Just a thought...
Has anyone ever tried making a rubber Ducky type antenna that just plugs into the headphone jack while you listen to the music using Bluetooth Stereo Headphones?
If you know of such a thing, PLEASE POST A LINK!!!
I figure an antenna such as this would be much nicer to carry around then using a pair of ear buds that have to be plugged and unplugged all the time. And it would also greatly reduce the chance of damaging / wearing out the headphone jack

Do you need to root your device or does it depend on the settings from the individual manufacturer? I assume if FM is activated you don't need to root your phone but you would need to root it if its not activated?
Saumil, 20 Sep 2013When note 2 has launched, its price was 35600 in India. note 3 has come only with few minor ch... morei disagree with you. Note 2 was initially launched for 39-40K. Also Note 3 is not just incremental improvement over the Note2. It has inbuilt 32gb,Full HD display,13 MP camera with improved software,Improved S pen functionality.This is what so far we have seen. It might be having many more improvement. We will come to know once we get it's full review.Also depreciation in rupee has also contributed to this high price factor.So if you wait for few months you will get it around 44-45k.

Only I not too sure,whether Samsung has activated or deactivated it,you got to try it,if it does,the good news is chances you will get your radio working with note 3 by installing the app Spirit FM unlimited,yes it's an on-air radio app,NO STREAMING,NO INTERNET CONNECTION NEEDED.Purely Air reception with frequencies tunning.
Note 3 users please try it out and let us know whether it rocks,remember to plug in the headphone for antenna purposes.As long you open this app,there is sound coming out from your earphone or speaker,that it is,if it mutes,goto settings and play with the setting,you might have to enable certain radio chipset to make it sound,but chances are the settings already mostly set to Auto in default,so it might prove that it doesn't work on note 3,just too bad that Samsung has disabled the hardware.
The radio app is 100% proved working on HTC Butterfly S,because its FM radio Hardware is enabled.
Good luck !
[deleted post]nope... note 2 was launched at 40000, not 36000 but ur point is correct, note 3 is hugely overpriced... i expected somewhere around 43k(max 45k) but it broke all the record... its even costlier than iphone 5S.... samsung z going down day by day and sony has got a very good chance to capitalise now... was hoping to get it by selling note 2 but now m goin to stick with my note 2...i am wondering within 4-5 years these new flagship phones will cost in lakhs...

That is where software like spirit FM comes in... i'm not sure if you need to root your device though. My note 2 has FM radio so i have never used spirit FM.
The snapdragon 800 has an FM tuner. Even if Samsung doesn't enable it you should be able to install software and get it.
FM radio is HARDWARE !
how can you download FM radio ? :S
And you can get FM Radio dedicated player for $5 .. for that y you not buying note 3 ?
[deleted post]Actually thats the same for the rest of the world because the note II came with 16/32/64gb the note III comes with 32/64gb that s why the first price is higher....
I can't believe this phone doesn't come with an FM Radio.I hope one can download an FM radio app for this one cos if not I aint getting it.
samsung lunch ahighy qulity phone note 3 but not change in differnt .please this higest price mobile is an 100% water proof i want
a superb smartphone but i can only buy this phone if it was having a stereo fm radio on board...it such a pity that both the galaxy s4 and galaxy note 3 do not have stereo fm radio in them...please samsung wake up because you are losing more funs just not only because of plastic designs of your galaxy series smartphones but also your inability to put FM radio in these devices..frankly speaking,many of us prefer SAMSUNG over APPLE phones simply because the option for FM radio..it is such a pity i and my friends can not buy this awesome phone just because of this issue..hoping that SAMSUNG will address this abnormality by putting FM radio in their subsequent galaxy note flagships..
