    At this price point, the quality of this phone cannot be beaten. Nokia deserves a lot of credit for redefining this price-segment. Recommend this to anyone buying a cost-effective, first, or backup smartphone!

    Great design, love the colors and features. Everthing i would expect in a 300 dollar phone for a lot less. I have had iphone and Samsung phones. I decided to be different and since the reviews of the Lumia were all great I decided to go for it and get one. I love the Microsoft OS and all the feautures and apps that I am used to. I Highly recommend the phone and tell you that you can be confident in your purchase. Enjoy it! I do.

    I recently had an iphone but because of the insanely high contract plan, I had to get a prepaid phone, I researched numerous phones and plans. I found that tmobile had one of the best prepaid plans and I thought the windows phones looked really nice, so I got it. It has been the best purchase I have made in awhile, some things I love about this phone is that you can edit pictures right on the phone before I had to transfer pictures to my computer and edit there, it also has microsoft word, power point and excel, but as a college student what really comes in handy is the microsoft word, because I can easily open, edit or even type up documents on my phone and you can print them from it too or easily transfer to the computer to print, Another thing that I especially like is the fact you can easily transfer music to this phone whereas with the iphone you have to go through itunes. So, I would have to say windows phone is definitely better than the iphone and its cheaper. p.s. It takes better pictures too :)

    I bough this for my wife but after using it decided to get one for myself and replace my iphone4. Nokia has done such a good job. The style is very european and windows 8 is so easy to use. I have all the apps I can use and more. Go for this phone you will be happy.

    NOKIA LUMIA 521 The screen is very responsive and its very lightweight. Plus, it's very cute..... Love the selection of ring tones and backgrounds, as well. I am going to upgrade to a 64GB microSD, I plan to save lots of pics and data... The phone doesn't come with a lot of memory. Its a really nice phone...for everyday smartphone users.. If you play heavy duty games, you may want something else... I am so tired of my iPhone and expensive products to replace....$ 20 for a data cable. Bye, Bye Apple and Hello Nokia Lumia........

    • A. Yes, but you will need to have T-Mobile switch the SIM number over because this phone comes with/takes a mini-SIM card. The switchover was painless and free.

    • A. calling t-mobile and doing this was very easy, they let you do it every 6 months with no charge. You also can cut the larger SIM card if wanted to and use it in the 521, there are templates online for doing this, but since the phone comes with the new smaller SIM, may as well use it. Cheers.

    • A. Yes. In fact, all you need to do is move the SIM card from your current phone into the new phone. There should be nothing else that needs to be done -- your account is tied to the SIM card and not to the phone. You can even switch back and forth between the two phones, if for some reason you want to use your old phone for a time.

    • A. The Lumia 521 uses a micro-SIM card, so if your other phone uses that as well, just transfer the SIM cards and your good. If your phone has a different sized SIM card, you'll have to call T-Mobile to have the number transferred to the micro-SIM card in the Lumia 521.

    • A. No, it is sold for prepaid. You may use an existing t-mobile sim card (micro, not mini) or you can activate a new prepaid plan.

    • A. No contract needed. T-mobile has different month to month plans. I had a $50.00 plan that was very good.. Unlimited Text, Unlimited nation wide Voice, and unlimited Data... First 500 MB of that data was at 4G speed the rest will be 2G. I now have the Unlimited 4G plan (well worth it) at $70.00 month. You can take your phone to any T-mobile store or buy the kit from Walmart and do it from home. You may need to confirm if the phone from Walmort comes with a simcard kit, I don't know...I got mine from T-mobile. T-mobile sells the Nokia 521 for $200.00 but they give you a FREE $50.00 card and it comes with a FREE simcard kit to connect...comes out to $150.00.

    • A. No this is T-Mobile. They no longer have contracts. You can go Prepaid or go Monthly with this phone. I bought it as a Prepaid and called T-Mobile for a plan. It works out better for me to put my family on a plan. It depends how much you use it. However I am under no contract committment with them. I can stop at anytime.
