    check music and you should see f.m radio, if you don't see it than your phone doesn't support it due to the way it was designed.
    I have it, and like I said I had to download it, its a 3rd party add filled app I had to download to use a feature that is already on the phone. My G2 and HTC One doesn't need a 3rd party app. It would be like having to download an app to make the camera or SMS work.

    What phone do you have? radio is available since Amber update for phones with the necesary hardware. 620 (i don't know wich others) don't have FM Receiver.

    as many have said....custom SOUND profiles...it's my main problem, there are many situations where i have to go on every app (8.1) and mute every one of them(btw, i noticed that the tickbox that was in wp8.0 it's now gone),have tried a lot of setting includin battery saver and leaving some apps in the background...and...while posting my request in the windows phone user voice...many results with my 'wanted feature' had appeared...it MS could gather all the votes for all the similar requests for the USER(custom)PROFILES(the 'sounds' is that i'm most interested in)...i bet it would make an impressive number...for instance...i saw...a lot of votes...for 'Cortana in Vietnamese" ...very good...i wish them luck...but it's just ONE request that gathers all the posts....and here i found at least 5000,each with tens of votes,(not all of them...anyway)....pretty incredible do you think? :))) i think if MS would make changes strictly on the number of votes...we all would have Cortana in 'martian' language or something...just kidding.... i know about inner circle but i think it's a little to messy and not so a 'windows phone' feature IMO,it looks like the tricky Android was messing around with Cortana in the 'developement process'' :)) how 'bout that ...an affait between Android and Cortana...hitting all gadged sites :) i promise i'll try not to make jokes..aaa....here goes...
    I gave all my votes to the guy who wanted profiles like in the old nokia phones :))) honestly :)....and IT'S NOT my request,if you're thinking about that :))),i didn't bother to write something that was already written :) i just want the functionality of a phone in the first place,at least 1 day battery,reliable notification functionality..and then, comes the 'media...wallpapers' thing IMHO. Thx for reading

    The dialer sucks. No smart dial. The SMS app has no customizations whatsoever. Really regretting buying this obsolete 1520. It's a huge step backwards.

    That's why you have to buy entry level phones like Lucia 520 ND test wp rather than buying expensive phones like lumia 1520.

    I'm probably gonna end up selling it if I can't get into it. At least I'll have a note 3 to fall back on.

    videocall network should be implemented, Skype, Viber or other applications like this have internet and does anyone have these applications installed. Why will not implement this function, all phones from Nokia for example. N70, nokia 5800 or many other phones have this feature included.

    I don't understand what you mean by 5 screens. You can already get to the lock screen, start screen, etc., what's the problem. As for there only being 2 screens, that's something that I love about WP over other platforms. The app list is easy to get to and yet is organized and easy to get to what you want. The start screen feels much better having it be one screen, since it feels smoother just swiping through one page rather than you flipping through various pages.

    I also don't understand what you mean by seeing the actual lock screen. When your phone is locked, you can look at it all you want, what's the problem?

    I haven't gotten the WP8.1 developer preview yet, so I don't know how many of these have been addressed, but these are what I want.

    1. Automatic updates. Extremely useful and saves a lot of time.
    2. The ability to delete apps from your app list. This is a fantastic feature of Android that iOS (and WP 8 too) don't have that really helps you organize your apps. When you download an app, there's a list that memorizes all of the apps youve downloaded. However, what if you were trying out a free app and it wasn't very good? Well, instead of leaving it there to fill up the list for no reason, you can remove it from the list. It keeps it nice and clean and really helps when re downloading apps to a new device.
    3. More Data stuff. I'm on AT&T and my phone has a problem where it keeps using data even if it's in my wifi network in my house. It detects it, but continues to use data (I'm guessing it's a bug, but it really needs to be fixed). Also, AT&T has blocked Data Sense, so MS should make it available to everyone.
    4. A music locker. Android and iOS have Amazon Cloud Player and Google Play Music, so WP should have their own equivalent (just add it into Xbox Music). This is extremely useful on Android and iOS since you can access your music anywhere, and with MS's large number of devices, this should be even better. MS, just add it in exactly how it in on GPM, by number of songs, not the size of the songs. The one thing that GPM doesn't too very well is that it's song editing (as in the information you can put for songs, like Artist and stuff) is very limited. No "set as compilation album" or album artist or any of that. If MS can pull this off, it'll be one less reason to stick with iOS or Android.
    5. Apps that update at the same time as on other platforms. Sure, WP has Twitter and Facebook and stuff, but a lot of the time the WP version is far behind the version on Android or iOS. If we're a little behind, no problem, that's how it is on Android vs iOS. However, we're usually far behind, so that needs to get fixed.
    6. Other devices (IDK how else to say it). One of the big things that MS needs to have is their own "Nexus" style device, a Windows Phone that shows off the best of the platform and is affordable at the same time (Android has a lot of these devices and WP needs them too. Seriously, if the Lumia 920, a flagship from 2012, costs the same as the OnePlus One, a flagship from... now, who would go for the Lumia 920?). MS should also have a "professional" style device (maybe a Surface phone?) that matches the serious and industrial design that BlackBerry fans love to convince BB fans to come to WP.
    7. Some other small extras that IDK where to put. Allowing OEMs to make devices with the latest and greatest specs without needing a software update, less carrier tinkering, full game streaming Wii U or PS4 style from Xbox One to a Windows device, USB OTG, more devices with Micro SD cards, and more user customization (as in letting them choose the default web browser and photo app or letting them make their own lock screen theme things) are things I'd like.

