Since GPS for 8520 is not available, it will use Network Towers to triangulate and determine your position.
How does this phone compare with the blackberry bold 9000? Any large difference with performance? I thinking of getting this phone for my partner to use for bb messenger.

To delete a theme: go to menu>options>advanced options>applications. There search for the plazmic file with the name of the theme. It should be something like this "com_plazmic_theme_name". If you can't see the name, press the trackpad on it once and it should give more info. Once you find the one to delete, highlight it and press menu>delete. You will need to restart the phone, so press yes when prompted to restart.
Hi guys. PLEASE help, my phone does not ask for a pin when I switch it on and I do want it to ask for a pin how do I fix this? And also I am unable to delete a theme at the options menu because there is no "delete" function when I highlight a theme?
justin, 27 Mar 2010this phone doesnt have fm right?if FM is what u r looking for then go to other nokia products or other manufacturer that have this feature!!! being used iphone n gemini for quite a long time which dont have FM,i dont see any valuables to me! coz i can hear radio from my car or from my radio..only MP3 matters to me coz radio sometimes play a boring songs..LOL..even during most of my time using many nokia's product b4,that have a radio also im not really listen to them..

LOL..that is y when i snap a pic under the sunlight also the quality of the pic is still awesome..but,if it is doesnt has enough light,it also still bright..enough to view anything n texting..then what makes u made such a comment like that??
lildude, 27 Mar 2010yeah i tried that but in same cases it didn't see the other cell phone i was trying to conect ... moredude..its very simple dude..i alwez exchange photos n songs via bluetooth wih my wife's E63..no prob at all..first u need to turn on both of the devices (u can do that in "manage connection" n tick at BT)..then,select BT >>search..when ur gemini has detect the other device then click on that device's name n start to pair(make sure that there is no other device's name there..if have,u need to delete it first)..it will ask u a numeric passkey..just type 123 or any num u like..then type the same passkey to the other device n begin pairing..once the devices has been connected then from ur device go to media player..press the menu button(BB logo),then u can find the option there whether to receive/send via BT..although the process is a bit complicated but to me it is actually simple after u have get used to it..hope this might help..
blackberrian, 22 Mar 2010nope..its true that BB is a bit complicated in sending n receiving pic or song via bluetooth..... moreyeah i tried that but in same cases it didn't see the other cell phone i was trying to conect to. now i don't know what to do, get a 8520 or 8900 ?
the 8520 is about as bright and the sun. so u really need sunnies while ur looking at it unless u want to burn ur eyes out. 8900 i'd more compare to the moon. easy on the eyes.
hi!! i am absolutely in love wit the bb 8520 but really apprehensive about it!!
nobody in my circle has it and i am confused if ill be able to use it properly!
a better deal could be nokia e71 coz i am kinda familiar wit nokia phones and looks like a safe deal!!!
and yea do we need to take a plan thru BIS for accessing WIFI too?
