User opinions and reviews

  • dipa

could anyone tell me that 4g sim can be supported in blackberry curve 8520???

  • Seb

10 dollars is pretty expensive I'd say, but yeah it's a cool phone that I still use. I've been having network problems recently, may be time to retire. Plus it's going to lose all support after 4 Jan 2022.

i just bought this phone for 10 dollars at a thrift store and it works amazing for being 12 years old
