I've been playing with Match for a few weeks, and yesterday I found that there is a severe bug in iTunes Match that needs to be addresses by Apple ASAP.

If you tell Match to not use cellular data, it will not allow you to initiate a download from iCloud without WiFi. However, if you start downloading a large playlist to the phone in Wifi and leave the WiFi coverage while it is downloading, the download keeps on going on 3G/LTE for all remaining tracks. I went through 1GB of LTE data in 20 minutes because of this. I now keep Match off on that phone and on the iPad.
