    Hey there. I just got My EVO Yesterday from BB. Now today i was trying to mess around with the FM radio app and i noticed that you need to use your headphones as an antenna.. i plugged mines in and i got reception no where. idk if it is b/c my headphones aren't good enough. help would be nice. Do i need to get some sort of a special headphone proper for it?

    what kind of headphones did you use? i noticed that if my headphones where touching a desk or something id lose reception. other than that it worked great for me.

    Yeah mine works like crap too. I have tried different headphones and even gone outside to see if it would. Needless to say it didn't do a damn thing for me. I can't pick up a single station.

    Mine did the same thing. Even went outside and nothing worked. I was using my ipod touches 3rd gen ear buds with mic.

    I have a pair of Monster Jamz, which have a steel shell so it pulls the signal in very well

    I used a pair of Skull Candys earlier today and i picked up quite a few stations around here. Some i did have to manually tune to though, they still came in fine.

    So if headphones act as the antenna, how do you hear the music? Headphones also?? BlueTooth?? :) Speakerphone? I have yet to play with it - in the midst of battery testing atm.

    Have you pushed the headphones all the way down? I noticed mine wasn't working until i forced the headphones all the way in.

    I think there might be an issue with the phone jack.

    any headphone should work

    *remembers back to when the iPhone 2G came out and hardly any headphones could fit into the jack (all the way)* LMAO!! Poor Apple!! :)

    Mine picks up nothing, tried 2 different sets of headphones. I think not all are made to act as antennas. Wish there were a way to know which do and which don't...
