    It is something I have thought about for a long while, moving from Iphone to Samsung. I currently have an Iphone 4 that is coming up for an upgrade in June and I am unimpressed with the Iphone 5. I am therefore seeing what is launched between now and June on Samsung, but the biggest hurdle I need to get over is my music library.

    I have 90 GB of music on my laptop which I sync with iTunes. Because I have so much I use the check boxes in iTunes to manage what goes on to the phone but i do not delete what is not checked as i still want it for a later date on my hard drive.

    I have looked at using Google music and also looked at other third party apps. I have a Samsung galaxy Tab 10.1 so i can look at some of the apps and try them out but I am still unable to find an identical solution that iTunes offers.

    The only idea I can see is instead of use check boxes in iTunes i use the online/offline selection tool in Google music instead and manage it that way.

    I would therefore like peoples thoughts on my alternatives but also let me know other apps of solutions I have not thought off

    iTunes sounds very restrictive to me. I object to installing something which basically duplicates what I already have (media player).

    I've got all my MP3s stored on my home network on a network share.
    I just use my phone to browse to the share over wifi & copy what I want onto my SD card.
    It sounds far more complicated than it is!

    I have had this issue, and only until now have I accepted it. Until now, I just attempted to alter my Apple ID that I use inside of iTunes for purchases (an unrelated email address to Apple), to my iCloud email address, to another iCloud email, all while retaining all the purchases I had made with my original Apple ID when I had altered the ID. I can now effectively use the email address of my preference to purchase new content from Apple while retaining all prior purchases I had made with a seperate account. Is this the answer we have all searched for to no avail? I know it's my answer, and I wished to share this with everyone that had previously encountered this issue, for I have not read of any others that had experienced my success.

    Have you tried double twist? It appears to function similarly to iTunes.

    I just copied everything you the google cloud. I also have a full SIM card for in the car.
