    ^^ If you are referring to text message alert, am afraid. Don't think it can be turned off. But, there is an option to turn off Whats app alert.

    Congrats Rajeev for L520. My wife is also using the same and battery life is simply amazing. One of the best have seen in Lumia range considering it has a 4 inch screen.

    Is there any app where we can use google maps in windows 8?
    I am contemplating to buy a Nokia L720, biggest eyesore is the HERE drive maps which looks a kids drawing book.

    Hi,
    Received the phone just few hours back. Initial impressions are really great.
    Feels nice to hold and work with one hand.

    :)
    However functionality-wise, it is really good. I am currently using Sygic & Google Navigation on Android and previously used waze and navfree.

    I found 'Here drive' equally good to those mentioned. It uses Navteq maps (may be due to many of my friends are working there) ;)

    ^^ Ya, Agree its an awesome phone with high security and awesomely ergonomic for this price range.
    I was reading the navigation part is OKish with less number of landmarks enroute to identify.
    BTW, can you create background wallpapers for the main tile screen and the app list screen?

    Offline capability of Nokia Drive-Here ismuch better than any of the competitor.You don't need any data connection for using the Drive/Here.Just download the map and you are ready to go. You cant change the background wallpapers for the main tile screen.If you want more customization and apps, windowsphone wont be the right choice now.

    Its definitely a good option. However, to make an informed decision and convince yourself, do read reviews on sites like gsmarena, WPcentral, user reviews on flipkart. Am sure these will help in your selection process
