There really is a lot to that question.

If the 8520 is doing all you need and it is reliable, the smart thing to do is save your money until you truly need a new smartphone.

If you want a new smartphone and you want a BlackBerry, my advice is decide which style you want and then buy the top of the line in that style that is supported by your carrier.

I don't have any experience with the curve models.

I guess there is not much difference between those phones. If you wish to use 3G services then its worth or else its not. I would recommend you to take Bold.

Not much except for the 3g, gps and slightly faster process. So not much of a difference.

My first Curve was a 8520. Went to 9300 for GPS. Tried Torch 9800 and 9810(keys too small). Went back to Curve 9300(felt more comfortable and I could track it if I misplaced it). So I guess what feels good to you is best, not necessisarily is currently the top of the line. Buy what is best for your needs(thoroughly research all Blackberries offered by your provider, and buy what you need and want.

I know someone with a 8520, And I pay 7.99 a month for my Curve 9300 3g,And I see a big massive difference within the BlackBerry's as I've noticed the 3G Has bigger keys.It has more megabyte and better applications.
