    FM Radio

    The manual says there is an FM radio app that requires the a headset to be plugged in to act as an antenna. That implies that the Note II includes a radio chip. I just got a Note II. No FM radio app.

    My question is, does the GN2 have an FM chip or not?

    That all depends on which Galaxy Note 2 you have.

    If you have the international version of the Galaxy Note 2, it has a functioning FM radio. If you have a carrier-branded version of the Note 2 from a carrier in the U.S. (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile), it does not have a functioning FM radio. The hardware might be there in the domestic versions of the phone, but it's not functional.

    As for the manual stating that it does have one, you must be looking at a manual for the international version. The manual for the Verizon version, which can be found here, makes no mention of a FM radio.
    Current lineup: Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S, Note 10.1 (2014)

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. That's disappointing news. That means that listening to an FM broadcast will require data--probably not much, but data nonetheless. I have also found that the chief alternative does not carry my favorite stations. The GN2 is an awesome tool, but that is a bit disappointing.
