Anyone else experiencing phantom song skipping while using Pandora. I will be just listening to some tunes, not touching the phone and all of a sudden it will just skip to the next song. This happens probably 2-3 times an hour.

Any Ideas?

This happens to me on my HTC Evo. If I'm at the gym it seems to skip tracks more noticeably if I bump my phone or move it. Very frustrating...

My wife and I have both had a number of problems with Pandora on our phones, even when we were using BBs and not Android phones. The main issue I've had with Pandora on a mobile device is that it seems to have trouble getting the stream going again after encountering loss of a signal or a even a weak signal. It will sometimes sit for minutes without doing anything. Sometimes, I have to close the app down and restart it just to get it playing again.

I only recently learned that Pandora actually limits usage to so many hours per month. If they expect mobile users to pay for a subscription to their premium service, they really need to make their mobile app more robust. Honestly, if it were more reliable, I would seriously consider paying for Pandora One, but since I mostly use it on my Droid, it would only frustrate me to pay for something that has so many hiccups.

Now, if I had a Google TV device that could stream Pandora over my home network and through my sound system, that might be enough to change my mind...
