I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

my Lumia 1520 screen is smashed and its not working to repair it it'll cost around the same price as a brand new Lumia 640 so I was wondering should I buy the Lumia 640 or fix the Lumia 1520?
The genuine Lumia 1520 screen, LCD with frame cost 85 with delivery it will cost 90
The Lumia 640 cost 109 and also with the Lumia 640 there's an offer on Microsoft band which cost 169 but when you Lumia 640 you can get it for 100

Answer:Should I repair Lumia 1520 screen or buy a new lumia 640 for the same price of 1520 LCD?

Are pictures important? 640 will be a big camera downgrade.
Is gaming, streaming and other intense uses important? The SoC and RAM on 640 will be a big downgrade.
Is stellar battery endurance important? Ditto, 640 downgrade.
Beautiful HD screen Important? You get the idea...
If you are comfortable with the downgrade and a deep discount on Band makes up for it, then go ahead. If you have reveled in what the 1520 represents as being a top shelf device - then get 'er fixed up.
I think you just have "new phone itch" and want to scratch it.

Hi All, I have just switched over from an iPhone 5s to a brand new Nokia Lumia 1520. I'm loving everything about my new phone so far but I have encountered one problem. I keep getting problems when scrolling, IE. The screen detects my scroll as a click and opens up tweets or whatever I am trying to scroll through. Is there anyway to stop or minimize this?

Hello,
I have an unbranded Nokia Lumia 1520 running Lumia Cyan with the latest Developer Preview version. My phone worked perfectly until a couple days ago.
Now, when I turn on the screen, the display looks fine for a few seconds but a white veil slowly appears, getting brighter and brighter to the point where the screen almost becomes unreadable. I also noticed a drop in the display quality, which is clearly not a 1080p but resembles more that of a Lumia 520.
Has anyone ever had this problem before? Could you tell me whether it is a hardware or software issue?
Thank you very much for your answer

Answer:Why does my Nokia Lumia 1520 have a white veil on the screen?

it sounds as though the ambient light sensor is defective or being obscured. If you have a case/screen protector, try removing it and see if that fixes the issue.
You can also try going into settings->brightness and turning off "adjust automatically and see if that sorts it out.
If that's not the problem, your screen might have given up the ghost.

Hi All,
Please provide your valuable inputs in the matter related to screen issue that i am facing with my beloved Lumia 1520, my first windows phone.
Few days back, after attending a call, when i put down the phone it was dropped on the table from a distance of 2 inches..and I instantly notices two flashing white dots in form of a star on top side of phone, on both sides.
When I deliberately bang the top end of phone from a distance of 2 inches again, I again saw those flashing white star dots on screen.
The color changes to black when the background is white and it is also visible on glance screen.
Now please advise, if this is an issue related to hardware or software? Does anyone else has faced similar condition? Should I visit Nokia care and have the service people a look at the issue.
The phone behaves normally otherwise, apart from the touch sensitivity issues that is faced globally..!!!
Thank you for your valuable inputs..!!!
Regards- Niraj

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 Screen Spots when hit from back

Hmmm it appears that there might be some damage to the screen from what I can tell. I don't think this would be software related. If this is constantly visible I would definitely try visiting Nokia Care to see what they can do for you. If the screen issue is only visible when you hit the top end of the phone with force then I would not worry about this at all.
Hope this was helpful!

Hi, i recently got my nokia lumia 1520 and updated it to wp8.1 update 1 using Developer preview, so no Cyan yet.
The problem that i recently noticed is, that the Start screen, when swiped up or down(slow enough to observe) has a mild stuttering movement.(very android like!) I was surprised, because there weren't even any apps running in the background, and i cudn't imagine what could cause this snapdragon 800 touting beast to stutter. Then, I tried unpinning the Cortana live tile, and bang! the start screen was as fluid as ever, without a hint a stutter. On closer observation, i concluded that the home screen stutter happens only when the Cortana live-tile is showing it's 'animated circle' side, and the movement was normal and fluid, when the cortana tile displays its flip-side, ie.,news or other info. Do any of you guys experience this same issue? and does anyone have a fix for this? The stuttering is notice-able only on very close observance, but still, i hate to see it in the place of an otherwise fluid UI.

