T-Mobile: We're turning on the FM chip

AT&T appears to have started a trend. Two weeks after the country’s No. 2 wireless provider said it will turn on the FM chip in its new Android phones, starting next year, T-Mobile has decided to do the same. The company’s chief executive officer, John Legere, tweeted on Friday that T-Mobile will be offering Android phones with the FM chip activated, starting in 2016. The move came after pressure from NextRadio, an app people can use to dial in stations on the FM chip. The app, owned by radio company Emmis Communications, had been tweeting to T-Mobile saying that people wanted the FM chip turned on.
