Is there a way that I can play music from my phone through my sonos speaker or music from my computer?

That's an oddly complex question.

Using a "player" on your device, it's not as easy. Sonos is a system to use the files stored on your devices and play them using the "player" on the speakers.

So, let's delve further in to that. First, what kind of phone do you have? As a concern, Apple has made some changes to iOS which make it impossible for Sonos to read files from the phone when it goes to sleep. If you've got an Android device, you can continue to play "from this device"

For your computer, you can simply follow the instructions in this FAQ:

However, if you have a Sonos device that has a line in (the CONNECTs, Port, Amp, and PLAY:5), you could conceivably connect your phone or computer to that line in, using these instructions: Line In
