Data Saving Tips 

Play your music over Wi-Fi so you will not go over your data plan package.

Use our Data Estimator tool to ensure that you have the right data plan for your needs.

Subscription versions have off–line playback of your select stations that do not use data and there is no loss of connectivity when you do not have a signal. Plus it improves your phone's battery life. The space available depends on the device's memory capacity.
