Recycling mobile phones can be a good way to help fund a new model - and Research In Motion (RIM) has pointed out why one of their handsets should be considered.

It is claimed the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is one of the firm's latest phones to offer solid messaging functionality, with a full qwerty keyboard and easy access to a range of email options.

RIM also said Facebook and MySpace users may also appreciate the speed with which they can access their profiles with the device, adding that its simplicity was also an attractive feature.

According to Carlo Chiarello, vice-president of product management at the group, the smartphone could "undoubtedly convince many more people to make the switch" to a new BlackBerry.

With celebrity RIM handset users including Jennifer Aniston, Britney Spears and John Mayer, consumers recycling mobile phones may also be tempted to opt for one of the manufacturer's latest phones for their apparent starquality.
