good phone.i'm using this phone from june 30.nice phone,but it is poor battery backup even i turn off data connection,And it ask for debit card and credit card for downloading apps i dont have it soo plzz sum 1 help me.
Selly, 10 Jul 2013I did off the data connection but there was no improvement. Moreover if i off the data connect... moreIts so simple. If you have internet plan, then turn on data connection anf if you don't have plan then turn it off. and if still your Balance reducing then call your Sim operator, may be some service would be activated. because without data connection your phone never use internet. I am using L520 and I hven't face this problem.
one more thing you can't use internet if you turned off data conn because you turned off it. why you turned off, because you hven't data plan, then why you try to connect internet. you said my balance reducing. thats means u hvn't data plan. so some users advice you to turn off data conn., then you say it still reducing and i can't connect to internet. but why you connect to internet if you don't hve data plan? and one more thing check your internet settings too.

huseiya, 09 Jul 2013ok,which best option here: lumia 520 or lg optimus l7 2?(not dual)....reply plz,thanks in advance.Depends on your preference. If you like file manager, many apps, games, then you go for Optimus L7 II (I read several comments about it, they said good). But, if you don't mind with no file manager, want cheap price but good hardware, don't like malware, you can choose Lumia 520.

Do you know Office 365 in Office of Lumia 520? I had set up, it gave me some email accounts, I chose one, had created, it pin to start itself with live tiles email on the bottom like I create email from inbox. What was different?
Selly, 09 Jul 2013I love my phone. But my phone credit keeps on reducing though no app is running in background.... moreturn off the data connection. this wont affect your call or messages. system often syncs MS ID for your sake, for you to get contacts backup. and if the date and time are set automatically, it keeps updating to be sure that the time is perfect; choice is yours

2. Poor battery back up. Lasts hardly one day. ==> this depends on usage, am getting two days effortlessly(brightness always low,2g permanently on, 3g or wifi only for video streaming, approx 5hrs 2g calls daily, frequent whatsapp and wechat user along with facebook)
3. No pc suite like software, hence the phones functions cannot be accessed by pc.
u can get a windows phone app in windowsphone.com that suits any windows pc of any os version
I purchased Nokia Lumia 520 on 29th June 2013. When i really start using it i found it is getting hang for every application except calling and sms. Even power off button dose not work at that time and need to took off its battery. Camera button is also major problem and did not work.
Finally my phone is with Nokia Care and they are telling if they would solve it then its ok i can get it in 3 days otherwise this phone will go to their main office.
Please don't buy Nokia Lumia 520.
