    Hi. I'm really looking to try to get a Blackberry 7520 to use with Boost Mobile, mostly for internet but also for a cellphone. In the most of the eBay descriptions of the 7520 they say that only some can use data. Does anyone know what that means? I don't want to buy the wrong Blackberry.

    If you configure it correctly, any 7520 can browse (using Opera) and handle data. No SMS texting of course (unless and until someone figures it out). I can't get over-the-air downloads either. Still working on getting mine fully set up though.

    the new 8350i is your best bet for Boost. Everything works 100%. I just got mine the other day off of ebay, Overnight shipped for $237

    Go to eBay and search eBay member ourworldphones, he will sell you a 7520 that works with boost. - preinstalled software like gmail, google map/gps, AOL IM etc, and even with OTA downloads.

    The answer to your question is, some 7520 have not been cleaned up properly to work with boost

    When you say everything works 100%, do you have native SMS working with the 8350i like any regular phone. Because my colleague at work has one, and everything works - OTA, gmail, internet/opera mini and native browser but SMS doesn't work!

    Check out posting titled "7520 SMS workaround" in a few days, I'll be posting some good info about OTA download fixes and SMS

    The 7520 was my favorite Nextel Blackberry. Durable as heck and made better than the junk they make today!

    Hi. I'm a BB newborn. I have a fully loaded 7520 with Opera Mini, etc., and I have no idea how to begin doing anything other than making a phone call. Would someone kindly direct me to easily understood instructions?

    Also, I am trying to decide whether to buy an 8350i with the regualr plan or the new 8330 from Boost for $60/month. Would someone either direct me to an answer elsewhere, or else summarize the pros and cons? (Remember-I don't know any of the lingo yet, so I don't understand the thread that discusses this. I need Boostberry 101speak!) Thanks!

    I'm having issues doing this. I did all the steps like deleting the browser, restarting it, legacy restore ect. Problem is when I get to that point where you go into the application loader to check next to browser java and help it doesn't show up at all. Just my other applications. I'm using desktop manager 4.6. All the service books are there but no browser. It sucks cause I like my bb7520. Do you know what I can do to get the browser on so I can have NOL browser and mms working again?
