Make sure these features are available on your phone:
1 iPhone is connected to the computer and iTunes is running.
2. On the Summary tab of the iPhone, the box next to "Manually manage music and video" is checked. Click Apply. This step will not remove music already synced to your iPhone.
3. On the left side menu under DEVICES, click the arrow to the left of the iPhone to expand the iPhone contents.
4. Select Music from the expanded iPhone menu.
5. At the bottom left of the iTunes window you'll see options for selecting the source of autofill songs. On the right there's a button labeled Settings.
6. Choose the source from the pull-down menu. Click Settings to allocate storage space and decide how songs are selected.
7. Click Autofill and the iPhone will sync, filling up space with music automatically
Good luck!
