i have a BB 8520 and i'm just having a wonderful experience. It's like having a computer in your pocket. i can browse, IM, go on any social network, even view word docs, PPT's and excel spreadsheets! Downloading and installing applications from the BB AppWorld gives this little power puncher added value and ability. in addition, it has dedicated music buttons on the top portion of the phone, making it a great media player. Best of all, it's affordable.

Basically what will happen is;it will reformat the device. So if u haven't save the photos & music; say goodbye to those... & I'm sorry. This kind of issue happens when a downloaded 3rd party application patch get corrupted.
Recently, I bought this mobile. it just amazing. Very decent business phone with required features. And it is very low cost comparitivly. other brands frequently Hangs but BB doesn't. In all aspect BB curve 8520 is awesome. If you want smart phone without 3G and GPS features, surely you can go with BB Curve 8520.
I'm using it since 8 months
Great phone! Trackpad is awesome, fast processor, can play almost any video format incl divx mp4 etc. As if I'm carrying my laptop with me.
At times the trackpad used to freeze though
But I learned that putting a card board below the battery over the metal plate fixed it! Nokia is no way near
Go for it and experience the fun!!
This is an amzing phone. I never liked Blackberry before but after using the phone I don't think I'll change to another phone. Its like a mini computer. Whatelse would anyone ask for. Its a great hnadset to use.

this wasz the best phone for the first two months that i had it, now its freezing, my track pad won't move, and it just stays there and get over heated on its own, like wtf
He had been complaining of it shutting off and taking a long time to come back on (3 and 4 hours). The other night when he plugged it up to charge it cut off again and the next morning it had not rebooted. His charger works because it charges my phone. He said he messed with it for a few minutes and finally got the red light to come on, a few minutes afterwards a white screen came on with a picture of a battery and a lighning bolt through it. I had that happen to my phone once and it was extremely dead. He put it back on the charger and it will still not come on. He's tried different batteries and still nothing. When you put a different battery in the red light comes on and stays on and it has a black screen. What could be the problem. Can it be saved or should he just try and get a new phone??
I have one. It's very nice. I love my BB so much.. I can access FB, Blackberry messenger and more social networking whererever I go for only 300 pesos/month.. Thousands of downloadable apps in Blackberry Application world. you can synchronize also your BB with your laptop so you're always updated with it's latest feature and the OS is also upgradable. what I love most on this is the Blackberry Messenger.
