    If any of you have a car with one of those sweet iPod jacks preinstalled, I managed to stream Pandora through my car ('09 Sonata) speakers yesterday. Normally, if I close the "Accessory attached" screen, my car loses connection to the iPhone.

    1. You need to have Backgrounder installed first.
    2. Plug in the iPhone to your iPod jack. On mine car, it comes up with the white "Accessory attached" screen. Hold down the home button to "Background" the accessory attached screen.
    3. Open Pandora or another music application and play it.
    4. (Optional) Cancel your XM Radio subsciption ;)

    True, the sound quality is not as good and there is no Howard Stern :)
    Works great for cheapskates like me though!

    Yeah it's certainly an awesome free alternative. Although I could never give up Sirius. I'm hoping they bring the Sirius app to the iPhone soon. That's what I miss about 1.1.4.

    Fk howard.....
    Fk pandora...
    use application called tuner, (or a similar one) or even last.fm (if you have playlists)

    choose 128 bit streams.....
    connect your iphone to your car's aux in....

    That's it...thousands of stations, sound quality is way better than my bmw sirius.... and it's free!

    Been using it since the first day.
