AnonD-7127, 30 Apr 2011..i am going to buy the blackberry curve 9300 ..hehehe.. 8520 has no 3g :(The 9300 may look good, but the 8520 is much better for the memory and camera. The new software for the 9300 may be good, but it drains the memory completely. You can't even save apps onto the memory card.
My mom gave BB curve 8520 as a gift, could you please tell me more of your experience using this phone?! thanks=)
i cant used normal as mine profile,went im change it to another profile(like LOUD or SILENT, mine is workingBB)WENT I CHANGE IT TO NORMAL, i cant get any call(isnot ringing,but shows me the miscall)what cn be the problem????pls help me
AnonD-4528, 30 Apr 2011does anyone know how to add say caller name function on 8520.
thxYes, press the key on the left side of the phone and just say call ! You can also navigate to the applications folder and click on the voice dialing.
What the software makes of your command is anybody's guess. It miserably fails to recognise Indian names and unlike SonyEricsson phones, there is no way to train the software. Feel cheated? Welcome to the club!
