No, I was in Singapore. Try to ask your friend here who has WeChat RMB money in the account to send you RMB 1.0 to see if that helps. And try to set the language to Chinese.

Edit: answer by sensei83 already.

Anyone has experience with VPN which will definitely work with Pandora Radio?

I will be finally off from crappy VQ but one downside is to have VPN for listening Pandora.

thanks for the inputs sir..
but sound kinda difficult for me..
this is the 1st time i am hearing the word SSR..

Should be not that difficult. This YouTubers is not a pro but rather an actor. He has YouTube videos on the above three steps.

I do not have the need to use paid VPN yet. So far China Tunnel is good enough for my needs, in fact I do not really need it either because I have good enough apps under iPhone and Android TV box for my entertainment needs (Madarin, a bit of Cantonese and Hokkien).

Android: go to local Facebook group “New TV Box SG) for all the good stuff, much more than iOS

ss = shadowsocks
ssr = shadowsocksR
they are the same except ssr has more encryption options u may use.
but v2ray and brook also getting popular. wireguard picking up also as some blocked ip when using wireguard able to bypass GFW. it's still in early stage development. IOS app only available on testflight now.
i'm actually newbie also. no IT background.

if u read mandarin, for starter go read up @ doub.io

i've been working there for years.
PRC there do not use the old VPN for youtube or gaming.
they use SSR/V2Ray/shadowguard. speed was much much better than VPN
watch 4k video super smooth. due to using premium CN2 network
Dun worry too much abt ip ban.
you can also 回墙watch geo-blocked chinese streams

basically they buy VPS from google/alicloud/amazon..e.g
some become provider. most well known and expensive was rixcloud
check this review https://www.evernote.com/shard/s609/...c350e6c55ac4c3

there's many free ssr server too on telegram group and google+
but telegram was blocked in china. u need to add sock5 by clicking this address on ur phone to auto add or use those here

i'm using cordcloud provider. simi 19大 or garment meeting also stay open
this angmo in china written a simple guide
Sorry to quote your earlier post but that Angmo has nice updates for simple guide and chronological update to China vpns.

Nice website for SS on vps

That is supposed to be the case.
Edit to add: you can always try one month first.

But you can try free XiaMi music 虾米音乐first, you can listen to and download a lot of music.

Edit to add:
For VIP, then QQ Music is better than XiaMi Music.

Alright thanks. Might give QQ music VIP a month trial and see how it goes.

Only option for payment is WeChat pay? Possible to pay directly through app store? iOS app seems to have geoblock or smth..

For iOS app you can directly pay through Apple App Store.

For Android, I need to check. I am using iPhone 6S now.

As per website info you can pay by WeChat wallet.

https://media.weibo.cn/article?id=23...pfrom=weibocom

Log in using your WeChat account and pay by 微信零钱.

How to sign up a QQ music account? It seems that it needed a china mobile number to sign up? Regarding the taobao auto top up, is it reliable?

I signed up for QQ Music simply by installing the app from Apple App Store and sign in with my WeChat account. But the free version is practically useless here in Singapore without using VPN. Still you can use Transocks/SpeedIn VPN free version to try QQ Music out before you buy.

Edit to add: QQ Music is not even available from Google App Store in my Mi Max 1 Global Version.

On the other hand XiaMi music free version is good enough for me, tested both the iOS version and Android Version using Mi Max and Oppo R11S.

Edit to add:
You can sign up WeChat account with Singapore Mobile Number.

You can also sign up XiaMi music account with Singapore Mobile number.
