I'm having an issue with the music player on this phone, which takes over when the music is playing, meening that the calls, alarm, notifications become silent. I lost a lot of calls that way, because they only show up on the screen and the sound is off. So far I haven't found the settings to change this, could anyone help?

horrible choice for me. No cell service at home and can't forward calls to the house like my simple to use old phone. Personalizing screen does not work. Battery always going dead.

Impossible to use, especially after few months.
Windows 8.1 update created even more issues.
Obviously 8.1 does not run well on low end hardware.
I regret updating it because now there is almost no way to go back to 8.0

Microsoft:
Please release more stable low end phones that work without crushes and frozen pages.

LUMIA 1520 of course does not have any of the crush
Issues and freez issues but many people buy cheap contract free Lumia phones like 520 and will have a bad reputation about windows phone after using 520

I would like to know why do you need to open a Microsoft account in order to download any applications on this phone?

I've used this phone for 2 yrs and was still going strong until 2 days ago that it got stolen. Granted, it may have had some ups and downs along the way like the volume buttons getting spoiled, but the simple solution to this is to get a latex cover for it... It was really the best phone for me
