2. There is no memory card in the mobile phone, or the music is not in the expected directory of the memory card. Consequently, the data cannot be found by the phone. 3. With some mobile phones or Bluetooth® players, the volume of the music being played by PCM depends on the volume setting on the mobile device. In this case, it may be necessary to increase the volume on the mobile phone or Bluetooth® player. 4. In simple implementations, the same command is used to operate the functions ‘Play’ and ‘Pause’. In this case, no feedback on the current status of the player is given. This may result in the player being paused instead of playing. With some phones, the problem also occurs after a phone call but can generally be solved by pressing the volume control twice or pressing the arrow buttons. Otherwise, it will be necessary to start the audio player from the mobile phone itself on this occasion.

4. On some networks, it is not possible to conduct a telephone call and use data traffic at the same time. As a result, the online search would not be available during a call. 5. On rare occasions, the connection to either the Aha server or the Google server may be lost temporarily. In these cases, too, the online search will be unsuccessful.

Why are programs in Aha sometimes unavailable? Programs from the list of presets or newly added programs from Aha Radio may be temporarily unavailable. The reason is that behind each program is a content server and this might be down for the time being, e.g. for maintenance purposes. Aha regularly checks all offered programs for their availability. Programs that are no longer available are removed from the content automatically. Entries in the presets list on the phone and PCM, however, are not deleted automatically. If a preset does not feed data for some time, this preset will have to be deleted manually by the user. Some programs may require their own log-in. This cannot be done on PCM, but only ever on the mobile phone.

SIM card A SIM card (SIM – Subscriber Identity Module) is a mandatory requirement to gain access to a GSM network. In addition to network-specific information used to authenticate the subscriber, a SIM card can be used to carry user data, e.g. phone book contacts and SMS text messages. The card can be PIN-protected to prevent unauthorised access to these data.

Web radio Web radio (or Internet radio) is an audio service distributed by radio stations online. In PCM, web radio is accessible via the Aha Radio App installed on a compatible smartphone (iPhone ® or Android® device), a feature that has been supported since November 2012.
