The smallest, lightest BlackBerry yet offering a full QWERTY keyboard, the Curve 8520 is wrapped in a sleek, metallic finish with clean lines and soft edges. Its compact size is crammed with incredible features which include a 2.0 MP camera with 5x digital zoom, a versatile media player with Bluetooth connectivity and stereo headset support, and support for a wide variety of multimedia formats.
The 2.46-inch diagonal, 65,000 color, 320x240 pixel screen features light-sensing technology that adjusts the backlighting of the screen as well as the keyboard, based on your environment. Customizing the screen with your own themes and wallpaper will keep yours from being confused with those who've also purchased this popular "smartphone."
Easy to use and navigate, you can adjust the control sensitivity through the Settings menu, making sure your BlackBerry does things exactly how you like it. The improved key spacing and tactile response earn raves from almost every user. It's even equipped with a 3.5 mm headset jack, so you can plug in your favorite headphones! RIM continues to innovate and improve their product line, and the Curve is an exquisite example of their attention to detail. Try it out today!
LOVE This Phone
Pros: I'm not sure as to why not having the tMobile label would get this phone a bad review. I have actually been using this phone for 4 months now and LOVE it. The internet is awesome, a little slow but fully functional. Love the scroll, good volume, can store music. It's just a great phone. I bought a no scratch screen cover from here and a gell cover from radio shack. Great phone. I will buy from newegg again
Cons: Battery has a short life if you use the internet often and you can't download apps. I haven't figured out how to set multiple alarms so I am unsure if you can do that.

Not what I expected
Pros: It arrived fast.
Cons: Not what I expected. Phone arrived in a box that was not that of what the picture displayed. Opened the box and found that the phone was manufactured by some 3rd world country company and did not have the T-mobile logo on it
Other Thoughts: Newegg, however, was very courteous and understood the situation and gave me a refund, which which is why i gave the rating 2 eggs instead of one. Situation is not all newegg's fault, I blame their third party supplier.
