I can stream Slacker on my phone for hours without a problem. No data issues either since I've still got the unlimited data package. It just isn't convenient for me to use my phone for music when I'm driving. It's too much fussing around to plug it in, open an app, pick a station etc. If I get or need to make a call it's a pain to deal with too. It's easier for me to just drop a radio in the dock and go.I was thinking about getting a new radio. Now after reading all these posts I know now is not the time to get this radio. Just like shabadoo25 says.... why pay $400 for a radio when an app does the same thing for free? Seriously 5 skips an hour? No way!
By the way Hectic when you upgrade with Verizon to an LTE phone you can use your phone as your main radio. My buddy has the Razr Maxx with unlimited data of course and he hasn't dropped a signal with the Sirius App since he's had the phone.
Even with the limitations, the Lynx still seems like a pretty good radio.
