Summary: Great reasonably sized smartphone. Windows is a familiar operating system and syncing phone to your existing Microsoft account is handy. Phone accesses internet smoothly on Wi-Fi or through Verizon cellular network (go to or call Verizon for a sim card). The installed apps are sufficient and practical. I'm not into gaming so can't say whether game apps are available. But the installed apps are sufficient for practical purposes.
Summary: This. Phone. Saved. My. Life. Not literally, but you get it, everyone has been there. If you have a verizon sim card (in the tray underneath the memory card), then this phone will work for you. At this price? Saved me HUNDREDS of dollars, not to mention prevented me from prematurely renewing my awful contract. I love windows phones, I will never switch to another type if I can help it, and this Lumia is my life. Love it.
Summary: When I took this phone to Verizon to activate, the guy said he was curious about a Windows phone and that it didn't have as many apps as other phones, although they are increasing in availability. I have had a couple of different Android phones and loved the swyping on a Samsung Galaxy I had but this phone is very easy to use and intuitive even without that. It does have the ability to record, though, so compensates in that way for the lack of swyping.
Summary: Great phone for the price. Everything works well, integrates with my Windows desktop computer. Now with Windows 8.1 update, it features the Cortana personal assistant. the Camera is very nice as well. Not the top of the line Nokia windows phone, but for the price performance ratio, it is great for what I want it to do. This is a new phone, the one I purchased, from Mango Wireless, and I only had to take it to the closest Verizon store to buy a 4G SIM card for $10.00.

Summary: The product did not charge or have a SIM tray. I could not put in my SIM card or turn the phone on upon arrival. I would not waste my money or time on this product. I ended up returning it shortly after it arriving.
