  • Performance to Price - I don't think anything compares to the 520/521.  Wish there was a little more umph to it, but not worth the extra $500 to get a beefier model.  I wish T-Mobile had a good $200-$250 Lumia model to choose. The 635 looks interesting, but not sure its worth the money to replace my "still good enough for 95% of what I need it for" 521 Lumia.

    Sadly I guess I don't get a $25 gift voucher on my 521? That's disappointing.

    If you guys are ever in KC (in the summer) - you should do a PING show from the Verruckt.  http://www.nbcnews.com/business/travel/its-insane-worlds-tallest-water-slide-ready-open-n151881

    I just discovered the gift voucher app but unfortunately it's not available for my 920. Now thinking I should have upgraded to the 1520 which has it. Still it's a solid move to give users a gift which I support. I'll still go on to a Lumia 930 as my next phone when it's available where I am. I just hope the 930 is a supported device and that the promo is still available by then.

    To answer your question, I'd have spent a good deal of it on some language apps. I speak 4.1 languages, Shona, Ndebele, English, Spanish plus a very little bit of Japanese; I intend to pick up Italian, French and Mandarin in the not to distant future. A lot of the language learning apps I've seen are available at a cost of have a lot of in app purchases and of have liked to use the gift voucher on these.
  • Meep, and of course that gift voucher app isn't available in Finland.

    It's not available for my 928 either. :(
