    Had this issue on my 4S and my 4. If you manually delete the song from the music app and then either redownload it or resync it from your computer you should be all fixed. Fixed the issue for both of my phone, my girlfriends and many many customers at my office.

    Yes, i just checked and pandora and everything else is fine, it's just not actually playing the song in the music app when it says it is

    I'm about to try the syncing thing now

    yeah. if you want to test it out just delete one song then resync just that song from itunes. try to play it after that and it should work. rinse and repeat. it can be a pain in the *** because you have to manually delete the songs from the phone first, THEN resync them after they are gone. I'd recommend deleting them by album or artist to save time lol.

    It's working now after syncing. I had been using iTunes match so I had to turn that off to sync with iTunes and it took a while to replace all the songs. So all I can figure is that it had some issue with iTunes match and playing the downloaded songs.

    Thanks y'all for the help!
