So just so i get this straight, the Lumia Denim update is only available to some Nokia Lumia 1520 phones depending on their IMEI number and Firmware version?

Ones they are linked, you have to unlink them one by one! If you don't unlink them, then it.s a whole mess to understand who has called you or texted you.. ~Please give people the option to chose between tiles menu and a regular desktop menu (this is very easy to implement!)

Microsoft: When will you fix the web rendering engine? This is the only major issue in all windows phones that is still not fixed after all of the 8.1 updates! Half of the websites don't render properly (not displayed properly) no matter which browser you use (including on Lumia 1520 phone) . I don't want to Switch to any Android device because of their bad touch interface and bad text auto correction which together make typing lots of text a nightmare!

Once in a while facing problem of hanging in windows. Internet is good. Mobilink edge is fast enough in 1520. Whereas I used many androids HTC, Sony even galaxy s4. Most of them rubbish. Specially Samsung phns. They r earning thru advertisement n not thru quality. Huawei is very good when it is coming to hanging. They don't hang and irritate. For any help, u r welcome.

Even when I am in EDGE coverage area my internet speeds have been decent. 3G&4G on my 1520 are quiet fast though our 4G in Kenya is under testing it's extremely fast on this phone. I won't say all 1520s are perfect may be yours has a problem somewhere BUT before you take it for a check-up it's always recommended to try a hard reset and in a case like yours make sure you are using the correct &up-to-date internet setting. I will be lying if I say I can solve this problem especially that we are so many miles apart!! And whoever told you that generally Androids are faster than WPs is crazy in his/her head! If your phone is having problems with wp8.1 please stay away from Windows 10 TP for phones and wait for more stable builds

Extremely good phone; umm, as long as you handle it like a piece of glass. I had mine for two weeks and dropped it on a case protected edge from less than 10 inches and the screen busted. I figured clumsy me, ordered a screen, and replaced same. What I discovered when I opened the phone is that 100% of the structural integrity of this phone isprovided by the screen and ONLY the screen. Not a good design.

Two months later, the second screen cracked in the middle, right across. This is a known issue with the phone, so much so that even though I voided the warranty, Nokia aka Microsoft Mobile was kind enough to send me a Lumia 830 as a replacement.

I figure if one uses this phone, keeps it in their purse, you might have a shot. But if you are going to use a pocket or even a belt mount, forget it. The unit is simply too fragile. Even the 830 they so graciously gave me I am having doubts about.

After installing windows 10 on my lumia 820, it doesn't recognize my Bluetooth head set (Jabra). Any suggestions? Overall working well.
Tks