Answer:windows phone 8.1 start screen stutter with cortana pinned tile on Nokia lumia 1520

I have the same issue. I have a 1520 through at&t with 8.1 and Cyan. With cortana pinned the start screen has a bit of a stutter to the animations, especially the app transitions effects when going back and forth from an app to the start screen. It's very annoying and I haven't pinned cortana due to the issue. I haven't seen anything about why it's happening and how to fix it though...

I use nokia lumia 720, the mobile fell down from my pocket and broke on its top left corner. The screen broke but everything with it is working absoluetly fine. Even I can drag the drag screen from the broken side, but I can only see the screen broken. This happened an hour ago. Which one exactly broke? I must change only the Screen glass or the whole display? Please help me.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 720 screen broke: Replace screen glass or entire display?

Separating the digitizer from the glass is a real chore, or so I hear. I think it can be done if careful, but is very prone to messing up the digitizer. I'd replace the whole display if it were me...

Given that the HTC One M8 for Windows releases tomorrow (11/7)(and as an aside, I can't believe that I can't find anywhere that is soing pre-orders for it), and that the Lumia 1520 has been out for ~year already...will there be a price drop on the Lumia 1520?
It is time that I updgrade my 920 and while some of the specs of the HTC One M8 are interesting, I am still leaning towards the 1520. I could hold out for another couple of weeks and hope to take advantage of some Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals...but I have a hard time believing that the price won't drop with a new "flagship" device being released...

Answer:Price drop for the Lumia 1520?

Off contract, you can find BNIB 1520.3 for right around $500 USD. Not a bad price for such a beast of a phone. It's priced less than the 930 or the One (M8) from 3rd party sellers.
What AT&T will do with their stock of 1520s is a tough guess for me to make.

2) {Black&Cyan} Has anyone noticed how you can't play videos from sites other than YouTube and Vimeo?
3) {Black&Cyan} Has anyone ever had problems with websites displaying parts outside of the viewing areas with no way of adjusting for it?
4) {Cyan} Has anyone tried to have Speakers plugged in and tried to talk on the phone through a Bluetooth headset? I used to be able to attach
speakers and still use the built in Mic, but since the update whenever anything is plugged into the headphone jack its as though the
device(Speakers and Headphones) registers as having a Mic when it didn't before the update.

Hi all,
I have recently bought a 1520 (a HK variant with GBIE firmware) and on inserting a giffgaff sim I can only access 3g/4g (there is no 4g in my area so it shifts to 2g then back to 3g, 3g signal isn't great).
Does anyone know the best way to enable access to 2g in the settings, if this is going to be changed in denim or if it is best to change the firmware version?

Hello everyone, I lately bought a Lumia 1520 white color (RM-937). I am using it in the US; the phone came with a ROM from Yemen. I flashed the phone to a ROM from Finland and then the UK (both ROM are country variant). My phone get connected on both Cricket Wireless(Which uses AT&T network) and T-mobile to HSPA+ speed. I am not getting LTE; This is not a big deal for me since HSPA+ internet speed is fast enough to get what I need done. I would like to get recommendation as to which ROM (Country Variant) is better suited for use in the US. I already know the whole process of unbranding (Flashing Lumia phones). My phone currently has UK Country Variant ROM installed.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 unlock

Out of the three phones in my consideration, I would like to get two of them. All three phones are similarly priced on B&H, so I care more about the daily performance. Both the 1520 and 930 have better specs, but specs don't always translate well in everyday use.
The things I value are screen quality, hardware performance, and camera quality. Does the 20MP Pureview camera make that much of a difference compared to the 10MP variant? Since the 930 does not have removable battery or SD card expansion slot, would that hinder its usability? Does the 930 ever freeze? My Nokia Lumia 635 froze about two times since I got the phone, and I needed to remove the battery to reboot the phone. I don't want that to happen to a phone without a removable battery.
So in summary, which phone is the best value for the price? If you have other suggestions, feel free to share them.

Answer:Which phone is better: Nokia Lumia 1520, 930 or 830?

