Presuming you're doing this from iTunes on your computer, it won't remove the track from your iPhone until you sync. Have you done that since removing one or more tracks from iTunes? If you're trying to remove a track directly from the iPhone, do you have iTunes set to manually manage the iPhone?

Thank you for the reply!
I thought it synced automatically? For instance if I edit a tag, it syncs right away and I can see the edit on the phone. Same thing happens when I add a song, or delete a song from the music list. I actually just want to delete the file from my phone entirely, not just the playlist in the phone. I don't mind either way if it is deleted from the itunes library on my computer or not. I keep the music management manual. I don't really keep much music on my phone so I'd rather keep it manual.

If you have it set for manual management, then no, it's not going to sync music automatically. That's the whole point of manual management; so it doesn't do an automatic sync. If you are managing music manually, the you have to go to the music list in the iPhone (in the iTunes sidebar) and select and remove the tracks from there.

That's a bummer. I don't get why you have to have it sync to the music library to be able to delete songs from a playlist on the phone itself. You would think it would be as simple as including the option to delete it from the phone entirely when right clicking on the song in a playlist.

Sorry I think I'm not making myself clear.
I know I can delete the song on the phone using itunes and deleting it from the "music" list. What I want to do is use itunes, and delete the song using itunes (which I can do without syncing as you pointed out by deleting it from the "music" list) but when I'm looking at a playlist in itunes. When I right click and select delete, it will not delete the song from my phone, just the playlist. I'm gathering that I can't set it to manual for the ctrl+backspace function to work, which makes no sense to me.
