iTunes Audiobook Missing

Posted on 2014-01-10
Last Modified: 2014-01-15

I bought an audio book from the iTunes Store 6 months ago.

I went to listed to it today but i could not find it on my phone.

I then searched for it on the iTunes Store and instead of showing the download / cloud button it shows the price?

I still have the same phone and Apple ID. Has this ever happened to anyone before... do you know how i can get this back? Thanks in advance.

Probably you need to download it on a computer's iTunes to play it
