    The instructions for my 6102i say that to use the FM radio feature you
    have to have an external headphone which also acts as the FM antenna,
    similar to a walkman. But, I cannot find anything on the phone that
    appears to be a headphone jack.

    Does this mean that the headphone needs to be a special, and probably
    over-priced unit that would use the multi-pin connector on the bottom of
    the phone?

    a couple of years ago for my now defunct 6260 bought on eBay out of HKG
    a short adopter cable at a very low price. It was only about 6" long
    and one end fit the multi-pins and the other the normal round jack
    common to most headphones. In all probability such is still available.
