    I'd do a restore in iTunes from a previous backup.

    How did you use iPhone without iTunes? I think if you have no backup saved, you will need have to do a restore as new to factory settings and than re-download all your songs. It looks like the issue is with your phone.

    doing a full restore again, and just removed iTunes and downloaded it again, keep you posted if it works , could it be a fault with the phone?

    restore done, songs have now appeared on the music app, not there before, didn't update the carrier settings this time, and backed up from PC not i cloud, over the cable not WiFi, all seems to be working well so far, my iPhone 3g was bullet proof compared to this one
