According to the posts I have read it seems that the BB is really a gr8 phone. Would you all say the BB 8520 is better to take than the HTC Snap?

Hi guys, I just got the BB 8520 and I'm trying to download some stuff. But each time I try, an error message usually comes up. Is there something I haven't done? Thanks for your help.

Hide/Undhide apps and folders:
Press menu, hightlight the app/folder and press menu again. Select Hide.
Or, select Show all, and hightlight the app/folder and press menu, and select Unhide.

If you mean a picture that you've hidden for privacy, then I'm not sure since I've never really done it.

My 8520 works very well, but the picture quality is very poor - it takes almost 1/10th of 2M photos. I have, of course, set it at 2 M in the settings. Even the size of the captured image is only a few kb as opposed to in 100's kb for a 2 megapixel image.

Has any one else faced this problem. Please help - I am to the point of dumping this new phone just because of this....

Thanks.

How does this phone compare with the blackberry bold 9000? Any large difference with performance? I thinking of getting this phone for my partner to use for bb messenger.
