This phone overal is a decent cheap phone. And the issues are immediate. Phone does not connect to the Internet. Very few of the apps on the apple and android devices are on the Windows platform. The battery is very bad, and the overall processor is horrid. The graphics are pretty bad. Overall, if you are looking for a cheap phone, please do not buy any Windows device, buy an Android or Apple, even Apple's aren't cheap.
I have forgot my Microsoft mail account password If any one suggest what to do...
Alikh, 12 Feb 2016Change your password through webI had a similar issue where i changed my password from web and yet this was not working. Then I realized my Live mail id was enabled for two way security. Once I removed that settings and changed my password from Web and then log in to device .. this issue resolved and I was able to start get downloads . Hope this small thing may help some-one in need.
Shit don't buy. Awful battery life, awful display, awful speed. Won't let you use anything other than IE with Bing as default search engine (pretty sure). Very slow can't do simple tasks browsing the web is extremely difficult. The windows store is the worst and it has the smallest array of apps I have seen of any platform. Get a cheap phone that runs android it is much more worth it.

However it will not allow me to without signing into live.com account of which i do not have all the information and have never used it for emails or downloaded any apps on it. How can I change this to get access to download whatsapp as a free app

Great phone. Using for 3 years. Except screen brightness and flash no other negatives.
Compact size, capacitive buttons, camera button, replaceable battery, expandable memory still hard to find good cheap phone like this.
Dropped several times from 4-5 feet and had no issues. My friend who laughed at me when I bought this has replaced his android mobile thrice during these years. Battery is still adequate. Hope it can stand another year. Wishes to all fellow 520 owners.

Most of these phones suddenly failing with error "Unable to find a bootable option. press any key to shutdown".
That's it. one can throw their phone into dust bin because repair cost for this issue is more than 3K as they need to replace motherboard to fix this.
Worst ever experience with Microsoft and Nokia. I could see its happening for most of the Lumia phones...........
