You can download and use any carriers 8520 OS for use on your phone as long as you delete the file named vendor.xml before attemptiong to install the OS to your phone.

 

See your other post about 523 error for the fix and reloading the OS.

I don't know what country you are in, so it's hard for me to comment on that.

Re: I need an OS for my curve 8520

You will have to download it from a 3rd party website then. Which I don't really recommend. Or take it to your carrier, they may be able to reload the software for you, though I can't promise they won't charge you.

Not exactly...you can use any carriers OS that's made for  your model phone...as long as you delete the vendor.xml file if the OS isn't from your carrier.
