    I'm going to look into an unlocked model (sadly that won't be cheap and will hurt my wallet). Going to convince my folks to move over to Tmo's rate plans to get some extra oomph in getting my hands on one.
    I know it can be tough spending full price on a phone... But when you get down to it, that really does benefit you in the long run because you can use it on any GSM network you want, including the prepaid ones and overseas if you ever want or have to travel. I have an unlocked iPhone 4 I spent a pretty penny on two years ago that is my backup should anything happen with my 810 (such as losing it, which is what I did with a phone in early 2011). I was also consider getting an unlocked Lumia 920 until I got every last tidbit on the 810, though I couldn't really afford it.

    Good luck, and I hope you're able to get the phone at a reasonable price!

    I feel like after 2 years you would be happier with the 810 than with the 510 in terms of performance because we don't know what updates are coming out in the future. The 810 is new back colors in different colors More Nokia Lumia 810 Colors | Pocketnow

    You can't really go wrong with nokia this company will support you for a long time.

    I would get the 810 on the basis of having a clearblack display, which makes a huge difference in outdoor use. Both 521 and 810 are under the mercy of Tmobile in terms of updates so no difference there...

    i was going to get 810 to replace my 710 but now seeing that it is EOL and the only other option for WP8 with T-mobile is 510 make me sad. wish t-mobile have better Nokia WP8.

    Well, it may be best to hold onto your 710 and save your pennies up and grab something in the fall.

    or go unbranded if you have the dough. I was thinking of getting a 620 or 720.

    I think the Lumia 521 is a steal, the 810 is a better phone for sure but not everyone needs the extras.

    If you're stuck between choosing the two, go for the 810.
    Okay, it's been EOL'd, but it's still superior to the 521.

    Since the 521 is just a 520 variant, it won't have Clearblack and that's a deal breaker for me

    ^ This. especially if the price of a mint 810 is close to a brand new 521.
