Heads up for those looking for a subscription music service. There are two promos currently available. Both services have apps in the appstore.

I got both now to play with.

If you do Swagbucks you can get back 150SB on the Rhapsody Promo if you do this offer from their homepage. Aw well. It isn't the first time I jumped ahead.

Got home to a box sitting on the doorstep. Updated to 8.1, loaded maps for my state, put some music on it. I don't hate the Windows phone OS nearly as much as I expected. :
The Nokia streaming music app is an unexpected bonus, it also allows downloading of mixes.

OK, I'm out of time to play with the thing, I'll have to explore more tomorrow.

Mine will be here today! If I don't like it I will keep it as a back up phone. I ordered an Android LG Volt today. So if nothing else the Windows Phone will be great for navigation.

What's the Volt going to be used for? I use mine for Audio books from Kindle Unlimited, Scribd and Overdrive.

What I intended to use the Fire Phone for. A Media Player. The Fire Phone has become a actually phone for me. So I don't see me wasting battery playing music or audiobooks unless out and about. I use my Fire Phone for my PIM, Phone, Email and to Surf the web. I love Silk on the phone. I hate Silk on the Kindle Fire. I'm always asking Fiona which is what I named my phone questions.

My Nokia Lumia 520 was scheduled for delivery on Friday, December 26, but a mail truck carrying only packages just dropped it off two days early (at 8 a.m.—four hours earlier than my regular carrier).

I haven't even opened the box yet. Looks like I have a new toy to play with on Christmas.

You're welcome!

Now I just need to figure out how to use this newfangled Windows phone. Unfamiliar tech always boggles my old brain, but after some initial trepidation, I do catch on fast.

I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow to open the packaging and play with it.

With a voice app? Like Alexa the Echo?

The Windows phone has something like that, called Cortana. I should try it.

I can't get the app from my phone, and doing it from the web site says they can't send it, to check my live.com email on my phone. No clue how to do that. Anyway, downloading my state's map, I guess to internal storage.

Plenty of room for the map. Maybe it can keep me from getting lost when I take my daughter to an out of town dentist next month. Got lost on the way AND the way back, when I took her a week or two ago.
