    Go to Settings -> Music on your phone and turn off iCloud Music Library. Then you'll get the options in iTunes.

    I had the same problem. Turned it off, synced, then turned it back on. Now my whole library is available on other devices but I know I have a full local copy on my phone and Mac Mini.

    iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library are two separate things (and settings). Are you sure this is the setting to change? Might want to check the Match settings within the iPhone's Music settings (same place as iCloud Music Library setting).

    For me it was iCloud Music Library. I'm not a Match subscriber so I don't see that option. (But I do have Apple Radio which includes iCML.)

    Not sure how it works if you have Match.

    For me the Apple Music I had added to my library disappeared on my phone once iCML was turned off. But it was still visible on my Mac. Obviously it didn't sync with the rest of my music, but once I turned iCML back on they reappeared. Of course, YMMV. I don't mean to sound like I really know what I'm talking about on this one. :)
