I don't think XM has a Bold version of the app ready. Maybe when all the new stuff with Sirius blows over.

But I stopped wanting since I found flycast.

Here's the deal: even though the XM icon is on the Bold, and you can access the preview and even subscribe to it, it is all messed up (constant dropping, speeding up, slowing down, error messages) because XM does not, as of now, support the Bold.

Per XM Radio tech support, ATT is putting the icon on, even though it isn't supported yet.

I called AT&T to complain, and they refunded my subscription and told me they would bring it to the attention of the "highers-up".

I think it stinks that the customer service reps at AT&T (not to mention the customers themselves) are misled into believing these phones are XM ready.

Does anybody know how to remove the XM application from the Bold? It's probably a service book, but it isn't one that's named in any directly recognizable way.

(I have FlyCast and Nobex Radio Companion - when I tried the XM app on my old Pearl, I didn't find the music I like among their offerings).

Put those tiny stereo speakers to WORK!

Still the best sounding cellphone speakers EVER- including the 3G iPhone (I have one.. to hand down to my Son).
