    Sure you can buy unlocked 925s but so far I haven't seen any fully compatible with T-Mo frequencies.

    I do have to admit that I am disappointed. Mainly because I see storage cut in half. I will use the cloud extensively as I already do, but it would have been nice to see that the phone storage allows room to grow my application selection. On the other hand I have to admit, that much space on my phone is wasted on apps I downloaded, used and forgot about after a while. So I will probably be able to deal with 16GB. Wireless charging is second nature for me, but I can deal without. maybe the flip cover will eventually have wireless charging integrated and then I am back in the game, since I planned on getting this cover anyway. I will get the 1520, because the 6 inch screen will enable me to use my sharepoint forms in a much more effective way and this is really what I am looking for in this phone. My disappointment is less with the actual phone, but with the way AT&T just makes the decision about what we as customers get knowing that there is better out there.... Well, it is what it is and I will not be able to change it. There is also the option of getting the international version and I really thought about it, but after all, the price tag is at a point where I don't believe I will spend that much money, knowing that phones evolve fast and that in a year or two there will likely be a new device fitting my needs even better...

    I'm kind of disappointed, but not as much as some of you. I currently have a 520, which I still consider an upgrade from my 900. So 16 GB is positively huge to my current 8 GB. And I haven't already invested into wireless charging, so that is a non-issue for me. Granted, I wouldn't turn down a 32 GB, Qi charging included model. :-)

    I am dissapointed that they haven't come out with a release date yet. Nexus comes out today and phones come out a week later. Same model with iPhone. These fools need to learn

    When the 1520 was announced I was ready to sign up and add a line for what was spec'd as a fantastic phone. Now that ATT has had their way and removed the wireless charging and halfed the memory from 32GB to 16Gb ... no way. Not gonna happen. Love my 920 and will stick with it. Sorry ATT but you turned what was a fantastic device into a loser. My original Samsung Focus had 16GB and a microSD slot. Thanks for setting the way back machine on 4 years ago ATT. Jeez.

    Yeah... because, quad core, 1080P phones with 2 gb of ram running on an LTE network were available 4 years ago. The wireless charging was removed because it's not PMA and I'm fairly certain storage was halved to bring an impressive, large screened phone in under the price of the other ones. Sure, I'd like more storage but for those that don't need it they're not paying for it and if you need more storage you can buy a card (cheaply I might add).

    no, your original Samsung Focus had 8Gb with a card slot that could be expanded and acted like built in storage. The great thing about that phone is apps could be stored on the card. We can't even do that today.

    Very confusing. Rarely do I find myself in the position of loving a product (NOKIA Windowsphones) but having nothing but contempt for the manufacturer(MS) and the distributor (ATT). ATT knows that the customer has no choice but to get the newest Nokia WP from them...no matter how badly they bastardize the product,,, and Microsoft continues to award them sole distribution rights. I read a lot of these forums and I cannot remember any positive comments about ATT practices in customer service. But why bother with customer service when you have a monopoly. I thought that our gov't put a stop to that years ago. I have a Nokia 920 32 gb phone. I chose it initially because of the amount of storage. Came to love it. Then had to put up with ATT's neglect in getting out updates that should not have been left up to them. You will never see iPhone updates dictated by the carrier. Why does Microsoft insist they are committed to making WP succeed but give ATT the power to sabotage a good product. As long as this practice continues WP will remain a very distant 3rd in the mobile phone market.

    There is still the possibility that AT&T will offer both 16GB and 32GB versions of the 1520. The only thing we know for sure is that it there is definitely a 16GB version since one of our members had one in hand. A lot of people will have wasted a lot of energy complaining for nothing if AT&T winds up offering a 32GB version too. That would let those who are satisfied with 16GB get it at a lower price. Not holding out a lot of hope but not ruling it out either.

    So that MS can buy the Nokia phone division cheap. Duh. A win-win for MS and Elop.

    Microsoft makes the software.
    Nokia makes the phone and markets it.
    Microsoft currently has nothing to do with releasing or dealing with carriers.

    I'm not eligible for an upgrade till next March, so I'll see what's out at that point. By then, there could easily be another Nokia device that has better specs than the 1520.
    same here my upgrade date slipped from October to March when ATT bumped upgrades back to 24 months. I'll be watching and palying with the 1520 when it comes out but probably holding off on the 1520 until after my upgrade date. If nothing else comes out will have yo wait and see. I'm thinking of going to play with the note 3 to check out the size.

    My contract is up the day after Turkey Day, and my kids are up in late December. So, I am in the consumer group this would be aimed at:

    -I am Windows Phone. BB10 is a blast and I love it, but WP is building a complete ecosystem and I like it. MS is stable. I am 90% sure I am sticking with WP.

    -I have had Samsung, HTC, and Nokia. To me, there is no option. Nokia is the only way to go.

    -I do like the bigger screens overall. The 4.7" on the Titan series was nice. My wife's Note's 5" screen is pretty good, and I do not find using it as much as a pain as I thought.

    -I am a current AT&T customer, and here in rural Illinois, there is only AT&T and Verizon. Big Red is more expensive, so I tend to lean to AT&T.

    Add it all up, and I should be a 1520 target. The 6" screen may be too much, but I am willing to look.

    No wireless charging?? Okay, a little less girth.

    Only 16GB of memory? Sigh. I am sorry, but internal memory is better then expanded. My L900 is jacked full of music/podcasts/apps. I really want 32GB storage.

    Not a deal breaker, but asking me to sign up for 2 more years with a lesser spec device? Sure makes me want to see what Verizon has to offer. And if I am willing to look, as a WP user and a AT&T customer, why would this 1520 option attract phablet users of other OS or other carriers, which is what Nokia/AT&T are trying to do?

    I doubt it. They would need to create yet another SKU (32GB w/o wireless charging).

    I doubt it too but I did see that a later 32GB version has at least reached "leaked" rumor status on one site. The Nokia site only lists the 16GB version for AT&T right now. If people can wait it might make sense to give it a little time to rule it out completely before they go with a 16GB version. A lot of people don't care about 16GB as long as there is an SD card though. Personally, I like as much storage as I can get.

    I think the removal of the wireless charging annoys me more than the space reduction. And the idea of AT&T ordering a cheapened 1520 causes me to ask questions about other things that may have been cheapened (screen? something else?).

    The storage is a matter of a different chip and the wireless charging is just as simple as peeling a coil off the housing. A different screen would have to sourced from a supplier causing Nokia to spend more money and inventory more parts. The sky is not falling chicken little. lol

    An extra 16GB flash costs about $4 for a large OEM. The Qi charging circuit is likely around $0.50. The Nokia 1520 is a flagship phone and delivering anything less to the market is a failure. Especially when the cost differential is less than 5 bucks.

    Nokia's buffoon of a CEO, Elop, should be fired for his inability to (a) deliver product to market on a timely basis and (b) deliver "as designed" product to market. The money Elop wasted on doing the vapor launch in Abu Dhabi could have been spent subsidizing AT&T to offer 32GB/Qi on the Lumia 1520. And then we are left wondering when the 1520 and 2520 will even ship. That huge launch and no product? No availability dates? No prices? Another flop from Eflop.

    Elop is nothing more than a clueless moron in a suit. After the merger is through he should have to dress up as a clown and entertain guests in the Microsoft lobby.

    Elop is not a moron, the Nokia board members letting him get away with his scam are. Elop is directing Nokia to design and advertise phones but not sell them, so Microsoft will buy the phone division cheap and he gets his bonus for the deal.
