    Funny this thread is "Just what I've been waiting for", and it came with a "it can wait" sticker

    LOL, I wondered how long it would take before someone noticed that.

    Yeah, for only $10 for next day air, I couldn't turn it down.

    Nar, I think the size is perfect. It just seems bigger than expected in person.

    Yes, I think it will be a perfect size for a phab. Anything bigger would be difficult to place in a pocket.

    Ugh! Received an email from MS Store last night stating:

    Because of overwhelming demand, your Nokia Lumia 1520 order is delayed in shipping. As soon as your shipping label is printed, we'll send you an email with the tracking information. You can also track your order on our site.

    To make it right, we would like to give you a one-time promo code good for $25 off your next purchase from Microsoft online store. It's our way of letting you know how much we appreciate your business.
    Guess Iíll have to wait longer than anticipated. Iíll get an accessory. Lol! Maybe a black case!

    To be continuedÖ.

    It's here! Shipped yesterday morning > delivered this morning.

    I chose black also. What a beauty, eh Shawn?!! I suppose you've had yours up and running? Liking it?

    Not liking the white case I got stuck with, though. That simply will not work in construction. None for it on the MS online Store yet. I'll see if I can trade it at AT&T store.

    I'm off to the AT&T store to get my prepaid service.......


    I miss Cockie to share the enthusiasm with.

    Oh yeah. So far I like the phone quite a bit. I'm just hoping that they come out with some decent sturdy cases for it soon.

    What did you think of it's size when you first looked at it?

    I wasnít surprised at the size, for Iíve seen and held a few of the Sansung Galaxy phads. I think the size of it is perfect. Although I donít do so a lot, it fits into a pants pocket. I like the way the back curves up to the edges for an edge that fits the finger bends. Itís a comfortable fit. Iím hoping the case doesnít ruin that.

    I think this device is great for what it is. Quad core 2GB Memory > This thing is quick! Iím liking it a lot. It surely will simplify my life.

    The hardware quality is just as good as Apple products and is sleek. Thereís not a whole lot of accessories for them yet, but Iím sure theyíll come in time. A case is a must. Iíd hate to drop this beauty without one. We know sooner or later that happens, for we have them with us most of the time. The case I received is a high impact plastic flip cover case. Itís got a white back and tan cover > Ugly to me. I donít want to unpackage it yet to try. The sales person at the AT&T store said heíll trade me a black one when the get some in. Iím wanting to get a dash/windshield mount for it for navigation and bluetooth. We have to be hands-free here after the 1st of the year.

    There is a case listed here: Nokia Lumia 1520 - Glossy Red cell phone from AT&T

    The wait is over > The play is on! Iíll try and report back in a few days after doing so.

    Windows 8 - 64 bit

    I cancelled my Microsoft order..( really nice to work with there ) then tried to purchase the phone at AT@T store..
    they do NOT have it,so I checked on plans..they cost a fortune.
    They used my old plan, then added the data plan to it, (seems there is just the share plan ) .
    NO ONE here to share with., why do I have to share ?
    The least plan offered is the plan I already have , ( NGSM-250 1KNW-stuff I don't ever use, this is basically just calling
    or someone calling me , nothing more. )everything else will cost extra, that would now cost me almost $70. a month plus tax.
    (250 mg ) anything more is extra it seems.
    I'm not obligated on this phone just yet, nor have I made the purchase.

    They didn't have them in stock in our town store either, LPT.

    A day with the phone and I've got it pretty much set up the way I want it. It's much like 8/8.1, so it was easy for me to do so. Start Screen and All Apps are vertical instead of horizontal.

    First thing I liked was double tap on the screen for quick view of time and weather on the lock screen. That means it could be setting on something to do so without picking it up to push a physical button. Unlocking it is quick also.

    Overall it was an easy setup. I like the way the device "flows". I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

    Hi Tony. If you don't mind saying, how much do your pay a month for your talk/data access plan for the smart phone. I've only checked into Verizon and it was going to cost me $70 a month, which is much more than I want to pay for.
