    Is it possible to use the iPhone as an FM radio receiver without using data (LTE or WiFi)?

    I heard a commercial of some sort on some radio station while I was in my car. They were asking folks to download an app that allows the phone to become a radio receiver. They were emphasizing that it would work even in emergencies where cell phone towers were not working.

    I hope I hear that ad again some time. I'll pay more attention. I figured I'd just google for it and information about the app would show up.

    Do Android/Blackberry phones have this?

    Some Android phones are able to pickup FM radio.

    OK, maybe the ad was targeted at those users.

    My iPod Nano 5th Gen has an AM/FM receiver. :D

    I can even pause live radio. :D

    It uses the earphone wires as the antenna.
