhone 4 and fill it up with music!

Playing music that's stored on your phone doesn't use cellular data. It's playing directly from the phonels internal flash memory or SD card, dependent on the device. Only streaming applications like Pandora or Shazam use your cellular data.

Lacy and I share 6 gigs a month and never go over...rarely use more than 4 GB. We run Pandora on all our long car trips. Music streaming really uses very little data. It's Netflix that'll get ya.

+1 on this. You are getting bad advice from whomever you spoke with on this issue. Playing music you already have stored on your phone uses ZERO data.

Look on Craigslist or any other online buy/sell site and look for an Ipod Touch. Looks like an Iphone 4 but isn't a phone and I got my 64 gig for 30 $ and it lives in the bag.

The 2nd generation Ipod touch also has bluetooth capabilities as well.

if it is "recorded" (better word would be stored) on your phone, then it requires no data to listen to. I have many albums downloaded to my phone via youtube to mp3 converter website. I shut off my data all the time as I do not want constant espn and email alerts when I am in the car or on the bike.

I do put my phone on airplane mode when I'm riding though. Not as if I can text while I'm riding, and I'm not about to fumble around to answer a call. Plus my battery lasts forever that way.

Answering phone is easy if you want to. Just push the button on the comm unit. Or not

I've used Rhapsody Premier for quite a few years. Download anything and everything I want to my phone over WiFi and can listen anywhere without using data. $10 a month.

People think I am too patronizing. (That means I treat them as if they're stupid.)
