    Over the past 2~3 weeks I've noticed numerous instances of Slacker not advancing to the next track (spinning circle leading to "Could not load next track"). For example, will start listening to a Slacker station or specific artist, plays through 2 or 3 songs, then glitches. When I push the forward button, it often just replays the song already in buffer, or does nothing, but does not advance. I was hopeful the update to 6.2 "188" would solve this, but same problem both before and after. Rebooting main screen and reloading Slacker account has not improved this. Verified each time I had 3 or more bars on 3G wireless. Location: San Jose, CA. I don't mind the occasional instability, but it seems more consistently unstable today than several weeks ago.

    Are others seeing this too? Any solutions uncovered? Thanks!

    I think it is a bandwidth issue. Too many requests for too little spectrum and then we see delayed buffering.

    @Lloyd : if your correct about this being a bandwidth issue, that would mean others are experiencing the same thing. Also strange that it has only been bad these past few weeks.
