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.
just got bb8520, first bb, so far so good, but have a question. My call waiting is not working properly, called my service provider they say it's activated, told me to check under "options" call waiting should say "yes". there is no such thing under options. I've tried to find it no luck.
Can anyone tell me how to set up or check on my call waiting?
Wow, I had never read such a mean review... Dudes over at GSMArena almost used the Curve 8520 as toilet paper... lol!!

does blackberry have navigator program so that i can use it while driving
Just read the review partly. Do you really think BB don't appeal to wider public? Well that's my experience from a UK shop floor: all the kids want a BlackBerry so if RIM did a prepaid version it would sell like a dream. Samsung already picked it up - hence Corby Qwerty or whatever it's called. 8520 is more popular than 8900 because of it's low price tag. Both get Google Maps so people aren't fussed about proper SatNav. Also - who really wants to take photos with a BB? 8520 was a great idea and though it's nowhere near the Bold most people don't care as long as it's a BB.
just got my bb.was a gift actually wanted the bb bold. So not really happy about it.
noticed it is limited in some functions like the 3G,internal memory amongst other things compared to the bold
Pls could u guys tell mi what is fantastic about this bb? And pls what is the difference btw a Tmobile bb made in hungury, and a plain bb made in mexico?
Hi. Noticed a couple ppl have problems with using the wifi. Bought this phone today and haven't used it much yet but I can use the internet through wifi. After you set up the wifi connection go to settings, advanced options, browser. Change the default browser settings to hotspot browser then save. This way if you didn't take out a bb plan, you can still use the internet where there is wifi connection. Hope this helped.

BB8520 :)u have to be either at home( if u have wireless internet at home of course) or at a hot spot(that is like mcdonalds or somewhare where they will probably have a sign on the door saying u can u se wifi in here or something like that hope it helped x

I got my emails, updates from facebook, msn conversations and surfing forums while on the go and didn't have issues. The only down side like I said is the fact that you can't stream vids. But, again, there's wifi for that.

Which is faster and can be used to stream media and web is faster. Edge can't really stream vids but you can through wifi. But I'm sure I read something about the Bold not being as fast as other 3G phones because the data goes through BB's servers to fit better on the phones or something like that. Of course you can use Opera.
can anyone please tell me how fast the internet is while using blackberry data compared to a i phone or anything else?
faisal, 05 Dec 2009this model is my first bb i enjoy it so far except it's bluetooth i can transfer files to an... moreThe reason you cant recieve files is because a blackberry doesn't recieve files like a nokia or samsung due to security of the phone. If you want to recieve a music or picture file, you go to media on the blackberry devise, select pictures, ringtones or music, then click on the blackberry button and select recieve via bluetooth. The blackberry device will then accept the file you having sent to your blackberry
