    Yeah, but you cant utilize the phone speakers like this. You WILL need the extension for that(i THINK) .
    good thing you now know... i use my PC speakers with a 3.5 jack extension cord and use my phone as a MP3 player so its beside my pillow. You can also use the 'loudspeaker' but the earphones should be attached. Radio will also work if you have a bluetooth headset on and use the BT as your 'earphones'.

    I think nokia just had an attachement/earphone requirement to use the radio to avoid the phone to be a "Boom box" and annoy people around you with your load music. just my 2 cents

    Indeed, you can plug anything with a 3.5mm jack into the phone and the radio will work through the phone speakers. Just using a jack with the wires cut off isn't going to provide any kind of decent reception, the requirement is because whatever is plugged into the 3.5mm jack is used as an aerial for the radio; no aerial = no reception = no point enabling the radio

    bah, sorry for my poor english but i try to repeat: in my location(Turin) i can listen many FM radio stations WITHOUT the headset cable, works well with a simple 3.5mm jack inserted (WITHOUT cord as antenna)

    Oh yes of course, there will be exceptions, but for the majority of people an antenna is required.

    You're English is just fine and a million times better than my Italian

    I tried plugging in the 3.5mm jack on the control part of the earphones (the one that comes in the box). I then connected my bluetooth headset and listened thru it perfectly. So, if you dont mind a short cable hanging out the top of your phone, you can make it work!

    yes, but i ask if there's a way to patch the radio app to disable to check the inserted headphone jack

    If nothing is plugged in, there is no antennae and thus no signal. Just use the the control wire without the headset that you received with the 5800.
