How do you transfer your music from iTunes to your iPhone. Will it not let me do it like my iPod? I have my albums loaded into iTunes but when I sync it doesn't load them onto my iPhone. It says it's syncing, albums are checked but nada.

With the iPhone connected, did you go to iTunes to the MUSIC tab and select "Sync Music" and check which songs, playlists you want to sync with the phone? That should fix your problem.

You have to define one or more Playlists in iTunes and put albums/songs into them. Then select which playlists are to be sync'd onto your iPhone and then hit the Sync button.

How do you select which playlists to be synced?

Is there a tutorial for how to transfer songs?

I have several albums under my Library > Music. Shouldn't those just SYNC with my iPhone if all the songs are checked when I click SYNC?

So I created a new Playlist called Albums and put several albums in there. All the songs are checked.

Then I go to my iPhone then Music then SYNC and it says SYNCING but no music transfers.

Connect iPhone

Go to iTunes and click on your iPhone name on the left under the DEVICES tab

Click the MUSIC tab and select "Sync Music" and check either ALL SONGS AND PLAYLISTS or SELECTED PLAYLISTS and choose which playlists you want to sync with the phone

Then click Sync

Transfer music

I have that checked, and still unable to transfer music to it. Has a big circle with a cross threw it.
First you must create playlists, copy selected music into each playlist. You can sync all or selected playlists.

When u dock you phone and load up iTunes there should be a music tab in the middle near the top of the screen. Click that tab and select sync music and all songs and playlists. Then click the sync button on the bottom right hand of the screen. Try that.
