    Galaxy S3 FM Radio update

    I just had a chat with Samsung support rep (Rick K) about FM Radio availablity on NA models.

    The answer I got was that the availablity of the FM Radio is a decision made by the service provider, and to check with the service provider(s) about availability.

    He was not able to provide names of service providers that may have FM Radio,
    nor was he able to provide the model variant suffixes of the models that ship with the FM radio hardware installed.

    So..... Please post your results of Canadian [/USA] service providers whether FM Radio present or not.

    I suspect that the big Canadian providers Bell/Robers/Telus will not have the FM radio since this competes with their streaming music subscriptions.

    Release date dissapointment(s).
    Telus (i747) S3: No Radio hw app
    Wind (T999) S3: No Radio hw app
    Bell (i747) S3: No Radio hw app

    International (i9300) S3: HW radio app, but quad vs dual core, better gpu, 1G vs 2G ram, much much better firmware support..

    Is it just the app that is missing or is the HW also missing the capability? If its an app, I imagine it will be available through the wonderful people at XDA.

    I downloaded the 'Sirint FM Unlocked Light' and it didn't seem to work on my rooted S3 16gb phone. It may take some settings changes but I didn't have a clue in the settings what to chance.

    I also tried/supported Spirit Fm lite without success yet.
    This was 15-jun version eith debug bcm4334 enabled.
    This will be the app that most likely to support fm

    All I know at this time is both i747 & i9100
    Use bcm4334 for wifi bt not soc functions

    Also aware cm9 HAD initial problems getting i9100 fm going

    Yeah The Radio App for Sansung S3 can only be launched using the 4x1 Radio widget which you can find by selecting apps/widgets. Under Settings/App Manager/All the Radio App is shown but can only be run from the widget. Don't know why Samsung chooses this strange approach!
