Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.

Regards
Vineeth K.

Try entering any password in your blackberry until you reach 10 times password failure, it should be make your blackberry curve 8520 unlocked also erased all your previous data. After your blackberry unlocked, setup new password for your phone. If this solution not working the only option is reflash your blackberry phone. Good luck!

It has a white screen and saying app523


Follow the below steps to get rid of this error message: 1. Take the battery out and put it back in after 30 seconds or so
2. While the device is rebooting (or while the hourglass is still spinning), plug it into the PC
3. Then open the application loader and remove the 3rd-party application that's causing the issue
4. Worst-case is when you need to wipe the device using JL_Cmder.

BlackBerry Curve 8520 signal swing


#1 Your BlackBerry does not have sufficient Power
Check the battery charge level as shown by the battery icon on the top left of the home screen. No Power - Battery Charge Indicator does not show a charge or is very weak. The battery icon may be red. Charge the battery.
#2 You are Out of Network coverage area
Check the Signal Strength Indicator on the home screen. (1 to 5 bars, as shown below, indicating signal strength). If there is no signal, you may be out of range of the network.
If you are sure you are in range of the network, but show no signal strength, press Alt-Right Shift-Del at the same time. This will cause the BlackBerry to reacquire a network connection.
The process for this procedure is:
  • Press Alt-Right Shift-Del (The Del key is also the Backspace key.)
  • The screen will go blank, and an hourglass will appear. Wait for the hourglass to go away.
  • The startup screen will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • A screen that says Verifying Security Software will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • Check the Radio Tower icon.
If you are in Coverage Area of your Service Provider, You will get the network.
#3 Your Data plan is switched Off.
