    Yep, it does. I was looking at SanDisk Sansas over the weekend, and a couple of them have radios built in. I'm sure there are plenty of others - that's just the first one I remembered.

    The Zune does for sure.

    Sweet, thanks! I'll ask for one (probably the SanDisk, which may be much cheaper than the Zune) for Christmas then! Though I won't get my hopes up.

    Hubby didn't want me to get a Verizon phone with V-Cast. :( Instead he wanted the freebies & we got the LG 5200. I don't know if I like it yet. I wanted something different than his & with music, though not necessarily downloadable songs.

    By the way, DJ, our son couldn't get the flip open keyboard-type phone you recommended. Verizon discontinued that one & has a new one that's similar, but supposedly better & it costs more.

    So he got a Chocolate & loves it. Now he just has to buy the SanDisk/Transflash card & a Music Essentials Kit to use it as an MP3 player. But he can download songs through Verizon's site, which he's already done.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    Have it & love it as well! And it has a voice recorder, surprising how handy that can come in at times :wink:

    Do either of these have raised buttons, as in knobs?

    I have the Sandisk e250 & it does have an FM radio & voice recorder (the whole e200 line sold in the US has FM radio) It's very particular about signal strength & interference though.

    I rarely use the FM feature because I get very poor reception. I still love it though!!!

    Check out www.anythingbutipod.com-- it's a pretty informative site about all non-iPod mp3s.

    Good luck!

    Ooh, thanks for the replies, that gave me more brands & models to add to my "wishful thinking" :wink: list!

    The iPod also has FM radio, but it's not built in. Not too bad, but for me, an FM feature isn't worth it. I want my music commercial-free. :lol:

    I also have a Sandisk. Mine is a small one holds I believe 120 songs. I just got my daughter one for Christmas it holds 420 or 480 songs. I can't remember which. It has the voice recorder and fm radio. Plus I got a 2 month free subscription to Napster all for 89.99+tax :D

    I bought my sister a Sandisk for this Christmas and it has a built in radio. I bought the Sansa e260(?). Some of the Creative's have radios built in.

    I went & did a search for "Anything but iPod" and the first result was the recommended site. So never mind, I found it! :oops:
  • tinabcurlytinabcurly Posts: 545Registered Users
    sorry about the dashes there... I didn't even realize I did that.

    glad you found it anyway!
