    I don't own a Droid yet, but probably will in a week or two, I also don't know squat about smartphones, but here goes anyway. I am a Sirius satellite subscriber, currently I can stream Sirius thru my home computer, would I be able to do the same on the Droid? Please say yes!!

    nooter you can download pandora for free. I thinks it better than satellite cause there is no dejays or commercials and it only plays music you like. I cancelled sirius after I got my droid. I use the aux jack for in the car and pandora.com from home. Go to the website and check it out. Its all free

    I agree with Superglen, I had Sirius for 5 years and got tired of the price increases and switch to the FREE Pandora and Last.FM and haven't missed it at all. Thy them out, they are excellent services for the PC and on your smartphone.

    I think when Sirius and XM merged I think it just wasn't as good a service, but what really pissed me off is that they moved some sports programming from Sirius to XM, and I had no way of getting it without also having the XM side. They moved College and Pro Bball, and then increase the monthly charge AND start charging for the Internet service. It' stop being a cheap audio source.

    The $30 a month is unlimited data so even though Pandora uses a crapton of data it matters, not.

    time

    Just remember though....Pandora only gives you 40 hours (or maybe 30 I'd have to check again) of FREE hours per month.

    After that they lock you down until the next month, when you're hours start over OR you can pay some really cheap fee for unlimited hours.

    Still....I LOVE Pandora.

    Another option is the A Online Radio app. If you have an internet radio station that feeds tunes out in .pls format, you can use it. Works for shoutcasts, AAC, AAC+, icecasts and .pls

    I've already got 8.5 gigs of mp3s on my sdcard, so i'm not using it to much lately, but it works great when needed.
