If yours is taking that long and doesn't boot-up at all, then you might have a corrupted file in the OS. You can either reinstall the OS or install a new one. If it's still under warranty then you should take it in for a replacement or something. For instructions on reinstalling the OS, go to crackberry.com and look for the forums called Blackberry 101 How To... there should be one on reinstalling and one for installing it to a bricked berry, just in case your PC doesn't read the device.
have purchased this handset a few days ago, i say can for email and blackberry messenger its amazing, by far better than any other rival, nothing comes close to it.
in terms of operating system, its not that great, alot of plan text sub menus and looks all to formal/corporate, not enough apps (even in blackberry app world) i've been using symbian nokias for 5 years and although it can have bugs, it can do alot more and has alot more apps.
never the less, this is a great handset and very addictive, you just cant help checking it very 5 mins for emails and bb pin messages, just wish blackberry could make the os look better and do more and more apps.
the new curve 8520 is the best best mobile I ever had...
And it is the best for its value...
Amazing work BB..

navin, 15 Mar 2010Hi, I own BB 8520 and now require a small input from you guys. Is there a setting to mak... moreI think you can't set a time-up for auto-keylock. What you can do is, as someone said, hold the A button and this will lock the keyboard, or hold the Play/Mute button and this will set it to Standby Mode. Standby saves battery a little better than keypad lock. Another thing you can do is set one of the shortcut keys to lock it. That way you don't have to hold down the button to lock it, just press the shortcut key.
can u plz check for me y im not getting any mssges from one of my friends that use hotmail acc in my ym?coz others who use yahoo acc can easily get noticed when they r online or not..n when they text me i can easily got the mssg via my gemini n chatting except for this one..but when this guy text me i only manage to get his msges when i opened my yahoo acc via my laptop..then of coz the ym in the gemini will auto log out n i need to log in back which to me some kind of hassle..y was that huh?
another one thing,i noticed recently when i got any notifications about ym,fb,msg,email n so on i saw that the icon will come up 1st,then only after 2-3 seconds delay my ringtones n vibrate will come up..i though that the moment u received any notifications about anything the icon n the ringtone + vibrate will come up at the same time..is it normal or what?do u have come across of this situation bro??

The screen is white with only a hourglass showing. You need to google, Blackberry white screen of death, for instructions how to reload the OS.

Thanx JRF, I have requested for the BIS from my carrier which they promised in 24hrs. I will get back here later to share my experience with my 1st BB.
I own BB 8520 and now require a small input from you guys.
Is there a setting to make keypad lock on auto mode, every time i need to manually lock the keypad...and i couldn't find the setting where it can be switched to auto mode - say time based.
Its a very basic feature is other phones....say phone's key pad gets locked after 30 secs. here i don't want phone to get locked with password prompt..only keypad lock.
