How to Download iTunes to iPhone 3G

By Mario Calhoun

The iPhone 3G allows you to download music and music videos directly from the iTunes Store app on your iPhone. Due to the heavy data use for larger files such as movies and TV shows, you'll need to have Wi-Fi enabled on your iPhone 3G before you can download these items directly to your iPhone. Purchasing and downloading media from iTunes requires an active iTunes account that has a credit or debit card attached to it. Alternatively, you can also sync your iPhone 3G with the iTunes program on your computer via a USB cable.
