Default Music on a Cell Phone

OK, so this might be a dumb question, but I would like to listen to music from my cell phone. However, being "chronologically gifted" there are some limitations.
1. I have a limited data plan , so I do not want to stream.
2. I have a bunch of "old music" on CD's. Can these be converted to maybe MP3 format and stored on my phone?
3. What apps would you recommend? either to convert CD or purchase new music and store to phone.
4. My phone is a Samsung S9+.
5. Other options?

You should be able to burn your cds onto a flash drive then upload them onto your phone. Then open these files in an app to play them.... Not sure what app does that but there's gotta be one out there somewhere!!

The more pressing issue here is if you seriously really have a cell phone. Lol. No they can't play music.

Cricket unlimited everything plan at $25/mo + Spotify Premium at $10-15/mo depending on your plan will be the easiest way to get what you want.

Thanks , I was able to simply burn the files to the library, then sync to my phone. I found an app on the google play store called Music Play 2021. This is what I was looking for.

Anymore I never seem to be anywhere without Wifi, $200/yep unlimited in my F250. I pretty much stream Pandora all of the time.

Man, I'm sure behind times. I still use a thing called a "radio" for music.

Use Spotify, then while you are connected to wifi download the albums that you want to listen to. Im sure you can convert all of your old Cds to MP3s but why would you want to spend all that time?

You can make a playlist on Spotify and download it to your phone so that it doesn't need internet connection to listen too.

I also use an S9+ and listen to music all the time. What I did was the following:

Download the app Audify Music Player onto your phone.
Take all your CD's and download them to MP3 files on your computer.
Connect your phone to your computer and download all those music files onto your phone.
I have mine on the external mini-SD card I have for my phone.

It is as easy as that and when you want to add more music in the future just do the same thing. I keep a folder called "Music" on my computer and then have subfolders under that for each musician and album.

Having said that I made what I consider a big evolutionary leap in my life last week. I threw away ALL my DVD's and CD's. 3 full 100 page flipbooks of them. I'm all digital baby!!!

Yes, I still have an AT&T which works pretty well for me and the wife. I have looked into changing, but some of the areas I go, there is an uncertainty on reception. Since I virtually never go over and the price is right, we just have stuck with what we got. But thanks to all who gave some useful comments.

I have a number of cd's that I want on my phone and will probably store to the micro sd. But I will look into spotify as well.

We did that with our CD's several years ago. I don't know how many we had but it was two of those tall floor stand racks with two sides to each rack. Before we got rid of them I downloaded them to an external hard drive. Now, when I want some new music to listen to I just go onto my hard drive and download some new songs onto my phone.

I also downloaded a bunch onto a jump drive that I plug into the USB slot in my truck. I listen to that more than I do Sirius XM unless I am listening to the news.

Me too!! I still think it is the best way to discover new music, catch some oldies that I haven't heard in a long time and forgot about, and the DJ's can be entertaining.

OP, I have a limited data plan as well. I stream 100% of the time, except for podcasts that I download. I never go over 2 GB data in a month.

Spotify. Use the free subscription. Good to go.

After I read this post I checked my data usage, too, because lately I've streamed a lot from Spotify. This is what I found, too. No changes in usage pre-Spotify to post Spotify.

Thanks, good to know. In the last few days, I have swapped the micro SD card in my phone. I have converted (ripped to the computer, and then synced to phone) about 10 old CD's .

I have put in a 128 g sd card and this is tons of storage. Plus I plan on sending a lot of my photos here as well.

But I will probably try Spotify as well.
