    I have a problem with my new A727. There is now a phantom playlist file that I cannot delete off of my phone.

    It is named "Playlist 01" and on the phone itself, in the list of playlists. I hit the options button to bring up the context menu, but instead of getting all of the options doing the same thing on other playlists gives me, it is giving me only three options (Open, Create Playlist, and Player Settings)... Absent is the option to delete this specific playlist, also play/rename... All of the other playlists give me 6 options when I hit options: (ie Open, Play via, Create Playlist, Delete, Rename, Player settings)

    So now I have this "Playlist 01" stuck on my phone and there is no way to delete it on the phone (I've tried everything I could think of)... I also can't see it in any part of PC Studio when I connect it to my PC via USB. In fact, I can't see ANY of my current playlists in PC Studio, but the other ones are working fine (they were all created on the phone itself)

    The only thing that is different about this playlist is that in that the picture for the playlist has a blue arrow pointing downwards on it, which none of the others do.

    This is going to drive me crazy because now every time I get my list of playlists there is this empty, undeletable playlist coming up as one of the choices.

    I've tried everything I can think of, looking in PC Studio on the phone to see if it's listed to delete -- It doesn't show up anywhere that see in PC Studio (Manage files, Manage Multimedia Files, etc). I've also tried creating a playlist of the same name on the phone itself, IMPORTING a playlist of the same name via WMP to attempt to overwrite it (although syncing fails for whatever reason)

    Any ideas on what I can do to get rid of this, or am I screwed?

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Phantom playlist on A727... Can't delete, driving me nuts...

    OK, this is strange. Now the playlist is gone, what I think fixed it was that I went to a place where I actually had a signal on the phone and then reloaded the playlist list, now it is vanished. I can't help but think it had something to do with the blue arrow, was this something that the phone thought it had to download off of the network rather than something caused by the USB cable?

    Prior to this I did turn the phone on and off a few times and it always was in the list, no idea why it all of a sudden is gone but I can't complain, heh.
