I bought this phone to replace an older model Blackberry for my wife. I wanted the same model but mine are so old they are not available anymore. This model is fairly similar with some upgrades. I was able to set it up easily. Looks like it is more internet friendly, but we don't use that just talk and text. I liked it enough to buy another one for myself (mine is pushing 4 years now). Got hooked on Blackberry dependability when my daughter was sending 8000+ texts per month! Got at least 30 months out of that phone before putting it on the reserve list.

Great unlocked phone for 150$
I purchased this phone after my Blackberry 9700 broke upon accidentally dropping it while I was shopping. I didn't have mobile insurance plan on AT&T and I was a year away for my contract to expire. It seemed like my only chance to get another blackberry for a decent price was ebay, so I did. I looked at the 9700, the newer and older models. Also, I was reading about Blackberry 10 coming out the same year so I decided to buy this model and hold up until Blackberry 10 came out to purchase a current generation phone. The 8520 is a great phone, I know because my sister had one and her phones take all kinds of punishment. The phone lasted for almost a year (contrary to other phones she's had that usually last for 3-6 months. She later opted for a 9000. I purchased this one since it's about the same size as the 9700 with some key differences like CPU Speed, RAM and screen. The phone is great, the keyboard is not as comfortable as the 9700 but it does the job well, and the battery lasts a full day with moderate use of facebook, twitter, phonecalls and sms. I would recommend it to students like me who want a phone and not a toy that can distract you while in class with game apps. This is very useful for people who rely on their email. A must have for people with a small business.Read full review

It's a great phone for people who doesn't have a lot to do.
Its a great phone though the screen isn't cool enough as other phones, but if you are looking for something casual and doesn't judge your fashion trend i think this is the better choice. I like the scrolling button because it let you navigate easily on the phone and also it's easy to use.

Awesome product, great value for the money.
Great phone for reasonable price, remember to get the blackberry internet plan added as well! I bought this item as a gift for my boyfriend and also so I could communicate over bbm. It's very easy to handle and get use to, so I would recommend it to anyone who loves using blackberry phones. It compares very well to others and it's not a hassle to have this phone around. So if you want a good phone at a great price, I insist that you invest in this one! Thanks for listening.
