    Used, demo, referbs dont count, dont be cheap buy new and remember you get what you pay for, if it doesn't come with a 1 year warranty that should be the first clue to stay away.
    all devices where new! the first 2 from ebay are sealed but no warranty inside the usa. newegg and negri had 1 year nokia warranty.
    waiting for the ups guy! he should be here any minute!

    i received my 5th device. so far so good! none of the issues i experienced before! i will update the first post to keep u all updated!

    The chances of having to return 5 devices are so astronomically low, are you sure you aren't accidentally putting your phones in a blender?

    I guess it's technically possible... but I've owned 4 Lumia 1520s and none of them had the issues you had. (if you're wondering why i've owned 4 it's because I bounced back and forth between the 1020 and the 1520 before deciding on the 1520. I'm an ***** for switching so much)

    its funny no one is blaming nokia and all saying i'm the one to blame for what ever reason... any nokia representative can come and try to poke me and tell me that i am wrong or i should accept a device with such defect?

    As sorry as this seems, when I was with US Cellular, I preordered the Samsung Galaxy S3.. Hottest phone on the market. I went through 5 defective S3's in just a month. They was going to send me a 6th one and I said forget it. I'll will forget the upgrade for now. It wasn't long after that, it was announced that USCC was selling the Chicagoland area to Sprint. Goodbye USCC and Hello AT&T and the Lumia 920....

    I think what people are saying is that you are full of it. But you are somewhat entertaining.

    Because maybe it isn't the phone or OS, but the place you are buying it from? From your picture, I would return it and look elsewhere to buy your phone, it is obvious to me they are sending you their returns instead of sending them back to Nokia.

    I hear that...more than one replacement and my money would be going on something else. I bought a Lumia 1520 off a reputable seller on eBay and it's been peachy, a pleasure to use, but if I'd sent one back and got another dud in its place, well, that would be the end of that story.

    Its hard for me to believe that you have received so many defective devices . Did you emailed B& H sounds like they are reselling returned devices .
    May be you are better off buying from ATT , Microsoft or Amazon if you don't care about unlocked device .

    i wish i can, but i travel and i dislike all carrier branding on any device. this is why i like iphone and favor them with this. also qi charging is a missing feature!
    hard to believe or not, i'm always expecting the next device to come defective no matter what i do. it is just how things are with lumia 1520. how many devices does it take to proof Nokia that they went into a scum quality control?

    I had to replace my first one, but the 2nd has been great (I think the first one may have been a defective sd card after reading this forum. But AT&T decided to change it.) I still think it's B&H has a problem. You should just order a iPhone and be happy. Oh BTW, my 1520 is unlocked, I can also put up with PMA charging, so that isn't really a problem. Stop buying from B&H, get the 1520.3 from Newegg or the Nigri<sp> both sell the 1520 UNLOCKED, and has had owners having fewer problems. You are creating the problem, I bet if you look hard enough at any phone, you will find something wrong. But B&H may be the USCC of Nokia. I think Samsung sent USCC all it's defective phones, because they sold them CHEAP... And USCC bought them to make money, hoping that the users didn't catch on. But it backfired on them.

    LOL, just as OP predicted with 100% certainty, the fifth 1520 is defective. 1520's are crap devices or OP is full of it. Occam's Razor answers the question. Like the other poster above said, thanks for the entertainment!

    hey Fawzib,

    So your 5th Nokia Lumia 1520 was also defective ??

    What was in the package, what was included ? What RM-xxx did you buy ?

    ... and it does or does NOT have QI wireless charging ?

    BTW - I bought my Lumia 1520 off eBay, but, unlike you, I communicated with the seller before purchase (I'm proficient writing in English). Bought it from a B&M in New York ... works perfectly. RM-940 for AT&T & it's unlocked (NOW, got the code from AT&T).

    So you have bought 5 devices(you claim) and now your going to go back to the one from amazon. So how many 1520's do you have?

    Why can't you prove that you bought 5 of them. Simply write my signature from here on a piece of paper and take a photo of the phones with the piece of paper in the foreground or show us the different delivery notices.

    I won't hold my breath though if you don't mind.

    Bad speaker he says but seems very handy that this time it is a problem that he can't photo. He also says that he can't get a good signal on it.
