Calling for some serious clone help! Blackberry VS Treo
« on: February 25, 2008, 10:14:01 pm »
So I switched to a Blackberry Pearl because I got tired of the bulky Treo 720.  While I like the Pearl, turns out I can't get the stream from Jim Rome's show from premier networks.  I legitimately pay for the service and can't get it to work on the pearl.  Meanwhile, I was able to listen to Rome live without a glitch.  I can't really return the Pearl so does anyone know of a way I can listen to Rome on a Pearl? 

Seriously, I bought the data plan and pay for the broadcast just for Romey-rome because of no AM reception at work and an inpenetrable firewall.  I'm no Marty but I am a serious clone!

Any help is appreciated.

Maybe you should jump into a few golden blocks and gather the coins that come out and head on down to your wireless provider to buy an Iphone.

speaking of blackberry...

How do you upgrade the software on the phone?  I think my phone still runs like version 4.1 or something like that.

I can help you. What phone do you have? Do you have desktop manager and if so what version? v4.5 should be released in the next few weeks.  :banana

I have verizon but it is not 4.2.1.174.  I have to go pull it but I know it is still on 4.1 something like that.  How do I get the phone to upgrade?
