    What I normally do is when I dont want certain songs on my phone is I click sync songs and videos manually and then click sync only checked items. Then go through your itunes library and uncheck anything you do not want on your phone but it will still keep it on your computer..

    I make a playlist called iPhone, and another called iPod. Whatever I want on the iPod I put in that playlist, whatever I want on the iPhone I put in that playlist. And I only sync that playlist.

    Create a playlist. Add songs to it. Configure the iPhone in iTunes to sync only that playlist.

    This won't work though for the case you mentioned where you want to delete a song from iTunes but keep it on the iPhone. Anything you delete in iTunes will be removed from the iPhone on the next sync.

    Edit: like fireshot91 said.
