    I must be the dumbest person on the planet. I finally learned how to get my mp3's onto my droid.

    Problem is... when I play a song, there is no stop button, only a pause button. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the song to stop playing. I finally had to power off the phone.

    What am I doing wrong? How do you turn the music player off?

    Thanks in advance!

    The music player is "off" when the music is paused and the app is exited.

    There is no ACTUAL stop button for the music. Just press pause and exit the music application.

    This is supposed to be fixed by adding a stop button on the Dec 11 update.

    Nice find -- skipped over that one in the Documentation on the update.

    Strange that they are going to change that since its been like since 1.1 on the TMobile G1.

    I was updated Dec 11, but don't see any Stop button for ending the music. Doesn't matter much I guess, now that I am accustomed to hitting pause. BTW, Droid is my first smartphone, and I find I've been downloading from my favorite radio station with Shazam ... and haven't gotten around to transferring songs from my iTunes collection ! I love using Instant Lyrics app too.

    if you pause it and go back to the home screen, or back out to the home screen, the music player is still active in the background if you go to manage applications.

    i just use taskkiller to completely stop it.

    to actually clear the music in question you have to select the playlist button. Its the button which looks likes 3 or more lines. Once selected hit the menu button and select clear que or playlist depends on which player you have, viola its done.

    Just got my MotoDroid last week and am wondering are we getting a stop button or not?
    Also why does the player not alow you to listen just one song and quit. Why does it play all?

    Also how do i share music or ringtones from phone to phone?

    Thanks

    Thanks so much on this one latiff!! My wife and I just got our Droids last night and that was the first (and only) frustration we both found with it. Aside from that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this phone!! Now you've eliminated the one thing we had a problem with! I was a loyal Blackberry user and I'm pretty sure I'm a convert! ;)

    Well, I must be stupider than the stupidest person in the world who started this thread.

    I just started using an Rugby Smart, 2.3.6 Gingerbread, put music on for the firs time, and NONE of the above advice applies or works. There is no pause button,
    no exit button, no option in any menu or settings... it's absurd..

    I came from a Nokia Symbian flip smart phone and it seems like light years ahead of this nonsense in comparison. Do you mean I really have to shop, search, and download apps, or write my own, just to provide a stop and play button? Really?

    I have to go online and do google searches to figure out how to stop the music? Really?

    Seems like everything I try to do on this wastes another hour of time.. unbelievable...

    What carrier are you using? I've literally never heard of the phone you're using.
