    Does anyone else have this problem? If i stream Sirius Sat or Pandora while my phone is plugged in and CHARGING to my laptop it actually looses power.

    I have to stop streaming audio to let it recharge.

    Streaming off of 3G.

    sounds like charging the phone is a pretty big endeavour. streaming audio might just push the power requirements (the wireless card would be using extra power etc) over the limit. not much you can do unfortuntely :(

    How are you charging your phone ?. USB will limit it to 1/2 amp, which maybe more than it is consuming while streaming, hence the discharge. The mains psu will provide 1 amp which may be enough extra to enable your streaming with a little left over for charging.
