Pol, 08 May 2013Does this have wifi tethering? Just go to settings tap on internet sharing and enjoy. If not works make sure data connection is on in mobile network option.
Hey friends nokia lumia 520 has many problems as usual in nokia phones:
1.battery backup is not good.hardly last for 1 day with normal use.
2.heating problem during browsing or streaming videos
3.windows 8 OS (its not good for phones it is meant for tablets & laptops) as everybody knows that anroid is best....
4.no flashlight with camera
5.No live tv option means u will miss ur favourite shows when u r outside.....
So decision is in ur hands anroid or WP 8........

arman, 09 May 2013Dear, heating is normal for every smartphone especially if you are browsing the netAny device does not heats-up this much.
In call detail you can't find from which no. call came if you have saved two numbers for one person. In call detail you will not find call duration. Very strange. You will not find detail of any file like file name, file size, file type etc. Even You can not change file name. Whether it is audio, vidio or photo. Very strange.
Device heats-up very fast when you uses net or play games, even on charging.

I have been using this phone for two weeks now, here is my review...i read many reviews before buying this,i found it to be good,but Iam bit disappointed now..
1. No one mentioned that we can't download songs or videos from IE... Yes we can download them in UC browser,but it doesn't work in background.. So,it's not really multitasking.
2. IE doesn't give full html 5 support, some sites doesn't work properly,eg. Iplfantasy, I can't make transfers.
3. I can't change volume for songs downloaded from Nokia music... Now that's strange but i can't.
4. You can't save login details in IE,it's quite frustrating to type it every time.
5. I don't have problems with Windows app store,but 1 app i miss is sbi freedom.
now some good things...
1. User interface...it's too good.
2. OS is smooth,no hanging problems.
3. Good camera in this range.
i have nokia 5233 which is 2g. and i want 3g smartphone. Is lumia 520 gives best smartphone experience under 10k comare to samsung android?
Because my need is follows;
Smooth touch interface
Grt web experience in 3g
Grt and smooth ui
Ability to play minimum 720p video.
This phone sells out everywhere because it's a steal at this price. No other phone performs as well this one in this price range.
Anonymous, 08 May 2013Download any music software from market. Y confuse? Buy Sony headset, don't buy other headset. Unfortunately Music softwares (with equalizer) not available in market. Video player also not available for Lumia 520.
