Default Downloading purchased music from Rhapsody

Is there any way to download music purchased from Rhapsody to the music player on the phone? With my old SGS1 (Fascinate), if I purchased a song then it would download into the music player, so that I could then turn it into a ringtone. But I can't figure out how to do this on the new one.

I am not 100% sure so don't quote me, but I believe that now you only lease the right to listen to that music as long as you pay the monthly charge to Rhapsody, and as soon as you cancel that subscription that music is no longer available to you. If that is the case, that would explain why they don't allow the downloads to be put on your personal music player anymore. I really hope I am wrong though.

You are both right and wrong. When you subscribe to Rhapsody you are essentially renting the music on a month-to-month basis, and can download the music to your phone for offline playing, but it's coded so that if you don't re-up your subscription, the music stops playing after a month. That said, in addition to the monthly subscription you can also purchase individual tracks or albums. Doing that should give you unfettered access to the purchased track even if the subscription ends. I just can't seem to figure out how to get that purchased track to play anywhere but Rhapsody (which only confuses me b/c the Galaxy S1 allowed me to do it).

Thank you. I just learned something.
I don't understand why it is giving you problems then, especially since the G1 allowed it.
Let us know when you figure it out, if it isn't posted here already, since I am sure others will also have this problem.
