I've got a Nokia 6121 on Vodafone and have downloaded a lot of music to my microSD card. I'm looking at upgrading to another Nokia (maybe the E5-00), but can I still play my music off the card if I transfer it over, or is the music/licence tied to the phone, or the number, or...?

If it's downloaded from Vodafone live (depending) how long ago, You can log in and download a mp3 copy that does not require a licence key to your PC then move it onto your phone or any other device you like.

Thanks John, I'll take a look.
Just out of interest, if I simply transfer the microSD card from my old phone to my new one, that won't work in the new one eh?

I am sure it will be DRM locked

Well I changed to the E5 (as you know). Most of my music went over, but about 10 songs are showing up as "locked". Since I paid for them is there any way I can unlock them, or is this just tough luck and I have to download them and pay for them again? I hope not :(

As above log into Vodafone music store and download the mp3 version (not DRM locked) and move it over to your handset via Nokia PC suite

Cheers John :) I think some of my songs are too old though...this only seems to go back to a year. Oh well.
