    None of the glass screen protectors are really available to Lumia devices as they have the gorilla glass curved at the edges of them. There is one for a 1520 on amazon but from pictures I see it is sorta sloppy since it doesn't adhere to the edges. If you want to get a screen protector you would have better luck with urethane ones such as zagg, skinomi, and armorsuit.

    I'm still really curious to see this BLACK 1520 they're sending me tomorrow. I'd like to assume that since they're sending me a 1520 as a replacement for a 1020, that they might send me the Black 32GB model? I'm really going to hate having only 16GB if that's what I'm getting.

    And if this 1520 has stock 8.0 on it with Nokia Black firmware, at least I won't have to "roll back" to be able to get Cyan!

    Interested to see if it'll come with Cyan out of the box. I wonder when the 1520's that they sell at the AT&T store will start coming with 8.1/Cyan preinstalled?

    And I'm still wondering which method would be best to get the 1520 up to speed with my current setup. Clean install, or restore this cluttered backup? I have a lot more than 16GB of apps installed on my 1020 as of current...

    So I guess I should rename this thread and get one of the mods to move it... to the 1520 section? Or to the "idiots that drop their phones" section?

    Or maybe I'll just start a new thread.. though I do like this one. I'm gonna miss my 1020 and feeling like I belong in the 1020 photography group. :(

    My Wife's 1020 screen got shattered too recently and we didn't have any insurance on that.
    So I found the screen with the digitizer on ebay for $130
    - found a toolkit @ Amazon : 16-piece Precision Screwdriver Set Repair Tool Kit for iPad, iPhone, & Other Devices - Star Drive Screwdrivers - Amazon.com
    - and replaced the screen myself by following this video:
    .

    Its super easy and it took me 15 min to replace the whole thing.

    Of course this is always an option. The DIY method always comes at some risk though, like no warranty (the insurance replacement has a 12 month). And how long till you have the parts, and the tools, and have it all back together good as new?

    My another Two cents worth for Ed talks to himself thread.

    I had got a grey import on 1020 with 1 year warranty. 3 months later the loudspeaker carcked it. Tried all the resets +1 didnt work. Falshed to Au version HK version nothing worked. I thought If I need to send it by mail to another city and they claim that it was water damage no point. Took it to the nearest shop, got it checked out they said Speaker is busted.(Duh) Waited for one week for the part to be flown in I drive back to the shop only to be told that the entire back panel has to be replaced. Oh well one more week nothing happened. So I tried another shop he said the Board is faultyat which I thought how can he say that in 15 mins just asking about the history and 10 mins of looking at the inside. Well anyway the part arrived at the first shop. I go there only to be told oh the board is faulty. Grrrrr So in all this confusion I lost like another month and half, I had no choice but to contact the seller who obviously said I need to mail it out to another city. Skeptic that I was I already verified it with the first repair center that there was no water damage. The center that I mailed it to needed 2- 3 weeks to look at it he followed the same elimination process and the seller told me what I already knew. At this point they tell me that it will be sent to another repair center to be looked at (ofcource it will take another 3-4 weeks. Grrr In the mean time I negotiated with the seller about getting a new phone seeing that It was hardly 3 months old and also because I was F*&*ed around so much. He said It will be done only if the second centre couldnt fix it by the end of the 4th week. On the last day of the 4th week I was asked to send my mailing address( i think they were buying time) they mailed it out the next day and I got it the day after.
    turned it on only to find that the problem remianed. i checked to see if the board was replaced and it was. but still no sound. I even opened it up to see if the connectors were all hooked up which it was but nothing happened. The reason I say they bought time was that the Welcome SMS was just 20 hours old. which means they seller when he told me that it was fixed, it wasnt. He asked me to send it to RMA dept in the same city which was done. Only to be told that I hadnt mailed him the accessories!!! I wasnt asked to. So I send the whole lot back except the grip(which btw was in the same box as the phone) as it was an added extra in the order. I get a brand new phone a few days later from HK only to find that the accessories were missing!!! I think the new phone was to go to the RMA dept where they would throw in my accessories and send it back claiming it to be all new. I was furious as I wasted time and money to send accessories only to get back the same stuff? I asked him why and till date no Answer. I coudnt give a Rats Ar$3 if I dont get new accessories. Just let me know. Why try to pull a shifty only to be caught without explanation?

