I know I will not get my phone back but I will be a little happy knowing that the person who robbed it cannot use it.
Are you worried if the person can use your phone or whether he can read your email? If it's the second, then change your email's password - that will stop any new emails from downloading.

Have Office IT issue a remote wipe for this phone. That will ensure that no one can access emails and office docs stored on phone.

Hi guys,
I'm considering getting a Lumia 520. Any other suggestions that would support flash and real time updating of websites? Internet experience is the first priority.

I don't think a lumia would support flash. Adobe has stopped mobile support for flash and even the newer versions of android do not have flash. One of the best Internet experience is still the iOS but the Lumia is not far behind. Go ahead with the 520 if you are not a whatsapp user. Whatsapp is still not working properly on windows phone.

The Phone did not switch off after that till date. Might be My Better Half accidentally pressed Power Button for too long and the phone got switched off (she use to see the time on my phone).
Thanks for your help Mayank.

Internet Explorer is one solid browser. Just no flash. And flash sucks big time no matter what mobile device you use it on. It works best with a mouse and a proper windows machine.

+1 to that. I've switched many browsers on my Xperia S, no browser on Android comes close to IE on WP8 on my Lumia 920. I still keep switching browsers on my Galaxy Tab, but wont need any alternate on WP.

Any Lumia 520 users out there? I've heard the phone overheats a lot as compared to the others. Going to get one soon, so need your advice.

It's around 43K according to flipkart.
Check this link: http://www.flipkart.com/htc-one-801e...d-bc4dac9ddaaa.
It's a very good phone indeed, so go ahead.

I would suggest pay almost the same price and get a new phone with bill and warranty. Mostly the developer pieces are without bill and it will be tough to get warranty in india especially. Wait for an indiatimes midnight deal and you can get a new htc one for around 39k.

A few of my friends are using Lumia 520 and are pretty satisfied with it. Also since they are using folding covers, they haven't complained of heating. I think it is one of the best budget smartphones around in Windows platform.

I am looking for a feature phone under 4000/- for my mom. She will use only the basic features like making and receiving calls. Any suggestions ?

Looking for a QWERTY phone with a decent cam (3MP+). Not interested in Blackberry, that leaves me with 2 options - Nokia Asha 302 or HTC ChaCha

Nokia comes with a 1Ghz processor but S40, HTC comes with an older flavor of Android. I am inclined towards the Nokia simply because I have been an Eseries user and find it easy to use. Any suggestions? Budget is max 10-11k
