Is that the unlocked version? It appears that one, it doesnt have it or two, You have to load a carrier's firmware to activate it

I got the unlocked USA version too and found that the FM chip is not activated after installing NextRadio I checked with NextRadio and they were equally surprised since they also believe all US phones are supposed to have working FM function. I believe all the carrier phone phones worked though on another thread I started. Hopefully a firmware update will happen.

We have to try to install a full TMO FW , in my opinion .

Should work on Carrier FWs

I have the US unlocked version which received a software updated on 3/14. Didn't try NextRadio before the update but it works fine now.
[UPDATE: error - just streaming, no direct FM reception]

I also got a 3/14 update but NextRadio is still "streaming" without any FM functionality. Did you install any carrier firmware?

My current software version is: G965U1UE1ARBG/G965U1OY1ARBG/G965U1UEU1ARBG
