Re: Can't find the FM Radio and the battery saving mode

Hello,

 

For the FM radio, please see this helpful BB Blog Post:

FM radio depends on an FM radio receive being physically inside the BB already, which your model does not have. Therefore, no amount of OS or software can overcome a hardware limitation like that.

 

For Battery Saving, check here:

  • Homescreen > Options > Device > Battery Saving Mode

See if it's there...that's where it is for me...then again, I am on a much later 7.1 OS than you, so perhaps it's different. You also should perhaps review your user manual for your specific model and OS level to be sure it's included.

 

Good luck!
