How to Stop Using Cellular Data in the Pandora iPhone App

Unlimited cellular data plans are becoming less and less common, and the limited amount of data that you can use on your mobile phone is rather expensive. You chip away at that monthly data allotment each time that an app downloads data from the Internet when you are connected to your cellular network. Some apps only need to download a small amount of data, so they will have a minimal impact on your data allotment, but other apps need to constantly download data in order to function properly.

The most data-intensive apps are those that stream media, such as video and music. Video streaming services like Netflix use much more data than music streaming services like Pandora, but it can still add up over time. So if you find that Pandora is the cause of any issues with your cellular data usage, then you may decide to block Pandora from using your cellular data. Our guide below will show you how.
