using my iPhone more and more

with AOL Radio, Pandora and LastFM apps for my iPhone - and extra audio jack adapters and power cords.... I'm finding that my iPhone is on almost all the time.

I hook it up to my stereo and use Pandora over my wifi connection. I even tested the slow-*** Edge network in my car and believe it or not these music services stream ok on the network with minimal buffering.

Granted the quality isn't great, but I'm more concerned with access than quality.

So much for a Roku or whatever it was I was drooling over - that wasn't compatible with WPA on wireless networks. And so much for satellite radio - with their repetitious playlists.

all this makes the price tag for us original 'victims' much more tolerable.

I kind of equate my excitement over all the new apps and added functionality to how I felt about my PalmPilot in 1997 when there were tons of developers cranking out all kinds of new apps.

I guess the good thing about being an early-adopter is that my ATT plan is cheaper than the new ones. Thank goodness for unlimited data!

AT&T's terms and conditions

In reply to: using my iPhone more and more

apparently AT&T allows web browsing and email on their network, but not "web broadcasting".

so will they block it, or charge me extra (with or without warning)?

I wonder if this verbiage was on my original contract with them. But I guess they can modify the terms of use constantly and we have no choice but to agree with them or leave.

Make them prove you were streaming.
Streaming is the future, everyone will store their music in the cloud one day.

iTuner is a great radio app as well

In reply to: using my iPhone more and more

Totally worth the 6 bucks. It lets you stream just about any internet radio station you want at a variety of bitrates. 128 kbps stations stream fine for me over EDGE after a little bit of buffering.

I don't think AT&T will crack down on streaming apps. I imagine anything Apple allows to be sold over the iTunes store has been vetted for use on the network.
