      Here is a link to another forum that offers this solution for the delete.

      I found I could delete my music from iPhone, but only by doing this:
       Settings > General > Usage > Music
       Then swipe Delete.

       I found this finally deleted all my music from my iPhone, then I started again by syncing my music from iTunes.

      Hope this helps,truenorth

        Thanks truenorth, i'm happy to restore factory settings but i don't have my laptop here to sync everything from so will just be left with a blank iphone.

        Can i restore factory settings and then sync from abroad/remotely?

        Thanks again.

          Ok to put my suggestion and attempts at assistance in proper perspective.I do not now nor have i ever owned the device that we are discussing. The closest i have ever come to it is the 1st generation I-pod shuffle. Which can be synced to a computer and uses the I-tunes library. Now you obviously have access to a computer where you are and do not have hands on access to the one in the U.K. So why not sync the device to the computer where you are and when and if the U.K. computer joins you or you it then you can copy the I-tunes library to a portable medium such as a flash drive or a cd disc and transfer it to your laptop and incorporate the songs to your I-tunes library on the laptop once you have synced the I-phone to the U.K. laptop?If on the other hand the 2 of you shall never be co-located why would you even want to do this?If as is common you shall be adding and deleting from you I-phone and for whatever reason you do not want to lose any of the songs even the ones you intend to delete from the I-tunes library either save them in another folder or on a remveable device.Does that cover your desires or have i missed something? truenorth

          Hi luckynumber37,

          is it your second-hand iPhone you are restoring, or the one you lost in Vietnam?

          thanks,
