FM Radio Tuner in OS 7.1
Does anyone know about any apps for the integrated radio tuner that is in 7.1? I was checking the Blackberry Web site and it showed all the features of 7.1 and I didn't know how to get the tuner to work on my 9850. Will there be an app release for this in the future? I think the new Curve is coming with it pre-installed.

This seems to leave room for there to be an FM antenna on the Bold 9930, but everything I've read so far has been very vague...Keith. I BLACKBERRY! My devices: Passport, Playbook16GB & 32GB,

Inside BlackBerry Blog post announcing OS 7.1:
FM Radio: The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will let BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 and 9380 smartphone customers enjoy FM radio. The Curve models include a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to local FM radio stations. Simply plug in your headset to boost the reception (it acts as the antenna). Plus, no data usage or data plan required!

Iheart radio can be downloaded directly to the BB9930 through the browser and hitting the download button they provide. Reboot to activate. FM and AM actually come in quite nice. I like to listen talk radio while out mowing the lawn. My problem is having the new Motorola S-10HD Bluetooth headset and not getting the radio to come through the headset. My earbuds work but no bluetooth headphones
