I can stream content just fine from youtube you just need to upgrade to the 4.5 OS

Digicel blocks streaming. Its working fine on bmobile network, its been ever since 2004 or so. Jus buy a 100 credit and test it....
apn: "ppinternet" or "internet" (streaming)

I asked one of my co-worker who has a curve and he said he has not been able to stream anything

Well if u had blackberry OS 4.5 you would be able to stream thats all there is to it
Get OS 4.5!!!! I have it and i have been able to stream for months now BUT u will not be able to stream over digicel network its just too slow

That's true my brother was trying unsuccessfully to stream with his digicel SE K700 and Samsung G600 phones.Even with EDGE they are not still offering Streaming. While i can simply stream (audio) with my work horse SE J300
on the bmobile network.

i have curve 8310 with latest OS 18.104.22.168.

I have an 8320 curve....Ive just tried streaming from youtube just now and it didnt work ...but I can assure you it has worked before

Streaming works if you install OS 4.5
And really only if you have wifi enabled...otherwise you wont have the bandwidth for youtube. I do have a blackberry curve 8320 for sale with both wifi and 4.5 installed by the way. I have a post in the items for sale section.
I have been able to stream over GPRS but it takes FOREVER to load the first frame. If you have WIFI at home or you're at a hotspot, it works beautifully.
