I dont't know if this was asked before but I couldn't find a toppick with exactly the same problem.When I browse through the albums the songs are listed in the right order ,but when I start dding them to a playlist (doesn't matter if it's new or existing) they appear sorted alphabeticaly.There is no option to correct that.It seems that when adding songs to playlist the player reads the song name and not the song nomber from the tag.I even tryed adding the correct numbers infront of the song name in the id3tag but then again it sorts them wrong (like 01,10,11,12,13,02,03,04,etc.)
If anyone can come with a solution I'll be grateful.It's not that much of deal if you add 10-20 songs,but when I add like 200-300 songs it's a pain in the butt.
The logic of the system, particularly if you want to put as many songs as 300 in a play list, is that it is easier to find a paricular song via its name than via number 194 ? If you are wanting a playlist that plays in a specific order ie song begining with zoo first and alpha last then it isn't possible, maybe best work round is to just put stuff you really want to listen to in the list and use shuffle mode ?

My logic when I create playlist is to add the whole albums one after another and the songs to be in the order in which they are in the album.Not sorted alphabeticaly,For me it's pointless to add individual songs.If I wanted that I wouldn't copy the whole albums on my phone.
I just tryed to create a completely new playlist and started adding albums one after another and sorts the songs again by album and then alphabeticaly.It quickly becomes quite a mess.IMO the sorting must be Album-track number as it is in the Library.And that is the more qurious thing is why the 2 places sort the songs differently.
I guess there isn't any solution on this annoying problem and I'm stuck at the mess that this type of playlist creation makes.At elast untill someone at Nokia (or should I say Accenture) decides to make an option to switch between sorting types.
