BlackBerry Storm only Verizon offered 'Berry with VCast Song ID?
Ever hear a song, loved the tune, and wanted to download it on your cellphone, but you didn't know the title? If you are a BlackBerry Storm user on Verizon, you can not only name that tune and artist, but also add it to your phone's play list. We just heard from a tipster that for the last week, the VCast Song ID app has been added to the many features available on the BlackBerry Storm. According to our source, no other BlackBerry in Verizon's stable has had this app made available to it and it must be downloaded to the handset.

The VCast Song ID can identify more than 4 million tunes and will give the listener the name of the song, the artist and the album that the song appears on. After passing on that information, the listener is given the option of purchasing the title from Verizon.

Thanks to our Tipster!

A Verizon rep has confirmed to us that the VCast Song ID is now available on the BlackBerry Storm with just a download.

Well probably they cant figure out how to use it properly, and want a toy not a well thought out device.

I have downloaded VCast Song ID and I can't get it to work. It will "listen" to a song all day if I'd let it and never, ever ID it. Do I have to have VCast or Rhapsody to use ID? Any ideas???

Who cares... This phone sucks. I would rather take a regular phone like the LG Env instead of the plagued Blackberry Storm

plagued? it works better than any other smart phone out there....your bad breathe plagues your judgement.

You would not be talking about the Reviews from would you... The site that is Overly Obssesed with the Iphone and gave it a much better review even though more people in this world prefer the Storm to any Iphone every produced... Just because the people on this website who work for this website dont like it does not mean everyone else dosen't. Even though its the #3 sold phone, 2nd to Iphone (only cause it came out first, in my opinion) and VZW's most popular PDA (next to the #1 Curve, yet another Blackberry not Iphone)!

What 3rd party apps get blocked by VZW? They're known to block ports but I haven't had any problems with any apps for the Storm and VZW. Shazam hasn't developed their app for the Storm yet, which is why it isn't available, not because VZW has blocked it.
