stella, 15 Nov 2009hey people!,,i have a question 4 this BB unit,,is the internet is ok?nd the quality of picture... moreHey stella! I have had this phone for about a week and I am honestly satisfied 100% with how stable the OS is. The screen look great in the sun and even though its only 65K colors, pictures look awesome. The web browser is ok for the most part. I've noticed that web pages sometimes load a little scrambled. Music is ok, i wish it had another speaker or atleast a bit louder. The camera takes good pics in good light. Since it doesnt have a flash its worthless otherwise. I dont really care since it doesnt lag, has a great keyboard, great screen and completely affordable. Great deal for the price. Just might want to buy a case for it since the back gets scratched easily. Mine has a thin line scratched into it :(
hey people!,,i have a question 4 this BB unit,,is the internet is ok?nd the quality of pictures and sounds?,,hoping 4 your answer people!!=D

lebo, 05 Nov 2009I can not use my blue tooth can some body please advice! hey lebo are trying to send or receive files using your bluetooth?
please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
what should i get out of this phone & the nokia e71?
I was so dissatisfied by this phone I sold it 2 days after a bought it.
1)Completely no access to my e-mails, only by blackberry enterprise option
2)completely no access to appworld, therefore no social networking apps etc.
3)Bluetooth not working properly.
4)no compatibility between the device and the downloads from blackberry site.
5)no specific support from internet although many problems are still unsolved by blackberry(u can realize it from the forums too)
Personal opinion: iphone is by far the most reliable, user friendly smartphone device ever.
If strange the BB Curve 8520 and BB Curve 9700 look a lot alike from their faces... their backs r def. diff.
Did anybody else notice this??

It's funny how people compare phones that are nowhere near being in the same class. This BB can't be compared to the n97. The n97 isn't that great. The iPhone's browser is smoother and only lacks flash support. This phone isn't in the highest rank either. It's an entry level bb. It's features are good for the price. I traded my n85 for this even though it cost me more. Nokia hasn't been innovative since 07. The n900 is probably the best thing since the n95. I am happy with this and will only exchange it for the new bold or something with a better camera.

it has multitasking too, in no way is it worse than this bb, and the price is justified by its many features
Always avoided Blackberry till a month ago when I got my 8520. I am hooked never another phone again!!

Nokia N97 is a very high end device with focus on multimedia n multi-tasking. N97 is super slow n has a lot of software issues. Not to mention da ridiculous price... Go for a Black Berry Curve 8520 is calling, txting and mailing as a primary focus and lil bit of multi-media features... Black Berry Curve 8520 is def. a value for money...

Hey ppl! I just bought this phone yesterday to replace my 1 month old Nokia N85! The nokia pissed me off because it deleted my music and pictures for no reason. I have to say, except for the weak camera w/o flash, this is one of the BEST phones I've ever owened! It beats my w705, 5610 XM, and my n85 minus the camera department. They but I don't really care because it has everything else. If this phone doesn't mess up then I'll be so happy and satisfied, this being my 1st BB. The camera is ok but doesn't compare to any of my nokia's. It beats the w705 and has beaten my old fav P1i. It is a little too plasticky but doesn't feel cheap. And this being an entry lvl BB (not high class), it is THE PERFECT phone for the price. I had trouble deciding between this and the Samsung i637. The Sam had a better camera and (at the moment) a better keypad. Now I'm writing and gettin better! Only 9 typos in thus so far! Mainly it is because I hit the $ instead of the m. Any way, this gets a 9.9/10! Only 'cause of the cam ;)
