I thought iTunes music match was supposed to be free. In order to store music on the cloud you have to pay $25

You can store 5GB on iCould for free. If you want to use iTunes match witch upgrades your music DRM free and 256K bit rate you need to pay the yearly fee.

It doesn't give me the option to store any of my music at all. I had two choices, No Thanks or Purchase for $25

Does anyone know how to get your music to sync in the cloud? I have no cloud options on any of my songs. In iTunes when I click Turn on Match it gives me the option to decline or purchase for $25. I currently have about 4.9 gigs of storage left.

Can anyone help me with the APP organization issue? I do not want to spend an hour rearanging my APPs in iTunes to get it how it is SUPPOSED to be

According to my online research you have to pay $25 for the match service. You CANNOT store your music on the cloud for free at all

Sorry but it does look like I was wrong. Looks like the music is only with iTunes Match or the keeping of your purchased songs in iCloud.

Even ones you purchased directly from iTunes can only be used in music match if you pay the fee. The advantage of the iTunes purchase is it doesn't count against your storage or your song limit

Actually the ones purchased are automatically stored. You can download them from any device that you have on your account. No need to use music match on those. I never considered them part of iCloud until Rocky showed me the light.

:D

Been so busy today I didnot realize iTunes match went public. I bet syncing today wil be slow.

I have over 4000 songs synced. When you add new music use the menu command to update iTunes match.

I had several songs that encountered an "error" uploading to the cloud. Some I had ripped from a CD I bought and some from Rhaposody I had a gift card for. I assume I can try this again.
