FM Radio

Some phones include an integrated FM radio for listening to live-broadcast FM radio stations. Some phones with this feature require that a headset be connected to use this feature, so that the headset wire can be used as an antenna.

Since this feature allows the phone to receive FM radio directly using a separate antenna, it does not use the cellular network, and therefore does not cost anything to use regardless of cellular service plan.

Still confused? Spot a mistake? Give us your feedback on this definition.
