I have autamatic wifi syncing on, on my iphone. I have made playlists and they sync to my iphone but, when i add a song on the computer to the playlist it doesn't transfer to my phone and vice verse. When I plug my phone in it copies the playlist again to my phone so if i have a "favorites" playlist it will put "favorites 1" on my phone and all the music I added to the playlist on my computer will be on there but, not the music that i added to the playlist on my phone. That gives me two playlists each with slightly different songs but not all the songs on one playlist. Is there a way to ync the playlists so they all go to the same playlist and not just copy onto my phone. thank you!

iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.4

    1- If you autosync, any changes you make in your library should be reflected on your iPhone on its next autosync, and without creating a 2nd playlist (e.g. "favorites 1").


    2- If you autosync, any changes you make to a playlist from your phone will be over-written next time you autosync.  If you want to be able to edit a playlist on your iPhone, start by creating a new (blank) playlist, then select the playlist you want to change so it is added to this new playlist, then make whatever changes you want.  When you re-sync to iTunes you'll have to delete the original playlist and keep the new one.


    Now, perhaps wi-fi autosync behaves differently, but a wired autosync should behave as above.
