    I'm listening to itunes radio on itunes 11.1, my question is: what is the difference between having music you bought before this came out vs. the radio stations you made. Couldn't you save space on your phone for apps, photos, etc if the ios7 has the same thing?

    iTunesRadio is streamed from Apple... vs playing what's locally stored on a phone. IF you're streaming over cellular, beware of blowing through any data caps your carrier plan may have... playing from locally stored music evades that data use...

    I agree with that... I used 90 MB in about 1 hour over 3G..

    It doesn't. And nowhere did I say it did. Using Radio, or any other streaming service does. Playing locally stored music does not.

    iTunes Radio is essentially like Pandora. It's streaming music from a server. Whether you're using it on your phone or computer. If you're playing music from your existing music library, then, you're not "streaming." You're playing music already locally stored.

    I'm trying to understand my tech terms. Locally meaning YOUR iphone? Locally music does NOT use data, RADIO DOES?

    Radio uses data. Locally is music that is already downloaded to your iPhone or computer.

    Why would you want to use the radio outside of Wifi

    Some do. Especially with an unlimited data plan... some just don’t think about the consequences... it’s one of the reasons Apple and the carriers limit the size of app downloads over cellular... to avoid irate customer complaints about data charges. It’s a fine line between allowing the customer to use their device their way and protecting them from themselves... danged if you do and danged if you don’t.

    I have unlimited data myself. I hope I stay grandfathered in for ever with AT&T. I just wondered about the radio question

    I have 6 GB of data so iTunes Radio isn't a problem over 3G but since I live in Canada I have to login to my US iTunes account to use it so I'll be waiting until the "iOS 7 compatibility" app updates slows down before I use it again

    In addition to being US only (for now I believe) it's not standalone. I had a hard time finding that it was in the Music app.

    First of all, it’s a US only thing at this point due to music licensing... if you’re in the US, then go to your Music app...

    Open the Music app and look in the bottom left corner. It should have five softkeys: Radio, Playlists, Artists, Songs, and More.
