I mean, if you can get a cheap iPod (or other music playing device) I would just give in. I'm pretty sure with recent OS's you don't have to use the awfulness known as iTunes to sync your music.
I never put music on my phone. Consumes too much space. My Honda is pretty nice. I just plug my iPod into the USB port and it syncs up and plays it.
