When that flip is closed, it's a proper phone, with buttons. You call, you answer, you read messages.
Now when flip is open, it's a pure smartphone, same that we currently use, with stylus. I was always careful, and never dropped it, so I actually have no idea how fragile it is.
But believe me, it made total sense to use it for business purposes.
The model doesn't really make any sense. What's the extra added value of having that weird flip over keypad? It breaks easily, it seems very uncomfy to use and basically everything about it is useless.

tanx a lot
i had this phone for 2yrs now. the service here in philippines sucks. the first problem i had is its flip cover. they had to change the whole cover and it takes a decade to get it back and u cant buy its accessories anywhere here. damn. not worth my buck.
can anyone teach me how to upgrade the operating system of p505 win2003 into windows mobile 5 or winmobile 6.0??? pls help me... email me @ email@example.com tnx
i really like using this phone instead of SE's P910... though d keypad only gives you numeric function. 1 out of 10, i'll give it an 8...
I hav p505 . you can change your os easily . just go to asus website . then go to p505 downloads . then select the os you want and download and follow the instruction . there is just a mistake . when you copy the os on flass memory then restart it as in instruction it takes more than half an hour to install please be patient
I used it for more than 2 years and now I experiencing flip open problem too. When ASUS menu is enabled and the front panel is to be opened, instead of becoming PDA mode, the phone mode (half screen) occurs. Touch screen doesn't reacting even if I disable the ASUS menu. I have to open flip like picture in the left up corner shows, then the touch screen becomes usable.
Will not buy PDA with flip again :-)
Does anybody know how to change french os to english one? Is it possible?
my P505 is only 6 mo. old & experiencing flip open problem. When ASUS menu is enabled and the front panel is to be opened, instead of becoming PDA mode, the phone mode (half screen) occurs. However you can still use the PDA phone by unabling the ASUS menu.
The headset is great!
Battery is needs to be recharged daily
