iTunes Match, Remove Music from iPhone?

So my frustrations with my iPhone and Music/Match are growing...

Now only are songs that are ON my phone STILL not showing up in MUSIC.

But now I notice I can no longer remove songs from my phone? I have unchecked the songs I wanted to remove and resynced. After doing so I go back into music and those songs are still on my phone. How do you remove songs with Match?

I am beyond frustrated, it has been months since these problems started and I just want to see all my music on my phone.

Turn off match on your computer and phone, then manually remove the music. Then turn it back on in both.

Wow, that is an awful way to have to remove things now. Starting to regret going with Match.

It would depend on how many songs their are to delete, but your way is easier.

Take my way as an alternative.

Or their is also

Settings> Usage> Music> Edit and Delete

Still don't like either option, I want to be able to do it the way I did it before without having to go in and turn it on/off.

Do you know how to get my missing music to show up that is on my phone, but not coming up in Music?

Where is it not showing up? On the computer in iTunes?

No, on my phone when I click the music app and go to artists. However, they are there when I do a search on the phone.

Are they possibly listed under something else, such as various artists for a compilation album?

Tried that yesterday and resynced, but still didn't show up. They use to show up, but for some reason they just stopped and i can't figure out how to get them back.

Although now I am thinking that when I went in yesterday and unchecked compilation, and resynced, they weren't really resynced thanks to Match.

But they use to show up there, just not sure when they stopped showing up.

Didn't for me, left everything on my phone and iPad. Weird! I'm using Match, too.

Bahaha! It just took 15 minutes to disappear! ROFL

Yes, because it takes a while for everything to delete.

----------

One more thing, if I delete the music from my phone that doesn't show up in Music and redownload it under purchased, it then shows up...

Then you can go into an album, artist, playlist or whatever, scroll to the bottom and there's a download all option.

I do not want to have to do that for 30GB worth of music, I want it all there, lol

Also, did you see where I said that if I delete the music from the phone and then go to Purchased and redownload it directly to the phone it shows up in Music?

Tap on the cloud and it will download. The cloud icon signifies that it uploaded to Match and available for download.

I only had about 6 songs on there right now, it shouldn't have taken that long.
