    was sort of disappointed it did not come with a standard fm tuner.
    does anyone know & where to get one just to get your local stations not eating your data plan up like tunein app? someone needs to design a basic app if it's possible

    Nothing programmers can do. IF you read the links, you would see, the chip has FM,. but it's DISABLED.
    So, there is nothing for a programmer to access.
    I don't even think Motorola could just "Flip it on" with a firmware update unless it's a full chip flash that would have to be done on a technician.

    Atrix has fm transmitter, not a receiver. Therefore, FM radio does not exist in Atrix 4G, sadly.

    Actually, if you read the link to XDA, it has BOTH FM receiver, and transmitters on the chipset.
    However, Motorola DISABLED both functions at the chip.
