I'm having trouble deleting music from my iPhone. When I downloaded the song and started to play it, it would skip completely or play and cut off and on, I want to know what I can do without having to plug up my phone to the computer to delete the song and repurchase it???? Help please!!

P.s match is off

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    If you're using iTunes match, until you update to iOS 6.1 you can't delete (or download) individual songs.  All you could do is delete all the music from the phone by going to Settings>General>Usage>Music, swipping All Music and tapping Delete.  You will then have to download the music you want on your phone again from iTunes Match.

    Match is off, and not needed in this case.


    Sunnie, all you need to do is swipe across the song name and tap the Delete button.  You can then re-download the song from the iTunes store directly from your iPhone (or back on your computer).
