    Is anyone else having an issue with streaming audio cutting out with incoming/outgoing texts? For instance, ill be listening to MLB at bat, and literally every time a text comes though it cuts out a couple seconds later, same for outgoing. This happens whether the alerts volume is on or not. And it happens with all streaming audio from what i've experienced.

    Bad software. What you are noticing is the switch from 3G to 2G in simple terms. The data connection/3G (MLB at Bat) gets cut out to allow the radio on the phone to receive the SMS/2G. The phone actually changes from a 3G connection to a 2G connection for a quick bit to receive the text which is prioritized, just like a call would be.
    Good software would have a proper buffer set up so that while this signal change occurs, the streaming program would have at least a few seconds of data buffered and ready to cover that signal change, so that it wouldn't stop when this signal change happens.
    It is either an issue with the MLB stream/program, or the software on the phone itself (maybe even adjustable in settings for the app.) So sadly, its not really anything you can "fix."
