    I purchased this one. Seems to be the last Green because now green is not available.
    Nokia Lumia 1520 Refurbished UNLOCKED16GB RM 940 Red Black Green | eBay

    I also purchased an otterbox defender and a screen protector online as well as I like otterbox.
    Where did you find an Otterbox Defender case for your 1520? I was under the impression that Otterbox did not make any cases for the 1520?

    Yeah it is not available from Otterbox anymore.
    Some ebay stores have them.
    But I just looked for the link and say that I ordered THE WRONG ONE somehow. Crap!

    I think then maybe you purchased a fake as Otterbox never made a case for the 1520. Not the Commuter or Defender.

    I currently have a Nokia Icon on Verizon.
    From what I have read the 1520 is the same specs as the Nokia Icon except of course it is a 6" monster.
    I've kind of always wanted one but all Verizon had was the Icon then they stopped selling it with no good reason.
    (Verizon hates Windows phones).

    So I see that I can just buy a used 1520 for about $225 to $250 on eBay that is unlocked for T-Mobile.
    I want to get unlimited data again and save some $$$ on my cell bill.

    Anyway, is the 1520 still a viable phone?
    I assume it is also ready for Windows 10 preview as was on the ICON.

    I also considered the Nokia 1020 with that bad *** camera but I see that it has a slower dual core processor and a AMOLED that isn't as good as the LCD in the 1520.

    Any advice?
    I'm fixing to order something soon so I can walk into T-Mobile to transfer soon.
    I guess they will reimburse me most of what I will own Verizon for cancelling early.
    If TMo has good service in your area the AT&T 1520 is not a bad choice. The unlimited music is nice, especially since it works with MixRadio and Xbox Music.

    Overall the 1520 is pretty unwieldy, and I kind of feel that the extra size is not being utilized. Moreover, with the noticeable amount of display flex I could never put it in my front pocket ... Too bad Verizon phones have issues with SMS on "3G"/"4G", otherwise I would have opted for the ICON.

    If expandable storage is your thing than the 1520 is a plus. You can add Qi charging for under $20 if you have 30 minutes and are a DIY type person.

    Good luck!

    Also if the 1520 is too big, and unwieldy for you and you fear ghost taps too much.

    The Nokia Lumia 830 is the next best thing! 1520=930>830>every other Lumia..... The 1520,930, & 830 are the top Lumia Devices right now

    I got the phone today.
    It looks like brand new.

    Now I need to go to T-Mobile this weekend and make the switch.

    I really need a case. Does anyone know if ATT etc will still have protective cases for it?

    I screwed up and got the wrong otterbox. Turns out they do NOT have them on eBay. I clicked on a "suggested" item as I was making up my mind on the other ones and got a Nokia Icon otterbox. Which I already have. :-/

    I'm thinking about getting this if no one locally has one.

    LOL, no. As I said I made a MISTAKE and didn't realize that the "suggested" item on ebay wasn't for a 1520. So I basically ordered one for an ICON. I screwed up. There are no 1520 otterboxes

    That really does look kinda sweet 😊 I have a white one and love it. As for cases go with Incipio or nillkin. You can find reviews for both on here (WC). Just get it from Amazon. I've had both. And while the nillkin add more protection, I have chosen to stick with the Incipio due to the feel. Honestly though I mostly Rick my phone naked now. I just love the feel, design, and curves of this Lumia.

    The 1520 it's just a sexy phone. Probably the designed/looking phone ever!

    I'm in a crystal clear snap on case right now. I've never been able to justify covering up the massive amount of yellow that is my beloved beast.

    Get some black trays to match your black buttons. I turned my yellow 1520 into a Bumble Bee... http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...x-up-yall.html

    What do you do to pop out your first corner when swapping 1520 shells?

    Every disassembly video online seems to fade, transition, speed, and whatever else through that step... The first corner is always hard for me

    I didn't swap shells. That was Loco5150. I just swapped trays. Much easier. :D

    But on another note, the 1520 feels really cool with it's shell off. I know it sound weird but it does!

    Without the shell the bezels seem so much smaller and thinner. The device without the shell just feels like it has an amazing screen to body ratio.

    Sometimes I wish I could use it that way, but then if it dropped, it's components would probably shoot in every direction LOL

    Do you still plan on upgrading to the flagship later this year?

    LOL, those sure are fancy.

    But I need something that will both protect by phone from drops but also from my sometimes dirty hands, from clicking the side buttons too easily, etc.

    Right now I am ALWAYS unintentionally pushing the camera or power button while trying to hold the phone or get it out of my packet.

    The tracking number shows my phone is in the state so I assume I will get it tomorrow.

    I did get my wife a 1520 (black) from a used phone dealer yesterday.
    I got her a case from the mall.
    Mine is still naked and that worries me about bringing it to work tomorrow.

    Is there a new "flagship" coming out?

    I figure something with Windows 10 must be on the horizon.

    I'm eventually getting it set up similar to how I have had my ICON setup.
    So far so good and no glitches yet other than really needing a case.

    Which Design do you like better? Size aside... and which display do you like better?

    And yes a new Flagship ( Most likely Two, a 5.2incher & a 5.7incher ) is due for later this year alongside Windows 10 for phones

    I definitely like having an SD CARD slot. I was missing that.

    The display looks awesome now that I took off the screen protector it came with and installed a new one.

    Bigger is better as far as viewing.
    It is a little harder to make sure I have a grip on it as I pulled it out of the pocket etc today.

    I was asking whether you liked the design and display better on the 1520 compared to the ICON. Sorry if I wasn't very clear lol

    I got the case in today that I ordered online.

    The GOOD part is that it has a hard part that goes over the power button with some rubber sticking through to activate the power button.
    It takes some effort so now I think I will not accidently push the power button as I hold the thing.

    The bad thing is it does not snap in and out of the belt clip like the OTTERBOX which was so easy to do one handed.
    Instead it slides in and out longways. Not too easy with one hand.

    Anyone know of an Otterbox like protective case with the belt clip part like an Otterbox?

    I think they are identical phones in that regard except for the size.
    Buttons are in the same place. Camera is pretty much the same. Etc.
