Please Login to Remove!

almost every phone sold now in italy has a radio in it, you just plug in the ear phones that use as an antenna receiver and you got a radio. how is it that BB have no radio? so technologically advanced, and no basic function as a radio?
does anybody know if there is a program that allows ou to listen to radio?
thank you

No program will let you listen to normal FM radio as the required hardware is not built into the phone. There is an Internet Radio program that streams across the internet, it is called FlyCast and works well. If you use a streaming radio program watch your data usage.
