    Dunno what's going on. When I first got my phone Pandora was flawless.

    Then after awhile it would fail to load songs and lock up (I'd have to kill the process and restart Pandora to get it to work again)

    Then it got to the point where it would randomly stop mid-song and just skip ahead on its own or fail completely.

    Now it won't even load. None of my stations load at all.

    Anyone else experiencing any of these issues or know of any solutions? I'd rather not have to resort to using a different service, since I have my Pandora stations setup nearly perfectly :(

    i have experienced that at times, but for me it was generally when I didnt have good service wherever I was. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling since pandora will save your stations anyway since they are saved on your account not your phone

    Earlier today I experienced my first ever problems with Pandora. May have been due to an unexpected outage. Works now.

    My problems started yesterday and are worse today. Plays one or two songs then stops, won't play another song. When I shut down and reload it does the same thing. I have good signal and have been using this for about 5 months now in the smae location with no problems. Anybody have any clues how to fix?:thinking:

    Download Jango. It's like Pandora but gives you unlimited skips and no ads. You can create stations just like Pandora or they have some pre-made up. I uninstalled Pandora after getting this.

    It's near the end of the month. Have you used up your free listening limit?

    Well, it actually got better on Thursday of last week and it would play for about 30-45 minutes before hangin up as apposed to every 2 songs. Now it's back to freezing, now it seems like every song.

    I didn't know there was a listening limit, I haven't run in to it before. If that was the case, wouldn't it just block me totally until the next month instead of being intermitent? Anyways it's 2 August and doing it worse than ever now.
    Might have to try the Jango thing.

    There is a 40 hour free listening limit per month:

    Pandora FAQ

    Yes, it appears you would receive a message that you've reached the limit, although there's no guarantee that works properly on any specific platform I guess. Maybe it happens so rarely it's never been fully bug tested.

    If this very popular app just stopped working, I'm sure there would be a litany of complaints rather than just a single one.

    Well, I've easily listened to it for over 40 hours/month for at least the last three months and never had this problem, no message either. I wouel pay $.99 to stop it if I knew that was the problem. I checked on the android market for pandora reviews and it seems like the same thing is happeneing to a lot of other people. Lots of negative feedback right now due to this issue.

    I just installed Jango and it seems to be working fine.:D

    Same thing here, I've tried everything. It's been going on for me for about a month and have looked lots of places for a solution. It's not coverage or use issues ... it just gets hung up loading and reloading and skipping songs and then loading again. Switching to Jango! I have tons of time left on my account for the month and have great coverage. It's a problem with the app.
