    FM Radio

    They keep advertising that the Droid X has an FM radio - but I'll be damned if I can find it on my phone. Is it an app that I must download? If so, what is it? I want to listen to live local FM stations. Instructions for a novice would be appreciated.

    There are several applications that will let you listen to the radio. The one I use is "I heart radio" but if you look on the market you will find many more. By the way there free.

    FM Radio

    Couldn't find I heart radio in market - all I can find are streaming recorded - I want to listen to live stations.

    Yes, the Droid X has an FM receiver and came with the necessary APP. All you have to do is look in the F area in your APP launcher drawer.

    You must have a wired headset plugged in (uses it as an antenna) to be able to get the APP to launch when pressed.

    Purchased X 2nd hand when it was 2 months old (everyone's going to Iphone) - he apparently removed the apps he didn't use - FM must have been one he removed.

    I think there are people around this forum that know links to the OTA sbf file. That would get you back to stock setup.

    If you want a streaming APP for Radio purposes, the best there is in the market is an APP called Tunein Radio by Radio Time. However one thing you need to understand is that streaming APP's do occasionally need to buffer data and will stop to do that.

    Link for Tunein Radio is below:

    IheartRadio is a clear channel system. It does not really have much to offer compared to the over 40000 stations in Tunein Radio. If you want LOCAL stations, Tunein is the best way to get them.

    As I said there's ALOT of them out there. I heart is just the one I use. Look around and you'll find something that suits your needs.
