JRF, 13 Nov 2010Hi. I just wanted to give my opinion on your post. As a phone usar for the past 11 years, I've... moreApparently, you haven't used Gravity application that lets you stay connected to linkedin, foursquare, twitter, facebook, myspace and couple of other social networking mediums.
Yes, you have to purchase this applications license but, it guess its worth it cuz around a million people use Gravity on a daily basis trust me when I say you can get in touch with the developer of the application via twitter and if you have a problem on the application they come up with solutions within a few minutes of you tweeting the issue. Server shutdown takes time.
Try downloading few more applications on your BB storm and see how it freezes all my friends who have a storm curses RIM for this fatal problem of unable to store application on a memory card.
Any way u like your BB storm I will not comment about it any more happy BBMing!
Blackberry Wannabeee, 14 Nov 2010Your review and insightful elucidation in relation to the BB 8520 deserves a two thumbs up! I ... moreHey BB Wannabee thanks! That was my review of the BB8520 its more or less a personal decision when it comes to anybody who wants to purchase a new phone. Some people look for utility as an option other look for style and the rest look for usability, utility and style.
The review I gave was basically my personal experience with the phone and don't want somebody to be mislead by it if they wanted to get a BB for them self.

Unfortunately I have a problem with BB8520 the phone doesn't offer document editor like the high end phones this I compare with most other wm phones in the same price range which offers applications.
Its more of personal choice if you know BB suites you best keeping in mind your activities you'd go for it whether or not I or anybody gives a bad review about the phone. I felt I should speak up cuz these are a few problems I've faced with the 8520.
I want to buy the BlackBerry Curve so much but I don't want to pay a monthly fee in order to use the BBM.
So, is it possible just to download the "WhatsApp" application and use it with smartphones that have the same application without paying the monthly fee ?
Thanks in advance

You seem to be the BB Curve expert, so I hope you can help me. My 8520 is still running on the BlackBerry OS 4.6 version when I got it from my carrier last June. I can't afford to activate my BIS on top of my monthly subscription, but I'd love to upgrade to BB OS 5.
Another thing, my curve keeps going on SOS and always loses network connection (I subscribe to Smart here in Manila, Philippines). I was hoping that software upgrade can fix the problem. Would you have any suggestions?
Some specific sites perhaps aside from crackberry? Thanks amigo.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2010can anybody plzz suggest me on hws the camera of bbcurve 8520?? its urgent..plzz..m curently u... moreBoth are just 2MP cameras, but the Nokia E63 has LED flash while the Curve 8520 doesn't. The picture quality (under sunlight) of the Curve is however better than the E63.
If I were you, I'd stay with the E63. It's got more perks than the curve. You can get push email for free, IM and maps all over wifi (meaning for free), as opposed to the BB, you'd have to subscribe to BIS. BBs are only for those who can afford. If you're on the budget side of things, the Nokia E63 is the way to go. Should you want to upgrade your camera, get an E71 (3.2 autofocus w LED flash) or an E72 (5MP autofocus). It gives you what your E63 is giving you now, plus the camera you want.
On the BB side of things, if you really want one, the Bold 9700 has a better camera (3.2 MP with LED flash) but is costs twice as much as the Curve. Go figure...
peter., 15 Nov 2010Why pay for BIS with Blackberry, if you get Secure Push Gmail on Android FOR FREE ? Anybody... moreNot everyone uses Gmail. Plus, BIS is part of a BlackBerry Plan in most places, so it's just like payong for a regular Data Plan. And Android's push doesnt' always work unless you use a Gmail Account. I use Yahoo and 2 Live.com email addresses and I've read that Android doen't always play well with those email accounts.
can u plz tell me what are the apps that you can download for free to customized your phone
Hi! May I ask anyone if I would be able to change it's housing? Thanks!
