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

Sushi, 12 Nov 2010I wanted a business phone and a non-touch screen phone that can do just about everything today... moreYour review and insightful elucidation in relation to the BB 8520 deserves a two thumbs up! I was planning to get one for Christmas though I happened to own a Nokia E52 and a Nokia C3....Then I realized upon reading that getting rid of my budget phone Nokia C3 was not such a good idea after all. A Million Thanks!

Sushi, 12 Nov 2010I wanted a business phone and a non-touch screen phone that can do just about everything today... moreHi. I just wanted to give my opinion on your post. As a phone usar for the past 11 years, I've come to expect a lot from devices. While I know there are phones with tons of features, I prefer having phones that really work. Windows Mobile 6.5 and below has been my least favorite. A simple task, such as setting a wallpaper, can take over 5 seconds, which is a lot when you want to show it off. I haven't tried Windows Phone 7 so u won't comment on that. My previous favorite brand was Nokia. I loved Nokia phones. So many features packed into relatively small packages. Just one problem: Symbian. Yes, you get a lot of features but Symbian isn't capable of handling everything. My n95 and n85 both had issues. My worst phone was the n85. Like you said, you can install apps onto the memory card. But, what's the point when some apps easily become corrupted and mess up your memory card. Sure you can reformat it, but sometimes you can lose so much. I use my phone for snapshots of moments that mean a lot and Symbian deleted 87 pictures before I could do a backup. Once I even did a backup and it wasn't usable. Now, BlackBerry. Yes, I hate not being able to install a lot of apps, but seriously, if I want apps it won't be with Symbian or Windows. Apple and Android are the best for apps. BlackBerry phones are messaging devices. Chat, social networking, emails, all that with RIM's push service, are great on my Storm. Nokia Messaging isn't stable enough or fast enough to push email through but my BlackBerry is. The only issue I see with emails is "truncated due to size", but a BIS update is said to fix that. I haven't paid for my Docs To Go update and I can still edit/create new docs for work and the email client let's you read PDFs. You can't read PDFs unless you receive them via email or update. No, I'm not a "boring business man" or "too lazy to say hi to my neighbor in person". I am a 23 year old guy that helps run the family business and has Facebook and WLM as well as BBM contacts that I keep in touch with every day. My BlackBerry only fails me when my carrier's network fails and that rarely happens. I do, however, really really hate having limited space for apps, but I do have and iTouch for that.
this handset is amazing! i got mine from Tesco on a o2 tariff, you also get £100 gift card! what a buy. defo recommend
