    So, my daughter's 521 was updated, just before she went back to college, by mid week she told me her apps wouldn't work and picture messaging either. She wanted to know if it was ok to take to a T-Mo corp store where she's at. They thought maybe the update was stuck and to download 'zune' to fix it. WTF??!? Really, Zune was for before Win8 phones. I talked her thru the process of hard resetting her phone, which repaired whatever was wrong and it redownloaded Amber and GDR2. Long story short, wifi calling can mess your phones' apps up, once it was turned off, everything seems normal in the app world.
    Picture messaging does not work when WiFi Calling is active.
    I've had no problems with any apps though while it is active.

    Adding Product Codes for 521 to first page for NCS flashing.

    059T039 RM-917 VAR NAM US METROPCS WIRELESS

    059S0B4 RM-917 VAR US T-MOBILE SL

    059S000 RM-917 PWBASSY LIGHT SWAP ENG GLOBAL <-This must be the really expensive Unsubsidized unlocked version that you can get from Expansys and NegriElectronics. Wonder if it has no T-Mobile logo on boot etc. Checked NCS not gdr2/amber. Still Portico(gdr1) 1030.6409.1311.0001 very first version that came on phone.

    Looks like Nokia pulled the GR2/Amber update for 521..not on NCS anymore or my ncs is too outdated..

    But the dropbox and mega download link still works..

    I think they may reissue it with some missing features? Just a thought.

    Nokia Smart Cam finally updated.
    It may have been updated a few weeks ago for other devices, but, everytime I tried checking on it, it said it was unavailable for 521.
    Even though it came preinstalled with gdr2/amber.
    anybody else get the update. (Amber required)

    Thanks for the update, I noticed it was odd earlier I couldn't even find it in the store even after the Amber update. Good to know!

    Wow. I reinstalled ProCam a few days ago (although I don't really need it since I bought ProShot), but today it quit working again and came up with a message about how it doesn't work on my model phone. That's twice its quit working for me. Not worth the hassle if they keep doing that, especially since you can get ProShot without hassles.

    Procam was never designed to work on 52X devices anyways, nokia must have put a device check in on the last update for Procam to prevent it. Sure Nokia could tweak it to make it work. Would be nice, but with photo apps like ProShot, OneShot(have yet to try it out probably next app that I will get with my bing points) and Camera360(free and pretty awesome) those do work without any problems.

    Yeah. Nokia ProCam. Interesting that yours keeps working. Maybe its something I am doing. I use it mostly in manual mode, and can often lock up the ProCam app with only one shot.

    Update Sept 23 - My ProCam has now been working a week. I guess whatever problems it had have been fixed. I still prefer ProShot though.

    Hey Everyone,

    Trying to flash Amber to my new 521. I downloaded NCS but it keeps showing my phone is not supported. I have already downloaded Amber firmware from a previous post in this thread but I can't flash it. Can anyone give me some tips please.
    Thanks.

    The download you got from this thread is only for the T-Mobile 521, check your product code, if 059S0B4 then set NCS to offline mode, try a different USB port on the computer itself.

    If product code is 059T039(metropcs) , or 059S000 you will have to redownload the gdr2/amber package if available.

    Thank you for your help.

    I downloaded a newer NCS from 2013 and I tried it on my Win 7 Pro computer and this time it worked. NCS showed my phone instead of saying unsupported. Finally got Amber on my 521. I really wanted FM Radio, thats the biggest reason for buying this phone for me.

    Read the post right these, T-Mobile/Nokia pulled the OTA update. The only way to update currently is by flashing your phone with NCS losing all your data.

    I wish I really knew that answer, but, a search found this. Possible Issue with Wi-Fi Calling (which is a really big feature needed by some)

    Mobile operator&#58; the message you sent to number wasn&#39;t - Microsoft Community

    Woke up this morning to a blank lockscreen. I have it set to see the beautiful new Bing pictures when I wake it up. Today nada. I started playing some music with the XBox app and when I turned the screen off and on it was displaying the album art. Its never done that before. I also tried Photos and Facebook and they all worked on the lockscreen, but not Bing. Then about 1/2 hour later, the Bing wallpaper started working again :) It looks like maybe Nokia is getting the lockscreen stuff to work as it should and updated it while I slept. If they would just add the new much prettier Bing Weather tiles to it I would be happy as a clam.

    I don't know what the issue with WiFi calling is. It works so great for me, gives me extra service in basements!
