    Hi guys

    I just tried Pandora over over EDGE (oh well over to modified $5.99 T-zone package) and work like a dream. At this point I'm an area with good coverage so results maybe different in other locations.

    Anyway has anyone tested the "tolerance limits" from T-mobile regarding the data downloading? I was just thinking of using it as a radio while bike riding or driving... but I'm just thinking that I might end up with large amount of downloaded data at the end of the month

    Well, new G1's data limit is 1G but that's $25 3G plan.. I don't know about t-zone plan. I'm guess it's much lower than that.

    Update: I just used it Pandora while driving in Malibu canyon - In this road there are 1-2 places where I'm usually getting disconnected - the FM radio is also bad there... anyway Pandora was working perfectly and didn't skip/stop even for a second!!! Just amazing!

    Btw I didn't do anything to get the EDGE working, I just used the new setting for APN (epc.tmobile.com).

    Have you done any network speed tests? I would be interested to know what the numbers are with the new setting. I can't do it myself as I am on the $19.99 plan and I know it will not work with it.

    With the new or the old T-Zones trick, I'm always getting around 140-160kpbs.

    Btw I just checked on T-Mobile's website and it seems that there is no download limit on T-Zones (probably thought that they don't need it due to the slow speed)...
