    I got the ICS update yesterday using the manual install method (thanks, JayWill72!) and so far I love it. I've run into a small hiccup, though:

    Pandora doesn't work. At all. I've signed in, tried playing a station, and all that happens is an infinite buffer loop. It'll give up, move to the next track, attempt to buffer and repeat.

    Is there a workaround for this issue? Or should I just wait for an update?

    From Whiterun, with love.

    Just downloaded Pandora and mines works fine as well. Did you do a factory reset after you installed ICS? Just curious.

    Yeah, I did a factory reset. You would think that would have solved any issues. :/

    I'm not even using an android, just using the online player, and I've been having issues with it all week. The audio is glitchy, like listening to a CD that has been scratched. I tried again a few hours ago and the site was extremely slow to load. It doesn't appear to be a problem with my internet service as all other sites and streaming content works fine.

    Having the same issue. Worked fine before I upgraded to ICS. Get's to 1, or 2% buffer and skips on 3G. Works fine on Wifi. Tried all sorts of things to fix it but no go. New PRLs, erasing proxy settings, clearing data, reinstalling, older versions of the Pandora app ect.. Only way I can get it to work is to force roaming to Verizon. Even on their 1xRTT network with bandwidth of about 120kbps it seems to work no problem. It isn't a speed issue since i'm getting 1.2mbps on Sprint 3G.

    Same issue on a friend's Galaxy S3, Sprint. It has to be something with Sprint, ICS and Pandora. Not sure what is going wrong in that combination.

    Having the same problem, buffering 2% then loading and skipping songs over and over. This didn't start happening until I received a big update from Sprint to my Galaxy S2. I have removed the battery like suggested from Pandora help and uninstalled the app and reinstalled several times. It worked for about two songs each time I uninstalled and went right back to the buffering and loading but never played. My boyfriend has ATT IPHONE and is not having this problem with his Pandora.

    On every leaked build and the OTA ICS ive had on my phone, pandora would buffer like crazy on wifi or 3g. It never did it on Gingerbread.

    Same as everyone else here too. WOrks fine on wifi, but no go on 3G. It used to work just fine. Can't wait for my new phone to arrive with gingerbread back on it.

    Hmm, still no fix. Really disappointing. :/

    I guess I'm sticking with 8tracks until something changes.

    UPDATE: I rooted my phone and flashed AOKP Milestone 6, and Pandora now works on 3G. If you're comfortable with doing such things, it fixes a few other things as well. My battery drain has been significantly reduced, among other things.

    I had the same thing happening to mine for a few days and I was getting mad...

    so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, restarted my phone with a battery pull and it is now working fine. Hope it stays that way!

    I just used Pandora for the first time (since the ICS update) the other day. It worked just fine for me over 3G. But then, ICS has been pretty solid for me overall, whereas, it has not been so smooth for others.
