    I am stymied. This should be a no brainer but no matter what I do I can't seem to get my ipod (in the iPhone) to simply play normally. It ONLY repeats the same song over and over again. I tried to sync with repeat off on laptop and also looked for a switch within iPhone. Am I crazy? I hope it's a simple solution that I simply haven't found yet. Might a factory reset be necessary?
    Any help much appreciated.

    repeat settings on page 61 of the iPhone manual.

    Once you have your playlist displayed start the first song. Tap on the album art and the Playhead will appear. The Playhead tells you how much time the song is in minutes:seconds; elasped time on left, remaining time on right.

    On the left side of the Playhead is the Repeat icon (it looks like a race track). Tap it to make a selection.

    Black=repeat one song
    Blue=repeat all songs
    Blue with black head=set to repeat current song
    Black and white=not set to repeat songs

    On the right side is the shuffle incon (it looks like two crossed lines with arrows to the right). Tap it to make a selection.

    Black=play songs in order
    Blue=shuffle
    Black and white=set to play songs in order

    this was very helpful, although the icons have changed a bit on the left (playhead side). Now we have blue and white and a dial thing. Any updates from you savvy users?

    if you need to stop repeating, click it until the thing goes white.

    the actual meanings. (let's call the icon an arrow)

    White arrow - not repeating.
    Blue arrow - repeat playlist
    Blue arrow, with tiny 1 in bottom left bit of arrow - repeat 1 song.

    Edit your playlists in iTunes and resync. This thread is hella cranky because you woke it up after a long slumber!:mad:

    Thanks! I feel like an idiot - kept trying to find some setting, or thought it was a sync problem. Thanks for taking the time to lay all this out.
