    Bought this from NewEgg. Came fast and was only after it shipped did I see the extra 25$ off. I received the phone and updated to 8.1, then hard reset phone to install backup of my 920. Phone works great except data. Had to put in settings into access point manually. Now everything works fine except tethering and I did the Spanish keyboard workaround. Still loving the phone and I'm not sending it back.

    Thanks. I think I may keep it stock besides my 925 has 8.1 and work great. The RM-940 I will sell with 8.1as is since I have no issues.
    BTW the link didn't work for me and the other link that shows does nothing. Would you mind re attaching it..
    just go to Nokia.com and search Nokia install tool I believe.

    Since Newegg CS mentioned to me last week they don't know when they will get another stock, those could be the ones that people refused delivery in order to buy the yellow ones. For Newegg if you refuse delivery you'll get a full refund and no return charge.

    I'm afraid the sudden stock Negri got back in white and yellow last week are similar. Or possibly units with touch screen sensitivity issues that people returned. I haven't seen any reports of issues with the Newegg units, on the other hand.

    I would think those would be sold as open boxed if they are returned for screen issues or sent back to Nokia at least.

    I'd hope so, but considering their official return policy states that if you have a defective item that can't be returned, they exchange it for a refurbished version of the same item, nothing would really surprise me.

    Is the current preview version of 8.1 really not working well with 1520.3? I just received my replacement phone from Newegg and I'm still contemplating if I should go ahead and install the preview.

    I'm in the same situation. I just got mine today but I don't want to put 8.1 on when it seems like there are a bunch of issues. It would be nice to hear a few more success stories before putting 8.1 on.

    Also because this is an unlocked phone we should be getting the cyan firmware update as soon as Nokia pushes it out, which should be much quicker than waiting for the carriers, correct? Has anyone had experience with updates on an unlocked Windows Phone?

    I'm not sure about the 1520.3 and 8.1 but with my AT&T 1520 it works great. I did turn WiFi Sense off to help battery life but other than that I'm loving it.

    White is out of stock again at Newegg. Not too surprising as it didn't seem as though they got a random new shipment of just the white, but rather sold some returned (or unsigned for) units.

    I had a lot of issues with my 1520.3 when I upgraded to 8.1. Also could not get LTE. I went to ATT.com and they had my phone as a track phone. Got that ironed out and now LTE. the network was not recognizing the imei #. No more "H". Now for 8.1.......

    Just took the risk of installing 8.1 on my Lumia 1520 RM-938 from Newegg that I'm using on T-Mobile and no problems! :D

    Cool!

    Did you have a nano SIM in your previous phone or did you have T-mobile provision you a new one?

    When you say it worked, does that mean you get LTE as well?

    What makes you think they sold returned items as new?

    Anyway, it was probably me who snagged the last white one. I ordered it just a few hours ago. Negri let me down by taking my order for a In-Stock yellow one that they turned around two days later saying that it was backordered instead.

    I came from an iPhone 5S so I just took the nano sim out of that and put it into the 1520. And yes, said I was getting LTE. Did a speed test and was getting just about 20 mbps.

    Nice.

    I'll be cutting my SIM down to nano size. I ran into this issue before not getting my unlocked phone recognized (Nokia 808).

    Purely speculation on my part based on only getting stock in of white (with the rest remaining out of stock), and in such limited quantities. That doesn't necessarily imply that anything is wrong with the phone. I read somewhere on these forums that some people may have ordered white (wanting yellow), but then Newegg got yellow in stock so they either sent the white units they ordered back or refused to sign for them.

    I'm a bit conflicted between yellow and white myself, but am leaning towards yellow. I may just be a little bored of this yellow 920 I've had for a year and a half.

    Enjoy yours, and let us know how everything goes with it!

    I wanted the yellow badly but had to settle for white. I really hope it's as satisfying as people say.

    On the bright side, now I don't have to agonize over what color case since white goes with everything.
