Galaxy S3 Pandora/Slacker stopped working

My Pandora and Slacker stopped working today. It worked for about a week and now it just loads over and over again. I have data, 366 kbps, slow, but enough to stream music. They work over WiFi.

 

I've tried:

-Updating prl and profile

-Uninstalling and reloading the app

-Powering on and off

-Calling sprint tech support which had me factory reset and they re- activated the device OTA

 

Nothing works. Looked it up on the internet and see others have the same issue. One solution I've seen involved changing some data proxy settings, but I'm not sure I want to mess with that.

 

Sprint says its an app issue, but two different apps do the same thing, so I'm thinking its a sprint data settings issue.

 

Anyone else here have this issue? I NEED this to work, I can't do my 2 hour bike rides or train commute without streaming music

OK, just downloaded another streaming music app, mog, and it doesn't work either. 3 different streaming music apps don't work on the galaxy s3. Hardware, software, carrier, app, who knows?

 

Just tried Pandora on the wife's nexus s 4g and it works!

 

So frustrating. Bike ride tomorrow isn't going to be the same.

Sprint's position has been that this is a generalized issue and blames Pandora. Interesting that you find similar problems with Slacker.

 

Yeah, I saw that, but I've tried 3 different streaming music services and none of them work. What is really strange is that it worked this morning.

I've been using tune in radio, works like a charm. I'd been having trouble with the official espn radio app, but I listen to espn radio clear as a bell. Music stations work fine as well

Thanks for the tip, downloaded tune in and it works. You just made my day for tomorrow.

My wife and I are having the same problem on our evo LTE phones. Pandora works over WiFi, but not 3g or LTE. Glad to hear it isn't just us...

 

Used to work fine, even after the of a update, then just stopped.

Did you try 1.5.13?

Got the reply back from pandora, they said they know about it and are working with Sprint to resolve. Pandora makes it sound like a sprint issue.

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