    Besides that, many of my complaints have been fixed or will be fixed. Multi platform apps (one purchase for all platforms), notification center, Cortana, more customization, better keyboard, etc. have all been added and the "app problem" is slowly being fixed. Really what MS needs is to create it's own identity, to have that one thing that they do really well to give them an edge over the competition. Blackberry's niche was communication, Android's was powerful devices and customization, and iOS's was apps and ease of use. WP does all of those pretty well, but it needs to have something that one feature that no one has done before and everyone wants. Once MS has that, users will start coming.

    I know you read the headline and think, I'm some kind of hater or that I've never tried Windows Phone. I've tried them all and actually have a 1020, 925, 8X, the last 2 bought for a combined $225 before WP8.1 was announced and on special.

    Ask yourself, Why would anyone try out Windows Phone? Why?

    - To miss notifications?
    - To have the worst Skype Experience on any platform?
    - To not be able to toggle data on the notification center (Come on, how easy is that, lol, fail)
    - To use an app, go to a second app and then try to return to the prior app and get hit with "resuming" . Why? It's not like I opened other apps, why does it need to resume, did it run out of ram? Do that on iOS/Android and you will be taken back "immediately".
    - To use the worst music app in mobile?
    - To eat through battery life like there's no tomorrow?
    - To have Cortana require GPS to work? Who does that?
    - To not be able to add an event that happens every 2 weeks in the calendar, like a paycheck, MS never heard of bi weekly events, lol.
    - To have the worst video app known to mobile?
    - So that when you are trying to watch a movie and the capacitive key lights stay on no matter what?

    There are so many others but all these should be easy for the "Largest software company in the world" to fix in order for regular consumers to jump on cause they have enjoyed a better experience elsewhere.

    Sure someone coming from a feature phone will not care but why provide the ****ty experience?

    I guarantee that Rudy will make a better Music app and not take so long to get a decent one out. I mean the app has been out for like 3 months on WP8 before the update, why so slow? I know why, they don't care and neither should we. I have canceled my Xbox music account and I hope others follow, cause let me get this straight, YOU WANT ME TO PAY YOU AND IN TURN YOU PROVIDE A ****TY EXPERIENCE ON ALL PLATFORMS? what a bargain!!!

    Why did I write this? well simple, maybe someone from MS reads it, but that would make too mush sense for them to listen to customers. All they know how to say is "in the coming weeks", I know a week 3 years from today is also a coming week, isn't it?

    I will be going back to an iPhone in the mean time and I hope that others follow so that MS' Mobile ambitions dive a fast death. It's the only way to get them to realize how bad they are. No excuses, if Rudy can make great apps, there's no reason why they can't, when they obviously have more than 1 person on the team.

    Toy your previous point about selling the 1520 unlocked, I still don't think it would do all that well unless they borough that price into the $300-$400 range. Even then phones like the Nexus 5 aren't blockbuster hits in regards to sales.

    "What WP needs to succeed"

    I guess that depends of what you mean by succeed. If Microsoft want to get a massive market share like Android then they should unlock all the restrictions on the operating system and let the development community embrace it and enhance it.

    To my mind the biggest boost to Android's success has been through the development community taking each version and customizing it and rooting it and just generally hacking it about a bit. Most android users don't install these customized builds though, but the resulting buzz in the development world means that there are lots of developers out there who're keen to write top notch software for the Android platform.

    I guess the risk with that approach would be that malware might get onto the platform and Microsoft might miss out on some of their 30% cut for every transaction on the store, but in return they could boost their user base massively, which in return will increase the sale potential of the app store (which is the aim of the game anyway

    Maybe it's not the aim to be the most popular mobile OS and maybe they're trying to reach a smaller audience that are more discerning about software quality and security, so in which case it seems as though they are heading in the right direction. Blackberry have done (emphasis on have) very well targeting the Business market for many years, so maybe that's where Microsoft see the future of the Windows Phone Platform. It would make sense, as they have the office offering and all the enterprise security stuff from the windows back end.

    Either way I think Microsoft are reaching a crossroads where they need to decide what Windows Phone is for and where they want it to be. Ticking away at 3-10% of market share every year is all very well for a while, but it can't sustain itself forever

    Hello iPhone!
    While your rant is valid and some good points were raised, IF you decide to return to Windows be sure to test your number isn't locked to that iMessage...and if it is have fun, i've been dealing with it for two weeks and it blows. And the iTunes music player is crap on iOS7, have fun being tied to iTunes, Siri is by far much worse than Cortana ("Sorry, i cant do that for you right now"...get ready for this 40% of the time in areas with full data signal...its very heavy dependent on Apple servers, and even when available cries constantly), No data toggle in quick menu (airplane mode avaliable in both WP8.1 and iOS7) and at least wP8.1 is customizable and i hardly ever see this "Resuming..." especially when going back to an app that ive opened already on my 1020 is practically instant.

    All im saying is while 8.1 needs fixes, iOS7 is far from perfect...dont even get me started on the flaky Wifi signals and over-praised average camera on the 5S.

    well i do not know but the true thing is the resuming stuff i do not like that,should microsoft start to learn how to keep in background applications without put in suspension or pause also in IOS itunes is awful when comes in audio set up the equalizers make sounds so artificial the music even with the original earphones and just is not perfect OS , Android use a huge amount of resources and deal with app not responding close? in IOS lack of connectivity and stuck with i tunes to sync a folder with mp3 files.

    Also it would be an error that microsoft made full access to developers to improve would risk to malware and viruses to wp, and we could be using anti viruses which would suck battery like mad in fact many are switching to windows phone exactly by the strong security in their marketplace and just i think should microsoft start to survey us what we want and how would get better.

    2. for the keyboard to remember my email address (jeez) or at least give us snippet shortcuts
    3. audio controls in the notification center (can't stand having to hit the volume button)
    4. a few more independent volume controls for bluetooth etc.

    I'd be a happy camper with these.
