iPhone 4S running iOS 6.1
Spotify Premium version 0.5.9.10
Mix of both spotify files & local files within my playlists
Playlists are set on the iPhone as "Available Offline" - YES
All tracks with the playlist have the little green arrow showing it has been synced
I then put my phone in airplane mode to teach a yoga class (thus the reason for paying for premium)
Spotify Tracks play fine
Local tracks will NOT play - there is no ball showing progress on the timeline - the pause button is there but no music - press play/press pause - nothing...
It happens in multiple playlists - tried uninstalling, reinstalling, tried unsyncing, resyncing, tried recreating playlist. Nothing works.
As soon as I turn off airplane mode - the local track that appears to be "waiting" will immediately start to play
The Local Tracks folder is set to NO for available offline (even though all 12 tracks within it have the little green arrow next to them). I suspected that might be the problem except if I turn it to YES, it tries to sync my entire iTunes library - 3500 songs will NOT fit on my iPhone (nor do I want them to).
It seems this is a new problem as I've been playing these same playlists for months in airplane mode with no issues. Maybe since iOS 6.1 came out or a recent spotify upgrade????? Not sure as I didn't anticipate such a weird problem. It's only been happening since about January 25 or so.
Please help and Thank you!
