    ... is un-repairable Really? So, they're telling me the hold-up has been them waiting for new phones to be in stock as they didn't want to replace it with a refurb. This all seems kind of odd. Oh well, 3 weeks with my 920 and now 3-ish weeks without. This still kind of sucks.

    you are complaining that you have to wait for a new phone because yours is bricked?

    Have you tried to revive the phone using the method posted in the forum? Not sure how you bricked yours, but worth the try.

    Yeah, I tried. You cannot use that method with Windows 8 and I wasn't replacing my PC's OS to try to fix my phone. lol Oh, and to congusano I'm not complaining about the new phone. I'm upset that it took this long and I didn't have any contact from Nokia until I initiated it.

    Yeah. you just have to right click the installer and set compatibility mode in the installer after you've installed VC 2010 and 2005. It works then.

    Not uncampassionate. Just seems like the op was told "we don't want to replace your phone with a refurb, but we'll have to wait a few weeks to send you a new one" What more could they have done?

    Have an adequate supply on hand.
    Family member had an iPhone a few years ago that had awful battery drain.
    iPhones were contrained at the time. Couldn't buy one new.
    They replaced it from inventory on the spot.
    And I am no fan of Apple.

    I am not happy about the wait but, the worst part about it to me is the fact they didn't communicate any of it to me until I contacted them.

    AT&T gave me the same "we're out of stock" run-around when my 920 had the crazy dust-under-screen and dusty camera issue. I asked for a replacement from another OEM, and they offered me an iPhone. I went for the 16 GB 8X instead, and don't regret it.

    Good luck resolving it. I suspect it can be un-bricked.
