    following on from the above post... you cna search in-store inventgory / availability...
    Search for 0061021463207


    Then enter your zip code for the in store availability check... i have a couple in houston close to me... might have to go take a look :)

    They look to be selling again given Slickdeals.

    These things are going like hot cakes.

    Not surprising given the amazing price out of contract!

    I bought one in store at Walmart. It isn't on the floor yet but it is in the back. My suggestion is look the upc up on walmart's website and have that handy when you go in.

    I bought it just for fun!
    Its 130 out the door no contract?

    No contract, but there is sales tax, of course.

    I set my daughter's 521 we bought today against my 810, a bit smaller and lighter. Not bad looking and the price without contract, yeah, very respectable.wp_20130506_011.jpg The final result after setting it up...

    Got one today. It's pretty nice for the price. Wifi, bluetooth, glove-touchable screen (resistive layer on top of capacitive?). Speaker is really loud. OS is fast of course. Screen is plastic and attracts MEGA fingerprints. You will need to wipe it every few minutes. No flash or front camera. They have a white backplate. HSPA+ on T-Mo is blazing fast. Has internet sharing. Overall, a nice foray into WP8 (I'm a Nexus 4 fanboy). Barely got it - they didn't want to sell it to me, but I asked them to ring it up and see if it worked. It did. Hey, it's a very cheap Nokia Drive GPS if nothing else!

    I'm happy! Good little backup phone. Pairs perfectly with my T-Mo $30 SIM (while my ATT Straight Talk SIM is in my N4). The cheap for the masses trojan horse MSFT needs - they have it! This thing will be out of stock forever. The cashier was stunned at the price. Good luck.

    Quick question, will the 521 work with the TMO sim card that I currently have or will it only work for the prepaid plan? I'm pretty sure it will work but I just want to make sure.

    It will work with any T-Mobile SIM.

    Nice, thanks! I've located some Walmarts around here that have limited stock according to their website, so I will see if I can manage to nab one!

    No, it's super-sensitive. Nokia licensed the technology from Synaptics. No resistive layer.

    As long as its a micro SIM and not the regular size or the nano (I phone) SIM.

    I got one. Wrote down the stock number and took it to the store. They found it in a new stock box on the floor. It had just come in.

    I just got an e-mail saying my phone is being shipped to the store via FedEx. Should arrive Friday. I'll just wait for that rather than try to pick one up now (if there is any in the back storeroom) and trying to deal with cancelling my in-store pickup order.

    No luck for me...I asked about 3 people to look up the ups and all of them directed me to the prepaid section saying if its not there then they dont have it, and if they don't have it there is nothing to look up. :\ Should I just go in and ask them to look up the ups number without hinting that its a phone or what?

    Show this number 0061021463207, but of course, you have to find someone who actually will do it. We had no hassles getting one. Keep trying. Local stock levels here look to be about the same as they were yesterday, so they are still out there.

    Went to another store and managed to get one! Surprisingly they already had it on the floor and it was labeled as Flame Lumia 521 or something along those lines. It was the last one too.

    Just picked mine up and setting it up now.

    Very first impressions:

    * Amazing hand feel - thin, light and compacy
    * Beautiful screen although the surface is not nearly as 'slidey' as my 920
    * Downloading maps was easy
    * Storage check not installed by default - checking to see if I can d/l it

    I downloaded the beta, but thanks for the tip.

    Also - I am a little biased, but this thing is insanely good for $130. I really can't believe how impressive it is.

    I found a Walmart close by that had 2 of them on hand. Just tonight I grabbed them both! I'm playing with one of them; I'm not sure yet what I'll do with the other one.

    It seems that Walmart doesn't put them on display. I printed out the SKU 0061021463207 along with a bar code, gave it to the lady at the phone desk, and after scanning it with her bar code scanner she said there were 2 of them in the back. She went and got them, and as she was ringing them up told me she had no idea they had anything like that!

    Well that explains it! Hasn't the official release date arrived yet?

    FWIW, the phone works!

    May I ask how you printed out those information and how you went about asking the rep? I've been trying to get another one for my mother who liked it after messing with mine, but all the sales rep I went to gave the same excuses and would not even try to check the SKU in their system because "if there is not even a tag, we do not have it."
