The 8530 and 8520 are virtually the same phone aside from the fact that the 8520 is a GSM phone and works on 2g and 3g but 8530 uses CDMA technology only and cannot be used on a GSM network. Data works on both CDMA and GSM.
Currently I am using a Nokia E73 with Tmobile 4G prepaid. I am very satisfied with the phone as at $60 a month you have unlimited talk/text and 2GB of data at 4G speed. I use the phone as a GPS and I love the Nokia Maps. I bought a Blackberry Playbook recently and virgim mobile does have a $50 unlimited BB plan for Curve 8530.
My question is how good in the blackberry maps, does it provide accurate turn by turn navigation?
If it does not, I may not switch because this is a CDMA device, I am not sure if it can ever be moved to any other service provider and the E73 is better in every other ways.
Animator, 05 Nov 2011What iz the major Difference Between Curve 8530 and Curve 8520... blackberry 8530 is capable of 3g while 8520 does not. It means that you cannot browse the internet using your service provider if you have the 8520. But don't you worry since BB has its way to connect to the internet aside from the wifi :)
