    This is really disappointing; I have Rogers Ative S and I got the update. no FM radio, data sense, no option to select default lenses. Overall nothing new.

    This is what tick me off, it does not fix other storage bug.

    Really disappointed in Microsoft and Samsung. I think it's time to switch OS

    I think its more a Samsung than a WP issue, IIRC unbranded ativ's didn't get fm radio or datasense so its on Samsung. However seeing as Tmo's 925 has datasense and att's 1020 doesn't carrier influence is also a factor and unfortunately that seems to be a distinct weakness of WP compared to other platforms so your reaction isn't entirely unjustified.

    There were ativ's in Germany that did not get fm radio and data sense with their gdr2 update.

    Backup your apps and then do a factory reset. Restore your apps and then check if you have the same issue after a few days.

    My suggestion don't be too hasty . If the issue still persists do switch to Android or whatever OS you deem worthy. It is your money after all.

    Confused? Don't think a factory reset will fix not having fm radio or datasense?

    Weird, yes, but it worked for someone else in another thread.

    I think I'll wait it out rather than do a factory reset. That may in fact work, but it's not the way it's supposed to work. I have no use for FM radio and little use for Data Sense.

    Not sure why we should attempt a reset. It may not even work for everyone.

    EDIT: A reset managed to work for me. Though it's also possible that Samsung will release another update in a little while with a quick fix (wishful thinking?).

    Just FYI, The ATIV S is missing the radio chip, that's why no FM Radio, no update will be able to give the ATIV S FM radio.

    Hard reset does work. I got data sense now, hopefully other storage bug is fixed, time will tell.
    For fm radio, this phone doesn't have the chip.

    I lost YouTube app because of hardrest

    I don't know who is spreading this crap, but I'm pretty sure it's been confirmed that Ativ S has the FM Radio hardware, but is licensing the features to individual carriers.

    According to Bell's release notes, there is no mention about FM Radio being enabled. So, regardless whether or not the device supports it, it hasn't been activated with GDR2. This is just, however, for the Canadian version of the phone. I'm not sure if European models had their FM Radio enabled.

    GDR2 for Samsung ATIV S on Bell changelog leaked, coming 5th August | WMPoweruser

    The Snapdragon S4 (MSM8960) in the ATIV S uses an analog chip to enable FM Radio and Bluetooth 4.0 (the WCN3660). The Galaxy S3 has this chip, but it is missing from the ATIV S

    Maybe you could point us to some evidence of the missing chip? This was never mentioned before the update hit and there was no radio enabled so I wonder where this info is coming from.

    Samsung Ativ S I8750 - Full phone specifications You'll notice that under Features for radio is just says no whereas with the Nokia Lumia 920 (which has the same processor, and has the WCN3660 chip, it says FM Radio) Nokia Lumia 920 - Full phone specifications. With the 920 the FM Radio is just software blocked, on the ATIV S it is non-existent, along with Bluetooth 4.0, because Samsung did not include the combo chip.

    Afaik Nokia never listed fm radio in the specs for the 920 either, so how gsmarena came about listing it before it was announced strikes me as odd.

    Dont mean to add to the confusion but check THIS LINK out under multimedia broadcast it states it has an analog fm radio, go figure.

    Because the 920 uses the WCN3660 combo chip for Bluetooth 3.1/4.0. FM Radio is part of that chip. The 920 has hardware support for FM Radio. This chip is why the 920 received Bluetooth 4.0 certification

    Why is it so important for the radio...just curious? I've had it for years and only used it once to try it out.
