      The 8520 is incredibly outdated already. Go for the 9300/3G at least.

      terrible DEAL!!!

      I got my bb curve 3g (9300) a month ago. £25 a month.

      8520 is outdated, its almost 2 years old, all phone companies are trying to get rid of it. Get the Curve 3g, it came out in september.

      At least get the Curve with 3G.

      I used to have a Bold 9700 but got bored of it. I do miss BBM though.

      it would be cheaper to buy the phone and get like a sim card that you pay £10 a month on PAYG with unlimited texts and internet.

      There are no decent BB's :awesome:

      Seriously though, why are you interested in a BB? They really aren't that great. Is this your first conctract?
      BB's sit at the bottom of the smart phone range and barely top the chart for phones that aren't.

      Really? They seem quite popular, the thing about a product that becomes SO common and SO commonplace is that it becomes kind of trendy to criticise it and 'rebel' against everyone buying it - Everyone i know say they're pretty nifty..
