    Hi all, I've been looking at Lumia 520's lately because they're so inexpensive. One feature I'm really interested in is Nokia Mixradio, on the WP store they show the app needs data, location services and push notification services, now does anyone know if the app would still work over wifi if I never have a sim card inserted?

    I'd like to use It at home over wifi, and then download music to listen offline (even if I need MixRadio+)

    Thanks

    I didn't realize it needs push or location. But yes, it will work just over wifi. One of the biggest benefits of Mix Radio is that you can download mixes for offline use. Up to four offline mixes can be stored on your phone if you use a free account, or six if you pay the subscription, which I think is $3.99 a month, IIRC.

    If I turn data OFF on my Lumia but it's still connected to Wi-Fi and then open MixRadio it still plays music

    mixradio does work with wifi only. it requires connection to internet (anyhow) to download the mixes or songs or whatever.
    Lumia does comes with a free subscription to nokia music for six months. (at lease it does in India).

    u can very well enjoy even if u dont insert the SIM card at all. all u need is to connect to net through wifi.

    That's one of the main reason I'm looking at it, using wifi at home, but downloading mixes for my car.

    Thanks!
