    For those of you that want sirius to stream on your Curve.

    1) Make sure you have a sirius online acct. You get one free with your subscription.
    2) D/L and install ORB (www(dot)orb(dot)com)
    2a) Create an ORB acct.
    3) D/L and install uSirius (www(dot)millardsoftware(dot)com/usirius)
    4) Start both.
    5) go to Internet Radio inside Orb. Create a CUSTOM CHANNEL.
    6) to get the url you need for your "path" setting in Orb, select that channel in uSirius and copy it.
    7) Leave both running on your computer. p.s. you need broadband
    8) go to your Curve browser - mycast(dot)orb(dot)com - sign in and go to your Audio/Internet Radio listings..

    Viola!! I have Howard 101 streaming as we speak.

    Wow. Excellent post and information.

    Out of curiosity, what kind of battery life are you experiencing with Sirius steaming? More specifically, how long can you keep Howard running?

    Very nice! Now I can get the Grateful Dead channel on my Blackberry! I knew there was a reason I got this thing!

    Also cool that I can use this method to stream my own internet radio station. (No I'm not going to give a link, that would just be shameless spamming!)

    It does work, I set this up a few days ago. (I live in a weak signal area so if I'm around home it doesn't stay connected) give it a shot, it will probably work great for other users.

    You can also access all ur media saved on ur desktop- pics, music, etc (that's just orb, you don't have to do anything special)

    Can I use a bluetooth headset to listen to this as well? Sorry for the noob question, but I've honestly never used the BT or any other headset on my Curve and I'm honestly not sure if it's only for phone calls or what.

    I would think you could use a BT. If you can listen to music, it will work since the stream comes thru the media player.

    personally that xm app is garbage... I had high hopes but it is nowhere near worth the cost. I hope Siri comes out with something better at some point!

    How about a bababooey to FireCAPTAIN?

    Hehehe


    p.s. Let's Go Red Wings!

    I guess you'll have to watch some Stars games this year to catch Avery's antics.

    I have a Verizon Pearl I have Orb and uXm running on my computer and I ran all the different format but never got one to work. Not sure why but since I did the upgrade .97 I can't reformat videos to 3gp or play them. Orb works fine on computer and can stream on computer. Any suggestions?

    Instead of downloading usirius, download uxm. It does the exact same thing.
