    Have a Droid Bionic phone that I understand has a FM tuner but needs an app to get it to work. I tried looking up info on the internet and saw posts on downloading a FMRadio.apk File. Does anyone know if this or any website will work. I can not get it to work on my phone. Thanks for any help I can get

    I had a Bionic for a year and don't remember it having a built in FM Radio.

    Apparently I was wrong, the Bionic did have a built in FM Tuner chip. However, according to this thread on the Moto Forum the functionality was removed with the Jelly Bean update. If the phone you have is on the Jelly Bean OS you probably will not have any luck with any app. If, by chance, it is still on ICS, the FM Tuner might still work.

    Thanks for you replies. I have the Jelly Bean O/S and now i know I don't have a FM tuner. You gave me info I probably would have never found.

    You are welcome. It took me a while to remember that thread...I had a Bionic during the ICS to JB upgrade and forgot all about the FM Tuner capability. Shame they took it away. If data usage is not an issue, there are some great Streaming Radio apps available.
