I'm afraid Swype is not available for the Nokia Lumia 521.

The phone does have an excellent software keyboard - with a bar for predictive text that sits just above the keyboard.

Hope this helps.

T mobile is non contract now, If your in a place that's still doing contract, leave it alone. I suggest you buy the phone outright, then go online and see what plans are to your liking and then call them to do a SIM Card swap if you do not have a micro SIM in you current phone, the new phone you bought will come with one free inside the box, and then talk about the plan you want with them and don't let them con you into getting things you don't need, like insurance. and call using another phone that your not changing.

It really depends. If you're with T-Mobile I'd call 611 and talk to an account rep to find out. I switched from AT&T and with two smartphones I'm saving about $50-60 a month.

Yes you do, this is more so for back up. It takes only seconds to make an account if you dont have one. You can use an xbox account if you have one though.

Yes, I was able to easily sync my Google calendar with this phone. It's very simple to do in the accounts settings. The stock calendar isn't my favorite, but there are some very good options in their application store as replacements.

Only 8GB on board, and some of that is taken up by the OS (about 1GB, leaving you with about 7 free.) But, it can handle up to a 64gb micro sd card for photos, music, files, etc.

It does not, but it does have a very good keyboard that can predict your next word. You could get to a point where you were just choosing predictions and not having to type out your entire sentence. Also, it's voice keyboard input is very good.

But no, it does not come with Swype, and you cannot download and replace the keyboard with Swype either.
