    Hey there webada,


    It happens to all of us. Although we all have day jobs, I know I try to come on here and help others, so I'm glad I was able to help you with this in the end


    Take care!

    Hi Jay-Ray,


    I'm not a success story. I've done what you suggest and yet there are still songs on my iphone that are not selected in iTunes. Any other ideas?

    I too have struggled with this.  I tried this solution to no avail.  I was able when deleting to remove a number of albums but when deleting a song from several albums  a song started playing & now those items cannot be deleted by swiping right to left.  They just keep playing.

    I had to do a complete delete of all music in February & redownload only those I wanted currently on my phone.  Very cumbersome, not an ideal solution.  It should not be this difficult.


    I was hoping with the recent IOS7 update that this would be resolved.


    I have a large iTunes Library with iTune Match - 17,000+ songs.  I only use my iPhone 4 for recently acquired material to listen to on the go, so need to constantly add/delete from phone.


    I repeat this should not be this difficult.

    It's a miracle.  I powered off device items were still there.  Wrote above & went back & the items I was trying to delete were gone.


    I'm leaving iTunes Match disabled on my iPhone & manually manage as before dropping in to the device plugged in through iTunes.  It seems to be working.


    Thank you


    A little bit of this & a little of that.

    Did you enable iTunes Match on your iPhone? If so, disable it by going to Settings > iTunes and App Store > iTunes Match > OFF


    In addition, you can delete songs from any iDevice using copytrans manager without the need to sync/unsync with iTunes.
