How Do I Transfer MP3 Files To My US Cellular SCH-I225 (Exec) Phone?

The SCH-I225 (Exec) features four methods for having supported audio files, including MP3 files, transferred to it.

    The media player on the SCH-I225 (Exec) handset does not necessarily support all features of a particular file format nor all the variations of those formats. The media player includes support for Digital Rights Management (DRM) which allows you to play some purchased or subscription content. This copyright protection may prevent some images, music (including ringtones), and other content from being copied, modified, transferred, and/or forwarded to other devices.
