Rocking down the street, feeling the music move you, you might draw some stares, but they don't understand the pulse of the beat in your blood. For you, a phone isn't really a phone until the music is pumping. The Samsung Galaxy S phone from T-Mobile has room for all of your music and more. You can even download songs straight to the phone over a wireless data connection. Don't let the concert stop just because you're away from home, download music on the fly and keep the good times rolling.
