    Never! Keep em coming!



    X2... I don't get out much either. Not lately anyway..



    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...
    I'd try the replacement SIM before the hard reset. I've always swapped SIMs before anything else whenever there were connectivity issues, even on feature phones. There has never been a charge for a new SIM.

    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 have had 99% errors a couple of times but usually it is due to a photo or file in limbo during backup to OneDrive. I just ignore and reset anyway. You might want to check if there is a pending backup item in OneDrive.

    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 was going to put some information but thought that since everyone on here is pretty tech savvy I thought just putting the name would help. Saves me from explaining Gaudi.

    You are making me jealous that you get to go places
    I wouldn't go to that many places if I didn't live in the UK. Makes it a bit more affordable. To do this from another county outside the EU would be expensive.

    You need to take a year and travel the EU while you're still young. It's easy enough for you to do as well. You could be boring and go to Australia but I think the EU would be better from a cultural perspective.

    ***Update***

    So last night, my connectivity issue got even worse. After rebooting the phone to try and get my cellular connection back, my 1520 got "stuck" in airplane mode... Could not toggle it back off at all! Restarted the phone several times to try and fix it.. Nothing. Stuck in airplane mode.

    So then I decided not to worry about the backup i was trying to do, and did a hard reset. Started fresh.. Clean install (no backup restore)
    Phone reset fine.. But problem still present.... and still stuck in airplane mode!

    Next step was to stop in the at&t store this morning and get them to activate a new SIM card for me... Did that, didn't change anything... Still stuck in airplane mode and have no cellular service.

    So it's my 1520..... still under warranty. I'm making a warranty exchange. Should have my new 1520 by Monday.

    I guess my 1520 got jealous of the attention I've been giving my new iPad air 2, and decided to die lol

    In the meantime, I'm using my backup phone (my old iPhone 4) for a phone for a couple days.......

    If they were saying "wired" things, how high were they strung?

    So there's an AT&T warranty exchange center here in town (actually about 45 min drive from where I'm at) where, instead of making a warranty exchange through the mail, I can walk in and do the whole warranty exchange there if they have my phone in their inventory. I called them, and they do have it in stock, so I'll probably ride over there Monday rather than waiting on it through the mail.
    I was thinking though, should I flash my 1520 back to retail with the NSRT? I've got the dev preview on it and was just wondering if I'm going to run into any issues with the warranty because of that. What do you guys think?

    All you do is uncheck the option in the Dev preview app and reboot. That should put you back to the last firmware without the need to flash anything yourself.
