    After seeing these come up again not just once, but twice? Thrice? Really don't feel bad having missed out :)

    Still a great deal though! Especially with the free Skype months.

  •  

    I wonder if anyone will get any stock. Tried French forest and belrose NSW and they said they never got any stock.

    •  

      I picked up 2x yesterday at Warriewood and they said they had a few more.

    •  

      If you annoy them long enough they will get stock from other stores. Where I live there are dozens of them and no one even looks at them.

    was thinking if this phone only 512 meg ram, but spend a bit more on Y550 at Vodafone.
    quad core kitkat 4G, seems very good. unlock from bagman only 3.99

  •  

    My local Woolies (Taree) still has a few. Ended up grabbing one from Big W on the weekend which had a 4GB SD card in it as well - wasn't sure if that was standard or not though!

    •  

      4gd sd card? From big w?
      The box doesn't state that though. I read it from a green n white cover Telstra box.
      What color box did u buy , was it in the phone or in the box?

      •  

        4GB micro card. Came with the green box. Doesn't mention it anywhere on or in the box, just popped up when I was setting it up.

    This is now the standard price for the 530.

    •  

      No it's not. It is a month long promotion. It is unlikely to be this price in January.

        I got it more than a month ago for this price and have seen it this price in 4 "sales" since then.

    the price never changed since 26 NOV, still selling $39.50 and till 24 DEC

    is this model a dual sim ?

  •  

    I assume the phone is locked to Telstra network?

    good as a Turn by turn GPS

  •  

    It was $39.50 today at my local Woolies.

    •  

      its an on going special which has been going for weeks so yeah you can buy it now at that price :)

    I'm unable to get free skype to mobiles with the skype deal. Only landlines.
    Can anyone else confirm this?

    What's the deal with Windows phones? I get the impression that you generally can't root them. That side-loading apps is problematic. That custom ROMs are all but nonexistent, presumably due to Windows licensing restrictions. Is this the case?

    • +1 vote

      Windows phone is more like iPhone back in the old days before 7.0, resource friendly, secure, smooth , just not enough quality apps from third parties.
      You can hack it also side load first party (ex nokia apps) but not much benefit as it doesn't have background crap like android, nor does restrictions left right centre like iOS.

      Nope. Still alive.
      Why would they be bringing out new Windows Phones every so often (e.g. Lumia 535 month or so ago) if it was dying?
      Windows 10, the unified OS, WILL come to ALL Windows Phone 8, 8.1 devices. Confirmed by MS on Windows Central.

        Will it still need the install of a massive piece of bloatware on every computer you want to connect it to or has ms finally made connectivity native and fuss free just like android?

        • +3 votes

          Native fuss free. Just plug and access from My Computer.
          The Zune "bloatware" stopped back in the Windows Phone 7 era

      To get Cortana, you'll need to download the developers preview. (If you need further info, just search the web. Easy enough)
      The Australian version is only in Alpha, so maybe you would want to switch to US (Again, web search) for the full goodness of Cortana

    Just for the reference:
    Grey with orange case phone (most likely from Woolies) doesn't include a 4GB micro sd card.
    White with green case phone (most likely from BigW) does include a 4GB micro sd card.

    •  

      Not exactly, I got the orange case with 4GB SD card. The 4GB SD card is a 'surprise' gift from Microsoft and is included randomly.

        Hmm that broke the trend..

        That's really nice.
        Do you think its possible that

        Then the new lot without them.

        Made in China includes 4GB card whereas Made in Vietnam does not include one.

    Nice accurate audio output on this..ipod rather than budget chandroid in the spectrum, at least with my sure in-ears. Great little streaming audio (spotify) player (on extreme quality setting)

    Another +1 for Bagman unlocking (instructions in higher up post)

    Purchased this phone for one of my parents as a upgrade to a G300. Seems to be fairly easy to use, and possibly doesn't have quite as much of a learning curve. Having a vague memory of earlier Windows Phone/Win CE, have to say i'm impressed with how far its come.

    Didn't notice any lag in the UI. Integration with Microsoft services works well - Outlook, OneDrive, Skype, Onenote etc. I've tried HERE maps but on my Android phone, found that good as well.

    Did notice a bit of a lack of apps/common games. Eg: There's no Candy crush. There were a few other apps that I use which lacked a Windows Phone version/had badly reviewed alternatives. eg (whatsapp 3.5 on WP, 4.5 Android)
    However for phone usage/smartphone basics, it is a excellent option.

    Though it does lack a few features but this is to be expected in a budget phone.
    -No light sensor - lacks auto brightness
    -No proximity sensor - not entirely sure how this works during a call, though I have read that there is software solution for face presses on the screen.

    Overall, a good phone imo especially for those on Telstra/Boost and a fairly good choice for those who unlock.

    •  

      I only read a few days ago on Windows central that candy crush is coming soon!

    •  

      "-No light sensor
      -No proximity sensor"………

      Seems Nokia has gone backwards to make a cheaper budget phone for the masses. My 520 has a proximity sensor, and has auto brightness. Maybe i should buy a couple as spares, while theyre selling off the remaining ones under $100 because i love this phone. Only issue ive come across is adobe flash is not available for the operating system, or so it tells me everytime im asked to install it.

        Those are really minor things with a phone this cheap.
        They have cut back, but not to the point where it's being a major annoyance or inconvenience I feel.

        It does have easy access brightness settings from the swipe down screen,Low/Medium/high. I usually leave it on medium for most of the day then put it down to low at night.

        As for the proximity sensor, my 530 blacks out when I put it up to my ear. I don't have to manually turn the screen off at all. It seems to work without it.

  •  

    Really smooth device with only 512MB RAM. Bagman would be the solution for us all for unlocking!

    PS: You may disappoint the very very bad screen compared to any similar screen size and resolution; but for $39.5 + $15 who cares :)

    My first post here, love the site, buy too many batteries and torches, just my 2c on unlocking I've been getting phones unlocked by telstra for years I just tell them I'm going overseas and will be using a prepaid sim and 20mins later phone is unlocked, never been charged for it either.. also when I upgrade to new phones on plan I get my old one unlocked sell it as a unlocked phone never had a drama…

  •  

    Picked one up at Woolworths Runaway Bay. Mine is grey with a orange bonus cover. Local Big W still advertised it for $79.

    Friendly staff member at Telstra Runaway transferred my exisiting number onto a new micro-SIM effortlessly.

    As with the 520 which was a huge success the 530 will sell like crazy.

    Would this locked phone work with the Aldimobile sims since they run on the Telstra network?

  •  

    Is it just me?

    Some posts have this with a 1.2Ghz quad core processer

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/167094.

    Unit I purchased yesterday is made in Vietnam and only says 1Ghz dual processor on the box (could be the Vinglish translation).

    Other posts talk about a Chinese made model having the SD card already in there - is it possible these ar ethe ones with the 1.2Ghz quad core processor?

    Could there be 2 models and the ones for $39/$39.50 in the Telstra Packaged Box are the 1Ghz ones hence the cheaper price?

  •  

    Picked one up from Kilkenny, SA; and for $39, you really can't go wrong. For those of you who cannot get by with this as their everyday smartphone, there are plenty of other uses. In car-nav, dash-cam, MP3 player, etc.

    When I was in school fifteen years ago I could only have dreamed of obtaining a prepaid Nokia mobile phone for $39. Bargain.

      This is the first Nokia Ive had since my first ever phone 3315 which was $99. I was thinking how far we've come in 10 years.
