    My local Rec Center has TV's with low powered FM transmitters to allow people to listen to which channel they chose while working out. My question is does a list exist of phones with FM receivers in them?
    Thanks in advance!

    Why wouldn't it?

    Anyways, with mobile apps and iheartradio and the like, you can already get most stations online.
    The only thing we're missing is live sports broadcasts, since they get blacked most of the time.

    I don't expect many manufacturers to continue to make smartphones with FM radios as so much is available online. You rec center would be better served by providing wifi to the guests.

    FM Radio is still more accessible then then unlimited data plan and radio recivers won't disapper as this kind of distribution is ultimate solution for multicast trasmission without any bandwidth issues. What will most likely kill FM radio is digital radio like DAB or eventually radio over DVB-T (or ATSC in US?, but m not sure if it formally supporting radio), thru it seems to develop slowly (most likely because msot countries are busy with Digital TV migration), but i assume it will replace FM reciver once it will catch up.
