    You should be able to delete a song directly from your iPhone by sliding your finger across the song you want to delete, a red "Delete" button should come up.  Click it.

    This doesn't work b/c there is an alphabet on the side and when I tried that it kept flipping to that letter

    Start with you finger toward the middle of the song title, not all the way to the right, then swip to the left and you will see the Delete button.

    You can't. You need to sync it with itunes. You can delete it all be synching with a blank library.


    Hope that helps. /___sbsstatic___/migration-images/173/17363179-1.gif

    Yes, you can delete individual songs from the iPhone.

    Swipe from right to left, just before the alaphbet orginization bar.  You can delete songs individually from the iPhone.

    That worked for me.


    Interesting that I don't believe there is anything in the user guide about that.

    This is so strange.  On my iPod I can sync with iTunes, select multiple songs, press "delete" on my MacBook Pro keyboard and the songs are removed.  On my iPhone 4S, this does not work.  My iTunes library is hardly blank so syncing with it isn't going to work.  There must be some way of deleting an entire album (for example) from the iPhone without going through each song individually on the phone itself.  Does someone know something about this or have any other suggestions?  Thanks.

    To delete an album on you phone open Music, navigate to the album view (tap More, tap Albums), locate the album you want to delete, swipe right to left or left to right across the album title, tap delete.

    how do i get music from my ipod to iphone

  • randers4 Level 9 (62,715 points)

    The music needs to be in the iTunes library you're syncing your phone with.  Once there, choose to Sync Music on the Music tab of your iTunes sync settings and sync your phone.

    To delete all music:


    If you have iOS 5, click your settings icon, then General, then Usage, then Storage. Click the "-" sign next to music.


    To delete a single song:


    Click your music icon, click on songs, swipe your finger from right to left on the song. You said before that it doesn't work becuase of the alphabet - it does, just start swiping a little bit to the left of that alphabet (you can actually start the swipe in the middle of the screen).
