    That's just it, I don't want to use a phone.

    My ipod is about 1"x2"x0.25" and fits in a pocket without being bulky or bouncing around while I workout, ski, or snowboard. I don't like the idea of wearing a strap/holder on my arm either. I'm fine using a phone for music in my car but would rather use something smaller/cheaper for everything else - which is why I'm so bummed that Apple quit making the Nano.

    I hear ya' about software not "finding" music. My itunes library shows lots of music that I uploaded from CDs (not purchased from i-store) that it won't load onto my devices because the files somehow disappeared.

    Microsoft Zune HD (16 gig), by far, the best sound of any mp3 player I have ever heard. I also push music through the stereo with my galaxy Tab A, 8 inch regularly.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    If there was a magic method to get all our purchased iTunes music onto a plain MP3 player as well as a non Apple Music app on an iPhone, I’d jump ship in a heartbeat. Our fault for diving into the purchased music as deep as we did. Ideally I’d just convert all to MP3 and use that method on our iPhones.

    In Apples favor, I did buy an album from Apple, had it sync via WiFi and show up on 2 computers and 3 devices, so that’s progress. Family Sharing seems to work

    Have been using a Clip for years. Attach to your bib shoulder strap (left strap for right-handers)and with a little practice replay or skipping becomes automatic.
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    Thanks and good to know.

    At some point and as I'm now reading, Apple stopped using DRM protection on it's music, I think around 2015, so anything purchased after is OK to transfer, anything prior, you would have to burn to CD than move. And there are so many good alternatives to iTunes, even on Apple devices, I may make the attempt.

    It's not that I'm a Luddite, I just don't have patience for those sorts of things. I can tell what's wrong when something mechanical isn't working and enjoy the troubleshooting process but when a computerized thing gets wonky I just throw up my hands and start swearing.

    Just because you won't listen to reason does not mean I have to listen to idiocy.
