Restore FM radio on HTC One X+

ATT:

Please restore the FM Radio capability that is organic to the HTC One X+.  Why?

 

1, Not all local stations are available on streaming media.

2, Emergency broadcasts are still done over FM (whereas cell towers may or not survive extreme local weather patterns)

3, many gyms use small FM broadcasts for their TVs, so it's useful when working out.

 

Even though you could possibly lose a little revenue from having people access local stations through broadband, there is no revenue loss for the other two reasons.

It's actually still there but just not included in Apps. Try Settings-Personalize-Widgets-Search for "'radio." I got FM Radio as a choice but, I did it so long ago, I can't recall if I had to do anything else first for it to show up there. Once you find the widget, you can add it to a home screen. YMMV, HTH
