Q: If I have an iPhone with 200MB of monthly data transfer, how much data does Pandora radio use up say in 8 hours?
In 8 hours you’d totally blow past your limit.
I don’t have any official numbers, but probably around 30-50megs an hour from different estimates I’ve seen.
Use AT&T’s iphone app to monitor your data usage. With a limit of only 200 MB you’re going to have to keep a close eye on it anyway.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Pandora, Slacker Radio will allow you to cache stations via Wifi in advance, and you can listen to them while you’re out.
Note that it goes require a slacker membership after the first week or two of use.
