Cluelss- how can I listen to talk radio w phone?

My new office is in the basement of a 3 story building and i can't get any radio stations. We ar enot allowed to use the companies internet for this purpose, and they do monitor internet usage. I have a new verizon modem (UM175 USB Modem). I get excellent cell phone service so i thought there must be a way to use a phone or some device with this modem to get talk radio if not internet access.

it's time to renew my "renew every two". Is there a way to use any Verizon phone for the internet, andspecifically talk radio? Do i need the modem? 9i don't want to haul my laptop into work.) if i can accomplish this with a Verizon phone, what plan do i need/

Am i better off buying a basic small pc (some are about the same money)?
Thanks for any suggestions,
cskipper

Re: Cluelss- how can I listen to talk radio w phone?

Do i need the separate modem? i really want to listen to talk radio asd don't want to use minutes. Would unlimited minutes and no modem be less expensive? Either way, do I need the media and voice plan and not just the voice plan?

Re: Cluelss- how can I listen to talk radio w phone?

Streaming radio works fine on an HTC touch... but you want an unlimited data plan, like the Sprint everything plan, otherwise you'll be in debtor's prison in no time! GS player - a FREE mp3 player - works great with shoutcast stations.

Like the previous poster said, you also want a charger!

Good luck!

Re: Cluelss- how can I listen to talk radio w phone?

And you don't need a modem. On your phone you can surf out to the web (just like on your pc) and play streaming radio stations.

There are many audio players out there that are good for this (e.g., Pocket Tunes, etc.). In fact Pocket Tunes has an imbedded radio player so that you don't even have to mess with websites, etc.

late,
Coz
