I am doing some work for a client who has a vacation house without internet service.  They do have a local network with an Airport Extreme and an Airport Express.


They want to be able to use their Sonos system to play music off of Pandora/Spotify from their phone. Obviously they need to be connected to wifi to see the players but they need to rely on their data plan to stream the music from the internet. 


Is there a way to force data when connected to wifi that has no internet connection?  I heard this was a feature of iOS 6 but I just can't get it to work.


Thanks to anyone who can shed some light. It's greatly appreciated.
