Re: Use spotify myself
I have Deezer on my phone - music I obtain that way is effectively trapped on my phone, unless I go jumping through a number of hoops to free it. CDs play on any CD-player I choose to use, and DRM-free mp3s (legitimately obtained, or ripped from the CD*) play everywhere else.
If Tesco sold me a steak, but insisted I could only eat it in-store, with a knife and fork rented from them, I don't think I'd buy that steak**. I've never purchased anything through Deezer, and I would think twice about paying for their service if I wasn't getting it free with my sim contract.
*I'm reasonably sure that home-taping hasn't killed music
**I'm quite aware that this is a crap analogy - restaurants are a fine thing, and food only gets eaten once.
