Can you copy music to Icloud from your PC without Itunes? I haven't used the latest version.

There are a lot more reasons to but here isn't the place for that.
I already touched on the other reasons.

I'm personally all in with iPhone, although the newer android phones are better then in the past. About half my family and friends are android ppl the other half apple.

A lot like choosing a gun, getting opinions online is ok but you really need to take the time to go visit your carriers store and hold and interact both products and see them up close and decide for yourself.

Both android and apple are pushing each other to provide better products.
IMO if were to go android it'd be a samsung phone. Samsung and Apple are top notch, the rest are distant 2nd, like said windows phones are garbage.

Not only can you sync the music from the phone to the cloud, if you have music on the computer that's not synced to the phone you can download the iTunes Match plug in and sync the computers music to the cloud as well.

I upgraded from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S4. I can replace my battery quickly, use a removable SD Memory card for increased storage, receive FM radio., better camera and effects, a blue tooth that works, excellent graphics and battery life. So long iPhone...

My wife has an Iphone, that she likes very much,, she has it linked up with her laptop and main host computer. When she uses it at home, she runs off the computer's router to save on her data plan and when we are traveling, she'll use it at places that offer free wifi,,, it is handy with her apps to find the best gas prices in the area and I'm sure the other smart phones have similar features,,, I have enough trouble messing with my old cell phone, it has stuff on it I have never even tried using,,, I just never cared much for all the new technology and devices.

I only have a laptop and a desk top computer. No tablets, ipads, etc. I probably wouldn't be putting music on it but I would definitely want wi-fi. After reading all this, maybe I'll just stick to my dumb phone. I don't even know what you guys are talking about. I don't know what a "cloud" is and I don't think I'd be able to 'sync my computer music to the cloud'. What the hell does THAT mean?

But I do text a lot and I like my qwerty keyboard. Don't smart phones have touch screen keyboards? Yeah, maybe I'll just get another dumb phone.

Try to find one which doesn't have control

buttons which are positioned on the

part of the phone you hold, to talk on the phone.

Like on/off and volume buttons,on the side of the

phone, are a BAD IDEA.

OBVIOUSLY, I can't recommend MY phone, sorry.

Do yourself a solid and at least speak to someone at your carriers store and educate yourself.

Once you make the switch and find the things that can assist you on a daily basis you'll wonder how you lived without it.

Wasn't it you who didn't like guns and such until you got a lil education on them? Well now look at ya!
