Ditto. There are several. Try them all and see which if any appeals to you.

I too like Pandora. The hook with it is you design your stations. The player still selects the music, but you tell it what you like. And if you interact with it and provide seeds and feedback, it's pretty darn accurate at picking what you like.

I use Radio Companion. I don't subscribe to it since I find it somewhat expensive (it is not a 1 time fee but re-occurring charges) but the free version is fine for my needs.

I would like to try Pandora but unfortunately I don't live in the US.

I agree with most - I use Pandora.

I had Slacker Radio on my 9000 but I found using any of these will drain your battery quick. I loaded a memory card full of music and that's what I use now. Doesn't go dead as quick.

I don't have experience with another app for comparison, but I don't think Pandora hits the battery that bad. That said, I don't use it when it's possible I could get stuck without a wall outlet for a long time, such as when flying. (In those instances I'll use an mp3 player.)

Moved to Aftermarket Software.

Method, please update your profile. It shows you have 7100t and you say you have a Bold.

You can also point your browser to yourmuze.fm and select internet stations from around the world. No app required.

I think this is a great solution - better than an app if you want real stations. iHeartRadio is good too but it's limited to Clear Channel stations.

One more person suggesting Muze FM. The mobile browser address is:

m.yourmuze.fm

This is important because if you go to the www.muze address on your phone you will not get anything to stream.

Also an unlimited data plan will keep you from going broke.

i think ihearthradio has the best stations. The app is nothing to great but stations come in clear and the choices are just endless.

Thanks for the yourmuze.fm tip. That is useful. Only downside on the blackberry is you can't browse or else break the connection to yourmuze. I guess it would be possible to browse with a third party browser, but I haven't tried. Still useful though.
