Creating an Offline Music Playlist on my iPhone

What sites do you use to create a Playlist on your iPhone?

I want to be able to listen offline (no data usage, no WiFi).

(I like to go on long hikes and music uses up most of my data in like a week)

Thanks for the suggestions!

    Old iPod? Purchase songs from the iTunes store?

    Do you subscribe to Prime? If so, you can make your own play list and download most songs for playback while not connected.

    I know I'm late, but I use Google Play. You can get a membership ($10.00 a month, plus a free trial) and you ca download an unlimited amount of songs.

    I just download stuff from iTunes and transfer it to my phone...

    You can also download it straight to your phone via the music app, which offers a 3 month free trial. So, do the trial, get a bunch of songs, and enjoy.

    If I can't buy a song and download a file, I rip it from YouTube.

    But I buy off iTunes if I can.

    Plenty of apps do it, it's just that a lot of people got used to streaming everything since they had big data plans.

    I've always preferred to just download/rip my music to the computer and then make playlists and such there since it's quicker with a mouse and keyboard. Then I just sync what I want to my phone. SD cards are dirt cheap these days, so you can put a LOT of music on a phone for different moods.

    Another interesting thing about long hikes and phones is that when the cell reception is bad, your battery drains faster. This may be no surprise to anyone, but it was news to me.

    I had brought my phone to the Apple store for a new battery, but the guy tested it and said it was fine. We ascertained that I was having problems with battery life after using it to listen to the radio while hiking in areas with bad reception or listening to podcasts in my car. So instead of a new battery, I bought a car charger, and my problem was solved.
