    Hi, this is my first post to this forum so please bear with me!!

    I've just taken delivery of my new Samsung Galaxy S2 on the o2 network in the UK and have tried downloading my music from iTunes onto Samsung Kies. It brings across all the songs ok but doesn't bring across the Artist name or Album title. Does anyone have any tips or advice on how to bring the names and titles across aswell please.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    In order to get the music and playlists copied onto my phone and tablet I've been using a third party app called "iSyncr". So far I'm happy with it...

    I was about to post a thread asking the same question...

    Ive had a 32Gb iPhone 3gs for about 2 years now and my fone company are basically jokers and ... yadda yadda yadda..

    Anyway so.. If i were to move to another service provider i could get my hands on a brand new fone and i've been rolling all these questions around in my head and thought this may well be the place to ask;


    1. I would be devastated if i lost my itunes library! it took me YEARS to buy (occasionally "share" it). I do like the system and its the main reason im hesitant to switch.

    2. I suspect that the iphone 4s will be more expensive than the galaxy s2 ( in Spain) im looking at with a new provider.... does anyone have a view on this?? This apple fanboy B.S. didnt really take off as much over here in Spain... dont get me wrong im sorry the mans dead n all but... i'm looking for the best fone not a religious calling!!
    I love my iphone but if the galaxy s2 is better then thats their loss cos Im a switching...

    3. I keep reading that the OS for the Galaxy S2 is purely for the geeks, now i dont mind a little bit of geekery but i aint no rocket scientist.... will the newer easier to use ice cream sandwich OS be available to run on the Galaxy S2 or should i wait even longer and get the samsung nexus??

    4. I have a nostalgic soft spot for Nokia... i would like them to do well... whats the skinny on the best new Nokias out there? Its seems to me that at the moment my choice is Samsung Galaxy S2 or iphone 4s.... any other kinky fone suggestion people have??

    Im sure these have all been asked a million times so i apologise but im getting sick of looking at the pictures and im about to do some impulsive shopping.... whats down their after I leap??

    Oh and a very good afternoon to you all!

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    You iTunes library will remain intact, although if you don't have an iDevice, then it will become unnecessary. Copy your iTunes music folders to the SD card on your Android phone and that's it for transferring music. I keep mine simply for organization in a folder called music. It looks something like this ... music/artist/album/tracks.mp3. Then, if you have any playlists you want to transfer, then export them from iTunes as .m3u files and put them in a folder called "playlists". The only problem you might have is with music purchased prior to 2007 when Apple still had DRM attached. If that becomes an issue, then let us know and we'll let you know what your options might be.

    Not a clue. If it's like it is here in the U.S., they should be pretty close in price.

    The beauty of Android is that it works at all levels. If you don't want to geek around ith it, then it will be fine as stock. If you want to don the taped glasses and propeller beanie, then you root, flash and play until the Star Trek marathon starts ;)

    I would be shocked if the S2 didn't get Android 4.0 (ICS), but it may take a little time. If you want to be first, then the Galaxy Nexus will be worth the wait ... maybe. Since nobody has one yet, it's all speculation.

    There are other very good phones available, but it's really up to you. Spec's won't tell you how each one feels in your hands (or pocket) and the manufacturers UI's tend to create a strong argument for each phone either pro or con. It's mostly personal preference.

    The wonderful world of Android.
