    Question Help with 8520!!!!

    Hey guys this my sound a bit weird but my mom found a curve 8520 inside of the uniforms she cleans ( RIM Uniforms ) anyways the unit does not have a battery or a back cover and also a front part at the bottom of the unit.....my question is would it work if i put a sim card or what would i need to do in order to make it work???
    BTW i got a battery and it turns on but its locked.

    Any tips would be much appreciated!!!

    My honest opinion of that would be to find the owner of the unit. It may have already been reported lost or stolen and rendered inoperative.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    Exactly. You can call the carrier and report that you found it. It's probably of no use to you at this point.

    8520 and 8530 are the same just different radios the phones look identical. If its from the UK its an 8520 and if it was a tester phone it will be useless to you anyhow as RIM will have blocked the PIN number. And the ESN. THe right thing to do would be take it back to the company in which the uniform came from. But on that note since its not your phone we are oging to have to close this up

    THank you
