    Thanks!๐Ÿ˜Š I'm enjoying this phone and so far it has been a blast to use and I can't get my hands off this phone๐Ÿ˜ƒ I love it so much
    So glad you like it! I assume you got the unlock problem resolved? Everyone is right... If you're OK with a big phone, the 1520 is a joy to use. Congratulations!

    Oops. I Need your help again guys. So, I already unlocked the phone (AT&T gave me the unlock code) but I still have no service (My network is MetroPCS). Does this have to do with apn settings?

    Try this...

    Dial ##3282#
    Enter Field Test Mode
    The next screen go to the bottom and click the the three little dots (a.k.a. ellipse bottom right)
    Now click network type and change to manual
    The next screen, scroll down, make sure all bands are checked especially 1700 and hit back button.

    When you go back one screen it should say all bands are active. You can just close it now or go to home screen.


    You may need to reboot, but doubtful.

    Did that help?

    Was the phone unlocked or did AT&T unlock it for you?

    The seller said it was unlocked, but when I dialed ##7820#, it was locked. So, I requested an unlock code at AT&T an they gave me the code. I unlocked the phone but I still don't have service.

    I think I found the solution. I did a little research and found out that you need to call MetroPCS so that they can register your new phone into their system

    Thank you steve. When I contacted a microsoft reseller store near my place, they said the screen comes along with LCD display so the cost will be somewhere near 8000 INR(around $116) or more. So it is not possible to just change the front panel instead of the whole lot? I also want to know is there any issues to continue using the phone for a while with the crack until I could arrange the money.
    The screen and LCD are glued together in 1520 to improve visibility outdoors, they are not sold separately

    AFAIK, the below screen it will be touch digitizer and LCD is placed below the digtizer

    The whole setup costs 16k rupees when I enquired last year

    Some are but unless you got a heat gun and some patient's to separate the 2 then I'd get the entire thing and save you the headache. You can YouTube it and do it yourself, just take your time.

    congrats , its a great phone and I'm really satisfied from it ,I am also using AT&T model rm-940 in this model their is no Qi Wireless charging , Didn't supports all LTE bands when I bought this phone I don't know about these . over all phone performance in great battery time is enough for a whole day . you have to keep a 2000 or 3000mA charger for fast charging . best of luck enjoy Phablet .

    You should not if your carrier does not restrict it. besides the AT&T model lets you edit the data and MMS apn so you should be fine.
