2 months user,
Pros: Loud speaker, BB Messenger works great, if u love to text or chat, this phone might be suitable for u... works great wit google map (pity dun hav GPS)
Cons: Camera kind of poor especially under low light, finger print nightmarez, unable to load flash websites n kind of down especially on FB, Battery life kind of short, limited applications n themes (not like Iphone tonnes of app)
In order to get some app download n install, it;s necessary to download BB WORLD APP (which not available in every country such as MALAYSIA etc). Kind of troublesome also...
Got new 8520, now how can one import contacts to BB?
it is possible to get contacts from gmail contacts list?
as i need i the email address for mailing purpose from my BB.
also any other way to add contacts (along with phone nos.) than doing it manually and how do we take back up of contacts list on BB
I have a question, I haven't been able to get my Blackberry plan activated (have it on prepaid right now) and since my BIS service was suspended until reactivating through the unlimited plan, I haven't been able to use my wifi. It keeps saying "error, conection to internet has failed. Contact your service provider if problem persists". Any idea how to use wifi until I get my plan?
Navin, 14 Dec 2009thanks JRF.. its done... now another issue i face is i haev configured 3 email accounts ... moreI replied earlier but it said a moderator would add it after checking! Well, I had 3 emails and they all had the same id (ex: 123@) but the only one I had trouble with was my hotmail account. When I activated them I reveived a message saying that everything was done correctly, but when my hotmail account was done the message said something about an "action requiered" that needed to be done. Something about changing the settings for my emails to be saved on my server or something. My yahoo and blackberry emails worked but not my hotmail. So I just deleted it. Maybe you recieved the same message?
Can this device sync with my contact on outlook? I was Windows Mobile PDA user before, curious with this Blackberry OS.
I havent used the blackberry yet. But I had a nokia e71. Before my purchase i was in love with e71. but that changed once i had it. its loaded with features that you dont need. the keypad is difficult to use. like many nokias, it makes a screetchy noise whenever you take a photo, even in silent mode.
so before you buy an e71, try it out for a day or two. some people love it and some hate it.
i totalli think this phone was a waste of production...no windows moblie???might as well not be a blackberry
Navin, 14 Dec 2009thanks JRF.. its done... now another issue i face is i haev configured 3 email accounts ... moreHmm, well I don't think its because of the similar names, I had 3 registered and all 3 had the same id. What I did have trouble with was my hotmail account. I used 3, 123@/yahoo/hotmail/blackberry.com, all of them said that they were set, I recieved the confirmation mail except that the one from
Navin, 14 Dec 2009thanks JRF.. its done... now another issue i face is i haev configured 3 email accounts ... moreI dont think its the id, I had 3, with the same id: 123@hotmail/yahoo/blackberry.com. I only had trouble with the hotmail one, the confirmation message said that I had to log on to the web and change an option that allowed my mail to be saved on the server or something like that. Maybe you need to check your settings also? I never knew what to do si I just erased it.
roodee, 14 Dec 2009No office editor? Get real...Yes it does but it needs to be updated to be able to edit, it starts out as a viewer.

It does have divx playback! i put a whole avi movie on and it plays it great...
melissa, 10 Dec 2009Whats better? The Blckberry Curve 8520 or the Nokia E71????Definitly Curve 8520.
I've had my Gemini for about 1 month and it has NEVER frozen or restarted. The battery life for me (I'm a heavy user of facebook, msn messenger, internet and music/video playback) 1 full day and with enough battery to stay on all night to charge with 2 bars left. Blackberry has proven to me to be a stable and dependable OS. My gf has a 8350i and I have this obe and they're both stable. Too bad it doesn't have a flash and divx/xvid support. Well, guess I'll be getting the Bold 2 later!
