BB 8520 is surprisely very good phone - fast, strong, you don't need to restart (for example WinMobile, Symbian), e-mail and apps works perfect.
the only problem is the battery life in TALK TIME - i talk a lot (about 1:30-2:00h. a day) and every night my BB is in the charge. Standby mode is great but not for talking.
got this phone about a week back. worked perefctly fine.. all of a sudden it read JVM error 517, reset, and since then tried to remove and battery and restart many time but have not managed..am not able to re-install the software as well as the phone is not being detected by the system. totally frustrated at the moment.. any ideas out there??
I like this phone,using blackberry is awesome.How can I install anti-virus software?
Navin, 16 Dec 2009Hi,
How did u create email account with blackberry? i.e. email@example.com
TCHey Navin, I guess it would be better to ask your phone service provider for help with the gmail account. To create an email with BB, I just used the email setup assistant and at the bottom there was an option to create an account with them, I just put my id and password and that's it.
I want to download themes but when i download from the net all ext are COD and it is hard to install in my unit? can anyone help me how to deal with this installation of COD?
