    FM Radio without earphones

    Is there any way to play the FM radio app over the speaker phone? Every time I try to use the FM radio app it says I need to plug in a headset.

    Headset is needed for antenna...

    You can also use desktop speakers or the aux line that comes with the car dock. There is an option in the radio settings to play on speaker but you have to have headphones or one of the above connected as they act as an antenna.

    I took an old pair of earphones and cut all but about 3 inches off. I still get good reception and it's much easier to keep up with.

    You would need to be fairly close to the radio station towers if you could get around the requirement. You can't receive anything without an antenna.

    So the earphones serve as the antenna?

    What about having the earphones plugged in and use a bluetooth headset? I have a rather short pair of headphones at work and don't want to turn around and jerk the X off my desk.
