    Every time I play Pandora and I let the screen turn off it will play for a little bit then stop.When I unlock the phone it says "buffering".Is there a way I can keep it playing while the screen is off? I enable "background data" when I play Pandora.I don't have any "task killer" aps installed.

    I've never had that problem, do you have something like Juice Defender running? If so tell it to let the app keep streaming.

    Are you running on wifi? If so, you might want to change the wifi sleep policy to 'never'.

    Nope no "juice defender". I have "2x battery" installed.I run it off the 4g network.I would hate to keep the screen turned on.Even when the screen is off for a little bit and I turn it back on it takes about 2-3 seconds for it to show the 4g signal.Could this be why?and how come it isnt staying on even when the screen is off? Maybe go to metro?
