Kiki, 26 Feb 2010Are BBs much better than the Nokia E series or are they very different and not really comparab... moreBetween Nokia and Blackberry phones there are a few differences. The e63 has its advantages as well as the 8520 having its own. Besides 3G the main difference is that blackberry needs BIS to be fully taken advantage of. Nokia is a little more open but you still would need a data plan for their push email service so it is basically a choice of preference. I must be honest, I find Blackberry very stable and the EDGE connection is sufficient for email, chatting and socialnetworking like Facebook and Twitter. I lost hope when my n85 kept deleting stuff, Nokias are really buggy and not all firmware updates become available. You would need to change your product code. I didn't and decided to sell it. I prefer the keypad on my gemini over the e71 but prefer the Bold 9000's over the Gemini. I won't mention GPS because I don't use it. Plus the 8520 doesn't have it, but the 8530 does(plus 3g). Google maps works good enough. Nokias offer more customization options (themes mainly) but blackberry has a few good ones. I must admit, I saw a vid of Nokia Messaging on a N97 and it looks more eye-catching. I just don't know if the e63 offers the same experiance. Still my push email is quick, little to no delay, and I'm not sure how stable Nokia's service is. One thing I don't like about Blackberry is that the App memory depletes with usage, while it hasn't been a problem, with time you would need to reboot. Do some more research before purchasing. Any more questions, I'll be glad to help if possible.
new blackberry user, 26 Feb 2010hey guys,i've upgraded from a nokia N95, just want to know if the blackberry supports GPRS app... moreApps are usually OS (operating system) based. If your app is for Symbian S60 devices, then, no. You need to search for a Blackberry OS based app. By GPRS, I assume you mean apps that work via web. You need BIS for most apps to work. But you would need to make sure you have App World available in your country or search forums to help you find free apps. Blackberry doesn't have as many apps as Symbian, even less than Apple, but it does have most of what you need! Or if you choose not to use BIS, then you'd need to find apps for wifi only connections.
mj, 26 Feb 2010can i still use the wifi if i'll buy this from other country? is it open line?If you buy it from a different country, make sure its unlocked. WiFi can still be used but you need a wireless modem/router from your internet provider or public area (library, restaurant, etc.) Also if you plan on activating BIS, make sure the PIN and ESN numbers are free, or not reported as stolen, lost or blacklisted. Otherwise you won't be able to activate the service.

Hi dear all this handheld is too much good for emailing purpose as well as multimedia features coz its camera superb & media player is too good so definately buy 8520 while u r trying a smartphone.
Are BBs much better than the Nokia E series or are they very different and not really comparable. Am busy deciding. The Nokia E63 seems to offer more than the BB 8520 but BB owners say that the BB is better. Who can offer an unbiased opinion. Thanks
