WARNING: As of 2015, the Lumia 521 has been DISCONTINUED by MetroPcs and it is available only as a "used" phone. Because these "used" phones may be locked to the prior owner's account, it may be be IMPOSSIBLE to activate the 521 on your MetroPcs account. If you do not have a MetroPcs account, there is ZERO chance that you can activate this phone.
NOTE: In 2015, Lumia 521 has been replaced by the FAR SUPERIOR Lumia 640 LTE, which has fast 4g LTE, dual cameras, a big five inch screen, 4G LTE for fast data speeds, and it includes a long life battery. The Lumia 640 LTE has Windows Mobile 8.1 and will receive a free upgrade to Windows Mobile 10 in December 2015. BONUS: the new Lumia 640 LTE sells for just $59 at AT&T stores, Microsoft stores, and "big box" stores.
The Lumia 521 uses Windows 8, NOT Android. Window 8 provides an easy to use introduction to smartphones for people upgrading from a basic dumb phone. The Lumia 521 and Windows 8 make it easy to make phone calls, send text messages and check email. The 521 is NOT for the folks who think they need 5,000 apps, or who play 3D action games, nor can it substitute for an expensive camera. People who are in love with the apps on their current Android phone or their Apple iPhone will be frustrated not finding their favorite app in the Windows App Store.
The camera take adequate photos in bright sunlight, but it has no flash for indoor photos.Read more ›

I like it very much.....but it goes off on its on sometimesPublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
It's a nice phone but it would have been great if it came with a SIM card and a charger. Only had a few scratches in it and a dent on the bottom of the phone. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Pros: Price, performance, battery life and design.
Cons: Apps availability (or lack there-of due to low support compared to iOS or Android).
