Moving i-tunes from an iphone to a different phone

I want to get the new Samsung Galaxy but I have an iphone. The guy at the store said that I can do it by dragging the music from my computer into another folder? I'm not that savvy....

Get iTunes on your comp, then sync your iPhone to it. Now sync your new phone to your iTunes library on your comp.

It's not too complicated of a process, but one that is kind of difficult to sit here and type out without screenshots ... I'll do the best I can now.

1. Go to your music library
2. Go to iTunes
3. Go to iTunes Library, or something of the sort. You will find all of your music there.
4. Highlight all of the music you want on your new phone, right click, and select "Copy"
5. Go back to your music library and create a folder. Name it "Phone Music" or whatever you want.
6. Paste all of your music there.
7. Connect your new phone to your computer.
8. There will be a pop-up. Select "Open folders", or something like that. Can't remember exactly what it says off the top of my head.
8. This is the only thing I like about droids. You will see several folders, including "Pictures," "Videos," and "Music." Select Music.
9. Right click in the open space there under the music folder and simply select "Paste" in the drop down. Depending on how much music you have, this could take a number of minutes, and viola!! You're finished!! :)

If you need more assistance, ask any questions you need, or I can make up a video for you if it comes to it. I'm more than happy to help.
Hope you enjoy your new phone!

Won't work. ITunes only works with Apple hardware.

The folks who make the WinAmp media player for Windows, Mac and other platforms also make an Android version that not only syncs to the computer version (reliably via WiFi, unlike Apple's attempt to bring that functionality to iTunes/iOS which requires a bit of hardware and software hacking on the user's part), it also imports your iTunes music collection to your Android phone.

There are things that Android software and hardware does better than the iPhone. Like ... um, being a phone. Consider the problem where you had to hold your iPhone at certain places and not others or it'd mess up your phone signal.

Also, Android lets you use a third-party on-screen keyboard like the Swype keyboard, along with several others that implement the same functionality. I use the Touchpal X, which is awesome.

I just got my son the droid. I need to move his music over from his old phone to the new phone but I think his will be relatively easy. I am not upgrading the iphone until January now but I think I like that galaxy... I'm just not happy with my iphone....

2muchcoffeeman--That would be the carrier, not the phone.

No, it was the phone. Apple had to write a check to settle a lawsuit over the botched antenna design on the iPhone 4. (Granted, it was only $15 per customer, but it was Apple's way of admitting it botched the design. Apple's initial response in 2010 was, "Oh, we're sorry. Would you like a free iPhone case to make up for your phone not working?" )

^I never had the iPhone four. Only the five and I love it.
