    I know some are saying goodbye but I just got a new 810 off eBay and am going to give it to my daughter to replace her 521. She wants a front camera and no app limitations due to low ram like the 521. I installed 8.1 and it runs great. She should be happy with this phone for a while. As long as we can get updates thought the developer preview I figured it should be fine. I am still hoping that maybe T-Mobile will decide to official release 8.1 for it.

    Nice! I hope your daughter likes the 810. It is a nice device and should be a good upgrade from the 521.

    That's awesome! The 810 was my first Windows Phone and I've been switching pretty regularly between it and my 925 that I got in late February. Of course, I have 8.1 installed on it as well. Glad your daughter is loving her 810! Great phone! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Great choice! If I could have unlocked my 810, I would still be using it. Still, no complaints from my 920 (well, the absence of data sense is one).

    Make sure you get some good accessories as well. BodyGlove and Tech 21 make really awesome cases for this phone. Screen protector are after market and they are so-so...

    You can also try checking the cases from Speck, they are going for dirt cheap on eBay these days. As far as screen protectors go you can use anyone

    It sounds like you've already gotten rid of your 810, but if not, T-Mobile is very lenient with sending unlock codes. A few basic, reasonable requirements about things like length of service, and within 48 hours, you'll have the code. I did this for two phones before I switched to MetroPCS.............which, of course, is really running on the TM network. You don't even need to unlock the phone for a SIM card switch!

    I got the 810 up and running with 8.1 dev preview and it has been working great so far. My daughter is happy she has a front camera and the phone is much snappier than her 521 with 8.1. Honestly, as long as Microsoft allows the updates through the developer app I see no reason not to keep the 810 for a long time-at least until WP 9 comes out.

    There is a seller by the name jajorch on eBay, he has some really good prices on BodyGlove and Tech21 cases. Screen protectors are also on eBay, I paid about $2 for 4 of them a few months ago.

    I ended up getting a pink tech21 case and illumishield screen protectors for it. Great case and the shields went on real well.
