Hi Guys


With the news that Pandora is pulling out of NZ I assume that the service will still work in NZ as expected with a VPN/DNS Service. As pointed out in another thread, Pandora seems to be connecting to US servers when I am at home and my router DNS is setup with dns4me. All ads are from the USA.


When driving in my car however, and making use of 3G/4G Vodafone data, I am connected to NZ servers, and I hear NZ based ads. (Anybody heard of a Pony called Thunder? Its the only NZ ad they seem to play!)


So was wondering if its possible to change DNS setting on my phone for 3G/4G data to dns4me, instead of the vodafone default ones.


I'm using an iphone 6s, and mostly use Pandora while driving.

On Andriod I use Pepes DNS changer - there may be something similar in the apple app store?
(not an iPhone user so can's say for sure)


I use that for my mobile phone on wireless data and suspect it should work fine on mobile data.
Its sets up a VPN network to nowhere (itself?) in the process of changing the phones DNS servers but does not require root access which is nice.

Thanks for the tip. Don't really want the hassle of having to start a seperate app, or vpn on my phone to get it to work. But if thats the only option then thats what I will have to do.
