    Hi, this might be confusing to read, I am sorry. I searched the forum already but it doesn't seem like anyone else is having this problem, but I just updated my iPhone 3GS from 4.1 to 4.3.1 and I can't use Spotlight to search for music and have it play the whole library after doing the search.

    For instance, I have 300 songs on my iPhone, on 4.1 if I used spotlight to find a song and play it, it would play "x" of 300, and after the song ends, it continues to play other songs on my iPhone on shuffle.

    Now on 4.3.1, it would play ONLY that song I searched for (1 of 1) and won't continuing playing other songs until I go back the the iPod app, go to the music tab and press shuffle.

    Is this a new feature of 4.3.1 that I can turn off? I use spotlight a lot to quickly search for music I want to listen to and it's so annoying that it would only play the song that I searched for. Thanks!

    It'll play all of the songs that are on the same album by the looks of things. So if the song you searched for is the only song from a specific album, it'll play only that song then stop.

    Do you know how to make this stop? Because with IOS 4.1 it would play all the songs I have in my iPhone, not just the album

    There's probably no way to make it stop, that'll just be the way Apple has made it.

    Hi, sorry to pulling up an old thread, but I just updated my phone to 4.3.3 and I am also having this problem, I can still jailbreak my phone, is there a jailbreak hack to fix this problem? Or maybe just a jailbreak that lets me quickly search for my music and play it?
