Does Amazon know we're both listening, and disapprove?

I put an mp3 album I bought from Amazon on my Android phone and happily listened to it for more than a week. Then, my husband put a copy on his Blackberry also. Now the album has disappeared from my phone's native music player's list. How did this happen? Is the Android music player somehow "playing nice" with Amazon...? The folder of files is still there on my phone when I view files through the computer, but the Music player does not show it either by album, artist or song titles. Neither of us has the "Amazon mp3 app" on our devices, though I do have the Kindle app on mine. [more inside]

Cell Signal Boost Out of the Valley

The only un-awesome thing about my new apartment near Tempe, AZ is that neither I nor my roommates are receiving any signal strength on our cell phones due to the low mountains surrounding our location. We all have differerent providers (T-Mobile, Verizon, & AT&T) and not a lot of money. Please help me find a cellular signal booster that doesn't cost an arm and a leg or more than $100. I don't even know how to begin.

Buying a pre-paid cell phone in Delhi, India

My wife is traveling to India later this month. She'll be in the mountains, where there are few landlines, but from her experience last time there is sufficient (if spotty) cell phone service. Wikitravel says: "Fully loaded prepaid starter kits are available for around Rs. 500 or less" (plus more details). Does anyone have experience buying a pre-paid mobile phone like this in India? Can she do it at the Delhi airport? Is it a hassle, or is it worth it?
