    Hi every1. I have a brand new lumia 1520 and i noticed that it has either a little dust under display or some dead pixels. The place of the dust/dead pixels is about 1-1.5 cm under the A of NOKIA. Do u have the same problem?? What should I do? Thanks for any help! : D

    Mine, too, has two specs of dust under the screen. I can't see them when the screen is on, so I don't really care. If you see them with the screen turned on, exchange the phone.

    To those who got their device replaced - did you notice issues with WiFi not working despite saying "connected" either before or after the replacement?
    Nope, never

    There is definitely a issue with the way the phone manages screen brightness.. With auto adjust off the device insist on dimming the screen so that you can never use it on high.. The device usually dims the screen immediately after it has been woken up.. This is very annoying because I like to use my device on max brightness.

    Well, I preordered mine from the MS store and received it on November 23rd. It has been working good until last Sunday.

    All of a sudden it will go back or to bing search. Sometimes the tiles will scroll up and down really fast. I can just set the phone on a table and after a few seconds it starts to do these weird things.

    This is my first purchase online from the MS store so I am trying to figure out how to get it exchanged. There is no MS store close to me. I will call them tomorrow since they are closed today.

    I got my Lumia 1520 today and its DEAD after 20minutes using the cellphone. WHAT A SHAME!

    - I order the Lumia 1520 without contract on Amazon four weeks ago and i paid the ship cost to Brazil and all courrier fees (about ~200usd, total 749usd for it). I started the cellphone and sign with all my accounts, and after that i was rearranging my tiles when the cellphone restart and go to infinite loop. I tried the hard reset pressing POWER; Volume Down; Volume Up; POWER; Volume Down-- after the gears the cellphone back to infinite loop and NOW the screen doesn't turn on, even with power cable.

    Hello guys... i have a question relating to the future-proof potential of the 1520

    Thought the 1520 is the most high spec-ed WP8 device out there and might also be one of the last REAL NOKIA phones,

    heres a few questions i would like to ask about its future potential..

    1.. When WP 8.1 is released will the device have full support ?

    2.. Are there chances microsoft may offer better support for the later to come microsoft branded phones and give lesser preference to the NOKIA branded phones ?

    3.. WP 8.1 is rumored to have on screen keys rather than physical ones, if future devices are launched without capacitive keys will older phones still support all features?

    I agree that there are no good answers to these questions, but speculations would be great since microsoft is well know to cut off support and not give upgrades

    so guys just answer away!


    R.I.P NOKIA :( .....

    while this definitely sucks, it can happen with any phone. I camped in front of an Apple Store for the the iPhone 3GS back in the day when I was still dumb enough to do something like that. After waiting about 8 hours, I finally had it, only to find out that it was DOA. Went back to the store and was told they're sold out. Waited an entire month for a replacement.

    so , if you connect your mobile to PC , then press the down key and power , then release the power and keep pressing the down until the exclamation mark appears , will your pc recognize ur mobile or not ?

    if you start both nokia care suite and Nokia Software Update , will any of them recognize ur mobile in this mode ?
    I feel so angry and sorry for ur case , this is totally unfair , Nokia should replace it
    publish ur problem on this form as well

    I have a bug when you shut off phone and turn on every time I get a message "SD card problem"
    There maybe something wrong with this SD card. Insert it into a computer to try and fix it.
    I tried putting in a computer checked out fine. Tried other SD card all different sizes and the same startup message. Everything is OK. Bad bug.
    My friends 1520 does the same thing.

    1. After initial setup, the phone played no sound whatsoever. Launching Xbox Music caused a harsh crackle from the speaker. Fixed with a hard reset.
    2. Touch screen issues as others have previously stated. Changed sensitivity and did a hard reset. Still an issue, but I am learning to adapt.
    3. Screen brightness dims ever so slightly at random times...maybe a 10% decrease at most.

    Other than those three things, I'm pretty happy with the phone.
    Exactly❕ The screen dimming bug is annoying.. And, the 1520 gives the the term "Super sensitive touch" a whole new meaning...

    Has anyone noticed the little rubber band between the screen and the polycarbonate body scuffing? I only noticed it on my phone because as my finger was sliding down I felt something there, but it was the rubber that had actually marked. Strange.
