So any way to get the call recording to work on Lumia 520? Any app?
It's highly important right now.

He he vyom, still stuck with windows ?!
Yeah.. I think I will have to replace my dad's Lumia 520 with a sub 10k Android. It's just that WP seemed to be hassle free phone for him.

Getting lumia 640 would be a lot better.

How exactly? I think it's the app support which is failing here. If there were an app to record calls then I could also install it on 520.

[MENTION=159164]$hadow[/MENTION] [MENTION=77264]Vyom[/MENTION] Public API for call recording, call logs and so on are not there because Windows Phone puts user's privacy first. Microsoft should release it's own app for call recording instead of releasing a public API. Support for public API will become a concern for privacy as 3rd party apps may access it without our knowledge.

^ That's why Microsoft didn't allow Truecaller to work with WP OS first. After a deal, they found a way to work together as it is now.

Re: Lumia 52X : Discussion thread

Yea. They just 'want' users to move to its competitor. Sad.

Actually you spoke my mind at the time of lumia 520 launch it made several stones unturned.I created this thread and within few days I bought the phone as I expected over the time period they managed to bring several important applications.Eventhough I like the look and fell and commitment for giving updates for atleast three years, I hate their attitude in promoting bing search and there is no option to assign the dedicated search button to some other well polished search engine like google and not providing call recording for long time.Microsoft managed to kill competition (Netscape …) when the ball is in their ground (windows os).But google act smartly they provide all its services free (because Microsoft managed to kill netscape by providing internet explorer free) improved search engine, maps,youtube,gmail … to untouchable level, adapting to new things quickly than competitors, innovating many new things and finally established their own battlefield (android).

At the launch time fo lumia 520 nokia priced it correctly at the same time Samsung behave arrogant,greedy and priced their handset high without giving any major improvements especially around Rs.10000 price band and windows devices also act slowly in bringing appreciable improvements in hardware deapartment (chinese phone manufacurers utilised this they bring hundreads of phones under 10,000 , giving noticeable improvements (ram,resolution,processor,battery,camera,design,4g … and established their strong base in Rs.5000 to 10,000 price band). Software department also google adapted some of the advantage of windows phone by launching plain android os based devices.

In my opinion mobile phones are limited usability and durability device but have the potential for mass adoption.So middle level segment phones should be priced around Rs.5000 and high end devices priced around Rs.10,000. After few years market will reach saturation stage in that situation chinese manufacturers should fix their price around Rs.5000 and all other established brands like Samsung,Microsoft,sony,lg … should fix their price below Rs.10000 to survive.If apple adamant in selling their product at high price over the time they will vanished from market.

I had a L520 from oct13 to oct14.Had a fun one year with it. Would give it an 8/10. Then i purchased Moto E and been using it for almost 9 months and its just as good if not better than L520.Only the camera is worse although i do miss L520 sometimes because of my love for Nokia rather than Windows Phone itself.
Windows OS was fine but I do like the freedom of Android more. Hopefully Windows 10 will be good and make me consider Windows phone again.

Well they will give the user an option as in many countries it is illegal to record a call without other party knowing about it.

As far as i read, they've intentionally disabled this feature in WP - not sure whether it's for privacy or lack of WP coders at that time.

So, can Whatsapp be backed up offline or on cloud now?

I need to swap sdcard from Lumia 520, but last time I tried it I lost the history and my dad was mad about it for days.
