    I'm trying to remove all the songs from a particular playlist from my phone's shuffle. I've highlighted all the songs in iTunes, gone to "get info" --> "options" and selected "skip while shuffling", and re-sync my phone, but they still pop up. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    @ Joeblow 777, theres absolutely nothing you are doing wrong. I followed the same process in removing songs from my phone shuffle, and it works brilliantly and easy for me all the time.

    I am having the same problem too. Not in my playlists, but just shuffling in general. Everything I've previously omitted, is playing anyway.

    Very strange. I did it twice and the songs still came up during shuffle.

    Ah well. I just ended up removing the songs completely. It was a playlist that I had made specifically of a certain occasion which has now passed, but I wanted to know how to address the issue in the future.

    I have to say, one thing I don't like about iOS devices is how your content has to be managed through iTunes. Why is there not simply a way to remove songs from shuffle on the device itself?
