    whenever I buy a song on iTunes on my computer and then drag it into my
    Phone it goes in twice. Once greyed out and another regular. In order to remove the grayed our track I have to use ifunbox and remove the items in my purchased folder. Than it goes away. But is there a better way?

    Do you have the same problem when you try to sync them to your device?
    Also, if you buy them from iTunes Store, you should be able to access them directly on your device.

    I think work around is just buying it straight from iPhone and renaming it when I plug my phone into itunes. For some reason if I buy it on computer iTunes and copy it over both show. So dumb cause only one really plays.

    Grey means it's available on iCloud but not downloaded to your device. There used to be a way to turn off this "feature" but I can't seem to find that in iOS 10. Maybe they removed the ability to do so.

    Deleting the files in purchased hidden folder always fixes it. It's something I read to do on an apple support forum. That wouldn't affect anything else right? I don't delete the folder just the 4 things inside and then the gray purchased song goes away

    Like that wouldn't effect performance or battery life by getting rid of that?
