Default FM Radio on my BB

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a BB as all my associates use them but I really miss my old Nokia! One thing is I use the radio on my Nokia at sports events. IS THERE A WAY TO INSTALL AN FM RECEIVER? I ask as I have a note somewhere in my applications mentioning Radio.

No, there is no way to do this. The BlackBerry does not have the required hardware.

Welcome to the site.
Technology is not there yet. Are you aware of IHeartRadio?

check out Nobex radio companion. It may fill your needs. It has an extensive list of stations it will stream to your BB.

Also check out yourmuze.fm No app required, you can stream music via your browser. You have to create an account.

Welcome | Yourmuze.FM

If the station you want is not listed there, you can add it - if you can find the exact URL of the audio stream from the site.

Not outside the US and Canada though, which is where the OP is located. ;)

Default Thanks to everyone

Well I guess I'll just have to carry my old Nokia around for photos and radio! It's been dropped more times than a French infantryman's rifle but still works with the help of sellotape and an elastic band. My problem is, as I am retired and travel for 9 months a year I use PAYG SIM cards from each country I flit between so I don't use my BB for internet. about time someone like vodafone did a proper International SIM card without rip off charges for incoming calls and a 1p per mb charge for data. I bet I could sell 50 on every camp site in Europe for starters!
