    A really entertaining read.
    I'm surprised the OP has not been offered a job at WPC already!

    Speaking of Charlie Sheen. Nokia has now called twice and left a message while I was at work. They are able to replicate the issue but still cannot figure out how to fix it. They assure me they are working diligently on finding a solution. How they are unaware of the Lumia Pusher app is beyond me and I wouldnt mind sharing it with them except they never leave a number to call them back.

    On a side note Xfinity offers a transcription option to have voicemail turned into text and emailed to you. Here is a snippet Nokia's voicemail transcribed by Xfinity for your reading pleasure.

    "Hi this is Roy from Boca. I'm calling at pharmacy *my last name*. Okay honey this is Lori and how the moment. I am here in farmington-that(?) we are still waiting for further updates in regards to the lost peak-auction(?) on their-glands(?) on your device. I asked her to reset and I am waiting for any updates regarding this from our product specifically for this in this particular field to help us out there and be able to give us answers why this particular thing happened because on our side here (snip)

    Thank God they attach a wav file with the actual message.

    After spending a couple of weeks away from the 925 and steering the 7 seas with my 521, I can say I do miss the 925.

    The 521 comes with a regional license for Here Drive instead of a global license. I was fine with this until I tried to use the phone without a SIM and Here Drive refuses to work. Instead of letting my use offline maps for the region I picked and the maps I had downloaded prior to removing the SIM, I am prompted to upgrade to a global license for $19.99. Slightly confusing at first as I was under the impression all Nokias had offline GPS out of the box, but a little Google Fu later, I discovered this was not the case. The global license, from what I gather, unlocks the true offline use. So currently I am sans Here Drive until I pony up 20 bucks. Not a big deal I dont have a trip planned until Labor Day when I absolutely need offline GPS so I will pay for it before I leave.

    I am also experiencing shutter lag when I take pictures, moving picture storage from the SD card cleared this up for a little while but it has crept back up. Im hunting a more permanent solution.

    I do believe that the 521 is a lot of phone for the money though even with these setbacks, but I do miss the awesomeness that is the 925.
