    Does anyone know if the FM chips will function or is it all still carrier related?

    I have Verizon, and I've never had a phone with an FM tuner. Must be carrier specific.

    Verizon shuts it off on all of their phones.

    I've been with Verizon for almost a decade, and they have disabled it in every phone I've ever had.

    you need two things to get fm radio. an app like Next Radio and wired headphones or earbuds. The radio uses the wires in the headphones as the antenna and the app accesses the fm tunner.
    Works great on my Verizon S8

    Just install any fm app. You will know on next radio because it instructs you to plug in headphones if it has an fm radio instead of just letting you pick a station if you are streaming from the web

    From what I've heard before, if you have wifi AND a cell connection, apps use the wifi for radio. To truly tell if your using FM, turn off wifi. If it works, the FM chip is activated. Is that correct?

    I just tried it with airplane mode on and it didn't work. I tried it with just wifi off and it does work. It uses the cell connection for data to display station info, but it does work without wifi on.

    Thanks for this info!! I was worried. Among other uses I prefer walking into football games with just my phone and corded headphones so I can listen to the local broadcast team without the delay or hassle of streaming. Very much appreciate knowing this works on Note 8. I've used it with NextRadio on my Verizon S7E and now look forward to the same with my Note 8.

    You're welcome and that does sound like a great way to use the FM tuner.

    My Verizon OG Droid had it. My Thunderbolt may have but that was the last.

    Cool Is the signal wimpy like the Note 7 was? The Note 4, S7 and 8 Plus all are significantly better with signal than the Note 7 was.

    I didn't get the Note 7, but the signal is good it picks up all the main stations and I'm in a rural area.
