This is a great deal for a solid mid/low-level smartphone. Looks very handsome with tons of bright color options. Tons of colorful accessories. Has great reviews, IMO way better than the android smartphones sold at this price point. The Lumia 521 is the lowest priced windows 8 smartphone yet. Solid phone as a first smartphone, for parents and Kids. A proper smartphone with very few compromises at this price.

Luckily Windows phone is not a processing or Memory hog like Android. So This should be pretty snappy still

Very interesting, and appealing. Are these typically on display in the T-Mobile stores? I would love to put my hands on one before deciding. I was getting ready to order a Blackberry Curve 9315, but was hesitating because of the now outdated OS, I was also considering one of the Windows 7.5 phones, but once again didn't want to put a couple hundred dollars into a phone that is already obsolete.

I currently have an Exhibit II 4G, which is OK, but like the Blackberry and Windows OS a lot better. If I can put my hands on one and it isn't too bulky, I think I will go with this one.

great for the WalMart-tmobile plan


Hey guys I got a great deal on steerage tickets for the Titanic!

Windows Phone 8 is great OS.

Adios Android sux knowing you.

Do I need a data plan or can I just use it for voice only prepaid plans; and use wifi for data needs.

You do not need a data plan. No contract..

Thanks, OP!

There is no color choice on HSN site. This phone has many cool colors...



It looks like that it does not come with Gorrila Glass.

guessing it is locked to T mobile OP?

T-Mobile will unlock the phone for free.

It should work with T-Mobile MVNO, like Ptel etc out of box.

If you look at the specs ( and all of the you tube videos of its announcement) the front of the phone is black but the back is white ( which is what is listed on the specs at HSN). The good thing is that the back's are swappable, you can buy a replacement back of a different color eventually. I dont know about the Gorilla glass.

I'm waiting for mine to come, im fine with white but might end up swapping it out later

We have seen some great windows phone apps in the last 30 days. Now, windows phone 8 has all the top apps. Cheers to Nokia and Wp8.

Thanks OP,


I was shopping for an entry level lumia to replace my 710. And f@cked if you did not just post a deal that rocks. Now to sell my lumia 710 and enjoy a larger screen for my sad old eyes.

Is this Pentaband? As in will it work on AT&T 3/4g? (not LTE)

Man, I wish it has a front facing camera even a tiny one!

You asked

This is a budget phone. They try to minimize the cost and yet make a quite capable phone. When you pay $150, and not $650 for a phone, you need to have some sacrifice.

had anyone tried to use this on StraightTalk? thx in advance!

Too early, few people except beta testers have this.

Is there an app for windows 8 phones that will work with a q-see dvr? I'm still searching around.



hmm.. Black only from HSN? Actually, it could be any color from HSN? You can't pick a color.

Now sold out!

I went for the Nokia 521 after reading about it here and thought I'd give some feedback. I do not have any previous smartphone experience, but I've enjoyed the added features this phone brings. I also do not have a data plan, as I'm stingy and don't feel like I need it with Wifi at work and home. This did lead to a problem of my own design.

For the first month after I got the phone, I was unable to send or receive picture messages. After a lengthy call to T-Mobile, that problem has been solved. Slightly paranoid of the possibility of using unpurchased data, I turned the off the data connection on the phone. I figured that it would help prevent accidental browsing. Unknowingly, this disabled my ability to send and receive picture messages. Since that problem has been fixed, I have had no complaints.
