Sorry, Im not much for scouring through forums. Bought an S3 recently, got 2 problems (so far)...

1) I listen to Pandora, screen off, and immediately after the song ends nothing else comes on. When I go to turn screen back on the phone looks for a connection and continues onto next song.

2) I also use winamp (im sure there is better out there, but its what I use), also when the song ends nothing else comes on until I turn on screen...

Besides having the screen on all the time what can I do? I have turned off the turn-over mute thing.

Any help is greatly appreciated

It sounds as though your S3 is turning off the data connection when it goes to 'sleep'. assuming this is happening over wifi go into your Wifi's advanced settings and adjust the 'Keep wifi on' settings to your preferred choice.

Hi, I am not so sure that is exactly what is occurring - maybe for Pandora, but shouldn't also affect winamp, assuming winamp is playing music that is on the SD card or phone? Kdidley - can you confirm?

Personally I love and use Poweramp (can't stand the Samsung music player and Google music has a long way still to go). It is a paid for app, but its has had functions and features that other players are only starting to get.

What version of android are you on, are you using a dev rom, and are you streaming the music or using what is on your drive.

The only other thing I can think of is playlists. I am not really used to Winamp - tried it ages ago but dumped it in favour of poweramp and have never used pandora, however I know that some apps use playlists exclusively (poweramp gives you the choice) - if these are using playlists exclusively then it would only play that song, you have to assign every song that you want it to play to the play list (sorry I don't know your level of knowledge so if you already know this, please ignore this). Dumped a whole lot of apps due to this reason.

Have you tried the standard music app that comes with the phone (i.e. samsungs one) - its called Music Player. If not open it, go to the play tab at the top and choose the all option, and start at the first song, it should now play all of then in sequence (unless you turned on shuffle).
If this works then it is the playlist thing.