I love my 1520. It is a great phone and I traded up from a 925 with no regrets.
I assume you are in the US since you are shopping B&H. Note that the International 930 they sell will not get LTE in North America. I don't see anything that recommends 930 above the 1520 except pocketability. Forget the overly dense, overly saturated AMOLED screen. Any HD benefit is lost by not having Glance, IMHO. 1520 beats 930 with battery life, SD slot and larger screen. That last one is subjective, but I really did not have a hard time getting used to the 6" screen. I love it.
The 830 looks to be a good all-around value. I keep debating with myself if I should get this for a backup phone. The only thing slowing it down, so far as I can see, is the Snapdragon 400 cuts out the potential for "Hey Cortana."
If the those 3 were lying on a table (1520, 930, 830) and I was told I could take any two for free - I would absolutely pick the 1520 and the 830.

Well guys & gals, here it goes: I am in the USA. I am looking to purchase a Nokia Lumia 1520, 32GB STORAGE, 2MB RAM "International Version" phone from an reputable on-line retailer in Hong Kong. Their notes for the phone states that it is "unlocked" for all international carriers that operate on GSM. But it is my understanding, that AT&T (my service provider) operates with the LTE Protocol. The "USA Version" clearly states that the electronics do support LTE, but I am leery of purchasing the "International Version", if it does not work with LTE, hence slowing down the phone's calling performance, incompatibility issues, etc, etc. Can ANYONE OUT THERE clear this matter UP for me? I have read COUNTLESS posts on similar & related issues, but still have no clear answer, for many who have bought the "International Version" from Hong Kong, are in the EU or other countries and have reported excellent service and compatibility with the phone, but I HAVE YET to find a post from ANYONE in the USA that can claim that "ALL-SYSTEMS-ARE-INDEED-GO" when trying to use this "International Version" with AT&T.

A Factory Reset may be worth trying, as long as all your personal data is backed up.
I suppose it's also just possible that your SIM may be faulty, and perhaps also your SD card if you're using one.

That sounds really frustrating. Sorry to hear it. Given that you are able to receive MMS, i would guess that you are in fact getting some data, it may just be slow.
The first step would probably be to try a soft reset to see if that helps restore proper data connectivity.
The soft reset is the same thing as pulling your battery (on devices where that is possible). This method will not remove anything at all from your phone and is completely safe to attempt in any problem situation. You perform the soft reset by having your phone turned on. Then press and hold the volume down + power buttons until your phone vibrates and restarts. Note that you should not touch the device screen during the process (not even when the 'slide down to power off' prompt appears).
Maybe give that a try and report back?

Hi. I am Using Nokia Lumia 920 and I am soon going To Upgrade and I am from Pakistan so Z3 Won't come fast and I want to upgrade fast so Idk why but I like Android More than Windows Phone because of Customization maybe But Nokia's Hardware is the best In SmartPhones so I want to ask If Nokia Lumia 1520 Great Upgrade From 920 I mean will I see any difference? Or should I Choose Z2 because of Android? I like both phone but 1520's Camera,Battery and Hardware and Screen. Z2's Android,Hardware and Camera

Answer:Sony Xperia Z2 or Nokia Lumia 1520?

If you like the camera on the Lumia 1520 already, you'll be pleased with the new features that comes with the upcoming Lumia Denim update, which effectively surpassed the camera capabilities on the Xperia Z2. (2x lossless PureView zoom, DNG support, 4K video recording, 4K Moment Capture, Rich Capture, OIS)
And soon you'll also be getting the hands free activation for Cortana, and a bunch of Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 features.
Somehow, I doubt the Z2 will be getting Android L (Like most Androids). So if you want a longer OS update support, always opt for a Windows Phone. Oh, and the battery on the 1520 is a beast too!

Hi everyone. I am sure this topic must have been beat to death already but I'm afraid I was unable to find any definitive answers on the various forums I lurked on - including this one.
My question is, does the Lumia 1520.3 work flawlessly with T-Mobile in every and all uses?
My current (and broken, hence the tentative 1520.3 purchase) Lumia 920 is unlocked. I bought it from Amazon when it came out - only to realize that it had been unlocked with a code when it started its life as an AT&T phone first. As such, I was told I never really experienced 4G LTE (or the counterpart to T-Mobile).
The worst part was, I could never send multimedia messages, or receive them. I couldn't read group text messages, open pictures, voice recordings, etc. I couldn't send any out either.
If the Lumia 1520.3 can indeed send/receive multimedia messages then I'm sold. I was told it already has the capability to actually support 4G LTE so that's not a worry for me.
Thanks!
-Jon

