Default can I download music from itunes?

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to blackberry and want to go pick up the 8900 today. But the real make it or break it question is: Can I download music from itunes on the BB and put it on my PC's library? Or can I only download it to the BB and it stays there? This will determine if I buy one or not.
Thanks,
~L

Actually, if you're on OS 4.2 or greater you can download Blackberry Media Sync from the Blackberry site on your desktop. I have used it and it has been flawless so far. You can download anything from your Itunes library as long as it is not the Itunes coded music. I know some people rip the Itunes purchases on CD as MP3 and reload them to Itunes to get all of their music. I have no idea if you can upload the other way although I would suspect if the Blackberry is connected to the desktop it sees your media card as a storage device and you would simply upload files to Itunes as MP3s. Just a guess tho.

the OP is asking to get music from itunes ON the BB, not itunes on a PC TO a BB.

OP, you need an iphone.
