    Hey everyone. I have a Samsung Galaxy II Skyrocket. I have problems with two apps - Pandora and IHeartRadio. I am on Wifi and it says it is at 5 mbps. I can't even get IHeartRadio to play a song after clicking on a station - it doesn't say buffering or anything. On Pandora, it plays a song for like 10-15 seconds then buffers, and so on. What can I do to fix this? I believe it works on my home wifi. I didn't know if it was the wifi connection causing the problem or what. Thanks

    Have u checked to see how fast your network is running? That could cause buffering problems, if its really slow. Speed test app from market

    I checked when I was at work and it was like 2.46 mbps upload and 2.76 mbps download. Is that slow? I can get TuneInRadio to work but not Pandora or IHeartRadio.

    That is rather slow, but not slow enough to make those apps unusable, i doubt. Is this ur work wifi? Some secure networks block privileges to certain things, i think by blocking specific ports

    Edit
    I believe they do it to stop people from wasting bandwidth and time at work with dumb shit, lol

    You can always uninstall the apps and then re install them. Just a suggestion but I would look into Last.fm

    Its $3 a month to have on your phone but has a much better randomizer than Pandora and plays a much more accurate group of songs based on your band selection. Plus, no skip limits!

    I have both apps with no issues. I use them when I walk my dog. So I would follow the advice above and reinstall the apps. I would also check running the apps over ATT and then over wifi to see if there is a difference
