I have been using Nokia Lumia 520 from last 4 months and I can now list down the pros and cons of the Lumia Device.
1. 3G video call feature is not there in any Lumia device.
2. No Bluetooth or USB tethering is there, only wifi tethering is there which drains your battery quickly
3.when you have many messages (sms in your inbox),and you want to search for a specific message/word. You will have to look into each and every message as no search option is present.
4. Toast notification will stop appearing if you install more apps on your phone that uses toast notification feature like "we chat, whats up, Lync etc." (however this is solved by updating the software)
5. "facebook inbuilt chat" will have connectivity issues. (solved if WP update is installed)
6. issue of automatic switch off / on. If your sim is safeguarded with PIN, then the phone will remain switch off untill you notice it.
7. Cannot set your own ringtone apart from the list of ringtones provided in the handset. If you want to have your own ringtone then you will need to install app "Ringtone maker"
8. Video Formats like .mkv & .webl are not supported on Lumia.
9. No feature to prevent the screen from auto-rotation. This feature will now be available in another updates.
1. Offline maps for navigation.
2. Child lock
The update is totally worth it since we won't be getting glance screen from nokia anyway, so there is absolutely no point waiting for bittersweet shimmer to release.
Also hopefully after 6-8 months we can receive windows 8.1 update via developer edition while other devices will receive it after more than an year.

Shubhamdas2013, 15 Oct 2013No, I am using Mobile Network.You can check the box "Automatically download updates if my data settings allow it" in Settings->Phone Update. That might let you download on cellular connection, if not, connect to WIFI then download.
Is there a way to change Bluetooth Name..???
If yes ..then how...??
