    Default Use Cellular Data not working (possible bug)

    Part of setting up our new iPhone 5's, is restoring our music via iTune Match. Knowing that all the music will have to be downloaded from iCloud I made sure to turn off the "Use Cellular Data" under iTunes and App Store, thinking this would stop any queued songs from downloading once we left a WIFI connection. Well, this does not work as I expected it to work, it continued to download queued songs while on a cellular data connection. We burned through over 4.5 GB of data before we realized this was happening.

    I called Verizon, who intern called Apple, the Apple rep told them to tell me to don't use iTunes Match, WTW?

    Has anybody else seen this? Am I not understanding this correctly?

    Due to a misdesign in Music App it is possible to download big amount of music data in 3G network also if your configuration "use cellular data" is switch off.
    (also with a 4GS or iPad)
