Mine came today... I love how the instructions for removing the back cover are INSIDE the back cover.

That's normal for this procedure, they send the app link in an e-mail.

You have a microsoft e-mail account, right? Like [yourname]@msn.com or [yourname]@hotmail.com or [yourname]@outlook.com. That's the live.com e-mail address they're talking about.

Tap the e-mail icon, which should be on your 520's home page, showing an envelope coming out the right side of a folder. Or find it in your list of apps as "Hotmail".

Once you get that sorted out, but before you make the setting in that new app to store maps to SD card, follow the instructions in that original link, which said to first remove the maps you've installed to your internal storage.

But once you know how, if you haven't mangled your back cover (here's the answer to that: red, yellow, and white replacement backs for $5 ea. with free shipping), it's the easiest back removal of any smartphone: fingernail in the top edge of the back cover (just above the earpiece indent), while simultaneously pressing in the back just under the camera lens.

I have an eBay external charger for this battery, and constantly swap out batteries.

Can't create folders yet. Per the settings page:

Quote:
Create folders on my Start screen

Folders help you keep the Start screen on your Windows Phone 8.1 organized by letting you group Tiles the way you like. For example, you might have a folder with all your games and another with your favorite apps—it's completely up to you. After you create a folder, you can name it, move it, resize it, and add or remove Tiles from it whenever you want. Your phone might even already have a folder on the Start screen, such as a Music+videos folder.
It doesn't work, because they forgot to tell us that you need WP 8.1 Update 1 for this new feature. All we have so far is WP 8.1. I had to Google to find out why it wasn't working.

Finally, all of the updates for the OS and pre-installed apps are done; and that cost me over 0.55 GB of storage. My 8 GB phone started with 4.3 GB of user available storage and dropped to 3.75 GB after the updates. It's a good thing I'm only adding less than a dozen more apps (for now).

Wish it had folders, I hate screen clutter. Anyway, I removed everything from the home screen and then added 6 new downloaded apps (Audible, OverDrive, iHeart, Pandora, Slacker, TuneIn) and 2 pre-installed apps (FM Radio, Appstore). Until I get folders, the rest of the apps will have to stay in that side app drawer.

Speaker is loud enough for my pocket and on the desk. I'll add a 32GB mSD card later for offline playback of audiobooks and music.

Outside of the strange way WP OS works, it's a nice little media player; especially for the price I paid for it. As a phone or mini tablet, it sucks! No way would I use it as such!

Yeah, I figured it out, but just found it amusing that the instructions were inside.

With a voice app? Like Alexa the Echo?

The Windows phone has something like that, called Cortana. I should try it.
Yeah sorta but it's not that smart yet she tells me.

They are not Christmas Presents. I bought them with my Birthday money so technically I can open and use it when I get it.

Wow this little thing has great speakers! Better than the Fire Phone I'd say comparable to my Kindle Fire 7 Speaker but the sound is much richer.

Very weird it must have sensor you put your hand near the speaker and the sound quits. quite annoying placement.

It's not a sensor. You're covering up the only hole the sound comes from and it's muted.

I couldn't find anything called "Lumia Collection". I did find an app called "App Folder", not "App Folders" and it's a Microsoft app. I installed it and its use is very ugly and not intuitive.

After doing all this, NO update was triggered. I checked manually and my phone is up to date. Which version do you now have after you did that triggered update?

My current version is -- 8.10.12393.890

This is just a temporary fix until Update 1 is rolled out and folders are officially added. I'll play with this "App Folder" a bit before I pass judgement on its worth.

Same as mine. You have to scroll sideway when at the store to find the collection.
