    I had the choice of all colors, even Yellow. It was a chore not picking black, I already know I'll get the business from my two coworkers who are diehard blackberry users. Best news is that i'd thought id have to give up my 920 because I'm only 1 year into my contract. So I dropped the insurance because I'll have my 920 to fall back on and that the insurance was $125 to replace a phone if something happened to it. It was also a tough choice to not pick the 1020 as well. I plan on getting, at minimum, a 16gb SD card but really want to max it out with a 64gb one.

    I hope you'll enjoy your new toy! I know I'm really enjoying mine. The battery life is great for me. I've been getting through the entire day with 50-60% battery life left at night when I connect it to the charger.

    Hopefully, size won't be an issue for you, as a few users have had concerns or issues with that aspect. I haven't had any problems with holding the phone to my ear for a call (and I'm female).

    My friends at work have teased me a little, though. Some have referred to it as my "Helen Keller phone" because of its size, but they all have iPhones. I prefer to think that they're just jealous, lol.

    I find this phone to be fast, smooth, and the display is great! I haven't gotten around to taking pictures yet, but the ones I've seen on this forum have looked great.

    Again, enjoy!

    My white L1520 is definitely eye catching. I was in heaven when I first held it after taking it out of the box.

    love it so far. put a 16gb micro sd card in that I had here at the house. I will get a 64gb Class 10 one though. asking for that for Christmas.
    the screen is stunning. I haven't had any problems that others have talked about yet. I certainly will put it through its paces before the next 14 days are up.
    Obviously I'll deal with it, but my one complaint, if it is a complaint, would be the buttons on the side seem thin and not as nice as on the 920's. I find myself searching for them.

    well, my volume of while using any Music apps is all the way up and the volume button doesn't work to lower the sound. did a factory reset with no luck. called AT&T last night. taking the phone to the repair center to exchange it. I asked the AT&T rep if he was SURE they would have phones for replacement and he said YES... the nearest Corporate store didn't have any for me to exchange so, we will see..

    Tired of waiting almost 2 weeks for att to ship my red 1520, so I called and canceled order.
    Went straight to Fry's and walked out with red for $79.
    On top of that Fry's only adds sales tax onto the sale price and not the stupid full retail price.
    In the end, I ended up paying $86.47 for everything!
