    My own screwup. :wacko:

    I was misreading that source of the app as being "Sprint" (you know, that other carrier).

    Any device that has BT has FM radio capabilities. Manufacturers don't always connect the circuit that allows the connection to be completed.

    Wait this is really cool! How does it work, the Bluetooth radio can be tuned to FM frequencies?

    From what I remember, they use the same frequencies. BT is just a bit higher than the FM stations, but has the range to pick up FM radio. Thatas why so many smartphones today have FM radio.

    was that app supposed to work with the D4? it crashes for me. the one in the market doesn't work (never loads) and I have one from my D2 and it does the same behavior.

    Installed Spirit FM Unlocked today, allowed root-access and worked straight away. On my Droid 4 running ICS. Installed it on the Droid 3 then, no issues either. No root required there.

    Thanks for the hints above. Really appreciated.
