    Hello. I have just upgraded from my antiquated mobile to a Nokia 6225. It
    has an FM radio built in, and according to the handbook I should be able to
    use it with the internal speaker. However it refuses to start without a
    headphone connected. Can it really run on the internal speaker, or is a
    headphone essential? Also, it appears to be a fairly standard 1.5 mm socket.
    Is that the case, or is it needing some fancy (and probably expensive) Nokia
    headphone? Thanks for your help.

    You MUST have the headphones connected for the FM radio to work as it
    uses it as an antenna. Once you have activated the radio you should
    still be able to switch to the internal loudspeaker.

    Thank you for your help. I was afraid of that, and I suspect it will be
    quite pricey. I'll chech it out even so - you never know.

    Any headset should work to enable the antenna, so even a cheap after
    market one should do the job.

    Thanks - I'm beginning to think it would be easier in the long run to
    purchase one of thise ultra cheap little pocket radios and forget the phone
    as one. Where I live there is only one loccal station that blankets other
    further away ones unless you have a reasonably good radio, so the whole
    thing might be moot anyway. Thanks again for helping.

    Peter.

    the 6225 does require a special headset, I already tried the cheap,
    generic types. http://www.nokiausa.com/nokia_access...224,50,00.html
