Yes it does, of course headphones need to be attached to receive reception.

I guess if you have 4g, tune in is more than sufficient to replace the fm radio

iphone 5 has 4G aswell , yet you commented on it

all im saying is its rediculous that the upgraded version has lost basic features, you might have the 4g version of the S3 , doesnt mean you will have 4g reception

Apparently it is to do with the lte radio clashing. The american versions that have lte don't have a FM transmitter.
