    Can't get FM radio to work, help plz!!!

    Have tried two different headphones, one bing low end and one being high end noise cancelling. I open the FM app and it says loading FM radio please wait, this is all it does! I open the notice bar and tap that icon it opens up and I can change stations but there is no sound.

    I have checked to make sure all volumes are up.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you need the specific headset to get the FM radio to work, not just any headset.

    I had the FM radio working with a set of standard earbuds and also plugged it in to my 2.1 stereo speaker system and it worked then too.

    Mine has worked with a few different headphones. I just plugged them in and started up the FM app. If you want it to play through the rear speaker, hit menu and choose that setting.

    I'm using a generic pair of Phillips Earbuds, and FM worked perfectly and scanned 14 stations on the first try from inside my house (where I get fairly horrible reception) in the Kansas City Area.
