why is anybody not saying anything on this thread?
I guess there are not a lot of 8520 users running around here unfortunately.
hi, I own a BB 8520 and i have just upgraded the OS to 22.214.171.1242 from 4.6, but there are a lot of issues with this OS for e.g i am unable to rewind and forward videos, i am unable to use bluetooth for receiving data. can you please suggest a better version which can eliminate these issues.
Hello all, hope someone can help me? We got our daughter a blackberry curve 8520 for her birthday and the phone went nuts. It was eating batteries in about 10 mins and the phone was always hot. We returned the item to Amazon and got a full refund rather than an exchange. We then bought her the exact same model from carphone warehouse and it was perfect, she loves it and after we did the offer with apps from t-mobile she was over the moon. Yesterday her blackberry desktop software told her to update her phone, so she did but alas after doing the update she got a white screen with the dreaded 507 error! I have done some research into this and found that she has prob wiped her operating system. We tried to call blackberry for some assistance but failed at the first hurdle when they asked me to put in my card details as the information was chargeable, huh! I the proceeded to troll the internet for hours trying to find a fix to help her get her phone back to normal. I have found the most common answer is "you need to download your carriers os" what is this? How to find the blackberry curve 8520 t-mobile operating system??
I joined this forum in the hope that someone can help me resolve this issue asap as a teenage girl with no phone is becoming unbearable.
I was a little upset that t-mobile coudn't help me apart from giving me a number that requires credit card details just to talk to someone )

Take a look at this thread, All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos. It's a very good how-to, to get you comfortable with downloading the AT&T OS. Go through it a few times and ask any questions that pop up BEFORE starting the OS download. That way, you can get it down easily.
There's no harm in downloading and installing another carrier's OS as long as you delete the vendor file (explained in the how-to thread). It will not affect the warranty on the phone because it is an official RIM OS release.
Keep us posted, and I believe that sabisgeek has an 8520. I'll have him take a look at this thread so he can give advise as well.
Perfect answer. 10/10 *cheers*

Just follow the steps Ghostryder gave you and you should be fine. Let us know if you have any questions, and as Ghostryder said, make sure you ask before you try to install the OS, so that you can make sure of what you're doing.
Hi! I'm new in this forum but I want to tell you that I'm using OS 188.8.131.527 from AT&T and its running perfect. So I recommend it!
