justin, 27 Mar 2010this phone doesnt have fm right?if FM is what u r looking for then go to other nokia products or other manufacturer that have this feature!!! being used iphone n gemini for quite a long time which dont have FM,i dont see any valuables to me! coz i can hear radio from my car or from my radio..only MP3 matters to me coz radio sometimes play a boring songs..LOL..even during most of my time using many nokia's product b4,that have a radio also im not really listen to them..
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2010the 8520 is about as bright and the sun. so u really need sunnies while ur looking at it unles... moredude..who the hell r u??in my opinion i still think that between gemini n javelin,gemini has more to offer..yes,its true that javelin has more features but it is an old model..gemini is more handy n reliable..it also has a dedicated music key(which is also a short key to open media player that contains pic,music n etc) so,about the brightness..yes,this is the first time i saw n own a smartfone that will be more bright if it used under the lights..not just under the direct sunlight!!! LOL..that is y when i snap a pic under the sunlight also the quality of the pic is still awesome..but,if it is doesnt has enough light,it also still bright..enough to view anything n texting..then what makes u made such a comment like that??
lildude, 27 Mar 2010yeah i tried that but in same cases it didn't see the other cell phone i was trying to conect ... moredude..its very simple dude..i alwez exchange photos n songs via bluetooth wih my wife's E63..no prob at all..first u need to turn on both of the devices (u can do that in "manage connection" n tick at BT)..then,select BT >>search..when ur gemini has detect the other device then click on that device's name n start to pair(make sure that there is no other device's name there..if have,u need to delete it first)..it will ask u a numeric passkey..just type 123 or any num u like..then type the same passkey to the other device n begin pairing..once the devices has been connected then from ur device go to media player..press the menu button(BB logo),then u can find the option there whether to receive/send via BT..although the process is a bit complicated but to me it is actually simple after u have get used to it..hope this might help..
blackberrian, 22 Mar 2010nope..its true that BB is a bit complicated in sending n receiving pic or song via bluetooth..... moreyeah i tried that but in same cases it didn't see the other cell phone i was trying to conect to. now i don't know what to do, get a 8520 or 8900 ?
the 8520 is about as bright and the sun. so u really need sunnies while ur looking at it unless u want to burn ur eyes out. 8900 i'd more compare to the moon. easy on the eyes.
hi!! i am absolutely in love wit the bb 8520 but really apprehensive about it!!
nobody in my circle has it and i am confused if ill be able to use it properly!
a better deal could be nokia e71 coz i am kinda familiar wit nokia phones and looks like a safe deal!!!
and yea do we need to take a plan thru BIS for accessing WIFI too?
want to buy the 8900 curve or 8520. I know the differences between the devices. Can somebody post his expierences with the quality of the 8520 ´s screen. Is it bright and clear? What about the resolution compared to the 8900 curve. is it very notable? thx for your answers.
bluejacked8520, 25 Mar 2010Is this phone compatible with a 4gb sdhc memorycard an is it hotswappable...Hotswappable, yes. 4gb sdhc, not sure. But a 4gb sd card is compatible.
sgaawc, 25 Mar 2010NO 3G TECHNOLOGY, this phone is not acceptable to be classified as a smart-phone in a short-no... moreWhat a narrow-minded way of thought. You obviously know nothing about smartphones. EDGE is perfectly decent for emails and chatting. Even surfing the web for certain things. As a consumer phone, internet isn't the best thing blackberry has but they are releasing their webkit browser soon. Especially when 3g isn't available everywhere or is far more expensive than EDGE.
And agreed, Blackberrian. 2.5G is pretty fast on this device. If a 3g device doesn't have HSDPA it isn't that much faster than a 2.5g device.

sgaawc, 25 Mar 2010NO 3G TECHNOLOGY, this phone is not acceptable to be classified as a smart-phone in a short-no... moredude..although it doesnt has 3G tech but i guarantee u this BB gemini is one of the best smartphones in the market..yes,it runs in 2G or EDGE but the internet connectivity n the speed is so awesome..i know u dont own this superb fone..or maybe u dont get the chance to hold n feel it..so i suggest u better get lost dude..coz i hate pple like u,who doesnt know anything about technology n what the hell is smartphone..dont act like u r smart enough even though u knew it u r nothing..so plzz leaves us happy..dont try to make chaos n mess here buddy..i think u just own a cheap nokia 1100..so,be it n live happily with that dude..chow!!
