    Usually just plug the phone into the laptop, copy and paste. Most phones can act as a storage device.

    Not familiar with that phone ... Maybe google it & see what you come up with?

    I have an iPhone & I know I could use that as a an MP3 player but I need a credit card to put songs on it from the Internet :wall:

    Is there not somewhere on your phone that says "play music" or similar?

    Most Android phones come with an app called "Play Music." Look in your app list. The icon is yellow headphones.

    Plug phone into computer.
    When box comes up click open to view files.
    scroll until you find the folder marked music
    copy your mp3 files into that folder
    close all windows and unplug phone
    go to apps and find ya music player.
    this is the basic way to add music to any android phone

    Plug your phone in and there should be a file called "music" or something. Drag the music files in there and you should be set to go.

    You could also download spotify or pandora, there are ads but it's free to use.
