    Or simply go to iTunes to your music library and find the song in the list and uncheck it. Then when you sync, the song will be removed from your iPhone.

    how do i delete songs from my iPhone

    i think i am missing something, i need to go uncheck 1,500 songs and then resync my phone?! then, do i need to recheck them in order for them to play on my computer?

    my phone synced all my songs the last time i charged it and now there is no room on my phone.

    SikShift is right. If you don't want those on your phone any longer, uncheck the particular songs you want removed. You must also be sure to check the option "Only sync checked songs and media". You can highlight multiple songs at once and choose to either "Check or Uncheck selection" to make it a bit easier.

    This is through iTunes, right?

    That is correct. You manage the files on the iPhone/iPod through iTunes exclusively.

    I've always managed all of my iPhone songs through various playlists. One playlist I sync has about 900 songs. I can delete entire playlists with one click from the iPhone main menu screen on my PC or I can go into individual playlists and delete songs or blocks of songs from there.

    Sounds like you issue may stem from the songs being "grayed out". I've never seen that. On a PC I can highlight a song, Shift and left click at the bottom of the group I want to delete and remove songs as a group that way on iTunes, from a playlist I wish to modify for the iPhone.

    I dunno, hope that's some help...

    I want to delete songs from the iPod on my iPhone. I went to iTunes on my Mac and deleted them there and synced the iPhone again but the songs are still there. Then I rebooted the phone and they still are there. I hate them! How do I get them off once they are no longer in iTunes on my computer?

    Where do I find the option "Only sync checked songs and media". I can't find it in the preferences or drop down menu of iTunes on my computer. Hopefully I'm just overlooking it!

    Simply click your iPhone's name on iTunes and you will see Options and enable "Manually manage music and videos"
    then you can delete song and set everything you can.

    simple...

    just go to your iPhone in the devices list, and go to summary, then tick the box beside "manually manage music and videos"
