    This is not a comparison post, it's a dilemma. I've been using a Nokia 1520 for few months and recently decided that it is just too big. I haven't had an iPhone since 2011 so I bought a brand new 16gb white 5s. I've been using it for about a week and listed the 1520 on eBay. We'll today I had a moment of weakness and ended the eBay sale b4 anyone could buy the Nokia. I took it from the box and completely set it back up using wifi. They use the same SIM card and I'm pretty sure the Nokia will work perfectly fine on my AT&T iPhone data plan If decide to sim swap between the 2. Why must I be such a phone junkie?

    (laughing)….Like the rest of us, you're a techie and enjoy using technological products that works to our benefit. Heck, go ahead and keep both devices. When you tire of one, you can put the SIM card in the other until you tire of it…

    That's what I'm thinking too. They are both great devices and you only live once.

    I've always got two or three devices with me and in use. It's okay to enjoy more than one device. If you feel even a little bit uncomfortable selling your Nokia, don't do it. All the devices I've sold, I never doubted myself. The ones I did doubt myself on, they are sitting in my "Retired but still loved" drawer.

    What has been your experience sim swapping between iOS and WP or android? Does the iPhone data plan work on other smartphones?

    A data plan is a data plan, the iPhone does not require a data plan different from other smartphones.

    On AT&T it does. When I set up my new iphone last week I had to change from AT&T's unlimited smartphone plan to the unlimited iPhone plan. The main difference is that FaceTime over cellular won't work unless you are using the iPhone plan. Other than that your iPhone will work fine with the "smartphone" plan. I've heard that androids and windows phones work perfectly using the iPhone plan.

    You must not be with AT&T.

    Thanks for that, I had no idea. I'm on Verizon and don't recall having to use a special plan for FaceTime over data. Then again I never tried to use FaceTime outside of wifi so that's probably why.

    With AT&T's data plans and different sized SIM cards having multiple devices isn't easy. At least my 5s and 1520 both use the nano sim.

    I think I am going to try and use the iPhone data plan with both devices. I think the 1520 will work fine with the iPhone data plan. The iphone work fine with the smartphone plan for a day b4 I changed it to the iPhone plan.

    My current line up is the 5s and 1520 for phones and a Nexus 7 (2013) and Lenovo Miix 2 8 for home.

    I'm having a hard time deciding which device to use. I bought the iPhone because I felt like the 1520 was too big and I still feel that way, but I miss the big screen and WP8. The problem is I can't find a single thing I don't like about the 5s. I can't find a reason to go back to the 1520. Oh well, first world problems for sure.

    Personally, I'd keep both, but if you're not actually using both then it would be stupid to hold on to the Nokia as it continues to depreciate in value.

    I agree. If I were going to sell one it would be the Nokia. I listed it on eBay but ended the sale b4 anyone bid on it. It's currently worth about 450 but won't be for long. I'm having a hard time parting with it. It is such an awesome device. If Nokia releases a 5" device with the same specs as the 1520 or better on AT&T I'm getting it!

    The 1520 is a seriously nice piece of hardware and also has a great camera. When I auditioned the 1520 it did quite well except that the app ecosystem left too much to be desired that could not be mitigated with web browser use. I recommended to it to not give up or become discouraged but to be patient why the app ecosystem grows.

    I don't use a ton of apps so I don't see the app shortage as a problem for WP. It has all the apps I need. I do like the way WP handles your contacts. If you set it up right and link all the info for each contact it really is superior to iOS or android.

    I spent the last 2 days using the Nokia. Came back to the iPhone this morning. I think I will keep the 1520 but use is as a mini tab on wifi. I don't really need it since I have nexus 7 and Lenovo Miix 2 8" windows tab but I don't want to sell it either.
