    I think it was rolled out for few devices, one I know is L 525. I now have L 730 and can see this option available on 730 too.

    Go to "Settings", then "Extras+Info" and see if it Black or Cyan. Static IP was rolled out for selected phones having Cyan firmware.

    If its available for 1520, then check for phone update and see if a new update for your phone is available. If you are running everything to the latest version, then its not available for 1520.

    Read the article posted on WindowsCentral:
    Static IP option finally arrives in a new update for a few Lumia phones | Windows Central

    You may get it once rolled out for your device or the day when Denim firmware gets released for all devices.

    I think it was disabled again in a later update as I haven't got this in my 930 with cyan and 8.1 DP.

    Annoying.....

    If your router supports it, you're better off using DHCP address reservations.

    For normal connections then yes, but at my workplace I use VPN to get around site blocking issues, but they also use OpenDNS to block at a DNS level. Being able to set an alternative DNS would overcome this.

    Or! Turn off WiFi and use your cellular service?

    Another option that the OEMs and carriers should never have been able to turn off in the first place.

    I agree that would have been best, but it's not an option.

    So the OEM in your case (Nokia) turned it off then. Ability to configure static IP is an option in the OS but OEMs and carriers have the ability to specify whether it's available.
