3. Yes, you can, but if you attach audio, the phone will record sound for 2 minutes (not attach ringtones that available in both phone memory and SD card). The same like videos, if you attach video, the phone will record video (not attach video file available in both phone memory and SD card)

One of my client mailed a zip file contains a few pdf documents in mail when i was away from office, I downloaded it using internet Explorer but after download i don't know where it was gone. I can't find my downloaded file anywhere in my phone and can't open it coz i can't locate the file anywhere in my phone, It gone to an unknown space and no longer accessible. i downloaded an application from windows store called Archiver, but it says it can't open zip files from browser or mail coz of windows phone OS limitations and can't open files from phone memory. At last i went to a internet cafe just for this simple task. This phone causing wastage of time and money most times

The list of apps in vertical view showed the alphabet for each apps were gone. On Sep 21, 2013 and Sep 22, 2013 my phone restarted by itseld again. Finally I did hard reset and removed my SD card (no class), till now it works fine, good.
I still like Androd, it gave me satisfy when I was using Galaxy Ace 2 (Gingerbread). Many apps are better than Windows Phone. What the good from Android is file manager, with it I almost don't need PC. Now comparing to Windows Phone, if I would like to say, I doubt Windows Phone is called smartphone. All functions should be done using computer, is it called smartphone? Smartphone must can do something without need of PC or just a little for supporting some function, and my opinion Android is the right smartphone.
My fav mob after Motorola x5 and Nokia supernova 7210...Those are the mobiles i had for Months.Other mobiles i ll sell in a month.After that Nokia Lumia 520 is the longest i am having.I hesitated much in going for windows mobile.But my friend suggested to go as I ll sell it in a month.But since its my first windows mobile it was like an adventure to use.On using i liked the mobile much.When i bought i was worries not having FM.But now due to OS update it is made available.Anyway its a cool mobile.
NikiWP, 26 Sep 2013Not sure for the apps sending to another Windows Phone. Me too. I have a plan to switch bac... moreI don't understand why its happening to your phone...i have been using the phone for past 4months..i rarely got a restart if i am right its about 3 times..after updated to amber no lags or restats yet..battery performance increased..feels much more smoother..i don't think even 1gb droids give you this performance..their are complaints on xperia m about restarting..more features are coming up with following updates..think before you go for droids...
W.a.t.i, 26 Sep 2013How much file size is the amber update ?/ anyone ?? Can i update by pc ?? You will need nokia software updater software the file size of amber is quite big you will need wifi if you updating directly from phone. Go to nokia care it would be nice
does anyone know whether this phone has a alphanumeric keyboard (normal keypad) as in other nokia phones to write messages? I can find only QWERTY keypad in this. This phone is not user friendly, too complicated.

a dual sim version will dominate the market in india
this phone has good features for a very good price, a android device in similar price range can not compare to this great device, 520 and 720 are the best value devices, they will not disappoint you
