Virtual Radio

This Internet radio app works quite well on my Motorola Rambler. Comments indicate it works on the Seek and Inuendo too. I don't know what other Boost phones it works on. I tried it on a Motorola i776 and it installs and starts but I couldn't get it to play anything. If you try it on a phone other than the Rambler and it works, please leave a comment so I can update this post.

Publisher's description: VirtualRadio connects to the Internet through your mobile phone operator's network and links to more than 1500 radio stations from all over the world... To optimize the user experience for regular Java phones, VirtualRadio Java version contains channels with a low bandwidth only (max. 32kbps). VirtualRadio Free runs on most common Java phones (but also on Symbian Smartphones)! As there are countless different Java phones in use, we are unable to tell exactly where VirtualRadio will work or not. Just try it out, it is free!

Keys: Softkeys don't work on the Rambler. Use arrow keys to navigate, OK to select, End Call key to exit

  1. Virtual radio is a nice stuff gets me listening to gospel songs.Thanks

  2. works very well on nokia e 63 thxs alot would you help us find pdf reader or converter to word for phones

    • You can find free lg840g 240x320 apps from http://looco.mywapblog.com/page/1.xhtml , where you must edit the manifest.mf file to remove the java keyboard (see youtube videos for lg840g keyboard removal).

    • Your link gives me "looco.mywapblog.com does not exists or has been deleted."

  3. I got the Virtual Radio app to download on my Incognito finally. I have it running in the background on Opera Mini 7.1 and posting a comment at the same time. Im going to try it with the Bluetooth later. I hope that it plays through the headset.

  4. Ciao
    works fine on new Nokia 515
    anyway I would like to listen a shoutcast radio and I don't know how to add the station
    (orany other program that allows me buffering an internet radio)

  5. I tried to download the VRadio app on my Incognito and keep getting a Data Error 907 Invalid Content File Extraction Error

    • Others say it works on the Incognito. I suspect the file either got corrupted as you were downloading it or there isn't enough free space on your phone. Try re downloading it and/or freeing up some space.

  6. Boostapps,
    I told you I would work this out! You might add the Nokia OVI store "BorderFunk Internet Radio App". Nokia S40 app that works fine on the LG840g. Takes a minute or so to buffer the channel, and then runs like a top. Keep in mind that you can add any internet radio channel by entering the playlist url. Here's the JAD. Just open it in Wordpad for the Jar url if needed.

    • The link takes me to a page that prompts me to log into my Nokia account. When I log in I get an HTTP 500 "Intrernal Server Error". When I search the Ovi Store for "'BorderFunk Internet Radio App" I get no results.

      What Nokia device did you tell the Ovi Store you are using? I think the one I have, the Asha 303 is incompatible with the app so it doesn't show up in my searches.

    • Dennis,
      Are you using chrome browser? Logged in? S40 Nokia? You can also get the app on my archive storage site, here:

      http://tinyurl.com/LG840G-LGT375-PhoneApps

      Take a look at my text file notes there in the same folder.... Shows you how to add radio stations...

    • Thanks for the link to your copy of the app. I'll give it a try latter.

      Incidentally, once I saw that the name of the app is BordFunk (not BordERFunk) I was able to find it using Ovi Store search.

    • The one of yours which plays only for 3 seconds (India) has me wondering if there might be a way to add more buffer time to yours. The site looco.mywapblog.com has some tools to extract the class file content. I'm not familiar with java, but the buffering might be in plain sight. Thanks for your site and support.

    • Thanks, BordFunk works pretty well on several phone I tried it on.

      But I'm having trouble adding a station by modifying dradio_wissen.s. I put urls to mp3 and m3u streams in URL0 and URL1 and a Ogg vorbis stream URL in URL2 but the app still plays DRadio Wissen,

      Can you share an example of a modified dradio_wissen.s that works?

      Thanks

  7. Works well on sanyo innuendo

  8. LG840G buffering problems (stops after 5 seconds).

  9. It didn't work on my Nokia X2.

  10. works on the innuendo

  11. Virtual Radio is working in Motorola Rokr E6....
    Thank you
