I want to be able to listen to internet radio via my BB.... Can you and what will the phone need?

I saw a link to RadioBee and was curious if this would work if I downloaded this?

If this will work is this the best choice?

According to Feedback in RadioBee's forums, Pearl users are saying it does work. :: View topic - Blackberry 8100 Pearl

Quality may be an issue considering the Pearl can only handle data via the Edge network which is slow for streaming media. And because it is data, you're pretty much required to have an unlimited data plan.

If you plan on using RadioBee, you'll have to find compatible radio stations streaming in mp3 format.

Hope that helps.

Right, with any kind of streaming audio via the internet there will be quality issues due to the speed of the data connection.

Welcome to the forums!
