That thread is ok but is mainly folk saying either it works or it doesn't. I am having trouble creating an account, slacker website just goes round and round in circles!

I now see that slacker only works in the "good ol US of A". Is there an equivalent that will work in the UK?

Slacker is too big a file and it clogs your phone buffering. try flycast radio instead. i even listen to it thru my bluetooth. small file and much faster than slacker.

I had the opposite experience. Slacker works great on my device, but FlyCast barely worked at all.

I noticed on an iphone advert that it supports last.fm. Anyone know of a way to get it on a BB?

exact same for me, except that flycast didn't work whatsoever. slacker is a smooth free app, and i'm happy with it

I have Slacker on my pearl and have had no problems at all streaming, works perfect for me each time. Even started to listen to them at work on the PC.

How does the PC Slacker component download to the SD card? I loaded the piece of software but it doesn't seem to do anything about getting content to by blackberry. Does anyone have this buffer thing working? Their FAQ doesn't offer any guidance.
