    Well, the unicorn has arrived, and I'm in the process of setting it up! It may have been sold as used, but it is in great condition! I see no scratches or dings! I'll keep B&H in mind for future smartphone purchases.

    Now I'm installing the 8.1 dev update. There is no way I was going back to plain ol' WP8!

    Good for you!

    Well, I've finally gotten my first dead unicorn (didn't even get to me; a very rare occurrence apparently) refunded by NewEgg after UPS updated it.10391456_10152256139019211_6482017546988846652_n.jpg

    Ordered from NewEgg again (right image) Right now, it's in Ontario, CA! I live in LA so that's very near. :D It's supposed to arrive on Monday but it might get here tomorrow.

    On another note, for those of you who have had the Lumia for a while, what's the best deal for a memory card in Amazon? I'm thinking 64 GB. Also, I've seen some posts here that say 128 GB works. Is that for real? If so, does it perform well (no lags while video taking or saving, etc), and would you kindly post a link. Thank you! :D

    I went with a 128gb and it's working fine--no lags that I've noticed.

    I ordered my Nokia Lumia 1520.3 from Newegg on Friday and paid for next day. It arrived at my office on Monday, unit was sealed. No issues with set up.

    I was expecting some ordeal with Newegg but everything is good

    Now to wait for CYAN I suppose

    Glad your transaction went so well. My overnight shipping took eight days.

    Ok, is anyone else upset that AT&T apparently has released the 8.1 Cyan update but we're still waiting? Updates was a big reason I went with this version. I've been using the Cyan update app to check the release schedule, but when I enter Spain for the region nothing comes up.

    We have the country variant for Latin America not Spain. As for which specific country in Latin America I'm not sure.

    AT&T (nor any other carrier) has anything to do with updates on the 1520.3.

    Edit: I'm slow. Now I get what you're saying. Yes I am upset that the carrier released the firmware before the CV was released. AT&T no less. :(

    Yup, I'm pretty upset. I do like the phone but I've already been thinking of ditching it for a 930 because of the swipe/tap bug. This doesn't help any internal "keep your 1520.3" argument I might have.

    Is anyone really anticipating a great difference once you get Cyan if you are already running 8.1? I don't think it's going to be that significant--at least not for the way I use the phone. It would be different if I was stuck on 8.0 waiting for 8.1. So I'm not stressing--it comes when it comes.

    Part of my attitude comes from six years of Android use where I eagerly waited the next release. Then I would play with the new features, say "how cool that I can do this", and then rarely use some of the "gee whiz" features (like split screen). Don't get me wrong--I want to see the update; however, I'm still very happy with this phone and have no plans to change anytime soon.

    Has the Lumia 1520.3 received the 8.1 update? Heard that it's not being pushed out to people who have the Developer Preview installed but has anyone with 8.0 received the update?

    I was just about to post and ask if anyone with the 1520.3 has rolled back to 8.0. If anyone has, is Cyan available for you?

    I'll give a try when I get some time later.

    Well, after half a month's wait, I finally got my yellow unicorn. I had to pick it up from UPS.

    I've never upgraded to 8.1. I just used the Spanish hack to enable tethering. So, right now, my version is the latest black. there's no update just yet. For reference, I got my unicorn from newegg and it's the Latin America version as well. I'll just wait for the official rollout as this is my first windows phone after my Symbian belle N8. I like it so far and I don't see any problems.

    The only caveat prolly is the screen touch thing but you get used to it. Most of the time it's just me clumsily bumping my finger on the screen. Haha

    I just went through the listings on Nokia's website. They show the country variant for the 1520 released in Finland, Hungary, India, and Taiwan. It's still pretty limited.

    If you guys don't want to roll back, I can let you know as soon as Cyan is available. I'm sure you'll hear it on here as soon as it happens anyway, but I never installed the DP and I keep checking my 1520.3 for updates several times a day. I'll post here as soon as its available if no one else hasn't

    Same here. Had a gathering with some friends this evening too. Would have been nice to show Cyan off

    FWIW, I tweeted Nokia, Nokia US, and Nokia Care saying "Can you tell us when the Cyan update will be available for the Lumia 1520.3 (RM-938 variant)? Lots of people waiting. Thanks."

    Nokia Care responded and wasn't very helpful: "Rollout timings and feature availability vary by phone model, but Lumia Cyan will start rolling out this summer following testing and operator approvals. See this: Software update for Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8 - Nokia . ^JA"

    telling us we have to wait for "operator approval" on an unlocked phone is comical to the point of frustration. smh . the struggle for people who buy unlocked phones is REAL!

    Exactly, I thought getting this phone would be similar to buying a Nexus if on Android. I'll learn from this and just get a locked phone if I stay with windows phone after this

    I've since responded to Nokia Cares, not because I expect a coherent answer this time, but just to let them know how ludicrous theirs was: "I appreciate your response but this is no help at all and frankly, really doesn't make much sense. Why is an international unlocked phone awaiting "operator approval"? Also the link you provided is outdated. For example, it shows AT&T's Cyan update as "under testing" even though it rolled out last week. 1520.3 owners in various forums online are growing increasingly confused and impatient about the Cyan rollout."
