    Hi, I need a new cell phone, and I am thinking of buying the 8130 with Verizon. I don't really want to use it as a blackberry, but I do like the form factor, the size, and the fact that it can hold music with it's MicroSD slot.

    Does anybody here have a 8130? Is it any good? Can I put music from iTunes on it? Thanks!

    You can't put music on any un-Apple device that you bought in iTunes. (Unless its DRM free)

    I don't buy from iTunes, I just buy albums in person.

    Do I need to use Windows Media Player?

    Uh, no you can use iTunes if you want.
    Really a personal preference.

    But, seeing as how you've said "Should I use Windows Media Player instead?" I'm going to assume, you're on Windows. So it should be no problem syncing with a BlackBerry.

    If you're on a Mac, I head that you can't sync Blackberries with OS-X.

    I have a MacBook Pro with both Leopard and Windows Vista Home Premium, I would prefer for it to work on Mac OS X, but if it can't, that is a bummer.

    I'm pretty sure there is a hack/way to do it, I just don't know of it.

    PocketMac for Blackberry works just fine. You can sync DRM-free music from your iTunes library, and sync iPhoto libraries. Plus, it's a free download on the BB website.

    What he said. Also with VZW, you have to have the BB Data Plain, if you don't want to pay that. I suggest a different phone.
