An iPod Touch with the following specs:

  • 2nd Generation
  • Version 4.2.1 (8C148)
  • Model: MC086LL

Stopped playing the Pandora app. with the following error:

Cannot Connect to Pandora

Please check your network connection and try again later.

This iPod Touch was working fine 2 weeks ago then starting getting this error. I'm connected to the internet and other apps like Safari work fine.

How can I resolve this?

I found the solution! The solution was to set the Date to the correct Date. It was set to 1969 for some reason:-/

  • Settings->General->Date&Time
  • That stinks! :) I'm glad you discovered that :)

Go to Ap Store and check for pending updates


I had the same problem with my iPhone (3rd gen) and iPod Touch with Pandora. Cured both with simply powering off, waiting about 30 seconds then powering back on.
