MP3 players can play multiple formats (ipod can play AAC, MP3; Creative Zen can play MP3 and WMA, etc), why can't the phone player?

Because Microsoft insisted that the VCast Music-capable phones play only WMA (since that's Microsoft's own audio format), an' like a bunch of chuckleheads, Verizon went along with it. Sad
