    Before i had the Iphone, i had a BB pearl. I used to get XM on it by using ORB, uXM or uSirius. Has anyone tried using ORB yet to get It working? Here the instructions to get it to work on a BB http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...check-out.html

    I think it should work on the Iphone but i havent tried it yet.

    I don't know. You could post a question about that in that forum link I posted. The developers of the app read and respond to questions there.

    As I posted in the other section, Sirius works fine on the iPhone via uSirius and Orb. There are instructions on the uSirius web site. Orb for the iPhone isn't free, however. If you're looking for a free solution, good luck.

    Ya it works fine through Orb, though i stopped using it cause i was sick of keeping my computer on just to use it, so im like w/e. Hopefully that XM app comes out soon, wanna hear O&A all the time!

    I am getting an iPhone this coming weekend (ATT is dropping the $36 activation fee for new accounts Jan 22-25 for those interested) and hoping for an actual Sirius app via iTunes myself. Not sure if Sirius/XM will approve it though???

    I have been using an app from geekstoolbox on my Motorla Q for 2 years now. It works nicely!

    Thanks for that uSirius link for the time being...

    There is a free ORB app http://appshopper.com/entertainment/orblive-free
    There is also a uXM for XM users, this is just a solution to getting XM/Sirius on the iphone for the time being.

    Why in the hell would you pay for satellite radio on the iPhone when there are plenty of free options available? Or why not, ya know, just listen to your own music collection?

    Or if you already have XM/Sirius, this will be nice to have.

    Reverse those two, and I'm thinking the same thing as you.

    Hit the nail on the head. Here in Chicago, O&A aren't on anymore and I only have 1 XM unit, so it will be nice to have the option to listen to them anywhere with a XM app.

    It's been a while since I've had XM but I laughed my butt off when they would do the Lucky Strike bits.

    Does anyone know if Sirius/XM plan on charging the $4.99 additional receiver fee to use the iphone app or if there will be a one time fee for the app? Also, is all the content available or is it like the internet feed where it's only music and a few select channels?

    Haha, but you can listen to the CBS side of the show on the Aol radio app, I listen to that app as I get ready in the morning and then I just get in my car and it continues.

    The developer already posted a thread here.

    To those suggesting Orb... when did Orb put out a Mac server, and where did they hide it? I only see XP server on orb.com. The only always-on "computer" I have myself is an Apple TV, so Orb/uXM probably isn't for me anyway, unless they've hidden a Tiger server somewhere.
