If you've paid for Premium but can't use your Premium features (ad-free listening, download music for offline listening, etc.), try the following:
Log out and back into your account Occasionally this is necessary to force a sync of info between your device and our account system
Check the status of your subscription Go to yoursubscription pageand check that your Premium subscription is still active.
Check the status of your payment If your Spotify payment is marked as 'pending' on your bank statement, it might not have gone through successfully. For more information, check out payment troubleshooting.
A pending charge is a part of your bank or credit card company's authorization process. When you submit a payment, your bank or credit card places a temporary authorization on the funds. If the transaction doesn’t successfully complete, no money will be taken and the charge will soon disappear. The time this takes can vary, depending on your bank/credit card company. For more information, contact your bank/credit card company.
Check that your Premium subscription isn’t on another account You might be logged into the wrong account. It's possible to create multiple Spotify accounts, each with their own login details, saved music, and subscription.
Hello I just ordered the 30-trial spotify for premium, but I can not access all the music in my account. For example, in my Ipad, I can't access to the music because its telliing me that I am not a premium user. Please review my problem ASAP
I just redeemed my spotify gift card and it says on my account that I am a premium user yet I can't access any songs. It keeps saying I have to be a premium user to listen. I have logged out of my account, I have reinstalled it onto my iPod and logged in with Facebook and still nothing. What do I do now?
I signed up for the free 30 day premium and then will pay monthly. I was having trouble playing the music I saved during the 48 hour free but it is finally playing but now I can only search for songs and when I want to listen to them/save them it says I only premium users can listen. I looked up my subscription and it says that I have premium...how can this get fixed? I don't want to be charged for this every month if this is going to be an ongoing issue...

Hi BlakeDasnake - It seems you redeemed that giftcard for an Unlimited subscription--not Premium. A Premium subscription is required in order to use Spotify on mobile devices such as iPods.
When that Unlimited subscription ends in March you can upgrade to Premium via your subscription page.
