    So far I have enjoyed using iTunes match. I have noticed that when I turn it off or on, it takes several minutes to sync up? Is this normal? When I am at work I generally turn it off and just listen to what I have on my phone. When I want to grab an album, I turn it on and download. The lag from searching through music is annoying.

    Yeah that's normal - it's downloading the library file again with the song list. It won't use much data once the initial load is complete, though, so it wouldn't be too terrible to just leave it on all the time. That way you always have the most recent library due to automatic updates.
