Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question about our iPhone app? First read our FAQs below, and if that doesn't answer it, send us an email and we'll get back to you.

Where can I use the app?

The Absolute Radio Player is designed for use everywhere, and will work anywhere with an available Wi-Fi, 3G or GPRS connection. If you can't hear us, please check your phone's connection. IMPORTANT! Please read the next FAQ for info on data charges before using the app.

Will it cost me anything?

The Absolute Radio Player is a free download from the iTunes App Store, but you should always check your plan's data usage terms before using the app. If you have an unlimited data plan, such as O2's Pay-Monthly iPhone Tariffs, you should not be charged for using the Absolute Radio Player. We DO NOT recommend you use the Absolute Radio Player unless you have an unlimited data plan. You should also check what your plan says about overseas data usage if you planning on using the app while abroad. Please note that some 'unlimited tariffs' still have data usage limits. Always check first to avoid being charged.

What OS version do I need?

We recommend you have the latest version of the operating system on your device.
