Note: ATT customers can now use pandora on Windows Mobile! You can download the cab and it comes with a 1 day trial.  After that its $8 a month. Get it here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=2986348&postcount=79


 Pandora is not available on all AT&T phones that is why a lot of Tilt users are resorting to LastFm instead.    The list of AT&T phones does not include the Tilt.  Even when I tried to download (knowing full well my phone wasn't on the list-hoping that the list just hadn't been updated), the response was "phone not supported".

Re: Pandora on ATT Tilt

When I emailed Pandora about supporting WM phones, the response that I received was to "just buy a phone that is already on the supported list"! That is ridiculous!

Re: Pandora on ATT Tilt

I heard of the $8.00 charge and couldn't believe it! It's free for iphone and non WM users. Why should we have to pay and others don't? That pure discrimination imho!
Everyone that's interested in PANDORA should protest this.

Re: Pandora on ATT Tilt

I have downloaded and installed the cab on my fuze and it works great!  But like I said you will have to pay for it after 1 day.  Over at XDA they have used this cab on a lot of Windows Mobile devices to include the Tilt and it has worked well for most!.. Note: you cant use Pandora over WiFi, you must use ATTs data network!  Also if you try and get the program from Pandora they will said your device is not supportted.  You must use the cab file from XDA!

I downloaded the cab file from xda yesterday and got it to work on my Tilt but with some severe layout issues (There are parts of the page that aren't visible at all). All the necesssary functions do work though so it doesn't seem like it would be too much work for Pandora to reformat the layout to work on a Tilt sized screen.
 
THE BIG PROBLEM --- ATTN. ATT&T FORUM MONITORS !!!!!! 
 
Is being charged $8.99 a month for a service that's FREE on the iphone. My wife has an iphone, I paid more for my AT&T Tilt than I did for her iphone. And I pay more for the unlimited data package on my Tilt than for her iphone data package. Then the iphone gets Pandora for free, while we have to pay $8.99 a month? How does this make any sense to anyone? It's ridiculous.
Sprint charges $2.99 per month which, with including a Pandora on the web subscription(Ad-Free & it times-out at 5hrs rather than 1hr) seems pretty fair.
 
COME ON ATT&T, FIX THIS OBVIOUS TO ANYONE RATE FLAW, BEFORE YOU START TO LOSE CUSTOMERS.

Re: Pandora on ATT Tilt

Not only is it free for iphone users, but people that have free, cheap phones, with a data plan that costs half as much as Tilt/Fuse owners.
It goes deeper than that also. Why should we have to pay extra for Texting as well. A Text message uses less bandwidth than a voice call, but the cell carriers try to squeeze every last penny out of your pockets.

I personally think that is such a slap in the face for us who already pay alot of money for our phones/plans! If it wasn't for Skyfire timing out when the screen turns off, it would be a perfect solution!

I haven't ever been able to use Pandora on Skyfire, or heard of anyone else able to (other than many, many versions ago of both from old forums) How were you able to get it to work?

Re: Pandora on ATT Tilt

I didn't misread the post. The issue the person I was asking said they had was Skyfire timing out when the screen turned off, implying that otherwise "it would be the perfect solution". So if they got it to work until the device powered off, turning off the power saving option would resolve that.

I installed the cab that I found on the PPCGeeks forum (not pandora's site) and it's working just fine w/o any monthly fee.

It's not as pretty (because it's a VGA screen) as the PC version, but it works.

No, you didn't misread my post. I did have Pandora running using Skyfire on my Tilt (once), but I have been having problems with my data connection for the last 10 days, so I can recreate it for you to tell you what I did. I had trouble logging onto my Pandora account today on Skyfire using my PC's internet connection. If I can ever get my data connection back, I'll try it again. I'd actually rather try that cab file that is floating around, anyway!
