Sprint makes Pandora free of charge
Sprint subscribers now have the opportunity to enjoy Pandora… for free! Don’t worry, we’re not talking about Pandora’s Box here, we’re talking about the personalized radio service. The requirements for this are to have a compatible handset and a data plan. So far, the charge that Sprint users had to pay was $2.99, which isn’t that bad, considering that Sprint was the first carrier to offer a mobile version of Pandora, which, is now supported on many popular phones.

"This is a very significant move for Sprint and for the mobile industry more broadly", said Tim Westergren, Founder of Pandora. We’re not that sure if this is really such a memorable move for the mobile industry; we’d rather prefer a 4-inch touchscreen phone, but Pandora is also fine…

Here is a list of the compatible Sprint phones.

Tried this with an Instinct. It streamed well but the volume was really low. Haven't had time to mess around with it to see if that's fixable, but otherwise it worked very well. That being said, it's unusable for me if the volume level I got is the best it could do.

Have you tried it yet on the Pro? http://www.pandora.com/on-windowsmobile They show the 6900 so it may work on 6950 and 6850 too.
