Just resync'd my iPhone and all music is now on the cloud available to download - I want the music on my phone and in advance - how do I do that? You used to link the phone to the mac and it loaded. Dam iCloud driving me mad.

I need the music files local so when I am on the train / tube I can listen. Apple seem absolutely unwavering in their commitment to save local space by giving me links to get my music on demand from the cloud - I don't want that. I can't see how to go back to traditional old school - my music, my phone, local, no connectivity requirement - listen in peace. apple charge a premium for simplicity - plug and play - where did it go wrong? I am sure there is one button somewhere I need to uncheck but god only knows where...
