And if you set the LED to blink for notifications, it blinks red.

Can anyone tell me how does an incoming message arrive in BB 8520 Curve?
Does it suddenly pop up in the screen like HTC or does it shows like nokia "you have a text message."

Quality control should be the same wherever a device is made. And not sure, but some might make decives for Euro/Asian markets and the others for American markets. Not sure thought.

If you don't want to purchase it, then you can save a blank .doc on the phone and just press save as and that well allow you to create new docs.

> In reply to topz @ 2010-03-16 12:41 from t7Eg - click to readUsually a reboot takes between 2 to 3 minutes, mine takes about 2 minutes. If yours is taking that long and doesn't boot-up at all, then you might have a corrupted file in the OS. You can either reinstall the OS or install a new one. If it's still under warranty then you should take it in for a replacement or something. For instructions on reinstalling the OS, go to crackberry.com and look for the forums called Blackberry 101 How To... there should be one on reinstalling and one for installing it to a bricked berry, just in case your PC doesn't read the device.

have purchased this handset a few days ago, i say can for email and blackberry messenger its amazing, by far better than any other rival, nothing comes close to it.

in terms of operating system, its not that great, alot of plan text sub menus and looks all to formal/corporate, not enough apps (even in blackberry app world) i've been using symbian nokias for 5 years and although it can have bugs, it can do alot more and has alot more apps.

never the less, this is a great handset and very addictive, you just cant help checking it very 5 mins for emails and bb pin messages, just wish blackberry could make the os look better and do more and more apps.
