Summary: My kids got these for Christmas as there very 1st smartphone. We could not get messaging to work on T-Mobile correctly. On T-Mobile we found you need to set preferences from 4G to 2G for texting to work correctly. You also have to get a micro SIM card from T-Mobile if you don't have one. It's like ten bucks to get smaller size. My kids went from flip phone to these phones. They are very cheap in price but a good sturdy phone for a budget. It's a windows phone. Note that.
Summary: I bought this to replace my other Lumia 822. For some reason Cortana doesn't work with my language and region (English, USA)!?! Yesterday the phone just froze up while I was making calendar entries. Remedy was to take the battery out and put it back in and restart the phone. Also an app dropped off because it said it wasn't supported by the SIM card I used (Verizon, USA). Confusing...but otherwise it is working.
Summary: I like this phone a lot. Great camera quality, nice screen quality. Would be five stars but coming from an android phone, several apps are not available on windows phones such as: candy crush, duolingo (not available on this particular device), and my favorite app snapchat. I was very disappointed when I saw that there were so many that weren't available. I do love this phone, the pros outweigh the cons, I would buy again, and I do recommend.
Summary: I love the Windows platform. However, this is a Verizon phone and that's not my carrier, so some of the built in features on this phone don't work they way they would if I were with Verizon. Now I think maybe I should have just ordered a phone directly from Nokia, or at least not gotten a phone that was set up to be a Verizon phone. Live and learn. But the phone itself is great!
Summary: Go this as a temporary phone for my husband and it worked great with verizon (contract) ... My only complaint is that the charging port did not allow the USB cord (charger) to go in all the way (almost like something was stuffed or stuck in there)... it still charges, but my husband has to have the cord 'just so' for it to charge. Overall not bad for the price.

Summary: Gave it only 4 stars for the fact that when I received this phone it didn't come with a battery?! But minor set back amazon granted a partial refund and just used that to buy a battery and works like a champ this is all out a good phone for the price so far so good no complaints & satisfied with my purchase .
Summary: So far this cell phone has met my expectations. On the windows phone 8 side, even though there aren't as many apps available as there are for other OSes, I have found the ones I need for my daily use. On the phone side, great looks, the screen looks very nice, the phone is snappy and responsive and it has a great battery life. As a regional comment, I'm using this cell phone with Movistar Venezuela, It came unlocked, as advertised, and It's working without any problems.
