An average Product

I had bought BB 8520 in May 2011. Usage generally involves heavy calls , messaging occasionally and frequent texting on BBM.
In March 2013 I have been experiencing sudden hanging of the phone. Inspite of reloading the software several times, there seems to be no solution.
Battery life has al…

Unbiased Review - DO NOT BUY.

I know it can be disorienting to have extraordinary and terrible reviews slapped in your face one after the other. But it is always better to see if negative reviews outweigh positives, and in the case of BB Curve 8520 - that is exactly the scenario.

Note: I bought a BB Curve in June 2011 a…

Please don't buy a BB.

BlackBerrys are rip-offs. The only reason they sell is because of the brand status (which is NIL in the United States BTW, but no one cares about that). I'm on my 2nd Curve 8520 & I hate it very much. I just can't get a new phone right now, that's why I am not buying one. In the first one, I dropped… (View complete review)

The Old Faithful...!!!

This is a simple, robust well performing phone for those who wish to talk and send email. If you wish to all the fancy stuff then you are looking in the wrong place. But give me this any day over all the touch screens when I want a feel of them ol' fashioned keys to be able to send messages without … (View complete review)

Practicality of a blackberry

If you don't own a blackberry already, and are in the market for buying a new smartphone, you generally start out by comparing its specs with android phones in the same range to check for the wide range of apps that you can run.
But people, then you are missing out on what a phone should be for.
Its not a PlayStation portable or a media center or a replacement for your girlfriend/boyfriend using some of those cheesy apps.

Its a communication device,period.

I am assuming that atleast 99% of the people buying a smartphone in India are well off and at least have acc…

worst service ever

i had bought this phone 1 years ago. suddenly a few buttons like a and return was not working. sent to service center . they declined to repair it. gave some technical reason. the bad part is they charge 220 even if they do nothing

Been a good run with BB... but

Im a Blackberry user, have worked on this and the piece is (was) pretty good until RIM came out with their 'closing down' news! With all the Andys and Apples out there, its become tough for the manufacturers to compete. Cant remember the last time when they came with an OS update for 8250!So, if you really want to buy a smarty for a long go, stay away from BB, Cause BB without Blackberry Internet Service is gonna suck bad!
Cheers :)

Awesome refreshing experience!!

First let me tell you that this is not just another phone in the market. This is a Blackberry that brings with it style and status quotient. Curve 8520 is an entry-level BB phone with almost all features that can be found in top-level BB. It is worth every penny of its cost!!

1. Super cool looks. Very professional.
2. QWERTY keypad. Very useful for typing msgs, emails and of course BBM.
3. Commonly used Apps are free and good.
4. Push-mail. You can configure personal and corporate emails and you will get an alert on arrival of new mail.
5. BBM. Great communic…

Nokia E5 offers much more at the same price

I am using BlackBerry Curve 8520 and Nokia E5 and I find E5 a better phone. GPS in Nokia E5 works great and has many times helped me to find the way but BB 8520 does not have GPS. In Nokia E5 you can edit word documents and rename the documents and create new word files. In E5 pdf files can be viewed clearly. In BB 8520 you can not create new word documents. pdf files can be viewed but the quality of the view is very poor. It's inbuilt memory is too small. The worst part is the availability of themes and applications. Nothing seems to be free and there's a price tag attached to most of the use…

Note: I bought a BB Curve in June 2011 and writing this nearly 2 years later. Don't go by that. I vividly remember experiencing the first of many glitches within less than a month.

Let me guide you as to why you should not buy a blackberry.

well i personally bought it for just showing off purpose...coz a bb is not that useful anyways...positive aspects of the phone are that it has a very nice camera...comparing your nokia, samsung 2MP cameras and a BB 2MP camera...BB was thumbs up, speakers are pretty impressive(very loud), internet surfing is quite fast provided on a wifi network.
Negative aspects include: no 3G(although it is an older model what can we expect), nd u need to have BIS(blackberry internet services) for IM and mail services and also BB App world which costs around Rs.399 on most networks or u need a wifi connec…

BlackBerry Curve 8520 is the best at this Price level

I have purchased a BlackBerry 8520 3 months back. It is one of the best and user friendly Mobile I ever used. This is the real
Phone for serious people and let the boys play with toys. 3G is
missing, otherwise almost all features are there.

Good Phone

its a great phone the keypad is the best feature of this phone, i.m's work great. however certain applications are a bit slow but too much shouldn't be expected at this price range. browsing speed is excellent for a 2g phone. Screen clarity is awesome.
