Hello, I am Mary and I am from 1990. I still use my 2 Ipod Nanos when I work out. I would like to start using my Samsung Note to listen to music.

I know I can figure out how to transfer my music from my Ipods to my computer to my phone, that's a whole other mountain I need to climb someday.

For now, I'm thinking of starting out by using YouTube, although I'm so afraid it will eat up all my data on a single walk - ??

Can you give me some other suggestions of ways to listen to music on my phone, maybe download a playlist or something so it doesn't eat up my data?

The YouTube ads will drive you crazy. I'm in IT and up on technical things but I don't actually USE any mobile stuff personally. Not for entertainment anyway. I suspect most people you see listening to music at the gym are not streaming data but are using playlists. I could be wrong. Live365 have pretty good stations you can stream and they have bandwidth options. Others use Pandora, GrooveShark, LAST FM. It can't be all that difficult to get your playlists off your Nano's.

If your gym has wifi, try using an online music app. Some are merely apps that allow you to select traditional radio stations. Some are subscription based services like Pandora. What's good about Pandora is if a song comes on that you don't like, you can thumbs down click the song and it'll instantly skip the song and not play it for you again. If you select thumbs up, it'll use your selection to better pick songs to play for you.

Don't use youtube as video takes up much higher rate of bandwidth, use an audio only service like Pandora.

Spotify is cheap every month and they have music pretty much the day it comes out. You can download a playlist you make so you can play it offline and not use any data. Then you can log in on a computer and use the same account to listen that way.
