    sounds like a sketch answer considering it's supposed to be a full 24h trial and not a limited use trial. But i did a battery pull and it seemed to have fixed the issue. I think it had to do with cache or something like that cause i noticed it wasn't playing the song that was listed as "Playing Now".

    Battery pull was successful for me also. Thanks for the idea.

    holy low quality batman!

    I know that it's streaming on edge, but the audio quality is insanely bad. Definitely 24kbit mp3 (given that EDGE around here maxes out at around 40kbps, I guess I can't complain.)

    just chiming in- I haven't not heard music yet. I have been hearing O & A without interruption or issues.

    Also the application asks for access to your phone, not phone logs. It is configuring itself to your network settings (wifi, EDGE, etc- google maps asks for the same thing)

    Just to get XM Comedy and O & A uncensored would be great. I hope there is a special price plan for current XM subscribers.

    I'm running the 4.5 beta and it says I need to update my OS to download. LOL So yep it's not compatible with the newer OSes.

    I don't think its too bad! Ease of use is incredibly simple. However since it uses data there is that "buffering" lapse in music! I will try the battery pull and see if that helps on that issue! Not sure if its worth 8 dollars a month though. You would have figured they could have come up with a way to make it actual sattelite radio especially with the GPS enabled phones!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I just hope they add more urban/adult contemporary channels.

    It's not worth it, 20 channels (just one Jazz), a little buffering, you're better off getting Flipside and a descent Card and put whatever music and enjoy their awesome Album Cover as well as a very interactive playlist. XM on BB is just not worth the monthly fee, and the sound quality sucks, Flipside Rocks Hard!

    If sirius streams the way xm does then no. They stream using wma format blackberries dont support windows formats. I assume this program transcodes on the server level which may also be the cause of some peoples quality problems. I have been using the same technique using uXm and orb player but it requires my home pc to be on 24/4 and the uXm server will hiccup every once in a while and wont work again till I restart.

    There merger between XM and Sirius was approved recently so sooner or later it will all be 1. When I had a WM phone I streamed Sirius via a 3rd party app that streamed it over the web and it worked really well.

    ~via BB so far so good. I only tried it on my pearl. Once I get my curve fixed then ill yet it on there for audio quality. On my pearl it sounded a little muffled. (wap.pinstack.com)~

    AT&T / Cingular has had this for about 6 months, minus the comedy stations. It has always cut in and out on my 8800. Seems to lose network connections often.
