I've just bought the Huawei NXT-L29, 64G phone and I'm up to the stage of transferring my music. My question is, how do I put my iTunes tracks onto the Android?

Most iTunes songs these days do not have DRM. You wont be able to take them off your phone as the transfer was never meant to work that way. I believe you need to download iTunes to your computer and request of them a re-download of all your previously purchased content - because you've lost a device or something. You then take those AAC-non-DRM tracks and add them to your new phone.

You'll only be able to transfer files ending in the extension "m4a". Tracks ending with the extension "m4p" have DRM file protection so they can't be "illegally shared" and have only ever been able to work with Apple devices, save for a few hacks along the way.

Thanks Sam, all my tracks are on my computers already, so I'll hope all of them come across.

Even the tracks with DRM can be converted to MP3 format through iTunes, and then copied across to your new phone.

Congratulations on your awakening from the Apple mass-hypnosis!

Thanks! I must say that I was a dinosaur in any case (iPhone 4s), but while it kept working, I was happy with it. I converted because a) my daughter broke her phone (she can have my old one), and b) I was sick of swapping sims! So I found myself in the Huawei shop in Vision City in POM thinking ... "I really need this"! ;)

Now I have to say that I'm wrapped with this phone. It's a dream to use and so easy and here I am sitting in Cairns (DoubleTree has looked after me again :cool:), receiving calls on my Amaysim SIM as well as my Digicel SIM! I never thought I'd be excited about a bloody phone!

Forgot to mention that the case of this phone is greAt. It interacts with the phone and even has an active window and I do like the ribbon info. I can easily see if I'm on 4G and the signal strength of both SIMs
