An FM tuner in a BlackBerry? I doubt any of us will ever see this in our lifetimes.

I agree with penguin.
Unless there becomes a demand for it, I doubt we will see it. I know s.e. has em because of the whole walkman phone and nokia had a few phones with it, but that is really the scale I have seen fm tuners on a cell phone.

Your best bet may be to go on ebay and get a little fm tuner to throw in your gym bag.

I have ZERO interest in an AM or FM radio on any of my BlackBerrys. All it will do is eat battery juice and further complicate the OS. Thanks, but I pass.

You could try moodio.fm and bookmark the moodio page in your BB browser. You can add stations to moodio if the one you want's not there. You just have to get the URL of the audio stream to add it.

Get with the times haha. I had a Nokia with an FM tuner in it too. But regular radio kinda sucks these days. Besides no real point in packing the device with another radio/antennae.

Try the I Heart Radio app. I can get most of my local stations streaming to it.

I'll stick with my MP3's. My song selection is usually better than a radio stations anyhow, plus no commercials

Yeah, but that is not going to pick up a little FM transmitter in the OP's gym! I guess the best solution it to pickup a walkman and look old-school to listen to your gym's TVs.
