    I've been having issues with my Recently Added playlist (the one I use the most), basically the one on my iTunes seems right the songs that show up on the top of the list are the ones I recently added and as you go down the songs get "older". But that's not the way they show up on the phone, sometimes a get a completely different list of songs and sometimes I get part of it.

    At the moment I only see the two first songs of the smart playlist on my iPhone, aren't playlist suppose to show up exactly the same way they do on my mac? Maybe there is something I have yet to understand about playlist (After 6 years of playing around with them) Can anyone help me?

    I believe this is a bug of 3.1.1+ (or maybe 3.0). I, like many, have this problem as well, I don't think there is a solution yet.

    Why do you think that? No one seems to be experiencing any problems besides the two of us. I don't mind not using it until there is a fix, but I wanna be sure it's a bug and not just something I did wrong and I end up waiting for nothing.

    Is there a list of know bugs for the iPhone OS?

    I guess you were right! Theres even a temporary fix for it, I tried it and it worked like a charm. Thank you!

    (the fix was to uncheck live updating by right-clicking the smart playlist and clicking "Edit Smart Playlist")

    Yea, I read that, but it kind of defeats the purpose of the "Recently Added" playlist

    If it doesn't have live update, it won't have the most recently added songs lol.
