I am at my wits end on this.
Hit "shuffle songs" random song comes up and plays, the repeats endlessly.
If I push ">>" it will go to the next random song, but only if I do this, won't go on its own.
I did the basics, all songs are checked, check itunes that play list is marked to shuffle, did a restore on the iphone, turned it off, reloaded the music.
Checked every setting I can think of. Hit shuffle songs, and the same random song plays over and over and over...
Help me please. What am I missing.

    Do you have the iPhone set to repeat in iPod? The repeat option is located on the same bar as shuffle but on the opposite end, the left side.

    I don't see this repeat option.
    I do see shuffle at the top of "Songs", it is at the left.
    pressing it causes one song to randomly play, but then it repeats.

    Ok, so the repeat option is in the upper left when you're viewing a single song, the "Now Playing" view. You tap on the album art for the song that's playing and the little status bar appears and disappears, you see the "Repeat" icon, the track bar, and the "Shuffle" option. If the "Repeat" icon is white, repeat is off; if it's blue, then it'll repeat all the songs in that playlist/album; and if it's blue with a "1" icon, it'll repeat the same song over and over.

    Take a look at this page (http://www.dansanderson.com/blog/2007/09/iphone-ipod-shuffle-and-random.html) to SEE what I'm attempting to talk about

    I had the same problem - drove me crazy. To solve this go to the settings icon on main screen then general and then reset and reset all settings. This corrects the problem, but be aware tat it will erase the favorites in your phone list - phone book will stay, just favorites disappear -

    Hope this helps

    I tried the above suggestions, but no avail.
    I had to restore my phone as a "new" phone to get it to correct the problem.
    Not a restore from a previous setting.
    Then reloaded my music, contacts, photos, and web apps.
    Still don't know why, the repeat icon was white, it must have been a software glitch somewhere.

    some how your repeat is on....

    when looking at the album art(when phone is vertical) tap the screen...

    the length of time for the song will appear....

    to the left of that is the repeat symbol...if it is blue, it means it will repeat, tap it 2X to make it white...that turns off the repeat
