    streaming audio

    Hi, new member here,

    I'm dead set on getting the Curve (verizon) in the next few days, i just have one question: I'm a DJ and i purchase music online all the time from sites such as junodownload.com, beatport.com, samurai.fm.

    Does the Curve have problems streaming realaudio files, or audio files from flash players?

    If anyone lets me know in advance, that would be nice. Thanks.

    Robb

    Depends on the Operating System. I believe the new Curve's will have 4.2.2 as a stock theme, and I believe you would need 4.3 or higher to stream audio files. I Believe, I'm not 100% sure. My old Pearl using 4.2.2 wouldn't do it, but now I use the 8120 which stocks the 4.3 version which streamed the music, and 4.5 will stream video and music!

    thanks for the quick response Justyn. do you know if the 8130 pearl has ver 4.3 and can stream audio? I would just get that one and it is cheaper from verizon.

    Yeah the newer model Pearls will have 4.3

    But you'll find a bunch of 4.5 links to upgrade the OS. I'm using Vodaphone's official release and haven't had one problem yet. Had it for about a month now

    I think the Verizon Curve is the 8330, isn't it? If so, that comes loaded with 4.3.

    But it will not stream from flash players. It will do streaming radio and podcasts from services like moodio or using players like berrytunes.

    If you give me a url or site you want to stream from I may have some time to test it for you. I have an 8330.
