DEAD AND SOLD OUT!


If you ordered the phone last night and got charged shipping - then use HSN CHAT and odds are you will get the 10 back. DO NOT CALL THEM SINCE CHAT FOLKS ARE DIFFERENT THEN LIVE. There has been little success with calling but allot of success with HSN CHAT on getting shipping refund .. no rhyme or reason.

YOU MUST check out availability in your area, and have it shipped to an area T-Mobile considers an area having coverage OR THEY WILL CANCEL YOUR ORDER. After T-Mobile cancel, and 2 weeks of dealing with HSN I had this shipped to an address in a T-Mobiles preferred city. Pulled out a pair of scissors and activated on a $15unlimited text/month-10 cent a minute plan. Nice Phone! I turned off data. Wink

You may find no tax online but will with phone order.


$10 off $20 purchase at HSN with Bank of America debit/credit. Just login to your account and claim the cash back

5% with Discover // Discover has cracked down on giving bonus CB on orders with coupon codes.

Ordered 2 phones separately with no shipping nor tax on either.

This phone is compatible with pre-paid / no-contract providers on T-Mobile's network, and AT&T's network if *unlocked.

******************************************************************
*WARNING: Several people have mentioned the AT&T 520 being easier to "Unlock" implying it would be a better choice than the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia 521. What these people are NOT mentioning is AT&T uses different frequencies than T-Mobile.

AT&T uses WCDMA 900 and 2100 (2100 for DATA IIRC)
T-Mobile uses 850 and 1700 (1700 being for DATA)

Typically when using a QUAD band phone on another carrier "Voice" will work, but beyond that full speed DATA. MMS, Picture messaging and having a working Voice Mail indicator isn't going to work properly, if at all.

Another consideration beyond phone having the correct frequencies is all carriers "Brand" the phone with carrier specific software, and or settings that are proprietary to their network.

Short version is if you're "on" AT&T network a AT&T branded phone will be a better choice, If on T-Mobile network a T-Mobile branded phone will be the better choice.

T-Mobile Lumia 521 specs:
http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/...php?p=4062
GSM 850
GSM 900
GSM 1800
GSM 1900
WCDMA 850
WCDMA 1700
WCDMA 1900


***********************************************************************

Some have reported success requesting the unlock code from T-Mobile, 7 days after activating T-Mo service or adding it to an existing T-Mo account. More info on compatible providers and plans www.allprepaidplans.com/ [allprepaidplans.com]

T-Mobile based providers: GIV, GoSmart, TracFone, Lyca, MetroPCS, PTel, Ready SIM, StraightTalk, Solavei, Simple Mobile, Ultra Mobile, Spot Mobile
AT&T based providers: AirVoice, good2GO, H20, NET10, Red Pocket, TracFone, StraightTalk and Cricket.

---------------------------------------
The cheapest "Pay As You Go" providers from the above list are:

T-Mobile Network:
Lyca-mobile [2?/4?/6? for talk/text/data respectively]
Ptel [5?/2?/10? for talk/text/data respectively]
SpotMobile [$25 unlimited talk/text monthly]

AT&T Network:
good2go-mobile [5?/5?/50? for talk/text/data respectively]
h2o-wireless [5?/5?/30? for talk/text/data respectively]

Lyca-mobile:
According to their website you need to get this phone unlocked to work on their network.
Q: What kind of phone do I need? Is a locked T-Mobile phone okay?
A: Lycamobile calls themselves a true mvno and uses their own mobile network code. That means the phone must be unlocked. Almost all other T-Mobile mvno's do not do this. That is why other T-Mobile mvno's can use locked T-Mobile phones.

Amazon has raving reviews for this phone. I just bought a refurb Pixi Plus for pageplus, since I only want easier texting with my clients, but don't want a smartphone. However, if I choose to go the smartphone route, I'm totally getting this phone next.

Given that Windows Phone may now have "Cortana".

It will be the only phone for me.. Android / iOs can go suck it.

I've always been pretty gung-ho for Android but I really like windows phone 8. I've been wanting to try it out without using a upgrade on it. If I like this one I will probably upgrade to a nicer model.

raving reviews are the reasons why this phone must be dropping price to sell. LOL.

HSN doesn't charge tax for my state (SC), not sure about other states. This is my 3rd nokia 521 lumia from HSN and I was never charged tax. The 521 works great, very fast and smooth operating system.
