BlackBerry Curve 8520

ayn, Rate it all!
4 November 2012
  • Summary: I had this and I absolutely loved it. Right up until I didn't, then I absolutely hated it. This thing was like a mini-computer you could take calls and texts on. I would store all of my clients' information in this thing. I could look at and see (for example) that on Monday at 7, I had client X who had a terrier mix with socialization issues.

Worse BlackBerry EVER - DO NOT BUY

Bunks, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Beware of this model.  I renewed my 2 yr contract and upgraded my phone to the 8520 - so I thought it was an upgrade.  My first one in Feb, 2010 began turning off when ever it wanted after one month: in the middle of a call, in the middle of a text or an email.  It never got wet or was dropped and I kept it in a hard case made by BodyGlove.

"NO GPS! Can't use Google Maps, Foursquare, Flixster"

  • Pros: It doesn't blow my head off when I'm making a call.
  • Cons: No GPS which means you can't use: Flixster, FourSquare, Google Maps, etc. The sound quality on this phone is HORRIBLE! That means the speaker phone and the small ear speaker. It is actually painful to talk try and have a conversation on this phone. LO

  • Summary: Could not get WiFi to work with a DHCP IP address for internet access, even though it seemed to indicate an active connection with my router.
  • Pros: Navigation and selection via the center button is pretty convenient. Looking forward to another chance with it...
  • Cons: Received opened item, was supposed to be new in box.

"Worse cell phone I have ever owned :("

Ladygem80, CNET
14 February 2011
  • Pros: There isn't much I like about this phone
  • Cons: Had to replace it after 5 months because the track pad kept freezing, 5 months later the "new" phone started doing the same thing! The camera sucks on this phone as well, very blotchy looking pics :(
