Thanks for the info dkh and ciprian.
I purchased the app because I can not get a radio signal for my new home theater setup in my basement and can not place an external sirius receiver which is an accessory to my Onkyo receiver near a window. So I can stream Sirius as well as AOL radio with my laptop thru an HDMI cable to the receiver. For $2.99 what a bonus to have Sirius on my Blackberry!
Great timing finding this thread! I decided to purchase the app yesterday. However, I had some problems getting info as to whether the app would work on my 9650. Sirius punted and told me to check with Verizon Wireless. I spoke w/ Verizon's tech support. The first guy said it would work even though the 9650 wasn't listed on the dropdown menu on Sirius' website. However,while I was getting a username and password we got disconnected. I called back and I spoke with someone else at Verizon tech support who said I couldn't do it because the 9650 wasn't supported with the app and I had been misinformed. Hesaid it might be added in the fututre.
I was upset because I had just purchased the app and asked for a Verizon supervisor. The supervisor apologized for the misinformation provided by the first agent and reiterated that the app wouldn't work on my Blackberry.
While speaking to her, I had a brainstorm and went on the forum and saw this thread!
Thank you, thank you.
Years ago when I had XM, I had to purchase a seperate radio to receive XM on the go and ahd to pay the full discounted price for a 2nd radio. When the radio broke, I didn't replace it. What a convenience to have Sirius/XM on my blackberry!
[I]Although the application worked when I first downloaded it yesterday afternoon, when I tried to logon again last night many times, it kept telling me that my logon information was incorrect.
I tried again this morning and it didn't work. I thought that maybe Verizon was right and that maybe the 9650 wasn't supported yet. I called Sirius this afternoon and a tech told me there was a problem with the service temorarily and that it didn't matter whether I had an IPhone, Blackberry, Droid, etc, none were working because of a temporary service problem that would be fixed in a day or so. It is not a problem with the app on the Blackberry Bold 9650[. On my own, I removed the app and reinstalled it and it worked fine. However, I tired to open the app a minute ago and I got an error message "temporarily unavailable."
Anyone else having this problem?
Another question for everyone-what is the difference if you logoff versus exit the application?/I]
