  1. FM Radio
  2. WiFi Hotspot

Any idea??

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

When you say "not available", exactly what do you mean? Do you have menu selections, but they do not function? Are the menu selections not there at all? Something else perhaps?

Also note that all of those have dependencies. FM Radio requires a compatible device...as I recall, your BB model is not so. The other two require support from your mobile service provider...if they do not allow those, then they will not be available to you.

Good luck!

yes it is a fact. The Bold series models do not have an FM receptor.
To listen to FM radio, you need to use a streaming application that will use data.

The series that has an FM receptor is the Curves series, forthe latest generation.
