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........

Never got to use
I was asked to enter my address before ordering to see if coverage was available in my area. I was told yes the service was available at my address so I went ahead and ordered the phone online as a birthday gift for my daughter. Shipping was fast and activation was simple but sadly after activating the phone and powering it on a no service signal popped up. Called customer service and they were absolutely terrible to deal with! No help at all. I had to return it. Very disappointing experience for both myself and my daughter.

Better than the iphone....

Verified purchase

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 :)

Great phone!

Verified purchase

I bought this phone for myself after my son got one. He had an iPhone and it would not work with our new plan so we had to find something affordable for him. The price was perfect, under $150. He loves this phone more than his iPhone! He loves the Windows interface and Nokia music app for getting the latest music. Playing with his phone and all the features convinced me to upgrade my old phone as well. I have been very pleased with it. I use it for email, texting, and looking things up on the web as well as for calls. It is fast and reliable and the calls are clear. The camera is also excellant matching my regular digital camera in quality. It has helped more than once when I needed a quick answer to a question from airline flight status to store hours. In truth, I never saw the need for all the extras on a phone, but I have fallen in love with this one. It takes a micro SD for expanding memory for photos and music. If you are looking for a smartphone that can keep up with the latest expensive phones without the high price, this is it!

Great Cell Phone

Verified purchase

I read reviews and I rely on customer feed back. Everyone was right about this phone. I would say I am not electronic savy and I enjoy this phone very much. It is very easy for me to use and there are mulitple ways to get to one place and I personally like that. I don't know much about space or function. All I know is it does what I need it to and it works very well. I have no problem with reception. I live in Whittier, Ca. It takes great pictures, i think the camera is a little slow but then again I could be doing something wrong. Like I said before, I am not very "electronic". The battery lasts me two and half days. I really like that. I like to text message, before I had a key board and I wonderdered if I would like the touch screen key pad, Well I DO. the great thing about this phone is that if offers words. It is used to how I txt and words I use all the time pop up so txting is much faster. I think anyone would be happy with this phone. I know I am. My phone before was an Android, the first one. I really hold onto my phones.

a great phone

Verified purchase

This is my first smart phone, and I really love it. I haven't had any kind of android device before, so I was really happy to have the option of a Windows phone. I have actually been running it for about a week exclusively on wifi since I still have some minutes left on my old prepaid phone. Without cellular service, I can still use all apps and the camera which has been fun. I will be activating it using the $30/month prepay option- 100 talk minutes, unlimited text and web. This is not really advertised by T-Mobile but it is available. The 5 mp camera leaves a little to be desired but only as in more mps. The most annoying thing is trying to find a case in an actual store that I can see before I buy- I ended up ordering one from Amazon for $4- hopefully it fits! Overall, I am very happy with this phone and highly recommend it for someone who prefers a prepay plan.

1. Yes if you port your number over to this phone before you close your other cell phone number account. Or...if you already have an account with T-Mobile they will just hook up your new sim card to your number.

3. Yes, as long as the number you wish to transfer is eligible, you can transfer that number to your new phone. You can transfer your existing mobile number, your landline number, or your current T-Mobile number to your No Annual Contract plan during the activation process. You’ll need your phone number, along with your account number and the PIN or password to complete the transfer.

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.
