I got my emails, updates from facebook, msn conversations and surfing forums while on the go and didn't have issues. The only down side like I said is the fact that you can't stream vids. But, again, there's wifi for that.

Which is faster and can be used to stream media and web is faster. Edge can't really stream vids but you can through wifi. But I'm sure I read something about the Bold not being as fast as other 3G phones because the data goes through BB's servers to fit better on the phones or something like that. Of course you can use Opera.
can anyone please tell me how fast the internet is while using blackberry data compared to a i phone or anything else?
faisal, 05 Dec 2009this model is my first bb i enjoy it so far except it's bluetooth i can transfer files to an... moreThe reason you cant recieve files is because a blackberry doesn't recieve files like a nokia or samsung due to security of the phone. If you want to recieve a music or picture file, you go to media on the blackberry devise, select pictures, ringtones or music, then click on the blackberry button and select recieve via bluetooth. The blackberry device will then accept the file you having sent to your blackberry

it doesn't have Office Editor. Is there any additional Application for Office Editor? Where can I get it?
BB 8520 is surprisely very good phone - fast, strong, you don't need to restart (for example WinMobile, Symbian), e-mail and apps works perfect.
the only problem is the battery life in TALK TIME - i talk a lot (about 1:30-2:00h. a day) and every night my BB is in the charge. Standby mode is great but not for talking.
got this phone about a week back. worked perefctly fine.. all of a sudden it read JVM error 517, reset, and since then tried to remove and battery and restart many time but have not managed..am not able to re-install the software as well as the phone is not being detected by the system. totally frustrated at the moment.. any ideas out there??

Navin, 16 Dec 2009Hi,
How did u create email account with blackberry? i.e. email@example.com
TCHey Navin, I guess it would be better to ask your phone service provider for help with the gmail account. To create an email with BB, I just used the email setup assistant and at the bottom there was an option to create an account with them, I just put my id and password and that's it.
I want to download themes but when i download from the net all ext are COD and it is hard to install in my unit? can anyone help me how to deal with this installation of COD?
