Re: Can I get radio on it?

GPRS radio is one of the bandwidths with which the Blackberry received and sends your signal, for data etc.... not listening to the latest hits.


If you want a good application for radio, try iHeartRadio

For music, Pandora and Slacker radio are nice. Check AppWorld for all three.
