    So….. how do I get my music into the Samsung. Kind of seems like that might have been included in your instructions.

      To transfer from music from Windows/Linux PC, connect your phone to PC in MTP mode. Your PC will recognize your phone as storage media. Now you can use File Manager to copy your music to the phone.
