    Im boggled by this. The iPod on my iPhone doesnt play the songs in the order they are listed in the playlist. Its as if its on shuffle. Even when I hit the next track button, it goes to a random song in the playlist but not the next one listed. Is there a reason for this? My old iPod didnt do this. This is especially annoying when listening to dj sets that have songs mixed in order but are tracked out. Anyone know a way to stop this?

    My iPhone so does not do this. something is wrong, possibly just a setting is set off, try restarting it, sorry, but I don't have a quick solution off the top of my head. Good Luck.

    Is the track number set in the individual songs?

    Some have track numbers and some dont. Albums that do have track numbers - it still randomly goes thru the playlist

    I had assumed you had eliminated the obvious. :)

    My advice is to carefully put your iPhone back it it's box, make sure all the original accessories are in there too.

    Take the phone back to the shop you bought it and tell them you are too stupid to own it and get your money back! ;)

    *before anyone gets there knickers in a twist, this is whats called a JOKE.

    ^^^ sounds more like australian humour (or complete disrepute for the OP)

    but to be honest i didnt realise that was there either :D
    it is poorly placed...

    (and i have been playing with a hacked and homebrew version of WM6 on my old HTC tytn before this!)
