    No. The terms of use for paid content are much more strict than those on freely-available content such as podcasts. There is currently no legal way of downloading music over cellular networks at standard prices. I don't think that Apple is lookng to alter their iTunes pricig structures.

    Not to totally hijack the thread, but do you care to elaborate? I've wondered about this myself but never knew the reason.

    If you load a page on the iTunes Store with wifi, then turn off wifi and go back to iTunes Store, your page will still be there and it's functional. I didn't try downloading anything though. Any thoughts?

    To sum it up, recording companies are Nazi ninjas. Why SHOULD they offer music over cell networks? That's almost as dangerous as DRM-free music on iTunes. Put both of those together and we have an apocalypse.

    Yep - I tried to download a track and got a message that purchases were 'unavailable'.
