Did you know that every cell phone In the US has an FM chip which can receive your local FM radio stations? The problem is that the cell phone companies have turned the chip off in an effort to force you to consume more data. The purpose of this petition is to tell lawmakers to create legislation to require the cell phone providers to turn on the FM chip in cell phones. This will provide an equal playing field for terrestrial radio stations by unlocking the mobile interface while also giving consumers access to critical information during times of emergencies. When a hurricane strikes, radio is the only form of communication still able to reach the masses. It does not make sense that cell phone providers are blocking us from this free, potentially live saving content. Please sign this petition to tell your lawmakers to pass legislation that would require the FM chip to be turned on in mobile phones.
