Hi there;

I wonder how to download a simple mp3 file and listen in your iphone 3gs?

I don't mean syncing it from a computer, rather, just download a file from safari or so?

Kind regards.

Cant you just navigate to the web page that is hosting the mp3 and then download it to your phone, just like you would any other file?  Once it is downloaded, then can use the 3gs's inbuilt media player...

ok, funny thing is that I couldn't find an mp3 link to try.

Could you send me a link to try?

Kind regards (and funny I know).

No problem.  A general tip: when you are looking for files of a specific type, google for "index of" then the extension.  I did "index of" mp3, and it bought back a load of default index pages for servers which host mp3.
