The problem is if you upgrade to WP 8.1 before Lumia Cyan, you need to wait for a Bitlocker and low memory space fixes that the WP team is still working. If you do other way round, you don’t have to worry about it then. In case ...

If you happen to open a direct link to the game, either on your phone or via the Windows Phone website, you should see a message ...

No, the battery should not be pulled from the phone every two days. From a Windows Phone perspective There is no need to restart your phone every few days. In fact, the only time the phone needs to be restarted is when there is a system app (eg. the glace screen app) or system update (eg. the Denim update). From a battery perspective Removing it from the ...

Sounds like you may have Super sensitive touch enabled. This lets you use your phone with gloves, but can be annoyingly sensitive if just using your bare hands. To disable this, go to Settings → touch, and set "Touch sensitivity" to normal.

As far as I know, both of those games require 1 GB of RAM(1), and the Lumia 520 only has 512 MB. So that's the reason you're not able to find them in the Store. This should be standard behaviour - apps that aren't compatible with your phone for whatever reason don't show up in searches. You can always search for the app at WindowsPhone.com, or open the ...

There are several apps that are able to play avi or mkv files. I did a quick Google search on Windows Phone 8 mkv. Here are some examples: MoliPlayer Pro (costs 2.99, good score after 78 reviews) CCPlayer (free, 4/5 after 400 reviews) It's up to you to install, I didn't try any of them.

AFAIK the best option would be Threema. This messaging tool is made by a swiss company supporting end-to-end encryption and no need for any personal data if you don't want. According to the company any data will be deleted from their servers as soon as a message was delivered. I haven't tried it myself yet but I heard some good things. http://www....
