    Of course. Do you not have the FM Radio app, or NextRadio?

    As usual this feature appears to be missing from the Verizon model.

    NextRadio is an FM Radio app.

    So I am a bit confused.

    1) The NextRadio app is the stock app that every other phone has besides the Verizon version of the M8?
    2) And the FM radio technology is IN the Verizon M8, it's just that Verizon banned the NextRadio app on the Google Play Store for Verizon customers?
    3) And if I could somehow get an apk file of the NextRadio app, it would work normally on the Verison M8 as it would with the (let's say) Sprint M8?

    No. Only the Sprint version uses NextRadio. The other variants use the stock (HTC) FM Radio app.

    I assume the FM Radio hardware is in the device. Try installing an app like Spirit FM Radio and see if it works.

    Understandable.

    I'd be nice if there was some way to get the stock HTC FM Radio app on my phone. I'm all about consistency, and when VZN doesn't include something every other cellular service provides I get a bit angry.

    Sure, you can try installing it. I've seen it around. A search should yield results.

    I wasn't sure if stock applications could be downloaded as an apk file...thought that only applied to Play Store apps.

    I'll see what I can find.

    Thank you. I am on Verizon and rooted with Weaksauce, and the FM Radio apk installed and the app works perfectly.

    I read that you don't need root to install these apks, but you need to go to Settings >Security, and select Unknown Sources

    Sweet, thanks for these man!

    This is going to sound stupid, but does the radio only play through the headphones, since they need to be plugged in to act as the antenna? Or can the sound be played out of the speakers while the headphones are in?

    And I'm not sure...the HTC FM Radio is looking a little sleeker...

    Next Radio allows you to play thru headphones or speakers but either way the headphones have to be plugged in because it is the antenna
