All of my songs that are on my PC are mirrored online through the Windows 8 Music App. This means that I can play any song I want from my home library even if it is not stored locally on my phone.The problem is that I am often in the subway or in trips abroad with limited connectivity and the Music app on my Windows Phone 8 (HTC 8X) is going through my tens of thousands of songs and fails to play almost all of them as I have only a few hundred songs on my phone.
Is there a way on Windows Phone 8 to see a list of all the songs that are locally on the phone instead of those that are on the phone AND those that are in the cloud?

Are you saying you can access your personal library that you have ripped on your PC at home? Or is this music you have purchased from Xbox? I can "see" all my home music via Windows Media Player on my laptop. Sure would be cool to be able to access it from my phone also!

Go to the Music+Videos app, click on music, then flick over to Songs. At the top there should be "All" listed in green. You can select this and a list should come up that says:
Choose A Category
If you choose Phone then you should be able to play all your locally stored music.

For your situation, when I went into a low service area, I would just turn it off before playing music. Should probably take you 5 seconds. Once you hit a good service area, turn it back on.
