Default Does the HTC EVO V 4G have an FM tuner?

And if so, does it use connected headphones as the antenna?

The Evo 3D does and it requires a pair of headphones with a cable in order to operate. So I would imagine the Evo V also has the similar set up.

The Virgin Mobile USA HTC Evo V 4G User Guide doesn't make any mention of an FM tuner. If the Evo V has an FM tuner, then it's not documented in the User Guide.

The Sprint HTC Evo 3D User Guide, on the other hand, specifically mentions the FM tuner and includes detailed instructions on how to use it.

There isn't an FM Radio app included. I found one in the app store but I can't make it work. Since this is literally the same phone, I'm pretty certain the fm radio is in there. Just don't know how to make it work. Also, I noticed if I adjust the volume with the app open, it says "FM Radio Volume".

Not sure... try this? Post if it works.

I attached the APK from this ZIP file of the above thread. There are other files in the ZIP file... not sure if necessary. Lemme know.
Installed the apk with androzip, plugged in my headphones and all is good, it will play through the speakers but you still need the headphones attached to use as an antenna

Do you need a seperate installer? I've gotten apps installed just by emailing myself the apk as an attachment, downloading it, and the built in apk installer does everything from there

Yeah if that works then I guess you don't. I know you can do it with adb too, probably other ways too. Whatever works!

Cool, looked like the rest of the files in the ZIP from that thread were useless... does the Radio have a widget for launcher?

Yup, works great! I downloaded the zip file from the thread, unzipped it using ES File Explorer, and installed the APK. I inserted the headphones, opened the FM Radio app and it works flawlessly! Great find guys! Thanks!

It needs those permissions so that it can lower the radio volume when you receive notifications.

Lightbulb App not preinstalled?



Why the EVO V did not come with apk file for FM Radio pre-installed? Is there a patent issue with Apple or Microsoft or Nokia?

These carriers and phone companies can work together and make our life easy by provind software or apk files for every hardware included in the phone. That will save us a lot of trouble!

I just emailed it my phone and it installed from there.You will get a popup box to change settings for Apps.Check the install from unknown sources or some such.But it installs quick after that!
Sounds really good and clear.Actually better than my old Sandisk Mp3 player.
Thanks folks!!!

No it uses OTA. That is it picks up standard FM radio waves using the headphone cord as an antenna. Which is also why it won't run unless you have headphones plugged in.

Turn on fast boot in the system settings. by far the fastest bootup from any phone I ever had, less than 20 seconds...I am getting an extended battery for that issue other than that best phone I ever had as well. Power button, ehhhh no issue

They do but why don't you just download it straight to the phone?

Thank you 3matthew13 for that app! I wasn't aware my VM Evo phone had an fm tuner, and I certainly wasn't expecting that app to work, but amazingly it does. I have no other radio other than what's in the car, so this is great for news and alerts and such. Thanks!

I haven't seen one and considering that it's mostly hardware specific I doubt they would take the time to update. Virgin promised to not load the phone with software so that's why it wasn't included, the mirror app from the 3d didn't make it either.

I just tried downloading the file directly from the phone but it says can't open file. Do I need a prerequisite?

did you use a app to download or you just got it directly of the web browser ?? idk if the phone has a built in download app but you usually need a app to download stuff directly to the phone and then you need another app to install like a installer and such what i usually do is download it to my PC and then transfer the APK to the phone and use a file explorer to install like i mention i used ES FILE EXPLORER that you can get of the playstore which is a file browser and also has many built in tools like app installer , you can transfer files from PC to phone threw wi-fi , it also has the option to have root permissions (that is if your rooted) once you mange to get the HTC radio APK to your phone by w.e way you choice simply open up the file browser go to where you saved it and click on it it should install also make sure you have the 'allow installation of non-market apps ' checked on under security on the settings
edit: if you know your way around a computer and your a advanced user you dont even need to get it to your phone if you set up ES FILE EXPLORER to link to your PC threw wi-fi you can install what ever APK of your PC with out having to transfer it to your phone

Thanks. I got it to install with es file explorer. No computer needed at all.

Another stupid question- since this has tuner hardware, can it work as a transmitter? Example, play Pandora on your phone and listen to it thru your car stereo by tuning it to an fm station?

no such thing as a stupid question if you don't know something you ask so you can know the answer right .. but good question well lets see it requires to have earphones plug in in order for the radio to work because it uses the earphones as a antenna so you are require to have a aux cord/earphones connected in order for the radio to work now if you trying to stream pandora to your car stereo you will need to have the transmitter plug into your phone which uses a AUX cable and then set your car stereo into the transmitter station so yes i think it should work havent used a transmitter in years my car is all bluetooth now but from what i remember aint the transmitter only compatible with the ipod's ?? but if your transmitter has a AUX cable just plug it into the phone it should work and there is no need to use the radio tuner since the aux cable will play the music directly from pandora and then the transmitter will stream the music threw the car radio by setting to the correct station that is set to the transmitter so you only need your car radio in order for the transmitter to work no need for the radio on the phone .. so why would you need the radio tuner on the phone for ???
