ive had hands on experience with this phone i stuk it up my arse
does the 8520 have documents to go? or can it edit MS word files and such?
no 3G for 300 euro? BB are crazy and their customers are even more.
How is the new trackpad? That is the only thing stopping me from buying this phone. Worried where it would stop responding to the touch....
I currently use the Bold 9000 and it is beginning to break down a little after I dropped it multiple times. I am planning to switch to this, should I? Would it be considered a downgrade?
Bought BB8520 after comprehensive research and it met all expectations. A great buy.
indonesia is the third country that have released after usa n canada or the first in asia..xl have released it..it costs 3.9 million in idr n including 16 gb..
nice BB for the best price... (^^)b.. track pad was awesome... nice control pad..
Oh my, i got this phone on Monday and i absolutely love it!
Email is awesome, took 24 hours for the BIS to set up but once it came through email is fantastic.
On device facebook is average, not as good as real facebook, but does have some excellent points such as the picture viewing.
As a planning/scheduling device it is fantastic!
Typing is really good!
I have found battery life to be excellent, but obviously need more time to properly see how this holds up.
Screen quality is good, I haven't had any problems.
Screen size is awesome! especially for viewing web pages, pictures, email and everything.
Sound quality is superb, was listening to music the other evening and the quality of the earphones was crystal clear, was listening to it on the lowest it can go, i was really happily surprised!
I have had one or two problems with the internet browser and it not wanting to open up certain pages that I commonly use and normally open with Opera Mini on my Nokia.
All in all i am so happy with this phone and highly recommend it!

Mart, 14 Oct 2009Just got my bb8520. cant set up my email which is reason I bought it. v dissappointed right no... moreGo to options , advanced options , enterprise activation. Put in email and password then click on activate now.hope it works.
hey guys can someone tell me whether BB 8520 can read/edit -word, excel, powepoint, pdf? Does it support podcasts?
I have mine for about a month now. Upgraded from an 8310. Yes I do miss having gps but I didn't use the gps often enough for it to be a real issue. Otherwise much prefer it to my old phone. Feels twice as fast as the 8310. LOVE the new trackpad. MUCH nicer than the trackball. In sa we have a bis account for about $7.50 per month which means unlimited internet and emails. A colleague has a E71 and I much prefer my 8520. ONCE YOU GO BLACKBERRY YOU'LL NEVER GO BACK !
