Picked up this little phone at Target to work as a second phone line for working from home. Didn't want to give customers my real mobile number. Had an extra line I was not using as part of the 4 lines for $100 thru T-Mobile. Loaded all the basic stuff just fine. No, it will not load apps from Google Play but I was able to get my gmail account synced just fine. Really surprised myself when I found an app called Tubecast (I am a big fan of Chromecasting). Was able to Chromecast from my local network on MP4 files and also able to cast anything that I could search for within the Tubecast app. Had to purchase a $30 pay as you go card but that can be applied to my T-Mobile account balance with a quick stop in a store. So, net amount paid for the phone of $40 and it is just fine for a side phone to slip in my pocket. My real phone is a Note 3 which is great but can be a monster of a thing to carry around.

I was given this phone as a gift. My old phone did not have much only texts and calls. I was surprised that as soon as I had put the sim card in and started to set the phone up my rexts started coming through with the amount of internet charges i had used. Up to £50. This was a shock now I wish I had stayed with my old phone.
subodhkr., 23 Dec 2014i had faced similar problem. Try to restart mobile after switching-on and wait for few second... moreSounds like a dud, never had any sim issues. What you guys think about upgrading to 630?, is it worthwhile, 530 seems to do mostly ok.
CHANDAN, 28 Nov 2014how to make internet connection on it?? Go to settings bro click data connection and switch on
Roony, 08 Dec 2014Is that a flash camera? Please tell me. I want to buy itNo flash bro and front camera ðŸ“· but camera is just awesome
This is a really cool phone very cheap and good I know how some of you will feel about getting a cheap phone but this is excellent I would recommend it to anyone especially for kids its not a basic phone if you think. Instagram,Whatsapp and other things like facebook are also included but it is a Windows phone 8 so don't expect it to be like an android.
i uses lumia 530 dual sim..is de best fone ever..but battery drains early..
logan appling., 24 Dec 2014do this phone have every store my favorte phone how much is costs. County depend. Here 530 can find almaost all shops price between 75$-105$

mag c, 24 Dec 2014Same heredo this phone have every store my favorte phone how much is costs.
530 is a good phone.but i find only one problem with it which is its very limited office . In android there are plenty of office suite which helps u to create word documents as if they are created on a windows desktop. But in 530 u only wish to view a document but not try to create a document...features of adding different style and fonts is not there. A very sneek feature of creating word document is given which is of no use and hello ??? creating powerpoint slides is also missing... And one big negative point is that there are no office suites present on the windows store
Other than the windows preloaded office...in android we have applications like kingsoft, quick office, polaris suite which are awesome and far better than this preloaded windows office
