    Can I post info without registering? I believe I can if I do it as a question.

    DID YOU ALL KNOW THAT THAT LUMIA 520 IS NOW ON AMAZON FOR $30. FREE SHIPPING WITH PRIME. AMAZING !!!!!! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SAME DEAL CAN BE HAD DIRECTLY FROM MICROSOFT(THIS IS 99c cheaper ALSO WITH FREE SHIPPING).

    I can easily afford an iPhone. My kids have them. I much prefer the 520. $5 batteries (I can carry a spare). 64gb memory SD boost for ~$30. Throw the phone away with no regrets if the screen breaks (a new 520 is way cheaper than repairing an iPhone screen ;) ). Just the HERE+ GPS is worth $100 to me. I LOVED using it to motorscooter around Bali without needing a map. These won't last long at this price as the phone is being superceded -- I don't think they're making more. I've bought 6.

    No, it's not unlocked. It's an AT&T GoPhone, which can be used with regular AT&T services.

    You can also use it without services, connect to Wi-Fi, download maps, and use it as an inexpensive GPS unit using Here+. Or a nice MP3 player, whatever.

    I use the 520 for everyday use. Thought about grabbing one of these as a backup, but decided should something happen, I'm liable to spend extra and get an 830, or maybe a new 1030 later on. Heck, I'll probably do that before something happens to the 520, so I can keep the 520 as my backup. :)

    Good looking out. Bob. Love your enthusiasm.

    I got hooked on a 521 (same phone, but for T-Mo) and within a year moved to 925 then 1520.

    You are spot on 100% accurate about what a great value and solid all around this deal brings to people. I'm on the beastliest Windows Phone there is and I am so sorely tempted by this deal... I LOVE that you bought 6.

    ​You're a crazy dude.

    Amazon has the newest version of this phone for $57.43, the 635. It has a faster processor, larger screen and would make a perfect music/gps item to have. It is the Go Phone version as well.
