While listening to a station on Pandora with cellular data, it suddenly stopped playing. I checked and use cellular data is selected I have plenty of data available. I have rebooted the phone (didn't work). Uninstalled and reinstalled the app. I have the lasted update for iPhone. Pandora just only works with WiFi now. Please help!

here's the solution for Playing Pandora while using cellular data
1. go to your settings and turn-off the wi-fi
2. start Pandora
this is the only solution that I've found that works for me.
Had the same problem! I’ve heard these restrictions on mobile cellular data were put, because of the multiple cases of expensive cellular data in the US and how children were spending it unknowingly. However, in my country it is so cheap, we sometimes stay on it even at home.
I found a good solution on Multitechverse. You need to go into the Settings of your iphone, find the cellular data and put a tick at the pandora using cellular data. Also you could do that from the app itself. It’s not hard, so I’m sure you’ll solve your problem quickly!
Hi @WilliamhGibsona 👋
Thanks for reporting and letting us know.
Just to be sure are you located in the United States? If not, Sadly, we can only legally offer Pandora services to listeners located in the United States at this time. Which is why you might be experiencing issues when playing Pandora.
This applies equally to free and paid accounts, as well as Pandora on all computers and supported devices, including offline.
Audio content streaming regulations differ from country to country, and we are still working on acquiring the proper licenses so we can offer Pandora in even more places around the world.
However, if you are located in the United States please, let's try some troubleshooting steps to see if this will help.
I've enabled a trace on your account and for this trace to be helpful please complete our iOS Troubleshooting Steps.
Lastly, if you're still having trouble playing Pandora out of wifi, Could you tell me more about your device?
Are you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data when this is happening?
Have you identified any other patterns or notable information?
Thanks for your help with this. 🤝
I’m also running into this issue with Pandora on my phone. It just will not play when on cellular.
Device: iPhone 12 Pro
Pandora Version: 2307.1
I try to keep my phone and apps up to date as much as possible. This issue started in the past week or so. Pandora is set to use cellular data on my Settings, I have Launch in Car ticked, I have 4 offline stations just in case (not even those play…Pandora just doesn’t work when not on wifi), I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled the app, rebooted my iPhone multiple times. I’ve plugged my phone directly into my car’s USB port… same thing.
I’m guessing it’ll be fine on the next update…I just really don’t want to use Spotify. Blech.
Thank you for your time.
