    I listen to live streamed radio over the Internet, with apps like radio.com and others. Listening to Pandora is another example. When using LTE (and not wi-fi) to do so, like in the car, does that count against my phone's data pan?

    Of course, its data, and in imo, streaming (radio and video) probably represent the large chunk of data usage.

    I think the OP thinks there is a radio inside and got confused.

    Did the name 'INTERNET radio', not give it away?

    Was this directed at me?
    If so.
    I read it and understood, but does the OP do, seems HE is confused, not me.

    If not, sorry.

    So many bolded workds..let me try.

    I like drinking water. If I turn on the faucet and use water that's coming out of it, will that make my water bill go up? Sometimes I buy bottled water, but if I'm in my house, with the faucets on, is that using water?

    Is this a serious question?
