I received a pop-up window for 15% off if I shared my email as a first time subscriber to HSN emails. I inserted my "spam" email account and received the email for the code.


How to Unlock (p.s. not easy)
If you purchased an eligible device, the device has been programmed with a SIM Subsidy lock that will prevent the device from operating with other compatible wireless telephone carrier’s services.

If you wish to use the device with the service of another wireless telephone carrier, you must enter a numeric SIM Subsidy unlock code to unlock the device.

Understanding SIM Unlock Requirements

As an active or former T-Mobile customer, you may request a phone unlock. T-Mobile will unlock your phone (as long it is not reported as lost, stolen, or blocked) if:

•You have purchased your device from T-Mobile or an authorized T-Mobile dealer and activated it on T-Mobile service;
•You have Postpaid service, have not requested an unlock code in the last 90 days;
•You paid for your device in full;
•Your account is in good standing;
•You have a minimum of 40 consecutive days of active Postpaid service since purchase (or for Prepaid service, have used your device within the past 60 days );
•You are under a 24-month service contract, you have made monthly payments for at least 18 consecutive months on your plan or have paid a migration fee for the device; certain exceptions may apply please call Customer Care for details;
•You are on a Prepaid plan, you have had more than $50 in total refills on the device;
•You are a former customer, your account balance is zero and you did not port out a line associated with the device during the buyer’s remorse period;
•You provide proof of purchase if T-Mobile is unable to verify purchase.

Note: Exceptions to some or all requirements may apply in certain circumstances, including for Military Personnel and Business and Government Accounts.

This has got FM radio antenna, which will be enabled by software update in a few weeks, called GDR2 update for windows phone.

Anyone who thinks that 512MB RAM on this phone is not enough, think twice:
Seems as per this study, 99% of apps run fine on 512MB WPs. WP does not require
high specs to run smooth like Android.

Hopefully, after a few months' use, I can have T-Mobile unlock it for me so that it can work on other GSM networks, and then I can bring it with me when traveling around the world at the Xmas season.

I wonder why they are discounting them. They are already selling a lot of these phones. AFAIK, Lumia 520 became the highest selling Lumia in the world in less than 2 months after its release. Interesting...

Btw, I bought it when it was $129 from Walmart. I am very happy with it. I use it as a mp3 player and a gps (I put 64gb card in it)
