    For those of you who are using the SiriusXM app have you had issues with the stream stopping? I don't think it's an issue with the wifi or 3G connection because I don't lose all data but the stream will stop at least twice every minute then will start again on it's own a few seconds later. I never had this issue with my iPhone so I'm wondering if its an issue with the app itself for the phone. Pandora works great but for some reason SiriusXM doesn't.

    I haven't noticed this problem. It has cut out occasionally, but usually when this happens I check my signal strength and I've lost 3G for a couple seconds and it will reconnect.

    Do you know of another app in the marketplace that allows you to stream Sirius? The iPhone has a few apps that do this but from what I've seen the ones I used aren't available for Android.

    It's most likely that you're losing your data connection for a moment

    If you have Juicedefender installed that might do it. It turns off your 3g with the screen off but leaves it on if it detects you're streaming. The problem I have is when I use Pandora with it is I hit play sleep the phone the song ends and it wont go to the next. Why? It's actually downloading the whole song then not using the 3g so Juicedefender doesn't see streaming anymore so ti turns off 3g, song ends pandora can't find the internet. I'm guessing Sirius streams constantly but that's just my .02 :)

    I'll install that and give it a try. Now it seems to be working ok on 3G but not wifi. Oh well as long as it keeps working on 3G I'm good with that.
