    So my daughter has knocked my beloved day one of release date purchased 1520 down and shattered the screen. The only phablet assurion has to replace it with is an iPhone 6+. I don't want to buy a new 1520 since I'm hoping a replacement will be here by September so for now,I'm going to the dark lonely world of iOS...

    Awww!!! I just got here!!! And you're leaving already? :( Boo...

    Just an idea, the 6+ goes for 900 euros... Sell it, buy another 1520 for like 300-400 bucks, and heck, with that kind of pocketed cash, you'll probably be able to buy a new 1525 or whatever it will be :) haha.

    Further highlighting how overpriced the 6+ is considering the 1520 is better in most ways (hardware-wise.)

    It all depends on how it falls and where and from what height and onto what ... Too many factors. I will get a screen protector for mine.I have an ultimate shield for my 930. First two days it showed that it was there in a few spots but now it's completely invisible and awesome. I love it. ;)

    I feel you should go for a used L1520 on ebay. So the maths is as follows:

    iPhone 6+ (if you sell) = $600
    L1520 (refurbished on ebay) = $258
    Balance = $342

    That would be the best way to remain on your favorite WP and also if possible buy another one on ATT (with insurance and warranty) with the balance cash.

    That is the best way to go. I got mine for $200 off Ebay which was a steal. No contract no hassle. Not only that you can get the device screen repaired on almost every corner it seems with everyone venturing into screen repair. I stopped paying insurance with AT&T for the $7 per month. My son broke his screen we took it to the mall they repaired it for $80 out the door and that is less than the deductible. So since then no more insurance for me.... AT&T wants $200 deductible for the phone, Hell I bought a used one for that. Do what is best for you these are just some options to think about.

    I used to do that when I used to sign contracts for phones. My carrier would give me a good deal on an iPhone every year, I would ALWAYS take the iPhone ,sell it, and buy a difference device that I wanted unlocked or locked to my own carrier. Now I always get them unlocked. But regardless, I think insurance is a waste unless you're really prone to breaking your phone. I have yet to break a phone. And if it comes out defective, the carrier / company must take care of it. And since I usually buy from Amazon, which in my opinion has the best customer care, I am always taken care of and get unlocked phones.

    I think you're doing what's best for you. I mean, seriously, an iPhone 6+...

    That price is REALLY high for a device!
    I'll give another example. I bought the first Galaxy Note, loved it. The second Galaxy Note, loved it too. Kept that one for 2 years! And now the Galaxy Note 4 is 200-300 euros more expensive than the original two when I bought them pretty much the first two months. I really hate when companies sit on their high horses and think that their products are worth more just because they say so. I don't think the Note 4 has more tech today than the Note 1 when it first came out at the time. They were equally technologically advanced at the time of release, but all of a sudden they're worth an increase of 20%-30%? No thanks.

    Apple has been sitting high and mighty for a while. I can't believe iPhones go for the price that they go for!

    Oh well!

    Good luck selling your iPhone 6+, I doubt you'll have trouble.
    Get a used 1520, most come with 30 days warranty to try and make sure everything works. So you should be protected there. Regardless, eBay has 180 days protection if they don't say something is defective, and you see it's defective, you can complain with eBay and PayPal.

    I just got myself a 1520 off of eBay, used but like new. Hopefully it'll arrive soon :) hehe.
    Best of luck!

    Try the iPhone for a week. I got the 6 Plus after giving up on my 925's battery life, until a good Lumia flagship comes out, I'm enjoying the iPhone a lot.

    I bought my 1520 in December 2013 for $475 on eBay and has been rock solid. I do not have screen protector but I have a hard strong case and keep my phone in great shape. Just waiting for Denim when AT&T release it... Hopefully soon.

    To look on the bright side, right now most of Microsoft's services are available on iOS, and they are much superior to their Windows Phone counterparts at the moment. If I were you I'd stick with the iPhone until Windows 10 comes out. At that point there will probably be a nicer Lumia 1530 and you'll be able to get the improved MS apps on Windows 10.

    In the meantime, enjoy your more functional Office, lag-free Xbox Music and OneDrive, and nifty Outlook email app!

    Usually I scoff at these kinds of threads and don't post on them because my words would not be positive. But yours is sincere and legit. Hate to see you go as a fellow 1520 member, but looking at seeing you back when our replacement gets here!

    BTW my 1520 is the only phone out of many that I have bought and maintained a case for since day 1. I thought cases detract from the beauty of the phone, but 3 or 4 cracked screens later has changed my tune. They still detract:) But I was able to find form and added function with a wallet case that protects corners and screen with some style:)

    Got my iPhone this.morning, is on craigslist as of now. I don't understand how anyone can use live tiles and then go to icon based os. Tried it out for about 30 min, and then reset it to factory. Att store down the road has the 1520 in yellow for 399 with no contract so ima grab it as soon as iPhone sells.would rather have another black one, but beggers cant be choosers

    accident do happen.....I remember one from the Blackberry community that had just received his brand new phone Z 30. About a week in, his wife ran into him and the phone flew braking the screen. He also was out...( off course that was not on purpose....)

    So is he hiding????

    i do see your logic in leaving and hopefully you find your new experience fulfilling. Each of the 3 major platforms have their pluses and minuses and it is a personal choice an individual needs to make.

    I too have a 1520, but also have a other WP devices to fall back on. The fact that it seems Microsoft appears to be spreading itself thin has me concerned for the future. I wish they would get their core services squared away before taking a stab at trends in a half baked manner. I realize you need to move with the times, but Microsoft in the past few years appears to be habitually late for the bus and then scrambles to find a ride to school.

    Once again enjoy the new experience and don't forget to visit

    Same thing happened to me. My son hit my 1520 out of my hand. I Found someone who was selling an Atix S Neo cheap. I have that, and I also have the Blu Win HD. I would never go to iPhone. My carrier (AT&T) always has deals for iPhones, even when your contract is not up. I don't care what deals they'd try to dangle in front of me. I owned an iPhone once....for less than a day.
