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!!

Pros:
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...

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...

Average

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...

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.
