Looks like a jailbreak would cure it.

Not that most people here can afford iphones.

I've looked into this a lot, and it seems to be that though the chip is there, there are other hardware changes needed to access it.

Download the NextRadio app - if the chip isn't disabled it should work, and it will tell you right away if it's compatible with your phone. Uses your headphones as antenna. In the US works well w/ Sprint, YMMV on other carriers.

sadly, my phone apparently isn't. :( which is kind of unbelieveable, since I have an old dumbphone that could theoretically do that.
