BB Curve 8520/8530 :: 8520 Phone Speaker Breaking Up

Jul 5, 2010

got a 8520 a couple of months ago, and after two weeks the phone speaker would break up when making a call, so you could only hear 1 in 3 words someone was saying, and inbetween was silence.T-mobile sent me a new one out next day, but now after 4 months the new one has started doing it.Can make calls fine with ear piece, speakerphone is working for playing music, haven't tried it for calls, and handset speaker works fine for music too, but breaks up when phoning anyoneThe second time it happened was just after okaying an upgrade. Anyone heard of this before?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Is The 8520 Housings Compatible With The 8530?

Apr 6, 2010

is the 8520 housings are compatible with the 8530? I know the answer is probably yes because there's no differences at all in the phone not like the 83XX series. Also, mine is Grey OEM by Telus. I just don't know what colour i'll customize it, any Idea? I like black and white just like my old Tour, but there's white 8520 so it would be less unique

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Unlocked Att 8520 For Tmobile - Can Setup Email

Aug 11, 2010

I have an ATT 8520 Curve unlocked to work with a tmobile sim card and have a few questions...Now that's unlocked I cant setup an external email account (hotmail, gmail, etc...) that icon is missing from the setup section. how can I get that feature? can I also use the bbm feature? I added a friend (and vice-versa) but it just stays as pending. is it possible to bbm? for the above 2 do i need to get the bb data plan so they can work? I've read elsewhere that the best way to get the features would be to load the tmobile handheld software. I went to tmobiles site, I enter my ph# - select the 8520 - click on handheld and it takes me to their 'shop for phones' page. I guess they now by the number that i dont currently have a bb. So I tried a friends ph# from tmobile who has a bb and it still took me to the 'shop for phones' page. So I Am hoping it's just a link glitch going on right now. I did download from this forum the 5.0 OS "8520wifiM_PBr5.0.0_rel860_PL5.2.0.47_A5.0.0.509_W ind_Hellas.exe" which obviously is not tmobile. What would loading this different OS allow me to do? Or what features will I have available? and I have lowercase 'edge'.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Official Notice Of Passing Over Of 8520/30

Aug 3, 2010

Mods, Please do not move this as it is not a discussion of OS 6 but of the 8520/30 and it's lack of OS 6.

We now have official word from RIM via press release today that unless you have a 9650, 9700, or Pearl3G you have to buy a new phone to get OS 6:"Subject to carrier certifications in the months ahead, the new OS is expected to be available for the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700, BlackBerry® Bold™ 9650 and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 3G, as well as future BlackBerry smartphones."

That being said, are you going to be dumping your 8520/30 for something new just to get OS6?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: 8520 Will Not Turn Back On

Apr 19, 2010

My 8520 was working fine last night but the battery was down to 10% charge.

Charged the battery up and phone worked fine and I turned it off before going to bed.

The phone turned on fine this morning and was showing a full charge. I did turn it off when I got to work and when I went to turn it back on when I went to lunch I got nothing. The LED glows briefly and faintly when I try to power the phone on.

I tried hooking to my car charger but with the same results.

Jun 16, 2010

I did a search but apologies if this has been covered already...

I just got my new Curve 8520 from O2 (UK) and the software version is this seems to be really old?

Should I try an OTA update or should I force one using the links I can probably find on here?

I'm having a few issues with gmail not notifying me and a few other things, and I figure they have upgraded software for a reason!

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Updating Firmware On 8520

Jul 10, 2010

I'm having a bit of a problem updating to the latest version of firmware for my 8520. Currently I've got v4.6.1.314 but Vodafone have released v5.0.0.1168 so I'd like to upgrade to that.

I've already downloaded and installed the firmware on my computer but when I try to use the App loader to install it on my blackberry it tells me v4.6 is the most recent available.
Any ideas why v5 won't show up when I try to install it?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Phone Off Or Antenna Off When In Low Service

Apr 7, 2010

I got my sprint curve 8530 last thursday, and so far haven't been having a good experience.

I have horrible battery life with the device. With brightness at 10 percent, ten second backlight, locking the phone when not in use, having wifi and bluetooth off when not in use, and phone off or antenna off when in low service (about four hours), I am lucky to get through the day with a little bit of heavy use (web browsing). I have a few minutes of calls, and mainly texting and web browsing with some email. I expected better battery life out of a blackberry!

The reception on my phone is bad. I have five bars of sprint coverage at my house, but when I pick up the phone and start using it the coverage drops to two bars, zero bars, searching, and can't keep a signal. With one bar of service my phone won't send messages, and then I will lose the bar where my old phone would get one bar solid, sometimes two bars.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Sprint Had To Unlock Phone

Jul 12, 2010

I currently have a Pearl with Tmobile. My friend gave me his Curve 8520, but his phone was with Sprint. I went to Tmobile and they said that Sprint had to unlock the phone. Sprint said it couldn't be done. One of them are lying to me, but I don't know which one. It shouldn't be a big deal. It should be just changing the software. What should I do?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Phone Resets When Plugged Into USB

Jan 28, 2010

I just got a 8530 from work and the second I plug it into my pc by the USB cord, it shuts the phone off and the red led comes on. Then the white spinning clocks comes on and then back to the red led and keeps resetting. It does this on both curves we just purchased for work. Same PC works without a hitch for a 9550 and a 9630 same usb cord. As soon as I remove the usb cord from the curves, they boot up fine. Any help would be nice.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Way To Cache Web Pages In Phone's Memory

Sep 9, 2010

I'm using the native browser on my Curve 8530. With the connection I have, a web page will often take 1-2 minutes to load, if not longer. When I'm reading a page, I will sometimes switch websites, accidentally or intentionally; if I do this, and then try to go back to the page I was reading, I have to wait 1-2 or more minutes all over again before the page is visible.Is there any way to cache web pages in the phone's memory (as you can do on a normal web browser like Firefox), so I don't have to keep going through this?(I've been told you can't have multiple pages open at once on a Curve 8530, but if this is wrong, I'd be happy to hear it.)

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Phone Is Taking Longer To Reboot

Jul 4, 2010

I've noticed that when the Blackberry loading page start up and the little status bar reaches full, it takes a few seconds longer to bring me to the home page. Before, it would fill up, then like 2 seconds later the carrier splash page would come up and then my homescreen. Now, it stays on the black Blackberry loading page for at least 10 seconds before the carrier logo comes up. Is this normal? I don't my phone to die on me or something.
