    OK This is just weird.
    I have a song on iTunes that is matched with iCloud
    On my iPhone I can only find the song by searching for it
    I can not find it alphabetically by artist, name or album on the phone. It just "isn't there".
    Anyone else have a missing/not really missing song?

    There does seem to be a few issues with iTunes match on iPhones, and I have similar :

    - I've noticed that the "group by album artist" option on the iPhone does not work, whilst it does on the iPad. If you uncheck it on the iPad it does, ie it will display under artist everything which is checked as a compliation (as it should). On the iPhone, it doesn't, in fact switching it on/off makes no difference at all to your library.

    (Is your problem maybe something to do with compilations?)

    - I've also noticed that if you update your metadata on iTunes, it will automatically update on your iPhone apart from the compilations tab. Again, this update will feed through to the iPad but not to the iPhone.

    Silly bugs, hopefully something that will get ironed out in subsequent updates.

    Not a compilation. Just one song alone.
    It's just weird!

    The only annoying bug I have a real issue with is the inability of my il
    iPhone to sync smart playlists correctly.
