    I am able to use internet sharing on 8.1 without ever having to do the keyboard Hack in 8.0 prior to upgrade. This might be hit or miss, I had to use the hack on my 1320 but it looks like the 1520 can go straight to 8.1 without any work around.

    Bizarre..I am on 8.1 on my 1520.3 and no luck with the spanish keyboard trick. Should I use the foreign sim trick? I was hoping to have a solution with the access point app remaining

    Thanks, John. I made a note to go back to #674 when the phone arrives. :-)

    You have to do the Spanish keyboard trick while in 8.0 before upgrading to 8.1 You can only use the foreign SIM trick on unlocked AT&T phones b/c they allow you to edit apn settings manually whereas factory unlocked variants don't.

    Interesting. So you never had to install the Spanish keyboard at any point? And was internet sharing working before you updated to 8.1 or did you just update without trying it first? Also, are you running on T-Mobile?

    Well, after days of going back and forth about which color to order and coming to peace about the price I'm on the wait list for a yellow version at B&H. I hope they get them in before June, that's another reason I almost went with the white version.

    I did NOT do the keyboard hack prior to upgrading to 8.1. As I said this could be hit or miss, I'm currently using T-Mobile USA. My 1320 required the hack however and carried over to 8.1.

    I found a place that has them in stock but the price is steep--$775 (Canadian) + $40 shipping.That's around $750 U.S. total. I really want this phone but I think I'll hang in with my $629 B&H order. If your budget is unlimited, the place is OmegaCell.

    I can't recall exactly but I recall a instance a few Nokia WP phones ago where installing Access Point actually screwed up internet sharing.

    Hows the 8.1 upgrade doing for anyone? When I first got mine I upgraded it and the phone did not like it. I see there is an upgrade so might try it again with some good news.

    So far no big issues. A few bugs, but hopefully today's update will fix them. Not sure yet. Time will tell.

    I saw that. Patience will eventually pay off my man. I've learned that impatience is financially expensive. Hang in there.

    I doubt seriously this is something AT&T deserves credit for.

    I've tweeted @Nokia several times. I have received only a single response to which I replied that I had looked at NewEgg, B&H, Negri. I guess they don't want to sell phones.

    Was that tweet in reference to when will they have new shipments going out to retailers?

    No, it was in reference to that I wanted to buy an RM-938 and couldn't find anyone selling it.

    I don't understand that now that Microsoft owns Nokia, why isn't the Microsoft Store selling these superior versions rather than the sad AT&T version?

    Does anyone know if that green 1520 Nokia was showing off at build is an AT&T exclusive? I know it's coming to AT&T soon, but I didn't remember them mentioning exclusivity. It would be nice if it was also released as an RM-938 as well. I doubt it though. I don't think I've seen a red RM-938 anywhere (correct me if I'm wrong). It's a good sign though for those of you that are worried about them being permanently discontinued. If Nokia (Microsoft) are pushing the 1520 in new colors, then they are far from done manufacturing them. It's possible that the acquisition has caused a temporary manufacturing/distribution "hiccup".

    The same reason they don't sell the 1320. It's not meant for the US market. the 1520.3 is perfect for the US market (T-Moble, AT&T, and any other GSM carrier), but because of how messed up the carrier-OEM relationship is in the US, they can't offer certain unlocked devices officially because of exclusivity agreements. :/

    You would think that type of thinking would be coming to an end now that AT&T is "relaxing" the "must buy here" thinking. Guess we have T-Mobile to thank for that?

    No doubt. T-Mobile has been awesome for the US carrier system. It'll only get better from here on out, but there is still a long way to go.
