XM launches radio on BlackBerry

22 Comments

XMHow does 20 commercial-free, 24-hour radio stations on your BlackBerry sound? Pretty good, especially for $7.99/month. QuickPlay and XM Radio have teamed up to bring comedy, country, talk, hip-hop and any other radio station you would want to hear to your BlackBerry. AT&T’s been supporting XM radio services for a little while, but the service is significantly opened up and expanded with this QuickPlay partnership. Any BlackBerry packing OS 4.2 and up is good to go, so head on over to www.xmradio.com/bb for a free 24-hour trial. Stay tuned for more news out of Las Vegas!

    I would not pay for this.
    1) poor quality (data stream on a BB) for that price, when regular high qual. service is only a few bucks more.
    2) it ties up the BB on data and prevents phone calls from coming through.

    I tried this for several days and it was terrible. The audio would cut in and out. Example listen to a song hear the first part of the song and cuts out and now I am hearing the middle part of the song. This was with a full signal.

    I downloaded it on my US Cellular 8830 and it told me that the service is only available in the United States. I AM in the United States, although Wisconsin is in the Frozen tundra, it isn’t Canada.

    Upon XM Radio app first launch, Blackberry permission dialog shows “Application is trying to access your phone logs. Continue?”

    What the heck?

    Too bad it doesn’t work if you have 4.3 or higher! Rotflmao! You think they would have made a wonderful service like this for the new OS of BlackBerry, not the old one. More info @ pinstack.com.

    I am located in South Carolina on SunCom network, and it says that this application is only for the United States. I guess the program thinks I’m not in the U.S. WTF?

    Why does it need to access my phone logs when it first starts up? Yeah, I’ll pass, thank you very little.
