Enable FM Chips on Smartphones Canada!

Today’s smartphones already have an FM receiver built in! This means that everyone could have free and easy access to radio for the entertainment they love and information they need, but those FM receivers are not activated by all wireless carriers and phone makers. Listening to radio on your phone using the FM chip instead of over the internet saves you valuable data and battery life. Though some wireless carriers and phone manufacturers have agreed to activate the FM chip, we need your help to send a message to those that remain that free FM radio matters to you!

It's time to change this and give us our free FM access CANADA!  Sign the petition, contact the telecoms and make your voice heard with the Free Radio On My Phone.ca Campaign
