    Alright, I launched the FM radio app in Windows Phone 8.1 (the DP version). All I get is static. I swapped to a different set of earphones and same.

    I know the Icon is supposed to have FM Radio so am I doing something wrong. I've dialed through the entire spectrum and just snowy static. Not a hint of any broadcast. This is my first time launching FM Radio on my Icon since I've owned it.

    Not sure what happen with yours. But I can confirm that the FM radio app in 8.1 DP works fine on my 1520.

    yes, over the air FM. I used it on my 521 and it worked perfectly on that device (just tried it again this very second to verify).

    I guess I got a bad Icon. Should've checked that when I first bought it. I'm not going to spend a $50 deductible just for FM radio though...

    Just tried on my Icon and works fine... Did not even know it had that capability... bet my 928 did as well... I had two apps installed already one gave me only static and the other worked fine... I think they were built in apps from MS but not sure... The one that does not work can be un-installed but the other FM Radio app works fine and cannot be un-installed...

    I have the Icon and it works fine for me. I assume you have no problems receiving radio stations in your car and home using a regular FM radio.

    I've had an issue with only static, usually reseting the headphones while in the FM radio app fixes it.

    I've had that issue a few times, however turning my Icon off then back on quickly fixes the issue...

    Okay. so I launched the FM Radio app with the headphones already plugged in. All snowy static.

    I tried MobileVertex's tip (unplug headphones and plug them back in while already in the app). I completely lost all sound, including static. Changed volume, switched the speaker, etc. Nothing. Closed the app and relaunched it. Now I have FM Radio working!

    I guess the app is a little finicky. I'm guessing rebooting the phone like BB_Jay suggests would also work.

    Correct, and that is the reason I got a ICON, Nokia told me via their 800 number (recorded the chat) before release that the 928 HAD FM support....Long battle, long story...

    I still have a few sets of HTC headphones from when I had a Trophy (defective models, had 3 before getting one that worked great)....They work great on the ICON...but, my high end Sony ear buds work like crap for getting signal. So you need a set of headphones that are designed for an Antenna for the best results, unless your in a big city..

    Yep, it was the same for me here. The Demin update seems to have fixed it.
