Just make sure that the web browser's settings are set to connect through public access points or something like that.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2009how do you use the bluetooth on this phone i can tell you that if you want to receive a media file, you have to go to menu and pick your media file, press the menu button again and receive file from bluetooth device. of course you should pair first with the other bluetooth device
just brought a Black Berry 8520 Curve in Thailand and moved over to maldives. Unfortunately the local mobile network Dhiragu can not support internet options on this phone. Could someone please suggest what should I do so that I can start browsing a technician recommended Opera download any views ?????
I agree with some people, y do they compare BB with Nokia E71 and E72, no doubt these 2 phones are good at their level.
But BB OS is something different then symbian OS.
BB is king in its own ways....
Damn, the review sucked. Every review on a gudget phone from these guys should be more flexible. They wrote this comparing
it higher ranked phones? For one thing, mine came with a 2gb card (region dependant) and sunlight legibilty is great. Too bad they expect every phone to have the same things as higher end phones.
Damn, that's a harsh review. I guess you guy's didnt get anything for free this time from RIM? ^^

All problem short out email related . god features for push & pull email.
but batry backup prolem.
OMG, I hate gsmarena's reviews about blackberry phones. Why do you have to compare all BB phones to the nokias E71 and E72? They will never understand what Blackberry is about. If you are thinking of purchasing a BB phone please don't read the reviews. I recommend you to find reviews in youtube and decide for yourself.
just got bb8520, first bb, so far so good, but have a question. My call waiting is not working properly, called my service provider they say it's activated, told me to check under "options" call waiting should say "yes". there is no such thing under options. I've tried to find it no luck.
Can anyone tell me how to set up or check on my call waiting?
Wow, I had never read such a mean review... Dudes over at GSMArena almost used the Curve 8520 as toilet paper... lol!!

Just read the review partly. Do you really think BB don't appeal to wider public? Well that's my experience from a UK shop floor: all the kids want a BlackBerry so if RIM did a prepaid version it would sell like a dream. Samsung already picked it up - hence Corby Qwerty or whatever it's called. 8520 is more popular than 8900 because of it's low price tag. Both get Google Maps so people aren't fussed about proper SatNav. Also - who really wants to take photos with a BB? 8520 was a great idea and though it's nowhere near the Bold most people don't care as long as it's a BB.
just got my bb.was a gift actually wanted the bb bold. So not really happy about it.
noticed it is limited in some functions like the 3G,internal memory amongst other things compared to the bold
Pls could u guys tell mi what is fantastic about this bb? And pls what is the difference btw a Tmobile bb made in hungury, and a plain bb made in mexico?
Hi. Noticed a couple ppl have problems with using the wifi. Bought this phone today and haven't used it much yet but I can use the internet through wifi. After you set up the wifi connection go to settings, advanced options, browser. Change the default browser settings to hotspot browser then save. This way if you didn't take out a bb plan, you can still use the internet where there is wifi connection. Hope this helped.
