My Nokia Lumia 525 is hardly 1 yr old.Oflate it is seen that the phone service get switched off, indicating 'NO SERVISE" many times in a day. every time I have to switch off the mobile and restart it again after few minutes to get the phone service started. I have enquired with the service provider (Vodafone) and they deny any problem with the phone service and suggest that the problem is with the hand set. ANY SOLUTION , REMEDY, FOLKS?

My nokia x3-02 died and being a nokia die hard fan, I bought Lumia 525. Small and light, easy to carry in my pocket. It runs on Lumia Cyan when I bought it and a couple of days later, it got updated with Lumia Denim. So far the phone is working great. No lag. The only 3rd party apps I'm using is Whatsapp. And oh, I don't play games or watch movies on my phone. Using it for pure business. I watch movies on cable TV. And play games with my PSP. I take photo with my camera. So, yeah, I found this phone good enough for me.

I have lost my Lumia 525 last week. It has been a nice experience for one and a half year. It isn't the smart-phone should be your concern, it's the smart user. Here I share my experiences with Lumia 525 as a university student.
1. When making the decision to buy,I have surveyed quite extensively and this is the best for a low-end device in term if functionality, fluidity and affordability for a non-selfie student. Haha.
2. My colleagues use WhatsApp for daily messaging and group discussion, with OneDrive I can send a link to edit my document online via copy-pasting from (no direct sharing) messaging. However, if you're already lazy to write an assignment no one can help.ð
3. The search button is so useful. My lecturer always ask me to Google solve terms for the class but I 'Bing-ed' it for them. Haha. It's snappy and efficient especially with the swipe keyboard. Plus I use the Dictionary app so often when studying and I pin it at the top. Windows Phone rocks!
4. I do some designing on my laptop and then drag the file to OneDrive folder. After automatic syncing, I send it on WhatsApp. No cable needed.ð
5. My Bluetooth headphone seems more efficient to work with my phone rather than my laptop. I don't know why. I use the headphone while doing chores, using HERE Drive+ with driving mode and watching music performances and dramas.
6. There's so much more but let me end it early. All of the efficiency had been done without much hassle and lag!
7. If Microsoft wants to improve it further, make the battery big as hell so the user can turn on Location indefinitely and mobile broadband/Bluetooth extensively.

p/s: At first I was quite puzzled how can my cheap phone be stolen. Alas, the shiny orange cover and beautiful Start screen. Hahahaha. Feeling irrationally proud.
Sent from my new Lumia 640.

Lumia 525 is a good phone. But if you want to get better than it, then go for Lumia 730.
I used Lumia 525 for 8 months. It was good phone.
But now I am using Lumia 730 since February, 2015. It is an awesome phone.
