    hi once again, my friend is thinking about getting an ipod touch but her parents will not allow her to plug it into their computer because they don't want itunes on it. is there a way she can put her songs on it without plugging it in? she does have wifi already. is there a way to put the songs on without using itunes, like using media player or somthing. please help! thanks

    if she jailbreaks then yea she can use dtunes from cydia. but when something goes wrong and she needs to restore, needs itunes. if a new update like 4.0 comes out, needs itunes. TO ACTIVATE THE IPOD, needs itunes. she will NEED itunes.

    Or she can just use someone else's (yours) computer to set it up, restore if she ever needs to, then she can sync her music using Windows Media Player on her computer.

    im pretty sure if her parents wont let her install itunes made by a big company then they definatley wont let her install a 3rd party program that theyve never heard of to jailbreak it

    Why won't they let her install iTunes? Are they anti-corporate or something?

    I'm sure her partents won't know any better if she installs iTunes to her user folder and doesn't create any shortcuts to it.

    she doesnt want to jailbreak it, she simply wants to know if she can put her songs on her ipod using media player, her parents do not like itunes
