Radio on the Bold

I heard that the Bold has XM satellite radio.  Is that true?  Do you have to pay XM/Sirius a monthly fee?  What about FM radio?  I don't understand why smartphones can't have something as simple as radio.

Re: Radio on the Bold

XM is available on the Bold.


Flycast.fm broadcasts FM as well from a preset (and a very nice selection) list of stations and music genres. It is free.
