can somebody please tell me does blackberry curve 8520 can work without internet, i mean if i dont want to use or even connect to internet can i use this phone just for making a phone call or text message???
Can you tell me how can I access internet in this phone without paying for the Blacberry service. My service provider (Idea cellular) gives me free 1 GB data access every month and I don't need a Blackberry plan as of now.
Vishal Narsian, 16 Feb 2011Hi,
If given a choice between 8520 curve and Nokia E 63, I would say E 63 is a better choice,... moreWho said the 8520 has a bad battery back up? Dude do you home work b4 you come back!
BB8520 works for 3days with one days charge, I use the phone heavily on calls surfing the net and do lot of tweeting and with all this use the phone last easily 3days! Nokia e63 has underpowered processor that consumes less power beyond that its just a piece of crap e63 tends to freez a lot when you try to open heavy websites which isn't the case with a BB8520!
youtube is not working on my phone. plz help me in this? is there any specific software is available to run youtube on bb ?
Can somebody who already has one of these tell me if I should get one for Christmas this is available at Argos on orange or o2
its not a good cellphone, if you really want to take qwerty keypad, i suggest you to go for motorla
If given a choice between 8520 curve and Nokia E 63, I would say E 63 is a better choice, firstly you dont pay too much for accessing internet (BB messenger and all), secondly E63 has a much better battery life and its easy to use the qwerty keypad.
This is the second blackberry curve ive had and ive had this one 2 weeks and the screen has black patches on it inside its the second time its happend what do i do ?

anon, 08 Feb 2011my Blackberry is freezing alot lately.
is anyone else experiencing the same problem? This may be due to the on board flash memory being utilized to its last bit. Try few these steps and let me know if you've notice any changes in how the phone functions
Step#1: Try, to clear your EVENT LOG as much as possible, how do you do this its quite simple, PRESS the ALT KEY AND TYPE LGLG the event log will appear, then click on the menu button and click on CLEAR LOG.
DO this once every day!
Step#2: Check the available RAM available on your BB device. If the available RAM is anything below 90MB to 50MB ensure you delete the unnecessary applications and keep the most used applications intact on your device.
Deleting those unnecessary applications will be breather for your phone, Any phone needs minimum of 90 to 60MB RAM space for any sort of multi-tasking ability. Due to which many devices tend to freeze!
Guys try this!! I'm not sure if it will work or has worked with many but, I have found a way to use Ubertwitter and Nimbuzz chat messenger without having my BIS or Wifi.
Here are a few steps:
First call up your service providers activate your GPRS service (Please don't be confused this for BIS service.) Once you have activated the GPRS Service on your SIM have the SIM card moved to your BB8520.
Go to manage connections>>Mobile Network Options>> If your data service is switched off, turn it ON! Then do a hard reset of the phone by taking the back cover of and pull out the battery, after 5mins put the battery back and let the phone restart.
Step#3: Go back to Manage connections>>Mobile Network Options>> check if your data service is ON or not! If its on. Go to BlackBerry Application world and download Nimbuzz messenger and Ubertwitter and starting using these application on your GPRS Data service.
If it doesn't work out! Say Bollocks and get back on your BIS service and don't forget to pay your bills on time!! Hehehe Its working for me!! So, lemme enjoy the benefits!!
well blackberry was exciting before i had it,and everyone owns a bb curve 8520 now...this sucks.
