    This is my first post on Crackberry and I hope it is a contribution. I just discovered that the native browser supports Pandora! This means that you can play Pandora on the BlackBerry without downloading an app like Apollo. No more waiting for devs to release a native app, just follow the steps below.

    Open Browser
    Check if Flash is enabled, if not press Overflow, Settings, Display and Actions, Set Flash to On

    Navigate to Pandora.com
    Wait until the login screen loads.
    Enter your login information. Note: Do not press submit or enter on the keyboard or else the page will reload. Use the submit button on the website page.
    Check "Remember Me" for easy access later.
    Wait for it, success!

    Add Shortcut to Home Screen for easy access.
    Press Overflow.
    Select Add to Home Screen
    Edit details to your satisfaction.
    Press Save.
    Place the Pandora App on your Home Screen 1 :-).

    Edit: It is possible to set shortcuts that open different stations. Just make sure the station URL is displayed when saving the shortcut.

    The Pandora browser application will function exactly as a flash video. It will decrease in volume when there is an incoming notification and stop if another sound application is started.

    The music stops after 2 or 3 songs if left in background. It plays continuously if left in foreground.

    The BlackBerry native browser is the best. No other mobile browser I have tried runs Pandora. HTML 5 and Adobe Flash 10 support is amazing. They just need to fix the text reflow so text zooms larger and then the browser would be perfect!

    Why you no use Apollo? Unlimited skips, better than Pandora in my opinion.

    Interesting. I'm USA so I it works for me. I have no idea why it won't work for a Canadian user. Did you follow all the tips in the tutorial? Remember that you need to enable desktop mode and flash.
