    Hey I was wondering if the phone has a built in FM tuner app or do I have to get one from the app store?

    As far as I know there isn't a built in FM radio but you can check out tunein radio app from the app store. It is free and has just about every FM and am radio station from around the world.

    Gotta get one from the app store, and hope it works. Let us know if you have any luck.

    iFixit's tear down showed that this phone has this ...

    Broadcom.com - BCM4330 - 802.11a/b/g/n MAC/Baseband/Radio with Integrated Bluetooth 4.0+HS and FM Transceiver

    The FM radio is in there, it's just going unused for now.

    I've been trying to figure this out, too. Just got phone yesterday and everything I've seen on web indicates there should be an "fm app" preinstalled, but there's not. And nothing in the market works. This phone is supposed to be able to act as an fm radio with a headset as the antenna, but most apps are for internet radio streaming and not for use as a tuner to access local stations. The one I tried didn't work, and the rest specifically say they don't work with this phone.
    Ugh!
    I called Sprint and the rep said he had no info on any fm radio capabilities.
    I'm having a lot of issues with this supposed superphone.
