    Hey, I know this may sound almost elementary but after syncing with iTunes last night, I download ever silly sound bit iTunes found in my computer! :) After spending an hour trying to find a delete function for music with no success, I gave up!

    How do you delete un wanted file like music from the iPhone? I found a function for video but doesn't help.

    Thanks!

    so basically delete all the files I don't want on the iTunes/music folder, then resync?

    wow! Just had a major wake up call!

    This is my first time using iTunes but still, this is retarded! Shen the iPhone is synced, that little arrow to the left of it, well, i didn't realize you could click that and that brings down a menu of your files in the iPhone...

    thanks!

    I recently copied a flawed album to my MacBook iTunes and of course it xfered to the iPhone glitchy. I've replaced the album on iTunes with a a pristine copy and now I need to know how to get rid of the flawed one on my iDevices. Any suggestions?

    uncheck the album in iTunes and sync your phone. it will remove the album from the phone. Then re-select the album and sync again and it will copy the album out of iTunes.

    I will surely be stuck with garbage music my son put on my iTunes.

    I have looked at everything online about deleting and it seems it can't happen for me.

    Must I gag for the life of this phone?

    simply swipe across song you don't want and hit delete.

    Assuming you have iTunes installed on your computer, with the phone connected to the computer and iTunes running, click on the "Music" entry below the iPhone's name on the left side of the page. This will show all of the music currently on the phone on the right side of the page. Simply highlight everything you want to be deleted then right click on any of the highlighted entries and choose "Delete" in the pop-up menu. (You can select multiple songs in the usual ways.) That should remove all the music, you had highlighted, from the phone and you can put your choice of music onto it in your usual fashion. The same thing should work with any other categories listed in iTunes showing below the iPhone. You can also change the name on the phone, if you like by, left clicking on the name of the phone and typing in what you want. Don't be surprised when you get some of the scary "Are you sure you want to do this" kinds of warnings.
