How to Play iTunes Radio on an iPhone

By Mandy Slake

The iPhone version of iTunes does not give you the option of playing Internet radio stations on your phone. However, you can still get your iTunes radio stations on the go. Get around the lack of Internet radio using the iPhone's Safari browser. You create a bookmark for the station in your computer's Web browser, then sync the bookmark over into the iPhone. Open the bookmark in the iPhone's browser, and you can listen to your Internet radio just like you were on your computer.
