I bought my Nokia Lumia 520 recently. After downloading windows app on my laptop and connecting my phone via USB. I can't view anything on it. The information on the app is "windows phone locked", "Unlock your phone to view what's on it." What can I do to unlock it? Otherwise this a good phone.
So many suggestion ideas at www.windowsphone.com, waiting for GDR2, hope this update satisfy me better.

Yes,I love my nokia Lumia 520 but what got stuck into my nerves is is it my cell only to be heated or its common issue?share ur experience pals
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2013i'm thinking to buy this phn,bt confused to decide whether i should go for a windows os or for... moreDude
let me tell u if ur budget is more than 22k then definatly go for android..
n sony xperia sp is most recomended for u..
samsung is totaly bogus company.. galaxy grand is very bad experience..
only issue here with os..
android and wp8..
wp8 is similar to ios(no file manager n other thngs) Bt in real smartphn file manager is nt present..
bt all apple users r happy coz lot of apps r availble in apple store.. ppl spent 40-45k to apple product bt ppls r happy wt ios..
nw nokia launches low end wp8 phones n all android ppl cme to try wp8 bt for ur kind info wp8 is still new.. android n ios r very old os.. so developers develope these two os in ths long period bt wp8 is only 8 months old and os still in improvment condition..
as i told u wp8 phones get all future updates.. means microsoft adds all thngs step by step.. coz development takes time..
in development wp8 is fastest growing os..
n ms working hard on it..
only android users r complaining here coz android is wel developed os in last 7yr.. bt every1 knws to run android fluently 2gb ram n quad core chipset is required which is vry expensive..
Yes dude...lumia 520 is the better of phones in this budget and I love it too...but what make me worried is if it is only my cell to get heated?
or its common issue? Playing games worsen the heat making uncomfortable to hold in fingers....if this problem is solved....lumia 520 would have been best of phones...still for me..

yes you can play HD videos in Nokia lumia 520, 720p and 1080p both can be played. Since it has dual core processor and 512mb ram to run them its more than enough
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2013i'm thinking to buy this phn,bt confused to decide whether i should go for a windows os or for... moreActually that's depends on yourself, what your preference is. I myself still love Android smartphone, from my experience using Galaxy Ace 2, I was satisfy with it. Games are so much available for free, many apps, WhatsApp is more update than WhatsApp in Windows Phone. The plus in Android is the file manager, I can easy manage files without PC.
I buy Nokia Lumia 520 cause the price is affordable, and I got dual core 1 GHz processor and GPU Adreno 305. While Android, I would like to buy branded with 1 GB RAM and that's is still expensive for me.
Here I would like to be neutral, Android for me is easy managing files so suitable for people who don't have PC. While Windows Phone is rather difficult cause related to security and suitable for people who have PC.

Folks this is my review of this Lumia 520 phone after using it extensively for two months.
I bought this phone because of the tag "Nokia" but no way Nokia let me down. I'm a regular follower of this lumia 520 thread in gsmarena.com. I hav read almost all the opinions. Generally many people are happy with this phone, some are unhappy for buying this phone, but not because of Nokia, because of windows phone 8.
Let me first tell the cons of this phone
*it has very less number of apps compared to the android and ios.
*no complete file manager yet.
*good games are paid in windows store.
*Can't able to record the call.
*Music app is there but not user friendly.
*some buggy problems like "phone hangs" "screen black out"
*no support for .flv, .mkv
*unable to download .mp3 files directly
*less optimization option
*ever growing others memory
*No notification bar
First i'll justify most of the above cons are not really a bad thing.
*yes it has very less number of apps. But the fact is all the apps are certified by the Microsoft before it comes to the store. Apps in in windows store are in quality rather than quantity. Android store has huge number of apps. But as the world knows the apps there are not quality enough and most of them are Malware. But few apps in android are exceptional. i agree. On the other hand, ios apps are really great. they are similar to Microsoft, they certify the apps before they put up the app in their store. So the real competition is between iOS and Windows. In real time the fastest growing app store is Windows store. Daily around 300 new quality apps are coming up in Windows store. Rate of growth of other store like Android and iOS is really very very less.So less number of apps is not really a issue. soon this ecosystem will grow bigger than their competitor.
*File manager is not necessary. Even the iPhone doesn't have file manager. But more than 300 million iPhone ppl all around the world are happy. Ppl who barely switched from android to windows feel this file manager is necessary. eventually even andriod users feel it is not necessary.
*yup good games are paid in Windows store, but the real fact is only few like angry birds, fruit ninja, cut the rope are paid. But games like temple run are free. One important fact is that even paid apps can be tried for free with limitations. Even android doesn't provide any option to try the paid games. even the games cost around Rs.500 can be tried absolutely free. And one more thing there are many other free addictive games are available exclusively for windows store which doesn't even exist in android or iOS store(Eg-FIFA13). Another intersting fact is that there are lots of addictive games exclusively for Nokia Lumia user, were other windows phone users can't enjoy.
*Music app is there but not user friendly. Listen friends Nokia music is one of the best music app currently available. They are giving regular updates to their apps. Try this Nokia music app, you will never regret. There is some bug report in that app currently. But Nokia assured giving regular updates to their apps. So music app is not really a big issue.
*Phone gets heated near the camera. Lets sort out this problem. Try updating ur software. Listen guys What can you xpect frm a 10k phone, with dual core processor. Nothing is perfect in this world. Even iPhone 4s had the heating issue. But eventually they sort out heating issue in iPhone 5 which costs around 40k. So for this price you cannot expect all the best features of all better phones in this world.
*No support for .flv .mkv files. please note this, there is an offical statement fom VLC player, that they are going to launch their VLC player very soon to Windows store.
*to download .mp3 files pls download "MP3 downloader" app from the store which works completely fine for free of cost.
*Less personal optimization. Ok. Here is another good news. Windows is going to launch the next update to their OS as windows phone 8.1, To know more just google this "Windows phone build 8.10.12112"In this hopefully you can have background picture for start screen.
*Biggest of all isuue is that ever growing othes memory storage space. Easy way to handle this. Just go the internet explorer clear history. you will get more than 200MB of space for sure (*condition: the internet explorer should be used as default browser for all browsing activities. clear this every month once)
*No notification bar. To me i don even consider this as an issue. because only to those lame Android users think notification bar is necessary. bt in live tiles you get more than a notification bar can give. you can read a text message in this live tile, You can get to know if there is any upadte to the app. You can get some additinal use of live tiles like instant weather report, football and cricket scores. Which is a impossible task in iPhone or android phone.
Now lets see what is specially about Nokia Lumia 520 and Windows phone 8.
* Price is 10k
* Dual core 1 Ghz processer, where no other brand gives these many features (Please don't compare this phone with some cheap chinese brand android phones)
* Integrated Microsoft Office 2013, where even iphone or high end android phone doesn't have access to the MS office.
* Most innovative and interesting mobile os ever. Android and iPhone have 18th century interface (LOL :-P)
* Most secure mobile OS ever.
* 4" screen with 233 ppi
* Most sold Lumia ever.
* Xbox integration, Another exclusive feature only windows phone gets this. None of the android or ios gets Xbox integration.
* people hub is the best place where you can integrate all the social network together at one place.
* Most easiest OS to attach the files and send mails.
* Fastest growing OS according to Forbes Inc.
So at last My point is For Rs. 10,000 Lumia 520 is the best Smart phone. Don't have second thought. Go for it.
I am happy to be a "LUMIAN"
