iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    The iPhone does not have an FM radio receiver.  The apps are for Internet radio stations only.

    seriously?

    where does it say iphone has a built in fm radio? no where in the packaging

     

    why not ask, does it bake a cake or does it have a toaster.

     

    next thing you gonna ask, how do i use the laser pen.

    You should have kept that old AM/FM Walkman you took to the gym in the 90s.

     

    Seriously, I joined a gym just last night, and when I got on the treadmill and wanted to listen to the ESPN broadcast on one of the ten flat-panel displays on the opposite wall, I was SOL.  They were all on FM frequencies.  So I ended up having to listen to Pandora on my iPhone, and checking the WWW for any app that would fix the problem.  Obviously from this discussion, there is nothing.

     

    Oh well, time to go to an electronics store and look for a cheap FM receiver to keep in my gym bag...

    iPod nano has built in fm radio.

    Why would I want to spend $100 or more for a Nano when I just spent $300 for an iPhone, just to get FM radio at the gym? I'd rather pay $10 for a Wal Mart radio.
