Can I get the battery replaced anywhere?
@tejazz: That is disappointing to hear, my last option I was hoping for would be the reset using the Lumia Software Recovery Tool. To hear it's even worse, that's quite ridiculous. "Ultra-expensive paperweight" is exactly it.
@mrshots: It's surely beginning to appear like this is more of a software issue more than anything...UNLESS Denim damaged the battery with all of the reboots and false battery readings, then we're stuck with OS and hardware issue.
@myoujin: You have a Lumia 1520? You feel comfortable replacing the battery if so? Let us know how it works out
I suggest that we get some traction going on the MSFT support forums, someone at Microsoft needs to make note of this issue and have a fix in place. But at the same time, I don't see myself waiting a year for Windows 10 and AT&T to approve next update just to be able to use my phone normally. Can any of you go through the trouble of posting on that thread I linked, just to get the thread bumped and hopefully a MSFT-affiliated agent to respond?
Yesterday I got my new battery after wait for 30days. Bought it at Ebay.
I bought bundle with tools (screw driver, plastic tools etc).
Quite easy to open my phone and replace the battery. Now working like charm.
No more auto shutdown when using web browser and camera.
