Dear TING - we know Sprint is refusing to allow TING to active the FM receiver chip on most modern smartphones claiming it is a premium feature for their direct customers. But we (the end-customers) paid for the phones we use, like my new unlocked S7 with this hardware functionality. The update is only flipping the switch so to speak and requires no network services to operate, in fact this is why we need this. It is imperative to have an FM receiver available in cases of natural and human disasters and to purposely disallow this functionality is showing a complete lack of conscience. We need you to take action and push for this life-saving feature.
To those who say - just buy a cheap FM radio I say - yes - I have one in my go-bag. But be honest, is you emergency kit with you everywhere you go? Is your smartphone with you everywhere you go? Enough said.