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 Pros and cons

I don't own one firsthand, but here's what I've heard. Assuming the unit is not defective.
Pros:
Top-of-the-line hardware
great battery life (so I've heard)
Cons:
could be the size
did I say size? (very subjective, the size can be a pro too considering its the point of the phone)
expense (this kind of hardware isn't cheap like other top end smartphones)

My phone does the phantom push often, is Microsoft aware of this, and will they fix this problem?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 Phantom Push

Phantom scroll and tap has pretty well been identified as a flex issue...http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...0/297759-6.htm
If you lay your phone screen down on a table is it flat? Or do opposite corners rise up?
If you have flex induced twist to the phone you need to adjust your carry habits. Due to the large size, if you habitually carry it in pants pockets it can get torqued and the polycarbonite body retains the shape of the phone curving to fit against your thigh. I no longer carry my phone in any but the roomiest trouser pockets. Breast pockets are now preferred or I also have a carry pouch and a belt holster.
You can carefully, gently and patiently bend the phone back to true (or nearly so) and it corrects many of these issues as things realign inside the phone.

This is a question that may have been asked previously so I apologize if this is a reoccurring thing. I've finally decided to leave the Apple ecosystem and start looking for a windows phone. Its come down to the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 1520 on AT&T. I've reports and blogs about problems with each, more so with the 925. I have small hands for a guy so the 1520 is somewhat intimidating. The 925 however, I've read has poor reception problems, battery issues, and heating problems. Would anyone be able to inform me if the 925 issues have been resolved through updates or if the problems still continue? Also, if either of the two phones developed problems with 8.1? (beta or if you received the update today since it has been released). Thanks so much

Answer:Nokia lumia 925 vs Nokia lumia 1520

Well I have the 925, was part of the dp and now have cyan as well... When I first received my phone the battery life was horrible, but after switching off some of the background tasks, draining it (a few times) and charging it again the battery life stabilized :) With 8.1 the battery life for most 925-ers improved a bit more. The heating issue did remain tho, however I should note that the 925 was made for casual use and not for intense gaming (anything that requires a lot of ram usage).. Personally i solved this problem by purchasing a terrapin back cover case :D The heating is still there (yes Im a gamer from time to time), but with the cover on you will barely notice it! My reception is pretty good, but I don't live in the US so we have that.. Wifi has been an issue, but apparently that was a general issue (not limited to the 925)...
I can't say anything about cyan yet, because I just updated lol

Answer:Which Canadian Networks does the Nokia Lumia 1520 work with?

There are different models of the Lumia 1520 that work with different network bands. You could probably find a Lumia 1520 model that's compatible with most if not all of the bands you need them to, it's just a trick of finding the correct variant. Unfortunately, the Lumia 1520 doesn't have a universal GSM radio (very few phones do) like we're hoping Microsoft is going to do with the Lumia 950/XL so you'll have to find the variant that fits your needs best.

Hello,
Could anyone give me some advice on how to solve the issue of rapid battery drain on an AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520?
I have had two instances where the battery level on my phone has dropped from 30%-40% to 20% or less.
This past Tuesday, I had left the house on a sunny day with about 50% charge on my phone. After reading on for about 30 minutes, the battery life dropped to 31% and then the phone displayed the critical battery alert and immediately shut off. The phone was noticeably warm so I went inside and let the phone cool off. After a few minutes, I powered the phone on again and the battery level was 17%. I had barely started reading when the phonej displayed the critical battery alert and then shut down again. The phone was not as warm as before so I booted it up again and the phone booted up and displayed it had 2% battery life. I charged my phone that night.
I did not use it until today this morning.
The phone had about 47% battery life and I was reading the news feeds in a dimly lit room. Then the battery life dropped to 13%. I turned off my phone and waited a few hours before charging it again.
There is one instance before these events that my phone had shut off on its own was two weeks ago when I was using Office Lens in a bright room when my phone shut off after displaying the critical battery alert. I plugged my phone in and realized it shut off because of overheating. It showed a battery level of 46% while plugged in, the same level when it shut off. Could... Read more

Will the phone work with cricket since they use gsm now

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 1520 work with Cricket if it's unlocked?

If it is an AT&T 1520 (RM-940) it will work on Cricket even without an unlock (according to user posts I've seen) because Cricket is now using AT&T towers. That matches my experience with other AT&T branded phones. I have seen them work without unlock on AT&T resellers. An unlock won't hurt anything.
If it is the 1520.3 (RM-938, the Latin America country variant) it is already unlocked. It will work as well because it has all the right frequencies and bands on the radios to work on AT&T towers.

