How do I use Spotify (free) on my iPhone?

Hi everyone, I am new to using Spotify, but I had my iPhone since last year. I don't have the iPhone 4S. I actually have the Verizon iPhone 4, it's an older version. It came in 16GB, and 32GB in Black, or White. I do have the latest iOS which is iOS 5.1. I downloaded Spotify from the app store for free, and I signed in using my Facebook. I would like to listen to music for free since I love music. Honestly, I don't know how to use it. I opened up Spotify, and I did a search for something I like such as 80s, and all results for 80s was greyed out even the shuffle. So, I clicked on a single song, and I get some kind of message stating something like I need a premium account. I thought Spotify offers free accounts as well? How can I play music? I would like to play the entire songs, or even a entire album. Would this be possible based on my account? If so, how can I make it possible? Thank you if someone could help me! I appreciate it!

You need a premium account to listen on mobile devices. Free accounts only work on the desktop app. See this page for information about the different account types: https://www.spotify.com/us/get-spotify/overview/

Thank you very much! That info was very helpful. I guess if I want to use Spotify for free then I have to use my PC? That is cool. I can certainly try that.

Yes, for free it's only available on the downloaded software for your desktop(s). If you make playlists beforehand, these will be automatically added and synchronized on your mobile devices once you go PREMIUM.

Most of your local files can be synced through Spotify onto your iPod too. However, tracks from the Spotify catalogue would be unable to be synced on iPod Classic, Shuffle and Nano devices.

You can use spotify on your iPhone w/o using the premium.  I downloaded the app and use it everyday.  Free version
