these are the words from the reviewers at gsm arena
"The all-plastic construction is ok, but the plastic used on the front looks quite cheap. It attracts smudges, stains, and makes the device look like a Chinese toy designed for four-year olds. Not good at all".
i totally agree with them.
Does it have document viewer whereby I can view MS word, Excel, PDF and other documents coming through my email?
If it does not have it then can i download the viewer or similar program on it? which one is the best software for BB 8520?
Thanks for your help in advance.

i don't think so, the 8520 is £150 on pay as you go/ sim free, its cheap, and if it was prestigious then why are kids from the age of 12 years old using them, anyone can buy this phone, its not for elite executives, dont make me laugh.

Thanks guys for all your comments. I am buying the original BB from Dubai. I was getting used BB phone but I was unsure as you said. I believe New product is the best product. The main reason of buying this phone is the BIS. I am not in the office alot so I would like the BB to help me keep in touch.
Thanks once again for all your positive responses and I have ordered BB 8520. I will get it very soon... I am excited just like a baby getting a new toy :)

Original_Jamaican, 15 Feb 2010Anybody knows how to delete ALL contacts from the SIM with one go ? I don't see a DELETE ALL o... moreI don't think there is a way. At least I don't know of any. Why don't you try creating a backup of your contacts without the duplicates, then delete all of them from your phone and load up the backup file. Just open the desktop manager and go to backup and restore and select advanced. From there select the adress book and you chould be able to create a file to replace your current contact list with duplicates, for one without duplicates.
I am interested in the phone.....Just want to know what suggestions do you have for me? should I buy it?
Upto now whatever I have read on this site is all good about BB 8520. any negative comments?
Anybody knows how to delete ALL contacts from the SIM with one go ? I don't see a DELETE ALL option.
The thing is I see duplicates for each contact and I'm thinking the Blackberry BOLD is reading from phone memory and SIM simultaneously. Anybody else ever had this problem ?
i've already put my hand on this phone and i kinda like it. really luv the qwerty keypad, feel so comfort to use. the functionality is great. the camera is good but no flash. but what more can u expect from a phone with this price right? if u want a blackberry in cheaper price, get yourself one of this.
Ok there u go guys thats it! each side wrote their opinion already.... So get off no need to make any heat of force ur view to other, ppl on its own choice. respect!
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2010yes i agree with you on the point BES is by far the best for business emails and is more secur... moreI never could get it to work, then again I didn't have it long enough to figure it out. Learn something new each day. One thing though, blackberry does multitask. And I don't understand that stuff about paying extra for BIS services. From what I know, here if you get a Blackberry it automatically goes with the Blackberry data plan, or in my case, BIS for prepaid with unlimited data for a month, no contract. And any other phone (iPhone, Nokia or SE, etc) goes with a 3G data plan, which costs the same as Blackberry plans. But they aren't compatible, so maybe this is what you mean? That was what stopped me from buying a blackberry in the first place, exclusively tied to Blackberry. But, in the end its the same, roughly 45 US dollars for unlimited data and 60 minutes plus text for any, Blackberry, or iPhone or any other data plan.
