    Bought a black one today - first smartfone for me.
    Looks nice, feels good, runs smooth - hopefully it will fulfill my needs.

    Just got mine from Telus, I unlocked it and have it on Bell as a replacement for my smashed 8S. Liking it so far, love all these Nokia features :)

    Bought one at an AT&T Company store for $99.99 + tax yesterday. I'm not sure if I'll keep it. I have 14 days to try it out.

    Guys I bought the phone a few days back and I have a small question, don't really want to make a new thread for this question.

    In the official music+video player, isn't it possible to forward or rewind the music files ? I can't seem to be able to do it. The tiny little track bar that shows how far the song/file is done can't be manipulated by touch. It's OK for songs, but for listening to podcasts it could be an issue.

    Press and hold the skip buttons, that acts as ff/rewind.

    Today I am back on Windows Phone 8 at last !! :D

    I purchased a Lumia 920 in November and used it for only 10 days before returning it due to heating concerns, plus unable to unlock it back then. I switched to Wind and settled with a Lumia 710 which I flashed with a custom WP7.8 ROM, but have been feeling like a fish out of water for the past 8 months. I really wanted WP8.

    This week I decided I should jump on WP8 ASAP even if I had to settle with a temporary cheap phone (my eyes are on the Lumia 1020), so I switched to Chatr, sold my 710, and today I got the Lumia 520 after managing to grap a good deal.

    Superstore is selling the phone in Canada for $119.99, so I got the Rogers-branded version, and as I was expecting it worked right away with my Chatr sim card. It would work with a Fido sim as well, but not with any other unless the phone is unlocked. It won't work with Wind or Mobilicity no matter what (unless you get the t-mobile Lumia 521 version).

    I am enjoying the Lumia 520 which has been running great so far without issues. I had a stressful couple of minutes trying to learn how to take off the cover. Haven't noticed any heating at all, although I haven't started running apps yet as well, just downloading maps and other updates. I hope the phone get updated to GDR2, although it's not much of a concern. Hopefully by the end of this year I will on the Lumia 1020.

    Jumped ship from Note 2 to 520. I am so familiar with android and it takes me couple of days to get used to windows phone. So far lack of apps is dis-encouraging. No real notification center is another problem. Limited background running cause some apps don't get updated at all until open.

    Great cheap back up phone but not for daily use for me yet.

    Thinking about getting this phone solely for correct mms settings, but don't know if I'd want a camera without flash

    I just bought one from a Telus store for $118.00 Canadian to replace my Lumia 800. No NFC, no flash, and only 5mp camera. Totally worth it.

    For an inexpensive phone like this it's a total home run by Nokia. I briefly considered buying an Ativ S outright, but for four times the cost it was a no brainer to go with the 520.

    Just made the purchase today. Selling my 822. Miss my MMS. In comparison, it's almost the same experience. Going to have to play with the camera to get it the way I want to, and performance is slightly slower but not enough to make me upset lol

    Download ProCam, works well so far on my 520. Follow this tutorial:

    No, there is no compass. It is one of the items Nokia left out in order to keep the price down.

    Revisiting after a month of purchasing:

    I love the WinPho8 experience. It's just this whole finding the hardware thing to be my current struggle. AT&T seems to have solved that now by releasing the 925. I love the size and feel of the 520 and would have probably stuck it out if it weren't for these two big things:

    Signal- This phone is constantly dropping bars in places that I've never experienced that. I need something a bit more dependable

    512 MB Ram- It gets the job done for the most part, but the constant refreshing and signing back into sites, especially on IE. Highly annoying.

    Now I just gotta save pennies
