I've hit a similar problem, I have a smart playlist that's limited to 150 most played songs. Right now it shows my entire libary of 6 thousand plus on my iPhone. However I have other smart playlists that are fine and playing by the "rules". Going to give it alittle time and the delet the playlist and build a new one. will let you know if that works!

Great, that would be helpful.
But we shouldn't have to completely change the way we create our lists, IMHO. It shoul, ahhh, just work. ;-)

I'm running into the exact same problem. I agree, it's absurd that I cannot sync nested playlists. Not only that, when I touch a nested playlist on my iPhone it crashes the music app or freezes my iPhone and I have to reboot. For me, the nested playlist issue + no Genius playlists = EPIC FAIL.

I, too, am having the problem of a Smart Playlist is not eligible for icloud because it references another playlist. Unfortunately, it's my main/usual playlist so not being able to sync it to the cloud and my iPod is kind of a deal-breaker. I'll go back to tethered synching. I guess I paid $25 for nothing.

I don't think the iOS devices have ever understtod things like 'Last Played' in smart playlists. With Match, this becomes a big issue, however. I have playlists like Media Kind=Music and Last Played>9 months. On my iPad and iPhone, these contain all my music.
Like others have stated, this is a deal breaker for me (along with the fact that Plays and Last Played does not update when I play a song from the cloud on an iOS device).

I had a few smart playlists that referenced other playlists and it simply doesn't work with match at this time. I was really excited about the potential of the service and signed up right away but this was pretty much a deal breaker for me. I just got done turning iTunes match off on all my devices, even my MacBook and requested a refund. I hope they get these bugs/features working right in future releases.

I am having the same problems on my iPhone and iPad. Smart playlists are correct when signing into different computers in iTunes (regular/manual playlists transfer over fine). However, smart playlists are not correct at all on my iPhone and iPad. They do not appear to have any ruleset that matches the criteria I set up. This is a deal breaker. Apple, please fix! If anyone finds a way to fix this, please let me know.

I'm also seeing the problem with "limit to". In recently added music, I set it to bring in all music from the last 24 months and limit to 200 songs... I'm getting all 600. Doesn't seem to be working properly!!

The limits to smart playlists are not being honored on iOS for me too! Really annoying.

It isn't only iPhone and iPad, but Apple TV too. I guess any iOS device is having serious issues with these smart playlists.
Too bad, I really rely on them.

I have some folders that contain playlists that are all "Not Eligible" since they reference other playlists. When I try to browse to those folders on my iPhone 4S, the Music App freezes every time. Some of the times that I tried this, I was able to get back out to the home screen and force quit the Music App (though this was not graceful- the home and hold buttons didn't do anything until I left the phone alone long enough for the display to "go to sleep" on its own). The last time I tried to access one of those folders on my device, I kept the screen active, and the 4S eventually rebooted itself.

Having the same issue here, my iPad and iPhone smart playlists are all screwed up.

Seeing the same issue as listed. This smart playlist issue and the lack of real streaming to iOS devices is quite frustrating. I don't see any reason to not just have an option available to only stream the music. Even giving the option to disable streaming while on 3G to keep people from having data overages. Really though, I would be happy if my Smart playlists would correctly stay in sync and the SORT ORDER would follow whaterver option I had last set on my Mac. Or even better give a sorting option on iOS for playlists.
Anyway, everyone that has posted please make an effort to hit up http://www.apple.com/feedback/icloud.html to make sure this is well documented.

If you want to, you can disable the use of 3G data in Options > Store and disable the use of data over 3G for music.
Regarding the options to sync playlists with limits or referring to other playlists I also have that problem.
