Hi,

 

According to the user manual LG_G4_User_Manual it should have. 

 

"FM radio Your phone has a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to your favourite stations and listen on the go."

 

Also Gsmarena shows it as a spec in here

 

I would try removing your SIM card to check as you say it disappeared after inserting it. 

 

I would be surprised Vodafone having anything to do with this. Is the phone unbranded or branded ?

It's a branded version. Vodafone screen appears on start up.

Hi

 

The reason I asked is that Vodafone do hold back a firmware released by the manufacturer to ensure nothing within it clashes with their Network or Branded Handsets. 

 

Firmware Statement

 

I'm not suggesting Vodafone would have the radio part removed as I cannot see how that would clash. 

 

Have you double checked and removed the sim ?

 

You could speak to LG UK Support here just for official clarification that the phone should have the radio and firmware version has no bearing. 

 

If you have a local Vodafone HighStreet Store with a working demo model on display you could check if that has a radio.

At the risk of asking a really obvious question: have you looked in the app drawer?   I've noticed that putting a SIM into a new phone sometimes resets the homescreens, so what you may have seen is the icon disappearing from there - at least, I hope that's all it is.

 

If you still can't find it, go into Settings|Apps and the All tab and make sure the radio one hasn't been disabled for some reason.  If it is, re-enable it and it should appear in the app drawer so that you can put it on a homescreen.

Checked all that and it has disappeared from my apps altogether. When I put the sim card in it did reset the home screen.

Idle apps?   That's a new one on me!   Is it an LG thing?  I'm amazed it would uninstall, though - I'd assume just park.

It's something to do with Smart clean. It cleans any unused idle apps. I might turn that off.

Ah.  That would explain it.  I always discourage devices from organising things and doing their own housekeeping.   It always leads to confusion and misunderstandings!
