- How It Works

Just got the new T-mobile Lumia 521 for $95 from Amazon. Set up was easy. The hardest part was having to cut my existing full size sim card down to the new micro sim size ( but I found very useful videos on youtube uses at your own risk) after that I inserted the card FIRST then let it boot up and do the first time set up and I was good to go!!!!! I can make calls get texts and pictures text. So happy with this phone!! Works great never going back to Android!!

I just got a new Nokia Lumia 521 from T-Mobile and I would love to set it up myself with Simple Mobile. I have the regular SIM card, could you be so kind to share the link where you found the steps to program your phone please?
I would appreciate it very much, I did with my previous phones but for this one I don't see any instructions on the website.

Been a year and a few months since you last responded. I am a Simple Mobile dealer. Sim works great in a Tmobile LG F3 BUT has anyone tried it in a MetroPCS 521/530 etc?...Want to hear what kind of thru-put you're getting on the data. I get . We had LTE service BUT that "radio" has gone away. Still getting strong 5.5 to 10.5 mbps with 4g wimax which I can live with. When I hit a couple of LTE "radios" along I-385 in SC the other day however, I was getting 14 to 17 mbps.
Also, any real diff in actual performance between the 521 and the 530. Just won a 521 for less than 20 bux over on the auction site. Wanting to try it out on Simple eventually getting it unlocked.
