I've been an android user for the last 5 years, but have recently started looking into getting a windows phone. Checked out a few devices and decided the 520 would meet my needs perfectly. But when Microsoft bought up Nokia, it put my plans on hold. My fear is that over time there will be a lack of support and updates for the Nokia phones. Do I have reason to be concerned, or am I just overthinking things?

So far im happy with my phone. No you should not be worried.. Microsoft is more concerned about making money so they wont ditch us.. Don't worry you are safe here.
In other suggestions id say if you can afford, go for a 1GB Lumia to be future proof. I have a lot of memory problems while browsing so that'd be a suggestion. But for this budget this phone ftw...
I was an android user for 3 years myself..

Mostly the tabs reloading automatically. Its really pissy when you have opened up a page with lots of text and you have to scroll all the way to bottom. I thought it was a bug in my phone but then i "binged" out and found that a lot of other peeps with 512 MB phones are having same issue. It seems like windows closes the tabs or just makes cache and removes the page... When You open it, it reloads it like a new page.
Apart from that a lot of crashes sometimes. It does not necessarily means you'll have them too. I tend to push my phone so. :@

1. There is no true multitasking. So if you were doing a 500MB map download, if you went want to use another app, the download will pause
2. There is no concept of "files". Lets say you went to a link and downloaded a file called a548395.pdf. Its a book. If you open with adobe reader, it will be "cached" on your phone. However, if you install a different pdf reader and delete adobe reader, you have to re-download. Also remember, you cannot rename files
3. you cannot attach just any files. Only MS office and images and videos can be attached. For all kinds of files you have to first upload to skydrive and send link to people
The phone is fast and responsive, but also know limitations of the operating system. If these are too much for you, then the phone is not for you.

I wouldn't be overly concerned. The purchase of Nokia isn't going to be completed until sometime next year, so if (and it's a big if) there are any changes, they won't happen for a long time.
The 520 is a great phone (I've got one myself), but I don't think Microsoft buying Nokia will make any changes to the phone support.

I bought one when Amazon has them at $90. It's not a top of the line phone obviously, but at that price it's great value!
