FM receiver to be activated on the Nokia Lumia 520

Back in March, we told you that the GDR2 update would be bring FM Radio to Windows Phone handsets led by the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820; a chat session with Nokia support staff indicates that the Nokia Lumia 520 will have an FM radio following a software update and while the other Lumia models weren't mentioned, it's a good bet that they will be included...

They kinda pioneered the fm radio onto phones with the Nokia 8310 so it's ironic to see it being neglected, good to see they haven't forgotten such a useful feature imo.

Nokia didn't neglect it. Its just that the WP8 platform, for now, doesn't recognize the FM hardware in the device. Thats why this update is being rolled out to all WP8 devices, including HTC, Samsung and Huawei. So guess they will all support it.

any information, when and where the FM receiver can be activated or updated into my Lumia 520? Any link to Microsoft of Nokia marketplace?
Otherwise a good phone but as internet connection seems to be unstable for us, the "traditional" FM radio is a must for us.
