    Two pictures from today.

    First one is Sagrada Familia, I suggest looking it up to understand it. Second is a picture taken from the MNAC over looking Barcelona.

    Hope I'm not boring you to death with my pics.

    Lets get to the bottom of this. There wasn't an update or a firmware to the 1520 besides the one that added the data toggle . If it was the 1520.3 my sister would of gotten the update. Neither the 1520 or the 1520.3 have gotten updates . I'm thinking its att doing either they are doing something to the cell cite or increases in people using the cell cite. Hmmm this is me talking out loud
    That's the update I'm talking about.. My 1520 (on dev preview) definitely got that update.. And it really seems like that's when (maybe a coincidence?) all these connectivity issues started to arise.

    I called AT&T a couple days ago to see what was going on with my data connection and service. The tech on the phone ran some tests, said everything looked fine.. No outages to report etc etc. had me power down my phone while she disconnected me from their tower and reconnected me.. And told me to call again if I kept having problems... well, I'm getting ready to call again!

    See, the AT&T tech telling me everything looks fine on their end coincides with my girlfriend telling me that her iPhone's data/cellular connection (we're on the same AT&T family plan) has been fine. This all leads me to believe that either;

    A. My 1520 is screwey from that last update that "ONLY added a data toggle".. Or somehow the antennas in my phone have gone bad... which I highly doubt! (that doesn't happen.. Does it?)

    Or

    B. It's these fake "law enforcement/FBI/government/big brother snooping/surveillance towers" that i keep hearing/reading about, that my phone keeps being forced into connecting to.

    Or

    C. Not only have the North Korean hackers hacked into Sony and Xbox Live, but they're now hacking into our AT&T network! Lmao

    But seriously though, all jokes aside; W... T... F.... Is going on???


    And don't think for one minute guys, that I'm trying to convince myself that I need to switch to an iPhone or anything like that! I might get an iPhone as a 2ND phone yes, but I'm not giving up my Windows Phone! I've got too much invested in apps and games etc on this platform. But if my 1520's having hardware (antenna) issues, I might have to get another 1520.

    If this keeps up, I'll do a hard reset first... Before making any rash decisions.

    Oh wow 😲 well that is tricky . Maybe it could be your sim card ?
    Then again it could be that update that's messing with connectivity that you said earlier. Must be a att thing with their 1520 . My sisters 1520.3 doesn't have that problem

    I definitely know Barcelona is in Spain. I didn't know anything about that church without looking it up on Wikipedia, though. "Holy Family" is a common name for churches. We have a "Sagrada Familia" church here in Cleveland that is home to a Latino congregation. We also have another church in Cleveland named "Holy Family"; the one called "Holy Family" is not connected with any particular nationality.

    I thought of using AnTuTu benchmark instead as Basemark OS II is having test problems with the C3.

    The results are:

    Xperia V 18498
    Xperia C3 17907

    This is a nice phone though and my girlfriend wouldn't really care about those figures. But I just thought I could have better performance at the C3 price point. My Cherry Mobile will walk over this phone in benchmark performance.

    Gladly, it takes good photos that my girlfriend cares about.

    The AT&T "advanced tech support" dude I talked to today suggested the sim card as well. I haven't done it yet, but after I do this hard reset tonight, if the problems persist, I'll go up to the AT&T store tomorrow and have them activate a new sim card for me. (apparently they'll do it for free). Then... if neither the hard reset or new sim card solves the problem, they said they'd replace my 1520 as it's still under warranty. :)

    I apologize for my long rant earlier guys, but I was pretty p-I-s-s-e-d off when I realized I had missed all those calls at work today.. it really put me in a jam! I depend on my phone and it's service/connection. With the huge amount of money I pay AT&T each month, I should never, EVER look at my phone and see "no service" on the screen...

    Understood. Sometimes we just need to rant when technology has those moments when it fails us...

    No.. why would I want to use that? I'm just trying to complete a backup before doing a hard reset. I have no need to flash the phone.

    i wouldn't do a full restore because the problem could be carried over if you restore. what I would do is start off fresh and install only the important apps and see if you still get connectivity issues
