    I am having trouble receiving Pandora. It cuts on and off. Sometimes very rapidly, like a get three notes, then it cuts out, and this pattern repeats. Or it will just cut out for minutes at a time...many minutes sometimes. Mostly this happens about dinner time, but it has happened at other times of the day

    I cant figure out if it is my phone, Pandora, or the network.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Or can one of RJ's technical gurus help me out?

    Thanks

    Probably the network, what iPhone do you have 3G, 3GS, 4? Any of those should be able to handle it fine, try restarting ur phone, (press an hold the top button till it says to slide to power off, then do that) if it's the phone running out of memory this should fix it, are you on wifi, 3G it should work on those, but prolly not edge network (a blue E or 3G in the top corner) Edge really won't support pandora

    Is your wifi on? Pandora doesn't work on my Blackberry if I have the wifi enabled.

    None of the above. You're actually just hallucinating due to the toxoplasmosis you aquired through eating all those tootsie rolls out the litter box.

    If it only happens around dinnertime it sounds like the network, AT&T will throttle back how much bandwidth you can use, and they cut everyone back at peak usage times to compensate for a lousy network, but you still see the "3G" logo in tha corner, so you think you getting full speed but your not, I rarely get 1/3 the speed that 3G unrestricted should provide. sometimes a 2 minute YouTube video will take over 8 minutes to load on 3G and I live in Orlando, where you would think I would have plenty of service

    I think you need to get one of those signal enhancing rubber bands that Apple was giving away a while back.

    Thank you, Gentlemen, for responding. I appreciate y'all's input. I think I can conclude it's not my phone.
