    Amazing Blackberry mobile phone at this price , blackberry rocks

    Hey frnds,
    I bought this phone from Flipkart, got it in just 2 days.
    Presently I am using it and the best feature of this phone is the voice quality. The push mail service is awesome.
    The track pad is quite smooth , don't know about the other blackberry phones but like it. I got little pain in getting synched with my earlier phone but after some surfing I got it fixed by synching it using gmail account.
    Didnt used the app world because of the shitty services of Airtel.

    Sound Quality: The...

    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...

    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 emai...

    A matter of choice

    Look guys ,

    Unlike Android & Symbian based phones , This phone is not meant to entertain you . Blackberry , from the get go , has targeted the business class costumers . By this , I mean the one's who want to make the most out of their phone for official works & tasks other than entertainment .

    If u want your phone to entertain you , I would advice that you don't go 4 this phone .

    But if u like to reflect class , Go 4 it ! :)

    I love my phone ! :) :) :)

    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 o...

    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 mai...

    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.

    My first (Sort of) Smart phone

    I have got my blackberry curve 8520 for over a year now, and i thought will talk about just advantages and some problems this phone has given me.

    On the plus side first.
    1. Extremely great placement of keys
    2. Touch pad is the best in the industry
    3. Blackberry menu and navigation is extremely easy and well laid out
    4. Good reception and sound.
    5. The email function look feel and ease of type is unmatched.
    6. I am a rough user and the phone has dropped a large number of times, with no proble...

    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 looking at the keyboard.

    Since I carry 2 phones, 1 to speak & message and 1 to game/ surf/ watch videos/ etc., I think this phone plays its role perfectly as the former. I bought this to replace m...
