We make a theoretical study of the charge and forwardbackward pion asymmetries in the e+e > pi+ pi gamma process on and off the phi resonance energy. These observables are rather sensitive to the inner details of the theoretical models to describe the reaction. In addition to the standard implementation of the initial state radiation (ISR) and the Bremsstrahlung contribution to the final state radiation (FSR), we use the techniques of the chiral unitary approach to evaluate the contribution from the mechanisms of phi decay into pi+pigamma. This contribution involves the implementation of final state interaction from direct chiral loops, the exchange of vector and axialvector resonances and the final state interaction through the consideration of the mesonmeson unitarized amplitudes, which where found important in a previous work describing the phi > pi pi gamma. We find a good reproduction of the experimental data from KLOE for the forwardbackward asymmetry, both at the phi peak and away from it. We also make predictions for the angular distributions of the charge asymmetry and show that this observable is very sensitive to the chiral loops involved in phi radiative decay.
