Do any music stores beyond iTunes exist that allow you to legally purchase content on an iPhone? That is to say, is it possible to purchase music without connecting to a computer? Streaming or downloading are both ok. Through an app or a website is also ok.

I haven't tried the service, it seems that Rhapsody does more or less what you are asking for -- a music store on the iPhone that is separate from iTunes.

I have used MOG on an iPod touch to download music from their library to my iPod Touch for offline listening. As I understand the contract, I do not own the content, only the right to listen to it during my contract term.

This and rhapsody both sound interesting, I'll check them out. Thanks for the recommendation. – Sk606 Dec 29 '10 at 19:28
Why the downvote? Something wrong with MOG? – Matthew Frederick Dec 30 '10 at 7:17
