    I have had an iphone 4, for about 2 years until it starrted dying on me.

    Ibought a Samsung Galaxy S2and LOVE it. SHould have went over to Android a long time ago.

    However, I am having a few issues. With the iphone, it was all within itunes (syncing, photos, music, etc).
    I cannot figure out how to transfer music from my itunes (playlist) to my Galaxy S2.

    Please help!

    I want to do this without any third party software, if possible. (ie: drag and drop into phone)

    I would sign up for Google Music and allow that to sync your music. When you first set it up it will ask you where you want to import your music from, just point it to iTunes and it should do the rest. Now anytime you add new music to iTunes it will automatically updated Google Music. Takes a while if you have a lot of music.

    iSyncr and iSyncr wireless from the Android Market (Google Play) is my favorite setup bar none. Makes Doubletwist look like a hack.

    Enjoy!

    Google Music really worked for me, and I totally agree about Doubletwist. That one was not intuitive, nor particularly effective. As a further recommendation, I'd suggest you avoid going the route I explored, which involved Windows media. There is no excuse I can think of for Windows media :p

    You definitely can with isyncr. I use it all the time and it works well. It does not, however, transfer your # of plays, etc back to itunes if that is important to you.

    TuneClone is esp. designed fro this purpose which can remove the DRM protection of iTunes music, and then convert M4P,AAC,M4A to MP3 audios.

    iTunes Agent for Windows PC and iTuneMyWalkman for Mac. Personally I used iTunes Agent and worked just fine.

    For this kind of task iTunes is one of the usable things but due to some technical issue people now using third party File transfer tool to transfer files from iPhone/iPad/ iPod to others portable devices..

    New RealPlayer for Android announced here on phandroid.com. Regrettably, it doesn't play m4p files either.

    Dang.

    Recently, Samsung released an useful app called Music Hub which you can use it to sync your Galaxy S with iTunes ...

    A good iTunes DRM removal .

    iTunes is exclusively Apple-based, you can not get itunes content on galaxy s2, learn more here to get details to do this.

    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.

    Google play works good, also Kies software says it can import your itunes playlists into the phone but I"ve never tried it. I like the google play set up.

    I've tried so many of these 3rd party players and they all have one major downfall or more to them. The one I like best is TuneSync but for the life of me I can't get it to write the mp3's to my external SD card. I've wasted so much time trying to find something that works like it says it does.

    That's definitely one thing the iPhone has going for it. Ease of use syncing media.
    Kies sucks. Double twist sucks.
