    radio is just waves in the air. the headphones act as an antenna to grab those waves and device translate it to audio.

    so i would say no charges should happen.
    u can also just turn off the 3g and 2g and see if the radio still works...

    Dear insomnium,
    Thanks for reply info.

    Would you mind if I took this point just a little further?

    As you know: Some phones come with radios and some don't. The Nexus S under it's specifications states it has no radio.

    However, the phone sellers: Car Phone Warehouse states that one can be downloaded and that no data or streaming charges take place. I doubt that suggestion. Hence my forum questions to all you wonderful Nexus users.

    Can this question (can a radio be downloaded to a Nexus S phone and used without paying data and streaming charges?) be put to bed once and for all?
    Yours cjb

    i doubt it since any radio app for a device that doesnt have the radio hardware would most likely stream from the internet.
    therefor using up your data

    Nexus Returned to Shop !!

    I was a very big Nexus S fan but because there is no am/fm radio on board I have decided - in fact I have- returned my Nexus S for a refund.

    I am a real Google fan; love everything they do; but not having an am/fm radio built in to phone was very disappointing news for me.

    I was mis-sold the phone so there was no problem getting monies refunded.

    Sorry Google and sorry Nexus (samsung)

    Would just like to say a big thank you to Nexus Forum members for trying to help me out with my Nexus now returned to shop.

    All the best !!
