Is there no way to listen to Sirius streaming on the Blackberry 8900?

I don't think there is an app for it (yet). One problem would be bandwidth. EDGE doesn't give you the throughput you need to get decent sound quality.

Default EDE is one thing

I'd be happy to use it with my wifi at home and work.

I assume that you have searched for an app? Did you look in App World? Our Aftermarket Section?

There are several references using Google nut most are 5 to 7 years old and not with your device.

yeah i took a look. like you say, most were a few years old and not for my device. The Sirius home page talks about an app for the iPhone and iTouch. Hopefully it won't be that long until we get one too.

WHAT THE F***! I've tried Orbcast, black magic, and sacrifices and never could figure out how to get Howard on my 8900. Thank you a million times for sharing that! AMAZING!
