    If iOS 5 allows you to own an iOS device with out having a computer, ever. Then can you delete songs straight from the phone? Will that be a new feature in iOS 5? It seems kinda hard not to, any music downloaded would be stuck there. Anybody got any ideas? Info?

    Well yes you can delete songs but wont be on the computer. then again from what you are saying you dont have a computer and you can delete songs from the phone.

    Really? I'm on the latest iOS 4 and I have no idea how to delete songs straight from the phone. Is it in the iPod app?

    iOS 5 does indeed allow you to delete songs directly from the device but they will remain in your iTunes

    What about making playlists without having to connect to your computer? I always hated that about the iphone.

    You can already create playlists via iPod/iPhone. I believe smart playlists still have to be done through iTunes though, if youre into those kind of playlists.

    If by smart you mean genius, then there is already an option in the iPod.

    Check iTunes under file.
    Create playlist, then Create Smart Playlist.
    Never used Genius so not entirely sure what it is

    Good question.

    Separate topic, i'm loving spotify. Frees up a ton of space but i haven't gotten myself to splurge for the $5/month for mobile listening.
