T-Mobile Favouritsm

I awoke this morning to be greeted with the cheery message that I had got 5 free song downloads from the T-mobile Mobile Jukebox. Unfortunately my girlfriend, who has the same phone and T-mobile contract, was not greeted with the same message. For some reason I got the distinct feeling that she felt that I was to blame for such favouritism. Thank you T-mobile.

It’s the first time that I have used the T-mobile Jukebox, but I can understand why people do. It’s so quick and simple you find yourself tempted to buy songs that you already have on CD just so you don’t have to go through all the hassle of uploading them to your computer before putting them on your phone. Unfortunately it failed to fill in all the song details correctly on my N95, so they are currently listed as artist and album unknown.

The big limitation I found was that my N95 didn’t seem to want to let me set any of the songs as a ringtone, which was a bit of a shame as I had always wanted Amy Winehouse’s Rehab as my ringtone. That the songs are only valid to be played 2 billion times on the phone seems less of a problem.

Have T-mobile persuaded me that I should be downloading all my music to my phone? Personally I will be waiting for Nokia’s “comes with music” package rather than paying for individual songs.
