    I am subscribed to iTunes match and I stream my music sometimes but when i stream it (not download to my iPhone) the songs appear in my music app and i can't swipe to delete them!

    So when I stream them does it download them too? But they won't remove either by swiping

    What can i do? And why is it doing it?

    When you play a song iTunes intelligently downloads a copy of it and stores it in the phones cashe. That way you aren't using more data if you want to hear the song again. When iTunes has determined it's no longer needed it will delete the song from your cashe. So there is no manual way to remove the cashe.

    The problem I have is that I can't download my most often used playlists. The downloads start, but then the song will get almost fully downloaded and just stop. Sometimes it restarts the download, over and over. Eventually it all fails. So for a few hundred songs, I probably only have about 20 that are downloaded and I end up listening to over and over. It's getting ridiculous.

    Anybody else having issues w/ iTunes Match failing to download?
