    Default Anyone use the FM radio?

    Hadn't used it before tonight. I thought that I would give it a try. Its really nice. Sound comes through clear with a lot of bass. Anyone else try it?

    I used to have an EVO and the fm radio on it was pretty bad. This one is really good. Im happy that I will be able to put it to good use.

    I used to until I found Tune In Radio on the market. It is so much better in my opinion. It has all the same local channels in my area & I can listen to stations from anywhere else I want too. There is about a 30 second delay, but unless you are watching a game, it doesn't matter.

    I enjoy using the FM radio. I like how it identifies each station, you can save stations, etc. I just wish there was an AM radio so I could at listen to ESPN radio or something. Other than that, no complaints; just make sure you have a pair of headphones!

    +1 for tunein radio. its fantastic. has a perfect espn radio stream too. i like the stock fm radio...wish it had am, and wish u didnt need headphones or speakers to use it. silly.

    The headphone cable acts as the antenna for the FM radio. If you are having poor reception make sure the cord is not wound up in your pocket.

    I don't like that you have to use wired headphones to get it to work. I use TuneIn radio from the market and like it a lot.

    Download iheartradio app. You can get a lot of AM channels. A few of them are ESPN.

    FM radio works good for me. I like that you can use it with the speaker as long as the headphones are still plugged in.
