Keep up with the spirit tutorial in this section, I'm going to show you how to listen to Pandora outside of USA for free. For those who don't know what Pandora is, it is a music radio station that is only available in United States.


Step1
Register an iTune account and select country as United States. This step is critical because it allows you to download US-only apps like Pandora, Hulu, Netflix, and etc. Normally, iTune will ask you to select credit card on file but if you click on one of the free app, you can choose "None" as the Option.


Step 2
On your iPhone, go to "Settings", "iTune & App Stores", log out of your current iTune account and log in to your US account

Step 3
Go to App Store, search for Pandora and download it

Step 4
Once you have downloaded it, try to play it. It should play "Not available outside of USA". This is ok because we have one more step. Close your pandora app by doubling clicking the Home button.

Step 5
Here is comes the magic. Instead of using a proxy or VPN, here will simply make a DNS change on your iPhone. Go to Settings, Wi-Fi, click on the blue arrow. Under the field DNS, change it to "206.214.214.28". This DNS is provide by UnoTelly.com . I don't know how it works but when you put in their DNS, you are able to unlock US stuffs.

Step 6
Re-open your Pandora app, voila, your Pandora should be working.


Comments: this approach works with Netflix and Hulu but you need to sign up an account. They do have a free trial. I haven't tried other apps but free feel to contribute to this post.


Comment please:p

This works in Indonesia!
Although there are a few stations that I can't add to my station list (eg. Today's Hits station). I'm trying to add from my iPhone. Not sure if it's my device that's causing the trouble or perhaps the network.

Step 5
Under the field DNS, change it to "206.214.214.28". This DNS is provide by UnoTelly.com
Does this mean that all your data (web browsing, email, imessages) is being sent through UnoTelly's servers? :confused:

If so then this seems like a terribly unsafe idea.
