    I am having an issue with a playlist that contains songs in the cloud. I am at work trying to get some songs downloaded. I clicked on download all (36 songs), but it doesn't do anything. I tried clicking on individuals songs and most of them download, but some do not. They will stream and I hear the song, but after the song is done it has not downloaded! Any ideas as to to why some songs only seem to be streaming and not downloading properly? (free space on the phone is not an issue btw)

    OK, so it is still not letting me download some songs. It only streams them! I check the info on my iMac and the account is my apple id store account that is the same for all the songs. Anybody else have this issue?

    Do you still have a technical relationship with iTunes music on your computer? If so, you might need to to into settings on your iDevice and change music to iCloud backup and make sure it says the same for the computer version of iTunes (plug in iDevice with USB, click on the device in the left column of iTunes once it shows up. Scroll to the bottom of the page and make sure backups are iCloud.
