    I wouldn't do it if I were you. The difference in screen quality is enough to stick with the 8900! I'm an iPhone user who's been lusting after BlackBerry for a while now, and without hesitation, I'd say the 8900 is a better device. Yeah, I like the trackpad better than the trackball, but really, that's the ONLY good reason to downgrade. Worse screen, worse build quality, and flimsiness are reasons to stay with your 8900.

    Hope that helped!

    Ok, so I have a bold and an 8520, and my wife has a 8900. That being said I think the 8520 is a great phone. Does it compare to the bold or 8900 in screen quality? No. But it is not a cheap phone by any means. It is very sturdy and the rubber surround instead of a chrome bezel is awesome. The trackpad absolutely kills the trackball. You can't go wrong either way. The 8520 was a very smart choice for a replacement for the 8320 for rim. Check it out and see for your self, you will not be dissapointed.

    well i have the 8520, and i am honestly a little disappointed in its quality. Seriously, u can see the light bulbs thru the plastic keypad!! I am probbly taking it back for its cheap look, although its functioning isnt bad at all.

    Well I currently have a

    Unlocked Sprint Tour
    Unlocked ATT 8900 x2
    Unlocked Storm

    I just want to try stuff.
    Go for it I did. Its not bad. I use the media player a lot so the media buttons are cool. There on the top of the phone. Its also been kinking my 8900 **** with web speed. Get it, try it, don't like it flip it. A lot of people complain about Gps but I never used it. There is no flash on the camera but it is a wee bit faster than my 8900.
    Storm - getting rid of
    Flip - getting rid of

    If I had both, the 8520 would be my everyday phone and the 8900 would be the phone with all the beta stuff like os 5.0.

    I have had the 8900 for about 4 months now. It IS a great phone. I won the 8520 from Blackberry and have been trying it out for about a month. You get use to the trackpad and realize it is more reliable than the trackball. Also everyone seems to forget the media controls on top of the phone. I think this is a great addition for the BB, especially since I have a 16 GB card with tons of music. Yes there is no GPS, but how often do you use it? Yea the screen is lesser in resolution, but isnt that significant unless you are wanting to watch HD on your phone. Try it on for a while, you will be pleased.
