    Finally got my replacement unit. NCC is a bit slow in the process but it's all worth it. Never had to surrender my unit and they even sent me a loaner unit for testing and comparison. The replacement unit does get better signal reception for data unlike my previous one. Quite happy again although I was still happy with the original unit except for the data issue. I was finally able to install my full body skin as I couldn't do that before due to waiting for the outcome of the investigation on my issue with the unit. All in all good experience with going to the actual center. Fast and friendly. They also mentioned opening again a NCC at sm north within the year.

    what color do you have? Post your experience with your replacement device. it's been two weeks now and still no random reboots.

    I have the black one. The replacement is also black since I made sure it's what I'll be getting. So far so good as my data connection is better although I've to admit I think the 925 had quicker lte reception. I haven't had any touch response issue either. No reboots now or with the old unit

    Hi Guys,

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to ask this, but, how is Nokia Here Maps/Drive here in the Phils using your L1520(or any Lumia)?
    Is it as good as Waze or atleast usable here and it is updated in urban areas?

    TIA :)

    paid 40usd plus tax and had it sent to a relative in the states who went home last month. the back is of the same material our phones use so i guess it's plastic. none so far in the philippines for sale even in nokia stores but you can check out the 925 wireless charging shells and that's what it is made of. shape is even the same as it clips the four corners of the phone. front is of some rubbery material for the outside and a felt/velvet type cloth inside so the screen won't be scratched.

    Nokia store in SM North Edsa. Just ask a sales rep, they already know it. If you'll buy using credit card, only 2 Valid IDs are the requirements.
    thanks for the info. I have a question though, last Feb 21, I checked Nokia Store in Glorietta and when I inquired about Lumia 1520 with globe plan 999 the sales lady told me that I can only avail that if I have an existing globe plan. now that I read all your posts here it made me think that maybe the sales lady got their promo wrong and there is no need at all for an existing globe plan. any clarification on this? thank you in advance :)

    if you mean the official CP-623 cover, it's not sold locally. i bought mine from the US. thru fb there are those selling Nillkin and Tudia cases but they don't have a cover. Not sure if there are already other alternatives.

    thanks man :) so online mo sya binili? just got my unit last Friday :) I love it, sobrang smooth and walang hang or lag or reboot na nangyayare. even connectivity with wifi and data is ok. the best part is the camera, may not be the same as 1020 but it still takes good quality photos :) the only thing I couldn't figure out is why can't I send a photo using Bluetooth to my windows 8.1 laptop even if i'm already connected to it.

    damn..thinking about switching to SMART in a postpaid plan. I am testing LTE via prepaid sim.
    My neighbor is fetching 4G signal from his LTE wifi device. On my phone it barely gets 4G. Yesterday I used my SMART prepaid sim have taken it for a spin then stayed in SM-Fairview. It is picking 4G signal but it won't keep that long so I think my phone is also suffering same issue as multo's first unit.
    I am still thingking whether should I report this to Nokia, except for the SMART connectivity issue I have no other complains.
