Just got a bb 8900 with T-Mobile. Trying to figure out how to download my iTunes onto it. Can someone please outline the steps I need to take. Thank you.

Just put the phone in Mass Storage Mode (you need to have a Media Card installed). Then using the File Browser on your computer to copy the songs over.

Note that the BlackBerry will not play protected content. So songs with DRMs cannot be played.

O opened the phone and there is a card that says SAND 1GB. Is that the media card? If so, still not sure how to download iTunes.

Yes, that will be the media card. You may want to get a larger card, depending upon now much music you have within Itunes / or want to have on your phone. They (4GB,8GB cards) are quite cheap nowadays, from eBay.

Another method for getting iTunes content onto your phone is to use the Blackberry Media Sync program - just google it for the download link. I use it and it works well.

Hope that helps.
