some issues i'm having.... anyone else?
i'm running stock but i'll probably be rooted and running a rom soon
one issue is that when my wife and i go on a walk around the neighborhood we like to listen to Pandora (on her evo v) we get a ways away from home and after a few songs it buffers fooooor eeeverrrr, i grab it from her and run a few tests of course (being knowledgeable enough) while still walking, she has bars... 3G is kicking... i try a random website... SLOW but still loads, Pandora doesn't need THAT much bandwidth does it? i mean pandora buffers for like minutes...
this is when i pull my evo v out and open google music and try to play a playlist. SAME THING happens... buffering forever, takes a minute to get a sliver of the song to load, then buffering again... i finally started looking into the google music app settings and changed "Download via Wi-Fi only" to off, this seemed to jump the song loading into overdrive(i know i was on 3G not wi-fi), but "stream via wi-fi only" is what needs to be off right?... i didn't change any settings when i installed the music app(just like on my optimus v... and i never had any problems on it... in my neighborhood also)
i'm wondering if anyone else has had issues like this.
am i doing something wrong?
maybe virgin is getting bogged down with new activations like they did when the optimus v was released?
let me hear it
