This is gr8 smartphone..I see there are a lot of people here asking stupid questions and saying it's no good...The TRUTH is that BB8520 is perfect phone, it's just that you have TO KNOW how to use smartphones and BB phones..battery is great for smartphones...it last for 2 days if you are working on it intensively and for 4 days if you don't use it too much...OS is great too..
Ravi kumar.N, 06 Jan 2011Does it compatible with 3G? Which is right choice now 3g is a NO go for 8520. if u prefer 3G(which drain batt quite a lot :p) go for bb 9300. or better still bb 9700 or 9780.

Hi. How can I off my Blackberry Internet?? ANd I want to use only my sims' internet service. OR my wi-fi servce. HELP PLS!
This is a sweet phone as i've used previous blackbery's before. the only problem is that the phone does not have a camera flash. For such a smart phone that's a real bummer hey!
very nice affordable phones. if u wanna experience BB but unwilling to spend more, curve 8520 is your choice. the camera is on a grainy side but the mssging facility in this little hp is awesome. battery is nice 4 days on standby once the battery cooked-up and abit of firmware upgrade. BB much like a BMW in hp arsenal. heh.
hi just got the curve 8520, and i cant sign up to get a bb id, which would then allow me to use bb app world. is this a fault with y phone or is there some sort of problem with the bb server atm? any advice would be greatly appreciated. also my emails aren't working, its saying it doesnt recognise my email address and password! thanks!
Pyan, 31 Dec 2010The battery life is indeed poor and the camera too...however,if you love music or snapping pic... morehi, i'm using this phone too and battery life in my opinion and experience,is dependable and not low as you described it to be. did you purchase a brand new one? and for music playback, i find the speaker good too and quite surprising for a phone company that doesn't focus much and not known on this stuff. BB phones are smartphones from the start!
ilovegie, 31 Dec 2010does it have a document editor? I'm looking for CHEAP BB with document editor. Thoughts? And i... morehi i'm from the philippines too...by document editor, did you mean, a feature wherein you can copy and paste docs? with BB curve 8520,this feature exists...you just have to choose the select key on the menu, then highlight the lines you want to copy, and paste them on a new doc. if there are any changes you want to do still, u just have to move ur cursor and type whatever changes you want to do!
prada, 31 Dec 2010is this phone touch screen ?this phone is not touch screen, however it has touch pad technology. BB storm on the other hand is touch screen.
rylai, 02 Jan 2011hi... i just had my BB curve for almost a month now but still haven't activated the BBM and re... moreHi, i'm from the philippines too and using a BB8520..apparently i am a globe user,but it is definitely easy to activate BBM. it's actually on ur phone already, when you are subscribe to ur phone provider for like let's say 24hours of surfing, you can invite ur friends with BB phones, to be on ur BBM list, ask for their phone pin first.when they are added on ur list already, and u are on line,you can start sending them messages, it works like ym. do ask smart for further info on this.
This phone is excellent in my opinion. My internet access is very fast, the qwerty pad helps a lot when messeging, I honestly have to say that this phone is one of the best
i am gonna but this phone is it gr8 or shud i buy the curve 8900????
Is this phone worth buying? Does hav any kind of dissatisfaction? Do any BB fones hav FM radio? Pliz Help!
