it works perfect for me. one of the benefits of 3G.
download and install Orb.
download and install uSirius.
add an Audio Channel via Orb from the uSirius app. works great.
i usually get about 700Kbs throughput which is more than enough for the 128bit stream that uSirius sends out. im loving it.

Where do you get Orb for the Bold at? Is it an application that downloads on the BlackBerry or do you just access your media from their website?

just log onto your mycast.orb.com account via the Bolds browser. the website knows that you are accessing it from a mobile device and you get a stripped down version of the normal web site.

I have the same question.

I think you click on "add custom channel" and then cut and paste the URL from usirius but I cannot get this working yet

A step by step how to would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Can you pause and restart?
