    No need to be connected to a computer. You can purchase via 3G or wifi.

    Sure you can. Just either tap on the song or long tap. There should be an option to "buy". If the "buy" option is blacked out, then the song is not available for purchase.

    Nope. Running an Arrive on NoDo.

    Open Music + Video Hub-> hit search hardware button->Type "Pink Floyd"-> Select an album-> Tap and hold Album/Song you wish to purchase -> Tap "Buy"

    Presto.

    Actually I am pretty sure It is US only, I didnt see he was from Montreal...so my guess is that's the issue. You might be able to change the region in the settings to make the device think its in the US, not positive I feel like I have read about people doing this.

    It's not mango only thing, Se1fcr3ation. You have a Canadian account most likely, since you're from Montreal. The music marketplace is only open to American accounts. So if you have an American account, you can purchase music.

    When Mango is released, I believe the music marketplace will be open to more countries though.

    EDIT: I guess the music marketplace is open to more countries..? "You can buy music from Zune Marketplace in the following countries/regions: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and United States." -Source

    I know lots of non-USers are frustrated with Microsoft over the lack of support. Hopefully that changes down the road. I know it's probably difficult to negotiate licensing with the music industry and that's probably why there's no music marketplace for Canada.

    Here is the chart which shows availabilities for countries:
    Availability of Zune software and services by location

    But it shows Canada having the Zune Marketplace...? Maybe you have to wait till Mango comes out for this to take affect.

    That's lame that you don't get it in Canada

    Just FYI though, you don't need a Zune Pass to purchase songs. Zune Pass is for unlimited streaming and 10 songs per month DRM free downloads (to keep).

    You can purchase music directly on the phone. Just long press on the song you want and it will pop up with an option to buy. It downloads just like an app or game. As a matter of fact, there is a free song available on the marketplace today, its by Black Tide and called That Fire. Test it out.
