Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
I see people listening to their music on their iPhones all the time. Did they buy this music or did they transferred from another device?
Hopefully you aren't confused by the previous answers. You really don't give much info, as in OS X version, what iOS version etc, but here is how iTunes works with your iPhone.
You should have a USB cable that charges your phone (and plugs into some sort of wall wort.
> Then plug your iPhone into your Mac. Once iTunes recognizes your iPhone, it will appear about half way down the side bar on the left. It will be listed under the DEVICES category.
> Click on the iPhone name on the left sidebar. Mine says "Kerry's iPhone". Once you have successfully clicked on the iPhone link on your Mac, you will see 3 sections, and a bar at the bottom that shows how much space you have and have left on your iPhone.
- 1st section is details about your phone.
- 2nd is BACKUPS. Since you aren't using your music on your iPhone yet, I would choose to backup your iPhone to "This Computer". I back up very little to the cloud, as I have teenagers and don't feel like paying a monthly storage fee, but you can choose to do this at any time.
- 3rd section is OPTIONS. I would check the 1st, 3rd, and 4th boxes for now (1-Auto sync when connected, 3-Sync only checked songs, 4-Prefer Std Def videos). Once you have your songs loaded on your phone, you probably want to check the second option to Sync over Wi-Fi, that way, as soon as you buy a new song on your Mac, it will automatically transfer to your phone.
> after you choose your options, click the Sync botton at the bottom left beside the storage graph-bar.
After the music has transfered, I would go up to the 2nd section, BACKUP, and choose to 'Back Up Now' towards the right under Manual Backup.
If you use the options above, you will not have issues with songs getting deleted from your account, (It's the #3 check box under OPTIONS - Sync only checked songs).
The Music App on your iPhone is RED, and will give you the option to play any music you have on the phone.
Now, enjoy your music. If you have kids or a spouse, 5 devices can share the same iTunes account. I can put any of my kids' songs onto my phone for Free, since they are all under my account.

I recommend that you do NOT list a credit card with your iTunes account. I do NOT attach a credit card to my iTunes account. This way the only money that can be spent has to be loaded through iTunes gift cards, and ensures no one is racking up expenses beyond what is already loaded on the account
All the best to you!

Use the power cord for the iPhone. It should be the USB connector on one end and the small plug on the other end. Plug the USB into the computer and open up iTunes. Under the FILE menu at the top, there should be a pull down sub menu that say "devices" SYNC.
Your iPhone will appear on the side bar once you switch to the "Playlist" page. You can drag a whole playlist into your phone icon or do individual tracks. At least, that's what I do.
Let me know if this works for you.

There are several ways to do this. You can follow the instructions in the following article to back up your iTunes library on CD/DVD:
Alternatively, you can use your iPod classic to transfer your music as per the instructions in the following article:
You can also transfer the contents of your iTunes library via a flash drive or external drive, simply copy My Documents / iTunes to your external hard drive / flash drive, transfer it to your Mac, and then drag and drop the entire iTunes folder onto the iTunes icon in the dock and it will automatically import all of your songs, settings, and playlists.
