  • I bought this to upgrade from my Lumia 710 on T-Mo since all the newer apps for WP are only coming to WP8. The phone itself is a nice size, a little bigger than what I had before, but not overly big like the more popular phones - it also has a solid build to it but still feels nice and light in your hands. It comes preloaded with many NOKIA exclusive apps, which help make the WP OS pretty awesome in my opinion - I'm much more likely to buy a NOKIA WP than a HTC now because of the exclusive apps. The 5MP Camera is good, supposedly it will be getting NOKIA's PUREVIEW technology to make the camera better via a software update, but it's more than enough for what I use it for. Speakerphone is good, works well for when I use it. Screen is responsive as are the side buttons which feel solid. I was lucky enough to nab one of these from big W for $130, which makes it even more of a great deal. $130 for a quality smartphone OFF-CONTRACT is awesome, which is why I almost saw no reason not to...

  • Don't Let Inexpensive Fool You - This Phone is Packed With Features Including WiFi Calling & Tethering
  • I thought about waiting on the Lumia 925, but after reading how much the Lumina 521 has to offer, I decided that since I tend to change phones about every 2 years, it made more sense to go with the phone that was lighter on my wallet. After finding that my local WalMart had one phone left, I snagged it and haven't regretted my purchase one bit.

    What I love about the phone:
    1. WiFi calling (set up instructions below) - calls are clear, but calls don't hand off to cellular network if you step outside of your WiFi range
    2. Tethering Capable (but additional T-Mobile fee)
    3. MicroSD slot (up to 64GB)
    4. Camera is touch adjustable
    5. Adjustable font size
    6. Ability to have a high contrast screen (for those with poor eyesight or someone who wants a cool looking screen)
    7. Transfer My Data App makes switching phones super easy - even transfers text messages
    8. All of the Nokia app collection for free (drive, music, photobeamer, yousendit,...

  • Don't Let Inexpensive Fool You - This Phone is Packed With Features Including WiFi Calling & Tethering

  • Great little phone, but battery/phone died after 4 days
  • I was able to fully use the handset for 4 days. I come from the Android platform and am an RF Engineer for 14 years working in wireless.

    The handset build quality is absolutely great for the price. The touch screen is great, the keyboard predictability also great. The way the phone handled day to day operation, for the price was also great. It is not a Lumia 9xx phone, it is an entry level Windows 8 phone. The camera is a basic camera, it did not take good pictures when my kid moved even slightly (there was blur). The screen in sunlight, is not as bright as I'd like. Once again, a great handset for the price. I confirmed wifi calling, it worked flawlessly. I had a major issue for the phone to allow me to create an outlook.com email address (needed to use their App store), it would not work and would return a hexadecimal error. To fix this, I reset the phone and tried again and it worked. (hahaha... a windows product that requires resets hmmm... but to be fair,...
