    whats the easiest way of me sticking a fair amount of music on my phone as i wont have wifi on holiday.

    with the new itunes match settings, the only definite way of doing it i can think of is to

    1. download the songs from icloud to my mac
    2. turn off itunes match on my iphone
    3. plug iphone into mac
    4. use itunes to copy music onto phone

    is there an easier way?

    Download them straight to your iPhone from the cloud before you leave.

    Make a playlist of the music you want to take with you.

    Go to that playlist on the phone. At the very bottom of the playlist is a cloud icon and the option to download the playlist.

    Do this the night before you leave, so there is time to download while on your wifi.

    cheers peace. when i saw your answer i thought 'duh, thats obvious but it doesnt work like that now'

    but then realised on playing around with it that whilst you cant download single songs any more, clicking on an album produces a download button.

    all good advice so thanks everyone
