I have the problem that I want my iPhone to play my Smart Playlist in the right order (The order i put it in - so recently added). The problem is my iPhone always plays it in a totally bogus order. It basically behaves like shuffle is always enabled. On the iPhone itself there is an option to sort the Playlist, but not the songs in a Playlist.

I just want to enjoy my music basically the same way like I do since Winamp 1 in the mid 90s.

Not sure why it behaves like that. I also have a smart playlist where I sort using recently added (newest song on top). If I play the first song it will continue down the list as expected until all songs have been played.

Since smart playlist items cannot be manually rearranged, this bug is quite annoying.
I don't experience such issue until now though.
And I also find smart playlist based on playcount, time, is easier to be messed up. My previous Top 25 played acted in a weird way so I deleted it.
