Re: poor FM reception

The Phone must be on.
The SIM card must be a valid one.
The station you listen to and the network operator you use, must support the service.
The headset or enhancement needs to be attached to your phone. for the FM radio to function properly, it's an aerial as well as a headset.
Therefor if you are in a poor reception area for making/receiving calls it will also affect the radio signal.

Samsung phone won't stay connected to 3g why

Either you are in a poor reception area, or you have gsm only connected or your aerial on the phone is not making a proper connection due to recent water ingress or attempted dismantling.
you should be able to check 3G reception for your area over the Internet google 3G your location to ascertain if you get good coverage, if you do then it's probably the phone carrier settings, if they are correct then I would consider physical connection of aerial in is possible to add an aerial foil to improve reception in some phones or change carrier.
