OK, so fairly new to having music on my device. I have about 200 songs that just showed up on my new phone; I assume it's music the wife bought and is in our iTunes somehow. Also assume they got on the cloud somehow. Either way, I can see them and listen to them on my device. I learned I had to actually download it from the cloud to be able to listen to it with no type of cell/Internet connection.
I only have a 16g phone and I'm not a huge music person, so I only want a few of my favorites to keep from filling it up. Here's the parts I can't figure out... I have a few random songs that play when the phone is off line (no cellular/wi-if), but I can't swipe across the song and delete it?? I assume they loaded from the cloud, but why can't I delete. I didn't download them because when the phone is on line, the songs in question still have the cloud symbol there indicating they were not downloaded and I did not select them for download.
Same matter with a video. Have three movies in iTunes that are on the cloud. They show up but I have not downloaded them from the cloud. Before I did anything, I checked the video count in settings; it was at 13. Next, while connected to wi-fi, I watched one of the movies without
downloading it from the cloud. The movie worked. Now however, the movie works all the time with no wi-fi connection (as if it's downloaded), the video count is up to 14, but the iCloud symbol is still there as if it hasn't been downloaded. And, I can't figure out how to delete it off the device since it obviously appears to have downloaded.
