Are you tuning the stations properly?

The private FM channels transmit from the same facility as the AIR. So if you are getting AIR properly, you should receive the other channels too.

you replaced your headset with cheaper one?.. originals only are good as they act as antenna tuned to the mobile...

Another option is to get a small cap that has two antennas on the side that can be connected to the mobile. That will give you good reception all the time.

Sorry OP, whenever I see Gobble, my inner comedian comes out. :)

On audiophile tuners, the IFF alignment needs to be performed if you wish to have a clearer reception of a station. Maybe a Nokia service centre should be able to do it- if at all mobile phones have such a circuit .....

What I know of FM tuners in cell phone (and other mobile devices) is that nowadays these are dedicated IC tuners that eliminates the need for external parts such as inductors, varactor, tuned stages etc. Everything needed for FM reception is within the IC and occupying a footprint of only about 15~20 mm2. These ICs are made by companies such as Philips and Sanyo in millions and essentially follow the IFF architectures of type of tuner employed in digital radio and TVs.

Thus I doubt there would be any scope for IF alignment as on analogue tuners. Any alignment, if at all, would probably on the embedded software side. This just my guess and should be taken as such.
