Exclamation Touch Pro 2 FM Radio Questions/Answers

So it's been recently bothering me, that i have yet to come across some hardcore evidence of FM radio capability on the Touch Pro2. I've seen the FM Radio listed as something the chipset had as well, besides the other usual stuff (Wifi, Bluetooth)

So for those of you who have a Touch Pro2 Now, (Telus folk?) anyone really, is the FM Radio locked out like its TP1 Brethren, or is it finally open for all of us to bask in its eternal RDS Capable glory?

So far, the GSM guys have installed the FM Radio cab and have it working. No one on Telus has been able to get it to work.

Re: Touch Pro 2 FM Radio Questions/Answers

ugh you've got to be kidding me, i wonder if this is a continuing fad that CDMA phones cant have FM Radio. i wonder if the FCC have something to do with this.

All joking aside, that's disappointing for the Telus folk. Heres to hoping FM radio unlock with radio firmware updates, or some genius like no2chem to figure this out.

To bad there are no datasheets on the MSM7600, otherwise he would be on this in an instant.

I also hate when people post this. 1. Not every station has an internet feed. 2. Not everyone has contiguous 3G coverage. 3. My battery can't even make it a full day as it is, a continuous data session would just further this problem.

Agreed. FM Radio is desirable in many cases over Internet radio, especially since it is usable where 3G coverage is non-existent, and it uses FAR less battery power!
