    Call it over dramatic or whatever you like but when I am listening to my music I expect to listen to my music which I have loaded on my device ..I don't like when some album starts streaming itself ...and now I am not even able to delete it.. As for the other start up essential apps ,yes I use it cause I need them for their functionality.. And I very well paid for this device and I have right to use it however I wish..I absolutely want freedom to choose what goes into MY device..I am never a fan of Bloatware and that's why I don't like OEM s like Samsung who stuff up CONSUMER s devices with such things..some people might like all the Bloatware too so it should always be the consumers choice...anyways listening to U2 s music doesn't serve me any purpose..and I absolutely don't want it...the five songs I was mentioning are still there and there is no cloud symbol beside them..iTunes on my PC doesn't show them and I don't get the delete option by swiping right to left...and yes all of those who are mocking me needs to get aware about their rights,individualism and sense of real freedom ...And I have already paid at least 250$ to Santa s coffers and I am willing to pay more if Santa behaves and don't barge into my device via cloud chimney...

    No sir. You said that you did not like having things placed on your device without you putting them there and I pointed out several things that were placed there without your involvement. I didn't even include ads of which you can never get rid of. Now you can spin it however you'd like, but your complaint, although valid on a personal level, does not stand with the rationale you're using. The U2 album is a gift, and it was presented as a gift via the Keynote presentation and via iTunes. None of the songs are on my device, but the option to download is there should I want to download them.

    Wow...why should I listen to U2??-imageuploadedbytapatalk1410448440.473799.jpg

    So you admit that YOU manually accepted the "gift" by downloading the songs onto your device....wow!

    I never manually downloaded it..all eleven songs were there with cloud symbol when I created the post..later on I found only 5 of them there without cloud symbol.. I plug iPod into PC but they were nt showing in iTunes... After trying all the options which came to mind I managed to see the album in hidden purchase then downloaded those five songs to iTunes library..synced it with my iPod and then finally I was able to get that orange delete button by swiping right to left on my touch...

    Go to settings and turn off auto downloads for music, apps and updates, and you won't have that happen again. You are in control.

    No apple was not! YOU have the option to turn off auto downloads, and YOU have the option so that the songs wouldn't has even showed up in your library. You need to grow up.

    My point still stands. You could have turned automatic music downloads off. By having it on, any music in your iCloud account downloads. Get over it.

    Those songs would never have gone to you like that if you had had auto downloads turned off. Your fault!

    It's in the cloud, it's not downloaded. It's a free gift, hate it or love it. I'm not a fan of that genre nor am I a U2 fan but I gave it a listen and just so happen to like it. Why is it THAT big of a deal?

    Go to settings > iTunes & App Store; turn off music, so you don't see music that's not downloaded. Turn off automatic downloads if you don't want purchases to automatically download.

    Wow...why should I listen to U2??-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1410452759.910931.jpg

    Yes, I think that Apple should've allowed us to click the link to get it free ourselves but oh well!

    Do you throw presents at people if they give you something while screaming that you didn't ask for it therefore they were hacking your life?

    Good lord. It's a free album you choose to download or not. It's not Ebola for criminies sake.
