HIGHLY recommend ScoreMobile for those who don't want to pay for the MLB At-Bat 2011 app.

Let's Go METS!!!!!! Whooooo Baseball is here. I've been waiting all cold winter for it. Great review of a few apps to look into.

Is anyone else having trouble with at bat 11. I used the 2010 edition all last season and 2011 worked fine all spring training for me. Last night I downloaded the update and now I can't get live audio anymore. It cycles between logging in and retrieving stream for a while and then says network error. I have restarted the app several times and done a few battery pulls. My tigers are about to start their opening day game and I can't get the stream!

I finally got it connected after connecting to wifi. I don't know why 3G wasn't working because I used it all last season and all spring training this year. I hope this isn't an issue all year because usually I am on the road when I use this app. Luckily I'm in the office all day today.

Thanks for the advice. I'll be sure to connect to WiFi till the problem is solved.

Same thing for me. Try getting the audio once first pitch has been thrown. That's all I can think of...

Just an update. It is working normally over 3G now. I'm guessing it was just some kind of glitch because to many people were trying to connect at once or something.

Damn that Bold 9000 is a nice looking phone. Sooo looking forward to Bold Touch.

why do you have the MiLB (Minor League Baseball) logo over the Opening Day? Couldn't find the MLB on?

I like how, even with all the devices that came out after it, the ol'8900 still looks ever so great, and rly deserves to be displayed on most of these articles' photos :)

Why is the Yankees shortcut all of a sudden not working for the 9650? I had it ALL last season.