Hello guys,
So this is my first post on this website. I think you are the only people that can help me. I am buying a Nokia lumia 1520 rm937 from China (yes it's original) but the seller is telling me that the RM-937 version in CHINA has only 2 languages, but you can update the software normally like any other phone. I told her i want the international version with 30+ laguages, she then told me that she will be able to install a firmware for that, but i wont be able to update to 8.1 by my own (or any other version, and it's currently on WP8)
Please help me guys, what should i do? do you think i can install all the other languages AND be able to upgrade by myself?

I currently have an 8GB,Micro SDHC, Class 4, Non-branded Memory Card in my phone, but it's full up. I have bought & tried a Kingston 64GB, Micro SDXC, Class 10; a SanDisk, 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 10; & a Samsung 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 4. None of them is recognized by my phone, although they work fine in my laptop. Do I need to reduce the size down to a 32GB, SDHC, or what can anybody recommend for me to try next. I have read that somebody has installed a 128GB in the same model phone & got it to work, but I don't want to go to the expense for that size. Thanks for any suggestions!

Answer:Memory card for Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone.

It's not something I've experienced, so maybe someone who's experienced the problem first hand will come along shortly. However, when you say they aren't recognised, I assume it shows the SD Card in Storage Sense as 'not found'? Just out of interest, if you install the 'Files App' (a Microsoft App), does if show the card then?

Another thing to check is whether the cards are formatted to the right file system? Taken from HERE:






What file systems do my Lumia phone support?

Your phone supports FAT32 for SDHC cards, exFAT for SDXC cards, with a single Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table.

- Up to 32-GB SDHC cards using the FAT file system.
- 64-GB SDXC cards using the exFAT file system.



Instructions for formatting the card here:
FAQ - My memory card is not working properly in Lumia phone - Microsoft - UK

If that doesn't work, a quick Google search shows that some people have needed to completely reset the phone before it would recognise their SD card. Obviously, this would be a bit of a sledge hammer solution and not particularly ideal as it would entail backing up your entire phone, completely wiping it and starting again from scratch by going to Settings > About > Reset Your Phone.

Hey! I really love everything about the 1520, but hearing about how bad people are experiencing this Ghost/Phantom tap issues is discouraging me from purchasing it.
I keep hearing mixed responses about it being hardware issues, or it being issues with software. So what I'm wondering is who is still experiencing these issues? Did you ever have the issue, and then it went away after updating your software?
Thank you in advance for feedback :)

Answer:Does your Nokia Lumia 1520 still experience Ghost/Phantom Taps?

I have never had the ghost tap issue on my wonderful 1520 :P
The ghost tap issue is caused by the phone flexing and mis-aligning the digitzer, if you buy a 1520, just remember its a big phone and also pretty thin, not even apple has been able to make such a form factor as sturdy as a 5" phone (note bendgate) but generally, if you don't put it in your back pocket, and keep it out of your pockets when doing a lot of heavy lifting (and generally don't wear skinny jeans) it will be fine, I'd encourage buying a light weight (not gel) case to give it a slight bit more sturdiness, but if you are just slightly more careful with it then an average phone, I don't think you'll run into the ghost tap issue much if at all.
also, I have used one of my friends 1520 that has the ghost tap issue, and honestly, it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, its a minor inconvience but it doesn't always do it, even if mine did do it, I'd probably still love it and recommend it to others.
Hope this helps! If you have any more questions ask away!

I am currently in the US and looking to purchase the Lumia 1520. I see that there are unlocked gsm AT&T phones (I currently am using at&t go phone no contract plan) and international versions of the phone.
I found a phone for sale that says this in the specs:
Cellular Band: LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2600
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
WCDMA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
I am wanting to be able to use it both here in the US on AT&T gophone no contract plan and in Europe/other parts of the world with a local sim.
Will that be possible?
Gratitude~

Answer:can I travel to Europe and buy a SIM from a local carrier and use that in my Nokia Lumia 1520 phone?

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT%26T_Mobility this phone should work on AT&T with 4G LTE. Basically, it should work with any wireless operator that uses these frequencies for their network. Check on their website for the details.
