I think on the latest versions of Kies you can import your itunes data.

As for downloads, I don't know what you can use. I usually buy CDs and rip them to my PC.

I had to manually drag all my music out of iTunes into a folder and then drag it to the sd card. I never added anything new again once I got it all on there, definitely wasn't a convenient option.
I switched back to iPhone just recently.

I just got an s3 too, we used an app called easy phone sync

On a side note, what do you think of the battery life? I think its a bit poor that I have to turn off bluetooth (which I need for driving) and wifi which I need for internet (the whole reason I got this phone) im order to get a days worth. Lets just say im not impressed with the s3 so far, that is except for the maps  they are FANTASTIC!!!

Mousky I might give that a go.. its a pain though isnt it!!

Not impressed with the battery life at all, I opted for the samsung over the iphone this time because the lady at optus told me it had more battery life... what a load of bs lol

I found the battery life pretty bad too but I did find it improved slightly when I flashed the firmware to a stock firmware instead of the Optus one. This got rid of the Optus start up screen, Optus apps and any other changes they'd made to it.
Also if its the LTE version you can turn LTE off and just use 3G. That alone will improve battery life.
I have to say though the iPhone 5 I have now, even with everything turned on, lasts double the time what my S3 did between charges. I was charging that by midday after taking it off charge around 6am. I take the iphone off at 6am and put it back on late that night at bed time (11pm or later) even then there is still at least 20%+ left on the battery.

There is a great app called iSynchr, you also download to your computer and it basically tricks iTunes into thinking you have an i product and you can sync and transfer files to your S3 as you would normally.

And try dimming your screen brightness to help with battery life.

Also for battery life hold down your home button until the task manager comes up and exit any active apps.

also turn off location stuff until you need it (GPS and wireless).

I have an S2. I just plug the phone in, open the phone folder and copy and paste my music files and folders over?
Saves me the mucking around with other programs. Would Kies not do it though?

I always shut down open programs to save the battery, I kerp nothing open that im nit using.

I dont have gps on and need wireless as I purchased the phone mainly fir tge internet.  Im so p*ssed with thid phone, a quad core processor was billed as the best, fastest internet processor aroynd. Its SOOO slow.  I use my home internet, so no chage  there.

For those with battery problems, download advanced task killer from the App Store, this will kill any apps from running in the background while you aren't using them.    You can choose which ones you want to run all the time. Also found a great app, called bedside buddy, it turns off all notification sounds while you sleep ( you can set the times), so ou don't need to put your phone on silent  so you can still get your alarms.
