Everything worked like a champ when I was on the free trial. The day (I mean the VERY day) that I started on a paying subscription, the app started to act horribly. Only plays 50 seconds per song without closing and reopening the app and syncing doesn't work. It's been sitting on "Syncing 1 of 301" for over three hours now. Tried to restart it multiple times, and nothing. I've browsed around but there doesn't seem to be any real solution to it.
Has anyone found a fix for this? I did absolutely nothing different from one day to the next so it's not "user error" that this is messing up. It doesn't even work on my wi-fi at home which is miles better than any 3G coverage, or in the middle of a store with full 3G coverage. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling on both my PC and iPhone and nothing changed.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm not exactly certain why this is happening to you. I have two suggestions, which may or may not help, so I apologize in advance if this doesn't work. First, try synching your iDevice with Spotify using the USB cable, rather than wirelessly. Even with my fast Wi-Fi connection, synching my iPhone via USB is always faster. If that doesn't solve the issue, I would try rebooting your iPhone. Don't just turn it off and back on, reboot it by holding down the power button and the home button for 10 seconds. You'll see the screen with the slider that says slide to turn off - just keep holding the buttons and ignore that screen until it turns off. If it doesn't restart on its own, press the power button until you see the apple logo, and then release it.
A third option ocurred to me while writing this post. If the above two options don't work, restoring your phone might help. Be sure to sync it and back it up in iTunes before you attempt to restore it, just so you don't lose anything.
