    Samsung Mobile Espaa Hi Roberto,
    We've just checked and no, it doesn't not have radio. It's due to a hardware configuration son it doesnt depend on software updates. Best Regards!

    It's a copy/paste from web. Could they be wrong (is the spanish page) but it seems...a bad thing.

    Hi Guys, interesting topic about the availability of FM Radio in Ativ S. Investigating about the topic (got also a Ativ S) I found this video on youtube...Dont know if its a fake or a trick using an app but hope its true

    It is not a fake, a wpcentral user uploaded it few weeks ago. But good to know, at the moment its just an activated hidden program without the fm drivers.

    I don't know what that means, but I use TuneIn Radio, where I've checked `use fm tuner for local stations`. Instead of that, it still use audio buffer streaming.

    Well, I would say depends on where you are, in my country yes...there are no packages with more than 1GB (In fact I pay USD 90 monthly for it which here is not cheap)..another reason, based on our experience due living in country in a earthquake zone....when it happens, here all OEM net collapse and if you are outside the only way to know whats going on/where to go (if thats the case) is by the FM radio...so, in my case, I prefer to use have a FM radio installed on my phone :)

    I pay somewhat above 6 buck for 3 Gbytes per month though speeds are really bad here in Russia. It's almost every time H+ (HSPA 7.2Mbps) or H (HSDPA 3.2Mbps), often it's E (EDGE 236kbps), occasionally though it's 3G (UMTS 386kbps).

    But that's only connection speed (that's the negotiation speed between the receiver and the station). Data speeds are that worse that I can't listen neither iHeartRadio, nor TuneIn Radio, nor is it possible to listen to Xbox Music live, that's why my 32 gig SD card's running out of space. God save the person who took the decision to add SD card support to ATIV S. I am so badly needing it on Lumia 1020.

    Speaking of the hack to enable the radio, it looks more a dummy than a real thing, read here.

    Not in europe, but I converted the price.

    I pay €34/US$46 per month for 5GB data.

    Wow, I pay 9€/month for unlimited data at max 21Mbps down, no up limit. LTE worked too if the ATIV S only supported it. This is in Finland.

    We cannot enable the FM radio on the ATIV S, at least on the GT-i8750 [S]as it does not even have the Qualcomm supplied FM drivers installed.
    [/S] It seems there is qcfmminiport.dll, which is the FM driver.
    Also the CPU on my ATIV S GT-I8750 is 8960, tested with Qualcomm's configuration software.

    Whoa, what's the carrier? I am frequent traveler to Finland and would appreciate a clue on a good carrier/data plan in Finland. Would you mind to name it (possibly PM me if you could)?

    It's Tele Finland. Seems that they don't have the offer anymore, so it would be 13€/month for new customers. Sonera Sopiva has the same price for calls and texts and internet in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and in the Baltic countries so that could be a good option if you travel in these countries.

    Finland is cheap, really cheap these days.. I have Saunalahti and I pay 15€ about 20usd for:
    - 5000 min calls to all normal Finnish numbers land or mobile
    - 5000 sms or MMS
    - 2mbs unlimited data

    Normal price for this plan is 25€. This was a special offer price I got for 12 month period, but there is no time limit on the contract so I can move on after the 12 months. I think I could have got the same numbers but 21mbs speed for 20€, I had 21mbs before, but really I havent noticed any difference really. At home I have 100/10mbs cable for 8,90€ for month :D
