Sansa E270 -- where is my radio?



I bought an Sansa E270 yesterday. So far very happy with it: seems robust, massive flash storage, decent SQ, clean UI.

However, I am certain that this unit is supposed to have an FM tuner built-in -- in deed the onboard demo movie even shows it listed in the menu [also can see icon in picture on the box, in the user guide]. In fact reference to the FM tuner is everywhere except in the menu on my unit!!!!!

Has anyone else had this problem? Could it have been deactivated somehow? A problem with the firmware, perhaps [I have got v01.00.12E].

I am awaiting a response from Sandisk customer support, but thought I'd try you guys as well.

Much obliged,
