I recommend this product

I bought this product relatively recently but I love it. I had a HTC S621 and there is no comparison, the blackberry is infinitely better in all respects.

My BlackBerry

By Marlene Bester

BlackBerry Curve 8520

I would recommend this phone to everyone as its the best in the market if you looking for a BlackBerry but have budget constraints. This is the one due to its good value for money and it is highly durable. I just love it and after using for 2 years I still don't want to part with it. It has become a part of me.

The ultimate phone for the ultimate housewife

This phone loves house wives! Every phone wishes to belong to a housewife so it can be used and abused and even get thrown into the wall sometimes! It's a fashion statement! They should make a waterproof prototype so we can chat in the shower as well. Please Note that you should keep your phone in your pocket when going shopping because other people will snatch it out of your baby's nappy bag!!
