Default How To: "Streaming" Audio on your BlackBerry (or any phone)

Please Login to Remove!

www.mymbn.com/swing/ << go to that on your blackberry.

Note: This is NOT a music playing application, it is a directory of streaming music stations that are accessed by a voice call. You can search the directory and select your station; then your cellphone will MAKE A REGULAR CALL (Yes, this means you do use voice minutes) and you will hear the audio stream live.

It's not the most pratical way of doing things, but it does work. I guess it's most usefull at night or weekends when you (most likely) have unlimited minutes anyway. - I got myself an FM transmitter and adapter for the smaller audio plug; it's nice to have something else to listen to in the car on the weekends; even if it's low quality. Still good for news and talk though.

Once again: Listening to a stream will use voice minutes.

When I try to go into one it says "Your request cannot be processed at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please select OK to try again or contact the System Administrator at [email address]"

Does everyone else get this?

EDIT: ok got it working, I know this uses my minutes, but does it charge me for being a long distance call? it's the weekend and I was hoping to use it but scared because they might charge me for a long distance. I'm with T-Mobile.

I received the same error message. How did you correct this?

T-Mobile as far as I know gives free long distance with all their plans. Though if you want to be completely sure, either login to the website and check or call them up. - The error message comes up once in a while, I think it's mainly if the servers are full.

incorrect - sort of - depending on plan - minutes used go against your plan reagrdless of whether it's a local or long distance call -and, as you stated - the website or 611 can clear it up..