    Another two cents to the Ed and Skamath thread :P

    So in all I prefer not to send the phone to any mailing address even if the company is a reputable one. I rather have it in a shop with a person in front of me doing what he is to be doing best and not pulling any shifties. I got my phone for around half price than what shops here sell and yet paid almost double if not more than what they sell for in the US market( US and AU $ almost equal at that time) Go Figure. In exchange all of 3 months of waiting travelling to shops a few times, mailing to addresses which I dont like, have to pay for mailing only to try to make you believe you are getting the best.

    Wow that sucks that Asurion still considers the 1020 on AT&T a Tier 3 device and would charge $199 for a replacement. I've had my 920 for 13 months now and it's still a Tier 2 device so a replacement would be $125, but my phone was initially free so I doubt I'd pay that deductible at this point. Probably just buy a $50 Lumia 520 to get me by for a while if I had to replace my 920.

    Also, in case you did not know, AT&T and Asurion now have this new Declining Deductible discount. Depending on how long you have had your device, the deductible drops over time. This goes into effect Aug 1, 2014.

    More on this here:
    "Effective 8/1/14, you may be eligible for the Declining Deductible discount and up to 50% off of the standard deductible..."

    Thanks for the post and the heads up about this.. too bad it's not 8/1/14 yet.

    And I guess that's why they're sending me a 1520 as a replacement? Idk... I'm still kinda saddened by this "downgrade" in camera. I really loved the 1020's camera.. I may just have to complain about it at my local at&t store and see if they'll give me a discount on my bill at least.. ;)

    Again, I might be on the lookout for another 1020, just for my camera needs, if the 1520 doesn't fulfill that spot.


    No FedEx truck yet....

    I'd at least complain if the 1520 is the 16GB version instead of the 32GB one. Especially if your previous phone had 32GB.

    Good luck!

    The FedEx truck has delivered my 1520... yep, it's the RM-940 16GB version... I'm currently getting the Cyan/8.1 update and everything activated etc etc ...

    Might be going up to the AT&T store shortly to complain about this "1020 replacement's" shortcomings... Where's my 32GB of storage? Where's my 41MP sensor and Xenon flash?? lol

    Oh... the SIM card door on the side of this 1520 is kinda mesed up... so I WILL be definitely paying the AT&T store a visit today. I'm NOT going to settle for this at least. They're going to at the VERY least give me a new SIM card door of another 1520!

    Is it a sim tray or just a flap that covers a port for the sim card? I was too lazy when I got a replacement 928 (before it broke and ended up keeping my original one and sent the replacement back) to put the sim in the other tray and noticed that the trays had the phone's info such as imei and serial #. So I ended up taking the sim out of one to the other tray to keep the trays matching the phones.

    Well, I just got back front the AT&T store. They said I'd have to call Asurion, for any complaints about the device I received.. although they did swap out the sim tray for me. At least that's fixed. :|

    Not sure yet.. I'm still undecided. I finally finished reinstalling all my apps and fixing all my settings the way they were on the 1020.

    I have indeed run into the 1520 bug that registers a scroll gesture as a touch..... Very annoying! And it appears the Cyan firmware has NOT fixed this...

    Now for some camera testing..
    07-28-2014 04:20 PM
  25. Ed Boland's Avatar
    So I've decided that the 1520 takes good enough pictures for me. The Cyan firmware evidently fixes a lot of things in this regard, so I'm happy there... and I can buy a micro SD card for my storage (or lack thereof)...

    I think all in all, I'm happy with my replacement phone. The improvements in speed and the beautiful screen make it a worthy upgrade!

    Now... To find a decent looking case for this bad boy...
