I am looking to upgrade my handset at the moment as my contract is nearing the end. I was just wondering, whether I should purchase the BB Bold 9700 or the BB 8520. I could either get the BB 8520 for £20 a month for 18 months or for slightly more the BB Bold 9700 for £25 a month but for a slightly longer period of time, 24 months.
I was also wondering, if you do not have an added internet plan, can you still access the internet and the blackberry app store via a wifi connection?
Any help, I will be greatfull.
Thank you :)

honey, 26 Dec 2009how to set password or lock all the media files both video audio & pictures so that nobody can... morecreate password:
menu > options > password > password : enabled
then type the password..
this password lock the same way as the keypad lock...but it's impenetrable without password..so your messages, media etc are completely safe from others..
The other positive aspect I would like to add about this handset is the trackpad as opposed to the previous Curve models that had a trackball.
The excellent thing about the trackpad is that it is able to move freely and easily across the fingers and you're able to navigate across the menu very smoothly.
In addition, with the trackball at times it can get dirty thus, the trackball could get stuck.
So far, the experience I have had with this handset is a 9/10. Something that is very rare for a me, who is a very critical user of mobiles since I have worked in the industry for 3 years.
Hem, 03 Jan 2010I bought BB 8520 two weeks back...Brilliant phone brilliant advanced technology...But I have a... morei bet you still have the warranty,right?
why don't you go and have it replace/fixed with it?
rave, 05 Jan 2010the battery of my BB 8520,is very fast low,but in specs its 408hrs. stand by time hey,my bb's battery doesn't drain its power that fast. without any heavy usage,so far it can lasts for more than a day without charging..
bb 8520 is my latest phone. i love it so much & it does help me a lot..i'm a student & a lot of my study materials are in softcopy form...i can study on the go...with this bb,i don't have to carry around notebook/netbook.....
the wifi is kinda okay...surfing the internet is somewhat convenient...
2Mpx camera is nice,but i dunno how to turn off the 'click' sound everytime i snap a picture...that annoys me a bit...
overall,it's a budget bb..if you want a bb but doesn't cost you much, blackberry curve 8520 is just the right one for you!
Guys! This fone seems super... I am gonna buy it in somedays, umm but a friend told me something about its keypad light -> you dont see keyboard or the text on the pad in dark, is it so????
Nam if price is not an issue I would go for the Bold.
It's faster, it's got better screan resolution and GPS with this phone you really do get what you pay for.
The only draw back on the 9000 is the track ball that will eventually start giving some problems as apposed to the track pad of the 8520.
hi you can also compare this device with Samsung GT-B7320OmniaPRO. The price are nearly same. The design and specification is better and you can check your emails and other features just to activate GPRS/EDGE much much cheaper price plan than BlackBerry services.
im really amaze with the specification of bb curve,my question is can i read,write and edit microsoft office file? hoping for responce.
The other thing I forgot to add in my previous post but something that is very useful for Australian mobile users looking for a cheap smart phone is that this handset is affordable. Normally, BlackBerrys are normally expensive handsets and thus are on very expensive plans, however, this one can be purchased from Optus on a $29 Cap Plan. This is probably the only time BlackBerry will put a "cheap" BlackBerry handset.
So what are you waiting for? Go get it!
