    As long as you don't tether, or up/down streaming music or video 24 hrs a day...... You are good. Correct me if I am wrong guys but pandora is not streaming by definition in that its not a continuous data flow........

    But anyhow as long as your data usage is coming from your device and not tethering, you are good to go

    As I understand it, it's streaming. Audio and video not downloaded is streaming.

    I could be mistaken....
    But I believe that its not a constant stream. The song loads ahead of time and then the player plays it........ That's why you don't lose music the second you go out of service...... At least I don't......

    Regardless, slacker/pandora/iheartradio are NOT a violation of VZW TOS and will not result in additional charges to an unlimited days plan

    The only problem, from what I have read, is that there is a cap on how many hours you can listen to pandora a month. Can anyone verify that such a cap exist with this app.

    If there is a cap, it is within the app - I've not found any actual cap, but I do see a lot of Internet chatter about one that supposedly exists.

    I know there are many here who use these apps a lot more than I do, but I've not heard anything about restrictions from anyone here.

    I did accidentally leave Slacker running on a cradled BlackBerry while I was gone for 10 days - it was playing when I came home. No data bills & it kept playing.

    more like satellite radio... thats the comparison I would make... can't speak for Pandora but Slacker has given me no reason to look elsewhere.....

    Pandora limits you to 40 hours a month for free. After that its $1-$5 or something for the rest of the month. Still the best option to me.

    First Google result for "padora radio 40 hours"
    Pandora Radio to Impose 40 Hour-Per-Month Limit
    In the wake of pricy royalty rates set back in 2007, Pandora Radio has finally come to an agreement with the RIAA. Pandora has signed over 25% of their income to music licensing firms.
    Unfortunately, because of this loss in revenue, Pandora has had to make a difficult decision. Pandora will now be charging for a service which was once free. There are now two options available to fans of the online radio station.
    1. After 40 hours, users will have the option to pay $0.99 to continue streaming for the rest of the month.
    2. Users can sign up for a yearly subscription @ $36 per year, which offers unlimited streaming.
