    I actually had a coworker laugh aloud when I showed him the 1520 and he held it.
    He did admit however than the screen was gorgeous and would be great for movies and surfing.

    Haha. I seem to get the same reaction from almost everyone that checks out my phone. I think by now I've become accustomed to its size but I remember my very first reaction when I grabbed a hold of it for the very first time and I completely understand everyone's reaction to the size of the device. Generally, everyone who has handled my phone though all love the screen and the build quality.

    Its big but what I noticed watching videos is that there are even bigger phones like the Sony Z Ultra but no one seems to be going on about how huge that device is. Seems the size is just another bash point people have picked on because its a Windows Phone.

    The frustrating part is paying next day air on newegg and getting it four days later. It shipped out on Friday and stayed in Kentucky for three days. It just now departed to make it to Oregon.....

    if they sent it USPS Priority mail, it would have made it Today Min.
    I just placed an order with Newegg on Saturday also shipping to Oregon but the order still says "Status: Packaging". How long did it take for yours to update the shipping info?

    NewEgg seems to be consistently screwing up on shipping. I placed an order on Thursday for 2nd Day Air. It went out today ground. Several folks have had similar experiences. I regret cancelling my B&H order.

    Two days 48 Hours total. What I hear about Newegg, very possible to get updates sunday night or Monday morning.

    Just an update, since it looks like I was one of the first to get it on here...

    Still going strong! swap back and forth between my s5 and it. I much prefer the UI of WP8 but i really miss 'real' google apps (keep/drive mainly).

    Looking forward to an official 8.1 release...battery life is still insane. The S5 leaves something to be desired regardless of reviews (live in a semi low single area, the constant searching kills the battery on the s5, not so much the 1520).

    Really wish I could find a tpu bumper case, I want to show off the matte white..

    It just updated to "Shipped" status on Newegg. tracking # shows it actually left the warehouse at 4:00 PM but did not update on the website until 9:00 PM. So I guess they are a little slow on updating. But it should arrive tomorrow according to UPS.

    I originally ordered a black one from B&H and I got the Incipio NGP black case for it. But when I reordered from NewEgg, I got the yellow one. I also wish there was a case that would still give me a raised lip on the front but let the color show through. I found some links for transparent plastic cases but either the seller is in India or the links are broken.

    Ha! When I ordered my Nexus One, I missed delivery and had to drive cross town to pick it up--it was a signature required item. The last phone I ordered (Mota G for my wife) was left on the porch. Yikes! I just assume make that drive then hope it survives several hours at my front door.

    I had an incident with NewEgg late last year where my order was in Austin, but it sat there for 3 days. NewEgg claimed that it wasn't actually in Austin and that the weather had delayed it in Memphis. Probably one of the few times that NewEgg REALLY PISSED me off. Wouldn't refund my expedited shipping even though talking to the UPS guy they should be able to do that.

    Mmmm, ok. Sounds like BS, but I could be wrong. I thought every entry in the UPS delivery schedule was an actual physical on location scan.

    Mine has been delivered already so now I'm trying to figure out how to get the new Sim. Is it possible to stop by the AT&T store on my way to work to get a new sim and use my current phone while at work? I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about it so everything gets provisioned properly yet still use my current phone tonight?

    I'm pretty sure that's a no. Your number and a sim maintain a one-to-one relationship. If you went the trim+adapter route, you could switch while you play.

    I also ran into this exact situation.

    My suggestion: stop by AT&T store and pick up an unactivated SIM (nano SIM for Lumia 1520) for your AT&T account and new phone. When you're ready, at a later time, call AT&T customer service and transfer your service from the old SIM to the new one. Use a land line for the customer service call, because when the new SIM is activated, the old SIM is immediately deactivated.

    For those AT&T stores that don't want to give out unactivated SIMs, you can also get the new SIM to work with your current phone, and get that working and provisioned while you're at the store. Then transfer the new SIM from current to the new phone at a later time.

    You'll likely need a SIM adapter for the new nano SIM to work with your current phone, which the AT&T stores don't carry(!). But Walmart and Target carry the "AT&T SIM kit for GoPhones" which include adapters for $10. Pricey, but what else can you do if you need it the same day?

    I don't recommend SIM cutting. Nano SIMs are supposed to be a bit thinner than the standard or micro versions, so it is possible cut SIMs may not fit properly in some nano SIM phones.

    Thank you, thats exactly what I did. I have the new sim in the car and the rep said to call customer care with the 1520 IMEI number when I'm ready to switch. Now watch tonight drags.

    This is my first post although I have been watching this thread and others here for a few weeks.

    After going back and forth about the size, I ordered a black 1520.3 from B&H last night and it has been shipped already. Should be here Thursday, and I will be using it on T-Mobile.

    I am upgrading from a 2+ year old Lumia 710. Should be exciting!
