I do as well using Tuner Internet Radio, Flycast as well as FStream. The last two are free, the first costs $5.

I'd give you the forum link but im typing this on my iphone and like everyone knows, you can't copy and paste.
But do a quick forum search and you'll find the thread.

Alas, I listen all the time on my iPhone, especially whilst in the car or at work. Tuner is my choice in players as I can only really get GPRS out here instead of 3g. Fstream doesn't like streaming through a GPRS network.

I'm listening on my iPhone right now as well, and It's a tossup for me: FStream is okay, but still needs work. It doesn't really stream well without using 3G or WiFi, and sometimes using it while charging the phone sucks more power out of the battery than the charge can replenish.

Internet Radiobox, on the other hand, shows some promise. It is also free for the iPhone (and maybe for BB), and that seems to work very well.

Well, when playing songs at home through Shoutcast, I've noticed the delay can be anywhere up to 20seconds. I'd imagine the iPhone would be much the same as listening through an ordinary internet connection (with maybe a few seconds more for buffering time - So lets guess 30 seconds.)

I don't have an iPhone to try it out, but, y'know...If anyone has a spare one....   :lol:
