    I have a Sony Ericsson W5801i Walkman phone. It has an FM tuner. I'm getting ready to upgrade in a couple months to a Sony Ericsson Cyber-Shot. It also has an FM tuner. It may be common with all the sony ericsson phones. I know I use mine quite often. The only catch is, you have to plug the headphones into the phone because they serve as the antenna. you can either listen with the headphones or use the phone's speaker. It comes in quite handy.

    Do you have to use the provided earbuds, or can you use your own? I wish my cellphone had an FM tuner. I like listening to NPR while in the car, and would love to listen while I'm elsewhere...

    The phone comes with it's own earbuds they have a special jack and a connector in the middle that you disconnect when you want to use the phones speaker and just need the antenna. The phone also comes with a USB cable and is very user friendly for adding music and downloading pics from your phones camera. Most other cell phones I've had you had to buy the USB cable seperate.

    Sony W810i has FM, but you have to plug in the hands free cable to us... You can use what ever headphones you like with the hands free, or set the it for speaker phone. good FM/phone reception BTW , & stellar focus-able camera (instead of pre-focused garbage like most phones have). If you're willing give up the smart phone type stuff it's a killer phone. It's also MS duo expandable, so there's no need to sacrifice your media collection.

    My Sony Ericsson 760a has FM. As with everyone else, the headphone or attachment cable is required to provide antenna.

    I have a Motorola W208 that also has an FM tuner.It can memorize up to nine radio channels by pressing on one of the numbers on the keyboard so store the frequency of that particular channel that you are on.And same as yours, it uses its own set of earbuds and you have to plug them in, otherwise it won't work.If you want to use the speaker you still have to leave the earbuds in.The earbuds it uses have a special, thinner jack.
