Looking for a service that emails/text messages NFL sport scores to a handheld and blackberry device. Does anyone have any suggestions or use a program that they could recommend?

If you're on T-Mobile, go to their site and look at the "alerts". You can get most any scores at the end of quarter, inning, period, game, etc.

I use Yahoo alerts. Go to Yahoo.com and go to the mobile section. You can set up alerts for news, weather, sports, etc.....all for free

Oh that is a good idea also... I just checked out the TMO alerts.. the only thing that stinks about that is they only update the scores at the end of each quarter.

Don't know if you are looking for just NFL scores or if you are looking for fantasy football info, but if it is the latter and you have a league on CBS Sportsline, you can now access your league from your 7100.

Sportsline and RIM teamed up to allow you to run your team from the 7100. You get realtime scoring, you can change your lineup, add/drop, etc. As a fantasy football guy, you can't beat it.

Here's the link: http://cbs.sportsline.com/wireless/football/blackberry

Hope that helps.

the yahoo one sends updates as TXT messages so TXT messaging fees will apply...

It allows to you enter an email address instead of it being sent as a text message.

I use my cingular blackberry email account and they are sent via email.

I use the T-Mobile alerts to get Redskins scores at the end of each quarter, and Nextel Cup "scores".

Once you are in the mobile section and logged in, go to the alerts page. There should be link to add a device.

When you add a device, do not choose Mobile Phone. Instead choose, Pager/Other Devices. Once there you can either choose to enter the mobile phone number or an email address.

I have spent hours trying to figure out if/how I can subscribe to any of the CBS Sportsline mobile apps with my phone and provider. With the growing popularity of both fantasy sports and the growing popularity of the BlackBerry for the average Joe, I am surprised that nobody seems to be in the same boat!

Here is the deal:

I have a 7100t with T-Mobile; no BES

I am a fantasy sports freak. baseball, football, basketball on sportsline. I am aware of ways to get sports scores and news, but there are custom apps available that allow you to make transactions and see scoreboards specific to your custom leagues, rosters, teams, etc.

My pain:
1-CBS Sportsline site says go to t-zones to get the app. My device is
unsupported. I just don't believe this. I had graded my browser and firmware to
support java!!

2- Went to handango, while 'inhand' is very cool, apparently they don't carry
any of the sportsline apps

3- Went to mforma, they do carry all of the sportsline apps, but not for my
carrier/phone. In fact, there are no BlackBerry devises listed at all for the T-Mobile carrier.

4- went to the blackberry forum and I see hints that people are getting
motorola/nokia apps to run on their bberry. So I started to think there might be light at the end of the tunnel after all. At this point, I'm not going to complain if the frames look don't fit my browser.

>>

Is it true that the cbs sportsline mobile apps are not supported on any t-mobile
devices?

Is it true that the only way to get these apps is from 't-zones' ?

I'm a bit surprised that I am ready willing and able to buy multiple cbs
sportsline mobile apps, and I have a high end phone capable of running Java
apps, yet I am shut out?

Thanks for any feedback.

I'm trying to do the same thing with Nextel and 7100i. I found the 2005 cbs Blackberry site but not a 2006.

I have the CBS tracker working for my 7130e (sprint) As long as you have a team in a league of theirs, it is free to use.

Link is [url]http://sportsline.mforma.com/mlet/ffrim/go?action=league&num=1&from=5&0x=148[url]

We do have a league with them but I couldn't find a place to download the software. The link you sent tells me i can't access the application.

it got me to the website and i logged in and then it says, i don't have access to the application. don't you have to pay for it each month? and if so, where do you sign up for that?
Thanks

You will get that message if you are trying through a computer. You need to go to the site through your BB.

Try PocketDay Sports...

PocketDay Sports (http://www.crossriversystems.com/sports.htm)

Another vote for PocketDay Sports here. I've only used it with baseball so far but the updates come (with manual refresh) every 2 minutes. Putting the cursor over the little baseball icon for each game gives you a fast summary with outs, runners on base, and how the last hitter got on or out. Also lists the current pitcher. The summary only stays on for a couple of seconds but moving off the icon and back on again will bring it back up. The downside is that PD Sports is a subscription service. It's $3.95 per month (1 year) via PayPal or $40 for the full year in one shot.

The thing with CBS sportline if you have a league there is you can change your lineup and stuff.

I looked into the fantasy tracker for CBS. It looks like it was free last season, but this season they charge your phone bill $3.99/month. It is direct billed onto your carriers phone bill.

I wouldn't mind paying 4 bucks a month but I can't even find that it is supported on a blackberry this year.

I have it running on a Sprint 7130e this year. I paid nothing for this service.

Are you still having issues with the link i provided in an earlier post.

The link didn't work for me on my 7130.

I can get to the wap cbssportsline page but it is very basic and it doesn't have fantasy anywhere...

If you want only stats for specific players, download program at 4info.com and add all your players...live stat tracking, no sms

Also pocket express is nice too but doesn't list player's TD's...only yardage, etc

FYI...cingular has a NFL Fantasy Tracker on it's wap homepage. You can add up to 24 players to track....just another option.
