    I'm constantly having freezes and stations just stop working after playing for around 2 hours (30mbps download on wifi) and to get it working I need to delete the station and re-add it. For the crashing/freezing, only a reboot (or respring in the case of a crash) will do.

    iOS 7.0.6, iPhone 5 Verizon.

    iTunes Radio is total trash. Crashes, restarts and too many damn commercials. Also it's like the same 3 commercials over and over. Drives me crazy, I was forced back to pandora

    If you have a slow or weak connection itunes a radio is very flaky.

    and here I thought this was just a 4s (or 4) problem, I am kind of shocked to see 5s people getting resprings.

    it typically takes me about 5-6 trys of going in and out before it starts playing

    It's just a bad program. I have LTE wherever I go and still have issues with it so it's not a data thing

    Just cause you show LTE doesn't mean you have a solid connection. Various factors can contribute. 9 out of 10 times I have noticed that iTunes Radio becomes very unstable with a poor connection.

    I'm starting to come to that conclusion.

    I REALLY want to like iTunes Radio but it seriously needs work. Crashes maybe 20-30% of the time and the same commercial over and over will definitely drive you mad. Every so often, I'll get the same song like 4 times out of 10.

    Pandora is crowded with ads too, but at least the music selection was polished.

    ----------

    I use it on my commute and at home. I really haven't noticed a difference in stability on LTE vs wifi on my 5S

    I have even noticed the same song loops in channels. Same order and all.

    Yep Im done with iTunes radio until they not only fix the crashing problems but the quality of the selections and get MORE THAN 2 FREKAING ADVERTISERS! All Progressive and Nissan ads.

    Just use Pandora.

    I actually don't mind the ads, particularly if the alternative is to pay.

    The problem is that they are repetitive. That's what's annoying.
