    A little Backstory: This is not my 1st HTC or my 1st Android. Actually my 1st Android was an HTC Inspire (ATT). Let's just say we had a serious love/hate relationship & as soon as I became eligible, I wasted no time upgrading to the phone I have now (Samsung GS3). Anyway, I can't afford and don't really want an iPod but needed a new MP3 player. I read an article suggesting I could turn my old phone into one but it's pretty much useless. So I bought this one. I plan on using it exclusively as an MP3 player and have a 64GB card installed.

    1. Has anyone ever done the same thing?

    2. I don't want anything else on the Micro SD but music and don't plan on taking photos, so how can I make sure no apps or files are automatically installed onto the SD card?

    3. Can anyone recommend a [preferably free] cross platform music downloading/organizing app/software?

    I did have a few more questions but am drawing a blank, so anything else I should be aware of? I'm also purchasing the lowest Beyond Talk plan so that I'll have a backup phone w/data if needed. Thanks.

    I've got an old Samsung galaxy y that I use as an mp3 player with an SD card in it. I have no sim card in it so it can't do anything unless I connect it to WiFi so it won't update or download anything unless I want it to. I connected it to my windows laptop and just used windows media centre to sync up my music. I also use drop box to easily transfer music etc onto all my devices without having to connect to my laptop. As for a media player I use either Google music or amazon mp3, of for radio Tune in Radio pro. There's a huge selection on the play store so you can keep trying until you find one you like.
