    I was wondering if it's possible to disable incoming calls yet still be connected to the 3G data network? I'd like to stream Pandora to a stereo for several hours without worrying about notifications (disabled those) and phone calls.

    I know there's airplane mode, but that doesn't allow me to stream music over the internet. Anyone know if this is possible?

    Not that I know of, perhaps you could just forward your calls while you're streaming?

    Google Voice has a "do not disturb" feature which would accomplish what you're looking for. But to make that work you'd have to get an invite, and switch all your friends to using the new number. (You can force them to update by sending out the announcement with your new Google Voice number, and then changing your "real" number and not telling anyone the new one.)

    Another option would be to set up a wifi router at the desired location. You can pull Pandora over wifi while the phone is in airplane mode.
