It depends on when this music was purchased. Apple started to remove DRM from their music in early 2009, I believe. With a few exceptions, if your music was purchased before then, you won't be able to play it on your Infuse without paying a per-song fee to get the DRM-free version.
From here, I'll assume that your music is indeed DRM-free.
- Plug your phone into your computer's USB port.
- Unlock your phone and select "Mass storage."
- Tap "Connect USB storage."
- Wait for it to connect. Go to My Computer on a Windows Machine or Finder on a Mac.
- There should now be one or two drives mounted called "NO NAME." If you have an SD card inserted there will be two; if not, there will be one.
- If you want to store the music on your phone's internal storage, choose the one with 13.99 GB available. If you want to store in your SD card, double click on the other one.
- Create a folder named "Music" if one does not already exist.
- In iTunes, select the tracks/albums/whatever and drag them to your "Music" folder.
- Eject and unplug your phone. Your music should now be in your phone's "Music Player" application!
Hope that helps!

you can actually use doubletwist for free it is only 4.99 for the airsync feature
there is the amazon cloud drive as mentioned,
google music beta if you got an invite(kind of sucks lol i tried it for a few days i will check it again once they have a better layout)
or as jklitten said follow those steps and just copy the music to th e phone. All itunes music is now DRM free so you can continue to buy music there and just copy it to the phone.
You can also use dropbox to move the files over pending how big you music library is and how much space you have for dropbox this could take a while.Windows Phone:Lumia 920
Android: Nexus 4
iOS: iPhone 5

I told a friend that switched from an Iphone to the Infuse to use iSync. I dont know much about that since Ive never owned an Apple Product.Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

Re: music from Itunes?
Can you believe it I still cannot use Google Music?! It completely baffles me. I tried my Google Apps account and no luck. Then I went back to my Gmail account and the same problem persists. The app never remember my credentials. If I want to use Google Music I have to clear the cache and start it all over. Then if I close the app and goes back 2 hours later, it will have forgotten my credentials. I've tried just about everything I can and know what to do. Google help has been useless. I've deleted my accounts and only left the one with Google Music, but no luck.Egídio
