I have a 50 most played, Recently added, and recently played smart playlists on my itunes, and my ipod. On iTunes, it shows the 50 most played on iTunes, and on my ipod, it shows the 50 most played that I played on my ipod. However, on my iPhone, it doesn't show any of the things i've played. It just shows the last 50 songs in alphabetical order starting with numbers, and then going to Z, Y, etc.

Is there any way to set up a smart playlist on the iphone?

Thank you for any help.

Yea I noticed that to, I think they iPhone counts how many times things are played on it, so if you listen to a song on your iPhone alot it may show up on your iPhones most played list but not on your computer, and the same on the computer.

And the iPhone shows the most recently added to the phone, not your computer, and since the iPhone syncs in alphabetical order then the higher songs will be be first added, or thats what im guessing.

But then agian this is all stuff im just guessing about.

There is an iPhone bug where some playlists show you the opposite of what you expect.

For example, "Top 25 Most Played" will actually show you the "Top 25 Least Played" songs.

Until they fix that, you can create a new playlist that does things backwards. i.e. make a new one that shows you the Top 25 Least Played and it'll show you the Top 25 Most Played... if that makes any sense?
