Coming from a user of Blackberry OS7... moreHow to pin radio to start screen: Open radio and pin ANY station to start (preferably your favorite one).
To pin a radio station to the start screen, press on the station and select "Pin to start". You can still navigate to other stations!
I also suggest you use RapDialer app.

Just got this today, intend to give it to my mum use.
Coming from a user of Blackberry OS7 and 10, the Win8 system have its plus and minuses.
It's easy to navigate, most of the apps, programs, settings are simplified. However, when it comes to detail setting, such as APN to access mobile data service, i couldn't find the detail setting. Shortcut creation is also not easy... for example, i want to create an immediate access to the dial pad, but no such setting allowed or available. The latest OS10 from BB lack of this as well, when compared to BB OS5. However, it's an instant access on numbers of SONY Android models as well as BB OS7 models.
Certainly, alot of folks here may suggest, or surprise why instant dial shortcuts is not created or encouraged. Well... different folks, different strokes. My mum, as with some other older folks, trusts what they written in their little portable paper phonebook, rather than advance tech gadgets. Haaa~~~
525 packs with a FM radio tuner. Yet... i can't create a short cut on the start screen such that my mum doesn't need to flip through pages to look for the function.
-the camera function, and the good quality of the photo capture leaves a good one compared to my OS10 BB Z10. I can at least set the ISO quality on this. However, same like Z10, seriously lacks of optional resolution setting. Post editing on the pictures captured is required such that it can be sent through limited sizing corporate emails or Hotmail.
-customizable icons on the start menu, can resize, but unlike some Android phones which can resize to personal preferred size.
-power efficiency... even if i set the phone connected to 2G network, it's power consumption is still higher than my BB9860 which packs a 3.7inch screen and 1280mah battery, compare to that of Lumia 525 with 4inch screen with 14++mah battery, and brightness set to auto. My BB Z10 have a very good battery life with 2G connection, with an average daily calls of 10mins average total per day, can last 3.5~4days without the need of plugging to the charger.
Competitive pricing, good camera, removable battery, and certain level of ease in customizing is adds couple of points to the phone.
However, mediocre battery capacity, high power consumption as well as not so silver age elders friendly customization, and limitation on camera settings add numbers of minuses.
Oh yeah... just to add... the bundled NOKIA phone earpiece is a total crap. Couldn't even beat Samsung and SONY Android phones' earpiece in sound quality when listening to radio broadcast in open area! Ditch the earpiece, which is only perhaps good on conversation calls.
