Excellent value for money. Extremely user friendly.
This is a very lightweight Blackberry Device. I bought it as an introduction to Blackberry and absolutely love it as it's easy to use with a lot of features for the user who does not want all the complications of a Blackberry Torch. Its design is sleek and classy. Absolutely love my purchase. Only disadvantage is that there is no flash on the camera, other applications can be downloaded to the phone if necessary.

BlackBerry are trying hard. People like us have been moaning for ages about the trackball that featured in previous curve models. The trackball that often gets stuck and develops a mind of its own. And now they've come up with an alternative: a touch-sensitive Trackpad. Good work, but somehow they've fumbled the keyboard, and the beautifully responsive keyboard that appeared on the 8900 has been replaced by one that just doesn't quite have the same sureness of feel. What a shame! Still, the combination of trackpad plus QWERTY keyboard isn't a bad one, and it sure beats struggling to write an email with a conventional alphanumeric keypad!
Anyway, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Let's take a step back and survey the BlackBerry 8520. What is it's place in the BlackBerry family? It's not a 3G phone like the BlackBerry Bold, and it's missing features like GPS that appear in the BlackBerry 8900. No, this is an entry level member of the curve family, equipped with a basic screen and a really clunky camera. But it does have several strongpoints - the push email application and QWERTY keyboard that have made BlackBerries famous, excellent connectivity and some decent memory. The connectivity includes WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate, plus the benefit of a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting headphones or plugging into your car stereo.
As a budget BlackBerry, the 8520 has its place in the line-up, but the cost saving compared with the 8900 isn't very much. On balance, we'd prefer the BlackBerry 8900 to the 8520, despite the trackball vs trackpad issue. The 8900 is a better featured phone in several ways, and the outstandingly good keyboard on the 8900 is a major plus for anyone serious about mobile messaging.Read full review

I love the trackball aspect of it, the layout of they keys,the wi-fi capability and it has good feautres.I love the trackball and wifi feature they added to this phone but I dislike the graphics and the camera's megapixels. Other than that, great phone, easy to use, love the features!!!

Perfect phone, perfect condition
I absolutely love the white blackberry curve 8520. It's lightweight, sleek and has the power to complete day to day tasks and multi tasking. Although the querty keyboard could be of slightly better quality, the keys themselves and trackpad make up for it. I switched from blackberry to the iphone, and then back to blackberry. I don't regret it one bit.
The curve 8520 is also good for those of you who are new to the blackberry world and want to get acquainted with all that Blackberry has to offer. It's easy to use and does not compromise any features. The curve also has a camera.
