Default Options for downloading music?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently got a BB and would like to download some music to it. I tried a few searches and did not find much on this topic. If anyone can help me on what options there are out there for downloading music from I would appreciate it? I used to download off of kazaa a long while ago but figured there is probably some better site now? Thanks!

I assume you don't use itunes and burn the music to a cd.
Did you check Napster pay site?

I am just looking for the easiest way to download songs from the internet and put them on my BB. I don't mind paying for the music I just don't know what sites are good. I read itunes downloads need to be converted to play on a BB. Is this easy to do or is there a better site with less hassle than itunes?

I know of some sites that do not charge as much as iTunes (.99). (Think 2.13 for entire albums at 320kbpm)

If I were at my home PC I'd be able to e-mail you some links, unfortunately I do not know them off the top of my head.

The problem with p2p networks is that most of the time the music sounds like crap, or it's just a junk file. I rather pay for my music, even if it's not via iTunes.
