    I have Lumia 620 and it does not work on this set. Following are some issues I have faced so far. 1- At times I do not receive calls whether I am in Skype or not. The caller says that the phone keeps ringing and ringing, and I will latter get missed called notification, but never receive the call. 2- No notification of IMs. 3- Extremely slow to load after few minutes of use. Only way to make it work is to reboot the phone. On contacting support, they keep suggesting uninstall and re-install the app.
