    So I figured I'd say hello to the community while I wait for it to arrive.
    Very excited. I'm new to the OS so I'll be doing a great deal of lurking and also asking loads of newbie questions.
    Cheers!

    Thank you for the welcome!
    I'm seriously excited. It's H U G E and will take some getting used to but it's exactly what I want.
    I took a macro of my my order form and it just blew me away. INSANE camera.
    OS was very fluid and smooth. I've got 8.1 on my laptop, of course, so it was very familiar.
    I started my experience with smartphones with a pocket pc on Windows 5.0 and used windows devices up to the HTC Tilt on 6.5. Then I went to BlackBerry, iOS, and Android and I've been wanting to try out a WP for a very long time.
    I regret never having tried Symbian, but this is a great way to come back to Nokia.
    Very excited. Just found out the device already shipped so I'm totally wired.

    I have the same sexy beast, love this glossy red 1520! You'll get accustomed to the size. I now can't look at my old 920 without thinking it's a toy phone, lol.

    I don't want to get any scratches or dings on it, front or back.

    QBNKelt - You are coming from Android? I left Android to go to a 1520 and I won't look back. Love the 1520, especially with 8.1 . If you need assistance, please leave a note here, the folks are very helpful.

    Welcome to the club. I always carry my phone naked, but there are some good cases out there. Depends upon what you are looking for, really.

    The 1520 is great, I have a yellow one and it's been wonderful!
    Take a look at this case, very durable and not bad looking.

    Thank you! I'm actually running iOS, Android, and now WP. Also have a BB10 device but I'm retiring that one.

    I would love to run the device naked but I'm afraid of dropping or scratching it.

    Thanks for the tip on the case. 😊

    Well, welcome to WPCentral!

    I'm just going to ask why you went ahead and bought that 1520. For no reason at all. Yup.

    (By the way, if you really skipped out on Symbian, take solace on the fact that Belle FP2 is works a lot like Android. Also, you'll do good to either get one while second-hand prices don't blow you out of the water, or not at all.)

    To answer your question, I've been wanting to try a Lumia for a while but I've got three lines, not four. So I retired the Q10 and got the Lumia 1520.

    I use the coverbot, red of course, it's a nice case that protects the whole phone. Also has a kickstand, which I love for my movies on plane trips.

    I ordered one if those wallet cases, yes. And also an Incipio Feather and a screen protector.
    I know it's Gorilla Glas but still.....being careful.
    The phone will arrive today. Can't wait.
    Very exciting because this is a brand new OS for me.
