There are only two reasons I can think of for the US carriers to have removed the FM tuner. 1) Maybe Samsung made them a lower price or, 2) there wasn't room inside the case after installing the radios required by US carriers.
I live in an HSPA+42 city and I get very impressive download speeds with my SGS2 - over 20 Mbps is common and I average around 15-16 Mbps. Yet streaming radio stations still cut out periodically. Yesterday I was streaming a *local* radio station for two hours, and four times it cut out for about ten-fifteen seconds. Today I was streaming a station in the Netherlands and it was far worse.
