WMA to MP3

Quick question, does anyone know of a freeware program that will convert wma's to mp3's with ease, must be very user friendly (this will be for a buddy of mine who doesn't know jack bout computers).
Thanks in advance

this isn't going on an MP3 player.
Me and him have the same phone Nokia 6265i (http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/6265i)
and it will not play wma's.

GoldWave, but it's not freeware, will do batch conversions. Audacity is freeware, but I haven't found a batch conversion feature on/for it yet.

The main stipulation for conversion, is the WMA's cannot be DRM'd. If they are, you may have to burn/rip, or record on the fly while listening to the music, using your soundcard's stereo mix function.

[edit]True, iTunes will also do it, but again they cannot be DRM'd WMA's. You can load them in iTunes library, then select them, right-click > convert to mp3 (might have to go into options, under Advanced > importing, and change the default format from AAC to Mp3, if you don't get the "convert to mp3" when right-clicking on the songs.)
