    What a joke. I have tried it all, push the headphones in, pull them slightly out, tried my wifes phone, and two kids phones, all the same result, a totally useless waste of space.

    Not a great receiver, but it works for me. I get strong signal station only though.

    you've got to use TRRS type headsets or the radio will work like crap. At least that's been my experience. I plugged in a standard pair of "earbuds" into the phone and the radio reception was crap. Bought a cheap pair of earbud/mic combo (TRRS type) and the radio works great!!!!!!!!

    Thanks. By the way. Created my account for probably the same reason you did, bought an Android phone.
  10. Sound is very clear and strong with mine. I don't listen to the radio but I like having it. My issue: Not being able to click through the stations I saved.

    Noted on the headphones... thanks guys I was starting to wonder WTF as well.
  13. Just tried my Skull candy earbuds and my Sony over-ear headphones and both work great. wonder what makes a difference. I do live in the capital city so reception is not usually a problem.

    Glad to know to try out a few earbuds, headphones. I haven't used the radio yet, but plan on doing so for football season. I go to all the home games but also like to have one earbud in so I can hear the radio announcing the players, plays, etc. Hard to what all the F is going on when your watching the whole thing, too :)

    My problem w/ the FM radio and I had this prior to froyo update is when I use it, there's no exit option to close out of this app. if you just unplug the ear piece and even if you wait 1/2 hr and plug it back in, it's still playing. I will use task killer or go into system/application and end the process there and even though it's not showing anymore as a running app. it's still plays. I have to reboot to get it to stop every time.

    Most android devs and even the original makers of applications such as the radio do not put a dedicated button, what you have to do is press the arrow key on the Evo, the little back/exit button. That should terminate the application, should.

    Do you not see the power icon on the top right when you are in the radio app? o_O. If you still do not see it I can provide a screenshot. With a BIGGG HUGEE ARRROW
