internet radio phone app- will it batter my data allowance?
If you’re on Orange you can text “Bundles” to 150 and it tells you how much you have left. I started using Spotify and then internet radio and found by texting each day for 3 days I was burning about 30Mb data for every hour listened to.
On my package that was too much so I stopped using it.Posted 4 years agoryderredmanMember
I feel sorry for your poor little antenna!
Are you using an android phone?
Could I possibly recommend google play music? If you run windows/mac you have a little client to upload music to your google account. This is stored on the net and you can download the music from your library as and when you like (just do it when you have wifi connection). I have loads of playlists that i just either stream or sync to my device.

I used to use TuneIn Radio to listen to 6Music, usually from 10am, (to avoid George Lamb), until 3.30pm, when I went home. Over five days, that used 500Mb, so 1Gb monthly allowance is gone in a fortnight.
You could try 3, as they still have unlimited data, but their signal is usually weak and patchy, even around towns.

the data isn’t, and that’s the point.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

if your on android just look for data usage by appBigJohnSubscriber
I drove from Manchester to Stafford yesterday and couldn’t bear listening to the tennis and my cheap tesco portable DAB radio was in the car. I put it on the passenger seat and got perfect uninterrupted reception all the way. Having snapped the aerial, and only having a 30mm stub I was surprised.Posted 4 years agoJustAnotherLoginSubscriber
I found that apart from the data, the dropping of the signal whilst the train is moving rather annoying.
I now use podcasts of radio shows instead. The phone uses wifi to download any new shows from my list when it’s in the house without me having to do anything and then I can listen to the podcast on the train. No data costs. No dropped signals. Works nice.
The settings mean older shows automatically get deleted so the phone doesn’t get bloated either.Posted 4 years ago
