I just got mine yesterday. Working for me well so far. It's my first blackberry so i didn't wanna spend too much money on higher models like the bold and storms.
I want to tell GSMARENA team that they have mentioned two different things for one product
In specification the expandable memory is Up to 32 GB and in latest review it is saying
Up to 16 GB. And I don't agree with GSM review because I am using 8520 from last ten days
All I can say that this is a very good phone if some one is looking for
I will give 08/10
i got my BB 8520. activate BIS frm service provider & keep enjoying BB services. BB targets Niche, not like Nokia tht evry kid plays with it.
Review is much pathetic.
mine's touchpad, music keys & battery time all good :)
the traction pad is crap, it doesnt work, no 3g, no gps, except for the bis, its pretty crap, i might as well use a sony
the phone is a great size looks stylish..however the phone is pretty much just meant for that. it does not have 3G which is a bit dissapointing as it is meant to be a smart/business type phone.
wow! wow! i have 8520 in my hand right now. and it`s...............
Not the best phone I have had :)
however it's decent and responding
much better than my old storm :)
i have this bb 8520 phone and its a wrong discition to purchase this,
how to set password or lock all the media files both video audio & pictures so that nobody can see it without entering the password? plz help it.

Just make sure that the web browser's settings are set to connect through public access points or something like that.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2009how do you use the bluetooth on this phone i can tell you that if you want to receive a media file, you have to go to menu and pick your media file, press the menu button again and receive file from bluetooth device. of course you should pair first with the other bluetooth device
just brought a Black Berry 8520 Curve in Thailand and moved over to maldives. Unfortunately the local mobile network Dhiragu can not support internet options on this phone. Could someone please suggest what should I do so that I can start browsing a technician recommended Opera download any views ?????
I agree with some people, y do they compare BB with Nokia E71 and E72, no doubt these 2 phones are good at their level.
But BB OS is something different then symbian OS.
BB is king in its own ways....
Damn, the review sucked. Every review on a gudget phone from these guys should be more flexible. They wrote this comparing
it higher ranked phones? For one thing, mine came with a 2gb card (region dependant) and sunlight legibilty is great. Too bad they expect every phone to have the same things as higher end phones.
Damn, that's a harsh review. I guess you guy's didnt get anything for free this time from RIM? ^^

All problem short out email related . god features for push & pull email.
but batry backup prolem.
OMG, I hate gsmarena's reviews about blackberry phones. Why do you have to compare all BB phones to the nokias E71 and E72? They will never understand what Blackberry is about. If you are thinking of purchasing a BB phone please don't read the reviews. I recommend you to find reviews in youtube and decide for yourself.
