    why has my iPad stopped streaming radio stations? It worked overseas and in NSW and QLD, but has not worked since going to NT and SA...is there a problem with these states or my iPad?
    Sorry, I am an old fa#t and not that computer literate.

    Two questions, is the iPad 4G (in other words, has a SIM on a data plan) and what app are you using to stream the radio stations?

    Thanks for the reply, yes it is 4G And I have tried several apps, Streema, Tune in, Listen live and direct stream from the radio stations.

    Also, sometimes the station connects but no sound, usually though it tries to switch on and then just turns off leaving a picture of the station showing.

    You probably know this, but, If you are tying to use it out and about, make sure Cellular Data, LTE, and the apps that you are trying to use are all turned on under Settings > Cellular.

    Also, have you tried streaming when you have a wi-fi connection, and does it work then?

    If it does not work with wi-fi, there's a strong possibility that you are running into some kind of regional restrictions. Those can be a pain to work around.

    I seldom use Wi Fi as I am currently travelling around in my caravan, when a park has had WI Fi it still does not work, strangely, my iPhone allows some station like the ABC to be be streamed, not my iPad however.

    I'm wondering if it is a general lack of cellular data available out in those country areas. What network is your SIM connecting to?

    Sorry, I don't know?? I told you I was an old f#rt. (lol)

    It seems that even though I have email access and forum access, my streaming of radio isn't.

    True. Actually in the top left of your screen you should see 5 dots (a mix of solid and/or empty dots), followed by the name of your provider, then, if on wifi, you should see the wifi fan. What does it say up there?

    I've never had any trouble with TuneIn, have not tried the others. Have you tried multiple stations, or are you trying one specific station?
