Accessing radio stations without using data plan

Radio is free but for me to listen to a radio station on my BB, I have to download an app. Wouldn't it be great if the BB offered a radio feature without needing data plan? Is this even doable with smart phones?

Re: Accessing radio stations without using data plan

Some Blackberries at one point did have a FM receiver (eg Curve 9320).  Not sure how well the battery lasted, but I agree it was something more to use with the phone.

 

Some fake Blackberries had the ability to watch video too.
