The BlackBerry Curve 8520 seems to be making the rounds faster than any other device in RIM’s product line. Virgin is the latest provider to pick up the device, making it available on a monthly service plan. The cheapest monthly service plan involves getting locked in for 2 years, and for 25 EUROS a month, you get 200 voice minutes and unlimited texts, mail and mobile internet. The word unlimited comes with a fair use policy though.

OS 5 for the BlackBerry Curve 8520 leaked

Comments

CrackBerry and BlackBerryOS are reporting a leaked OS 5.0.0.348 for the BlackBerry Curve 8520. RIM have said that it won’t be longer than 2010 before we start seeing OS 5 rolled out across a larger gamut of devices so it shouldn’t be long until this is official. So if you want it now, and you’re okay with some third party apps not working, then go ahead and give it a try. Usual caveats apply.

Download OS 5.0.0.348 from MegaUpload.

If you’re getting the error “File Temporarily Unavailable”, all you have to do is keep refreshing the screen. It took me about 15 refreshes to finally get the download to work.

Now that the new BlackBerry Messenger is out, it’s worth taking the time to put some BlackBerry OS 5 downloads in one spot. Many of the leaked versions of OS 5 have been missing the new BBM, but now that it’s released, you may want to get OS 5 for your device and have the whole package.

  • More responsive experience and includes usability and visual enhancements such as inertial scrolling, spin boxes that make it easier to set dates and times, gradient shading on buttons and more use of animation.
  • Typing accuracy and selection have been significantly refined.
  • BlackBerry Browser improved with faster JavaScript and CSS processing as well as support for Gears and BlackBerry Widgets

Customers running BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 will gain the ability to:

  • Set follow-up Flags on the handset like they can in Microsoft┬« Office Outlook┬«
