So I won a 1520 from a microsoft store contest and my 1020 just got replaced via store warranty. Since I had the 1520 I never used the 1020. Now that my screen recently cracked on the 1520 I decided to use my 1020 since it's new and I never used it. So I went to ATT to get a sim and put in the sim card and it wasn't detecting my sim card. At this point i'm thinking ok maybe ATT didn't activate it. Went back and got a new sim and it still didn't work. Tried the same sim in a different device and it was working.

Tried a factory reset and guess what, it did not work. So I decided to contact Nokia Care and they tell me to try everything that i've done and ruled it as a defective device and that they would take a look. A few days later I get an email back saying:

I don't know how I can damage it when I never even used the phone. I'm a huge Nokia/WP fan and now i'm stuck with cracked 1520 and a new 1020 that doesn't even work. Thanks for listening to me vent guys. I do have an upgrade to use. Just might go iOS or Android...

Ohh that really sucks. Try going back to the store and making a little noise and saying that you have bought the 2 most expensive Lumia phones, you are a loyal Windows Phone customer and would really be disheartened if they treat you this way. Maybe they might consider doing something.
