I'm not sure why this phone gets such high ratings. It's absolutely bullshit. I have owned 4 of them and every single one has been not new but barely used and have had nothing but problems. Where to begin? First one worked great for 1 year. Second one track pad stopped working (brand new after one month) so I took the track-pad from the first one that works great...second still does not work. Now the first one mysteriously will not work at all! Won't turn on or anything. Third one came with a battery that dies within 8 hours (new) won't unlock (keypad) with several other keys that will not work. Fourth one trackpad will not slow down with sensitivity settings turned down and likes to type a bunch of random keys in the middle of trying to do something like send a txt message and also like to randomly lock the keypad constantly while your doing something. I give this phone(s) 1 star rating because I see no option to give it a zero. Absolute garbage. Also I seen a ton of bad ratings for this phone on Amazon. Read full review

GREAT Phone and SERVICE
The device has a 2-megapixel camera with video recording. Image quality was decent, though colors looked a bit washed out. The smartphone supports stereo Bluetooth wireless accessories, and its Wi-Fi support allows you not only to connect to the Internet but also to make calls via a T-Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot or a T-Mobile home Wi-Fi router. The Bluetooth adapter worked well when I tested it with mono and stereo wireless headsets. Audio from the unit's earpiece was clear and loud, though not as rich and bassy as the sound from some other recent smartphones. Regardless, all calls were intelligible, even in moderately noisy settings like a busy cafeteria. When playing music, the audio quality of the handset was adequate but not remarkable. The bright, 320-by-240 pixel, 2.5-inch screen is clear and sharp, and ideal for viewing e-mail and playing video. The Web2Go browser had problems rendering some Web pages, but the "column view" feature makes it easier to read complicated pages by showing them a one column at a time. The Curve 8520 is clearly designed for the social networker. Aside from the Facebook app, the handset's instant messaging menu includes applications for AOL Instant Messenger, BlackBerry Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger. You can also download more programs via BlackBerry App World, which is preloaded on the device. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 has some great multimedia and social networking features that will appeal to younger audiences. But with no speedy 3G connectivity, the Curve 8520 can't keep up with other smartphones on the market. Read full review

A very nice low end blackberry without any frills.
This is a very cost effective device. Does everything you want from a low end blackberry device. No frills at all. It performs very well but it can be slow at times. Camera is lame and the battery life is not the best. But for less than 100$ you can't expect a whole lot. I really liked the compact size, ease of use, nice keypad and crisp/clear audio during calls.
