Some web sites list Fido models as having an FM radio, when Fido's website does not list such a feature being available.
Which current phones sold by Fido have FM Radios? I want to make sure that the Fido versions do not have the radio disabled for some reason.
***Edited to add labels***
Solved! Go to Solution.
At the moment, none of the phones we carry include an FM radio feature.
Keep an eye on Fido.ca. If this changes, you'll see this feature listed in the specifications page for the phone you're interested in.
Do you have a Pulse plan? Have you thought about giving Spotify a try?
That is very strange. Fido's owner Rogers owns a lot of radio stations, and I could be listening to some of them on the radio. If you make me download an app and pay for data, I'm sure to listen to a commercial-free stream, and not a Rogers station.
The bottom ;ine is that most phones already contain the FM radio hardware at no extra cost, yet Fido, among other North American carriers, chose to disablew the hardware. This amounts to a form of false advertising, since a google search of most of your phones will show that other variants WITH THE SAME NAME have the radio included.
How come the LGG4 does not have the FM radio enabled? I use to have the Nokia that did. I changed phones and now I can't get the radio. Just wondering why some do and some don't. Thanks Cee1
Welcome to the community We're always looking to offer our customers new features on their devices. Enabling FM chips in our smartphone lineup requires the support of the device manufacturers and we're working with them on any plans they have for FM radio.
I hope this helps
I would venture a guess that there simply isn't much demand for it. Which would be supported by the very few numbers of phones that have that feature (all phones - not just those carried by Fido).
Few phones in Canada. But most phones in the rest of the world.
This is all the more strange given that two of the dominant carriers own the most FM stations in the country as well.
"I don't think a meeting ever went like this:
Person1: "So I think we should carry this phone; great features, low price, highly demanded world-wide, and even has an FM receiver."
Person2: "It all looked good until you mentioned the FM receiver - we can't have that. Next!"
Honestly, I didn't even know there were any phones with a FM receiver. No one I know ever mentionned that as an interesting feature."
Respectfully? Um ya, no. Research would indicate that just because one does not know phones have an FM receiver doesn't mean lots of people do NOT know it. Everywhere I've traveled in Europe, it is well known.
As for the meeting? Think Apple iPhone.
Alter the dialogue, & you can bet your bottom cahoona a meeting or two did go like that~!
