    You should have done some research. There is no Flash player for any iPhone and right now there is not likely to ever be one.

    That makes even less sense. Microsoft don't make the iPhone OS: Apple do. Microsoft don't make Flash: Adobe do. So why would they have anything to do with Flash on the iPhone? Anyway the developer agreement prohibits any third party runtime like Flash or Java so it's not happening.

    Here's my dilemma. There are a couple sites I frequent that you are able to play and listen to their audio teachings direct from the site.

    Via the iPhone I'm not able to play them. Where the audio is on the site there is a blue box with a ? mark inside.

    Is this dilemma related to not having flash?

    If so is there an app that I can install so that I'll be able to listen to the audios direct from the site?

    Yes the problems you are facing are because of a lack of flash. There are not really any alternatives, apart from contacting the websites and asking them to stop using flash.

    I had the same problem installing the flash player on the iPhone. I called Microsoft and they said it's a known issue and to get the player installed you simply have to pee on the iPhone after clicking install. I just tried it and IT WORKS!!!

    You need to go to the Blackberry site and download and install the new "Flashtml5".

    Or you can wait and see...

    lol

    do you flash guys Adobe makes flash I Microsoft does look for Adobe to sue Microsoft. Steve Jobs has stated he has no intent to allow flash. Adobe has a law suit filed against Apple now to get flash. if Flash is your big issue you better go Droid or just about anything else. No flash player in the Iphone future right now. ;) ts if your trolling hats off to you. if you really bought a Iphone with out this I hope you are not into product research. ;)

    Apple claims that Flash is a buggy and resource-hogging closed system that is at the mercy of Adobe for updates. Given the history of Flash for the Mac, it's hard to argue with this analysis. Others, however, theorize that Apple's real interest lies in trying to establish and protect their own standards and platform—imagine what would happen to all those ad-supported and cheap games in the App Store if you could just go to addictinggames.com on your iPhone.

    As with anything in life, it's probably a bit of each, and we can debate how much of each until the cows come home, but the upshot is that we won't be seeing Flash on the iPhone anytime soon.

    Yeah, I'm not going to argue with them on that point ;) But after seeing some of the crap on the App Store, it's hard to believe that's their ONLY motivation..

    HOWTO: Flash on an iPhone/iPad

    You can't install a Flash player directly on your iPhone, but you can still view Flash web content on your iPhone or iPad remotely using a VNC or RDP app, plus a PC, Mac or VM with a public IP address.

    Even if you don't even have a public IP address or a PC, you can still rent one in the clouds for 12 cents per hour:

    Let the fans spin up in Amazon's server farm instead of heating up your iPhone (and killing the battery life).
