Default Music on your cell phone...

Why?

I was just sitting here watching a commercial from Verizon about being able to download music to your phone. You can even rip it from your collection.

My question is WHY? Why would you want mp3's on your phone? So you can listen to them through cheap tiny mono speaker?

Is this really cool or is it just something that the marketing companies have made cool?

I'm sorry, but right now I feel about as in with today's trends as :gman:

Actually, the point is listening to your music through the headphones. Instead of carrying my Ipod and my mobile phone, I have an abbreviated collection of music loaded onto my phone for those moments at the Dr's office. Beats carrying two devices...

My wife does it. She got a head set so she can listen to music at work. It really sounds as good as any other head set I have heard. My phone even has an FM radio in it but I have never used it.

i hear the lovely urbanites walking around campus all the time trying to blare their hip hop and zap on their cell phones all the time and it sounds horrible. theres a reason why i have a ipod nano, and i don't plan on using my phone for music.

It doesnt interst me ... for the music to be worth anythign you have to have headphone with you (i hate ear bud ones).

I dont see it as any real advance untill they have a cell phone with about a 30 gig mp3 player and a pda/planner in one unit. That i would buy.

start saving you pennies. i give it another 6-8 months and they'll be there. they already have really elaborate pda/cell phones. adding a harddrive and decent sound quality is one conveyor belt away.
