    My understanding is that T-Mobile has disabled the FM radio in the T-Mobile branded version of the TM506. Your best bet if you have the Unlimited Web data package may be an Internet radio client app.
    Hope that helps,

    Some carriers have data packages available to prepaid, including T-Mobile USA, which offers Unlimited Web & Messaging for only $20/month on FlexPay (prepaid) accounts.

    My Internet radio client of choice is GlassPlayer, not free, but a very reasonable 2,99€ (under US$5).

    If you don't want to or can't figure out how to debrand your TM506, the built-in FM radio can be used without making any modifications to the phone. All you have to do is access the hidden Sony Ericsson service menu.

    The fm radio is accessbile from those menus.
