After using the 8300 and then the very crappy 8900(that hangs ever so often) i booked my curve 8520 via ebay and got an awesome deal to go along with it.
At first even i was against buying even a pencil from the net, but after getting delivery of the same model for a friend and having no issues with it. Ive decided to go ahead and get me one. All thanks to Jesal who too is getting the same deal. The dealer is well known to him so its safe.

Though I did configure a BB Curve 8320 for Cellone GPRS, I am not good enough to give you point by point method as th ephone is with my wife.

You will need Opera for the browsing to work and take a look at the following:

Airtel GPRS: Questions, Problems and Solutions

I hope this gives you the initial help you need!

Ive had a Curve 8300 and have recently upgraded to a curve 8520. I had backed up my BBM contacts to the memory card. Now when ive put the old card into the new device i cant restore my bbm contacts.
I can see the backup files in the explorer. But when i try to restoe it says Memory card encrypted to another device.
SO, I copy pasted the backup files (3mb) REM file to a new memory card. But it still doesnt restore the contacts.

What do i do..??

Sorry to be of limited help / no help.

New to the world of Blackberrys myself. Just made some changes yesterday and the Blackberry browser works now.

All the best with your efforts.

Just take a look the following page if you have not seen it.

Ross Barkman's GPRS/UMTS Info Page

Don't know if it will help, though!

Has anyone experienced longer booting time after a battery pull, after having installed the bbm5 update that fixes the file transfer issues?

I guess thats because encryption must be on. I saw some setting in the bb options which had this encryption thing in it. Quite possible that it was enabled & hence is not allowing any other device to open it.
Hope it helps.

Somehow some people in the TBHP group chat don't get the fact that it's a broadcast message and is sent out to everyone. Stop wishing about the new year at 3 am in the morning, people. The group serves no purpose apart from annoying people, especially at late nights. I'm out of the group. Have fun.

I have just got a Black Berry 8520 today.

It's still Box Packed - Redington Import - Nov 2009. All Sealed nicely in a black box.

I have absolutely no clue about a Blackberry and it's services. But with everyone carrying one I thought it's high time I got myself one as I have important mails coming all day long ( About 10 - 15 a day ) This way I am mobile.

My questions are -

1. Does the 8520 come with the Leather Pouch ? Or do I have to get it seperately.

2. I just looked on the Vodafone site and it says Lite Plan for 299 p.m. I am fine with it as all I need is mails really. Now I am going to get a new number. Do I get to make calls along with this or do I need a talk plan as well. If yes, then the cheapest one on Vodafone was talk 60. This means I pay 299 + 60 + Taxes Min per month ? Right ?

3. Is the WiFi fine on this ? I am in a WiFi environment for most of the time except when in the car so I would be accessing Facebook & T-BHP. Hope it should be fine ?

Any other suggestions people ?

Thanks a lot in advance for answering my silly querries

No, it doesnt. You need to get it seperately.

2. I just looked on the Vodafone site and it says Lite Plan for 299 p.m. I am fine with it as all I need is mails really. Now I am going to get a new number.

You are correct in your calculation.

3. Is the WiFi fine on this ? I am in a WiFi environment for most of the time except when in the car so I would be accessing Facebook & T-BHP. Hope it should be fine ?
Havent really used wifi on it too often, but it should work just fine.

Thanks a lot in advance for answering my silly querries
No problem, happy to help

Nope it doesen't

If you are a bit DIY type guy and your mails land on gmail.com domain then BB life would be lot more easier and cheaper for you i.e. around 100-150 Rs/month including taxes.

3. Is the WiFi fine on this ? I am in a WiFi environment for most of the time except when in the car so I would be accessing Facebook & T-BHP. Hope it should be fine ?
WiFi works flawlessly on BB handsets.

Any other suggestions people ?
Enjoy your BB and do not overload it with apps. :)

Thanks a lot in advance for answering my silly querries
Answers in BOLD, kindly go through it. Any sort of issue in operations you have my no. right ??

Is RIM planning to release an updated Curve 8900 with 3G and a better cam? My Javelin is beginning to show its age and I don't like the keypad on the 9700 Bold. The 9000 Bold is just too big. Is there a BB Tour with WiFi available in India?

Current Tour doesn't have WiFi. Tour2(Essex) will have Wi-Fi, optical trackpad and marginal faster CPU.
