    Does the S3 have a built in FM radio? I read somewhere that the S3 has a radio tuner to listen to local stations without using data.

    Mine on AT&T in the US doesn't have FM radio. As funkylogik says, just the international units do.

    If that is true it doesn't eat any of your data then that's a really useful app. Sometime i find it better to listen to the radio than music.
    But can it be confirmed it doesn't eat or data?

    the Fm Radio works the same as any cheap radio, its not just an app though, the phone will have to have the hardware in it

    the FM radio, along with the Wolfson Audio chip were removed from the US version when they decided to use the qualcomm chip. This allows the use of qualcomms LTE radio and WCD9310 audio chip.

    The give and take of high speed data...
