    All of our devices are capable of FM radio. It's WP8 that has it disabled I believe.

    Gdr2 reenables the fm radio for the compatible phones. You can find it in Xbox music of you have an headset plugged in.

    It was supposed to be enabled with GDR2 but on the ATIV S it's still disabled, that makes this extremely interesting as without the FM Radio hardware the Test Menu wouldn't have it listed.

    GDR2 is supposed to enable FM Radio on the ATIV S but even with a headset plugged in it still doesn't show up.

    What model is this i8750 or t889m? The pic below is the reason why is ask. I have been reading alot on this forum that the ativ s doesn't have the chipset suitable for fm radio, maybe this can clear the air.

    Unless we have definitive proof from Samsung on this I wouldn't believe what they are saying in those other threads ;-)

    Another website with false info. It claims the SGH-T899M has a QSD8650 processor. QSD8650 is a scorpion processor. Single-core and maxes out at 1GHz. These processors were on the first gen WP7 devices like the LG Optimus 7! The first retail WP7 device! We just need to wait for official info from SAMSUNG not some other site

    The T899M uses a different SOC as it's LTE capable, whether it uses the QSD8650 I don't know but you're right, we need to hear from Samsung instead of speculating ;-)

    I can bet you $1 million dollars the ATIV S does NOT use the QSD8650. QSD8650 is a single-core processor clocked at 1GHz. This processor was announced in 2008!!
    QSD8650 is a WP7 1st Gen Processor!!


    ATIV S uses MSM8960, thats for the I8750. I'm not sure about the SGH-T899M as it has LTE and may use a different SoC

    I'm not stupid, I can read but it seems you need to reread my post as I put and I quote "...whether it uses the QSD8650 I don't know..." you know what that means, don't you. Here's a hint, I DON'T F****** KNOW!!!!!!

    So don't get like that with me, I stated that I didn't know and you still had a go at me for it!!!!

    It doesn't take a genius to realise that the T899M uses a different SOC as the MSM8260A doesn't support LTE!!!!!!

    In German magazines they say that Samsung only shipped branded, locked WP8 devices with FM radio. All the regular i8750 will not get FM radio... Might be a business decision. As to the T899, it might have the hardware.

    canadagsm.com lists the t899m as having an msm8960 as well

    I know that, but from that post, many people even in my pm keep asking if its true that it uses a QSD8650 and I got fed up. I was just stating that it was false and linking them to this post. Sorry if it offended you. But yes. It does not use a QSD8650. People believe anything here and use it against the ATIV S on other devices. The rumor about the ATIV S not having FM radio was already proven false on xda-developers but yet, in a thread where someone asked Lumia 820 or ATIV S, people kept saying "820. ATIV S doesn't have FM radio" or "ATIV S doesn't have FM radio. Don't get the ATIV S. Get the 820" (just a few examples).

    EDIT: I found a YouTube comment on recombu's ATIV S vs L920 video about the QSD8650 on the ATIV S.

    Once again Samsung dropping the ball on Windows Phone features. I bet you they just don't want someone with Windows Phone to have more features than their precious Androids.

    Sort it out Samsung!

    All Samsung has to do is release a software update to add FM Radio support.
