Did you buy this yourself? I'm looking for a good phone for my daughter, and I need a decent review.

These have always been considered quality budget phones. I just wish the 521 would go on sale for this price so I could use it on Lycamobile.

  You can get the 520 unlocked for $10 at http://www.gsmunlockusa.com/ unless it has one of the difficult IMEIs.  But you won't get 1700 mhz band.

The 520 and the 521 are consistently the top-selling no-contract phones on Amazon month after month.

The 520 is for AT&T.  The 521 is for T-Mobile.

Amazon usually sells out quickly when they drop the price of the 520 to $50.

  Is this unlocking website reliable? Does this website also unlock T-Mobile Nokia 521? Thanks.

As I recollect, these phones 520/21 are the more difficult ones to unlock. I do not remember anyone being able to unlock them beside the carriers. I got the unlock code for my 521 through T-Mobile

Filler to get over $50 (free shipping over $50) -- 57 cents pencil erasers -- http://www.walmart.com/ip/Zebra-ZEB83211-M-301-M-401-Mechanical-...

I used one for a while. It is not a bad little phone. The Windows OS takes some getting used to especially when it comes to using it as a media player device. It was extremely difficult to set up playlists. It was a bit slow when using the internet, but a very usable little phone. For the price, I don't think you can beat it. Getting a 4G phone for $50 is a good deal.

Does this phone have microphone to text function like my Android? Love that feature as typing on the small keyboard is a hassle.

rated:
Yes it does have voice to text for typing and is pretty awesome.

Really wish I had not read this.
Last week had to purchase a replacement phone. I was going from regular AT&T plan to Go Phone. Bought a SIM card from them online (mistake #1). When I received it, it was macro, not micro. But they were kind enough to include an adaptor. I used it (mistake #2). I could not get it inserted right and in the process of trying to get it out to reinsert it, a piece of the plastc broke off. Half of the adapter was stuck in and after repeated nudging I finally got it all out.
Ended up just reinserting the old SIM card and planned to go to AT&T the following day.
Unfortunately, the SIM card could not be recognized; I must have screwed up something while taking the adaptor off.

Went to AT&T. They ended up just giving me the micro-SIM, no need for the adaptor. But my fears were confirmed, the area that reads the SIM was broken.
Had to buy another phone. Ended up going to Best Buy - cost was $69.05 out the door. So in the process of trying to save money by going with a less expensive plan, I spent more. What a waste.
I should have just gone to the AT&T store in the first place.

That said, I have the 520 through AT&T (which I passed off to my son) and the 521 through TMobile. The only complaint I have at the moment is the TMobile 521 does not have Cortana. It's supposed to be available by the end of the year, SUPPOSEDLY. AT&T's 520 has it (with the 8.1 update, of course). Still, both are really good phones; I love them. Was a HUGE iPhone fan before but I've totally switched on that. These are nice, solid phones, glad I gave them a chance. Plus the price is really right, this is well worth the money.

Hi everyone, I have the Nokia 520 go phone and can't get to www.marketwatch.com to display desktop page. I don't have any problem with other web sites, just this one. There is a mobil app for it, but I get used to the full desktop page. Please let me know if you have a way to do it. Thank you.
