You are going to hell for turning your back on htc. Lol jk i expected htc droid dna or htc butterfly on your list. But right now i believe note2 is the best.

i'm not a genius or anything so this is just me throwing ideas around

if you're able to send FM signal, you may be able to develop an app that sends FM signal?

wouldn't that violate FCC, or require some extra licensing that t-mobile or samsung don't want to shell money/time approving?

Wikipedia says they didn't include the FM tuner with our version of the phone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Note_2 . The N7100 version has the tuner. Like the other poster above, I'd love to be wrong but I think that if the phone had an FM tuner it would have been found by now.

IMO the major U.S. Carriers told Samsung to remove the fm tuner hardware from their versions because they have no way of monetizing it, so they'd rather have you chewing up your data with a radio app.

Yep its always about the $$$. Maybe we can loby congress to mandate all us carriers install the chip.
Claim national security or somthing. It would seem to me a lowsley 50 cent chip could medicate a lot of risk.
My 2cents..

Do you have a source for this? Or is it speculation? Isn't is possible that the different baseband that allows LTE simply doesn't have the ability to do FM? As that is a MAJOR difference between the 7100 and 7105 varieties. Either way, unless you have hard proof, you might want to refrain from stating an opinion as a fact, might not turn out so well, especially if you are wrong...

And what does that have to do with anything? Not trying to be a jerk, but that is not proof, nor even hard evidence to suggest what you theorized. Nor does it disprove my theory. Unless, somewhere buried in the 1000s of posts is something convincing (and if there is, maybe next time link to that), I have to say that proves nothing.
