    Dang. Not getting my Droid MAXX till Black Friday.

    Wonder if I can trick it to give me 6 months with my current phone. It's still a Motorola phone :-)

    [Edit] oops, doesn't matter anyway since it is now the 16th.

    I guess you could have put your google account onto a demo device at the store and then erase it later... haha

    It is an option in the playlist menu. Press the three dots for any play list and then select "keep on device". You will see a push pin there as well, it was formally called pin to device.
    Is this in "my library?"

    I don't see a way to save certain songs but albums are possible. Once you search for an artist or album it will show all of the album arts. This is where you select the 3 dots button and select Keep on Device.

    Or you can select an album and tap the PIN icon as shown here.

    I've tried pinning a couple of albums, but I can't find the actual files anywhere on my phone.

    Where are they supposed to be stored?

    The albums go to your library once their pinned. I just pinned the new Alter Bridge album "Fortress" and as you can see its in my library.

    But the original question was can you put the songs on your phone so you don't use data. Where are they on the phone?

    Of course you can drag songs to storage if you connect the phone via USB, but can you download songs from within the Google Play Music app - either songs/albums you've uploaded to Google music from your pc or songs/albums from all access?

    Yes, the Alter Bridge album is pinned to my phone for offline use. I don't own this album; its part of Google Play. When I turn off all radios you can see this album is still available for usage.

    Just signed up for this. Is there a way to put the songs on the phone so when I play the songs it doesn't use data?

    Yes there is. Google "how to pin google music to my phone" and there should be several posts about this. I'm away from my devices now or I would walk you through it.

    They're probably encrypted on your device so as to prevent someone from pinning every song and copying it off the phone. I'm sure if you dig around you will be able to figure out where the app stores (or caches) the files, though.

    Gah, I don't know why I hadn't thought of trying that! Thanks.

    After further investigation, all of the music that I've uploaded to Google Music is also available offline as well. What's weird is that when you go into settings and tap your Google account, Play Music is not listed as one of the things that you can turn syncing on and off.

    Makes sense to me. I'm wondering if it's in the /data partition, in the storage for the app, because there is nothing evident in the psuedo-SD card. I don't feel like rooting to find out, though.

    Alter Bridge, hey. I listened to this on Spotify and wasn't all that impressed. Alter Bridge is one of those bands that everybody else likes but just doesn't appeal to me. Same thing with the new Dark Tranquillity album. I just don't get why everybody and their brother thinks this band is so great.

    I'm a huge Linkin Park fan but Alter Bridge is good. The song that had me hooked on the new album was "Addicted to Pain" and that's why I listened to the album. Can't wait for Recharge by LP at the end of the month.

    I ran into the same issue with my new Droid Maxx. Since I already had an account, and had just recently activated the free trial offer it wouldnt offer me the 6 months free no matter what I tried.
    Finally, I switched my google music app to a different gmail account (my spam account, which also syncs to my phone). After doing that, I clicked the link in the verizon text, went into the app/ settings/try it free, and the verizon 6 month offer was there waiting. Beautiful!

    PS. I didnt by my Maxx until early december so the deal is still out there apparently.

    I picked up my Maxx on Tuesday and it never occurred to me to ask about the 6 months free google music all access that was announced to come with the droid line of phones. I never did see anything in the box about it. Did I overlook it? Don't think I've seen anyone mention it in the other threads.

    Also, I don't know if it makes a difference but I already subscribe to the service.

    Edit: Just saw in another thread current subscribers were having the same questions. Let us know if you find the answer!
