The Laser offers limited music features, as if we didn't get the hint with its lack of a 3.5mm headset jack. First, there is the AT&T Music application. This is a subscription service that offers access to tracks, streams and other features. The Laser has AT&T Radio, which also requires a monthly subscription in order to access and stream radio stations. It also has a stand-alone music player, which is buried about as far into the Laser's menus as possible.
The player itself is a no-frills affair that has the same basic functionality seen across the board. Users can sort through albums, genres, artists, and songs. Users can set songs for shuffle and/or repeat. The one surprise is that the Laser offers a graphical equalizer for adjusting the tone of music playback. That's not a feature I expected to see on a phone that screams "not-really-meant-for-music."
If you want to listen to music, you'll need to provide your own microUSB-to-3.5mm adapter, or use stereo Bluetooth headphones. Neither is ideal. I tried stereo Bluetooth headphones, and they sounded OK.
