Have we been given a reason behind the limit?  It would be much better (for me) to have one playlist on my phone with 10k tracks, than 3 separate playlists that aggregate to 10k tracks.


You can have an umlimited amount of tracks in each playlist - it's just that you can only download 3,333 tracks per 3 devices.

Ok, not trying to be dense here - if I only have one playlist and one device, can it have 10k tracks in it downloaded to my device?

No.

 

Every device is allowed a maximum of 3,333 tracks downloaded to it for offline use - no matter what playlist they are in.

 

You can have offline tracks on a maximum of 3 devices.

Okay, I understand the song limit ine gereal because of the legal limitations, but why not just allow 10,000 songs to be downloaded in total for the account, regardless of device. This would be a lot better for people, such as myself, who only have one offline device. I would want to have the full 10,000 on my ipod considering that this is the only device I use.

Why is it limited?

This is exactly what I want - one offline playlist on my iPhone with 10k songs in it.

Is there any hope of getting this?

ok. let's say I have 10 playlists. 2000 songs on the first list, 2000 on the second list, and some hundreds on the next lists, . About offline: I realize the limit is 3,333 songs to be downloaded. How can i choose which 3000 songs??? If I wanted the first list as a whole list, but then only a few from the next, and some from all the next ones....

 

Or is it downloading just the 3,333 first ones, which ever are "in the line"...?

It will just download whatever is in line up until you hit the limit. 

So if you marked all of those playlists, it would sync all of playlist one, then 1,333 tracks of playlist too and then give you an error. Those are pretty big playlists though, its much easier to handle when they are broken up a little!
