> In reply to CondriX @ 2010-06-29 18:10 from p4M6 - click to readHi, some answers to your earlier questions:

1. As far as I can tell you cannot adjust the backlight of the keypad or display.
2. Audio quality is pretty good, although the maximum volume is not quite loud enough for me. (fyi I'm using Sennheiser ie8 earphones)
3. I'll have to report back on battery life as I've only had the handset for a few hours.
4. There doesn't appear to be a smart dialling feature.

Initial general observations are that it is slightly slimmer than I was expecting and is a fairly good looking handset. Although it is mostly plastic, the build quality is satifactory to me, especially given its relatively low price.
The screen quality is also slightly better than I had expected - nice colours and pretty sharp.

Had a bit of a nightmare trying to set up my email accounts, kept getting communication type error, however now the same email accounts with the same settings are working with no problems or errors. Weird. Also can't seem to get my MobileMe email pushed to the handset, despite setting the email to auto update. I have to go in and manually check for new email.

Thats about it for now, I've only been using it for a few hours so sorry I can't be too thorough with my opinions yet! Hope this info helps.

> In reply to Jamie @ 2010-06-29 10:11 from nGbi - click to readThank you! Actually I am from Republic of Moldova, so probably the phones will arrive here in the middle of july or august. Anyway if it comes earlier to you please make a quick description about the questions I've had. I wanted to buy LG GW300 but it doesn't have Wi-Fi (if to buy a QWERTY then for sure with Wi-FI). Also intterested in music quality and if it is not very good probably I'll go for X2 or 5130. But if it has 3.5 mm audiojack then I think it must have a pretty decent quality. Good luck and enjoy your phone ;)

as per the nokia official site it is still tagged as 'COMING SOON'. even in nokia conversation blog they replied they even dont know the release date yet. but it should be released within July i think bcoz thy announced it's release date as Q2 2010 which will end in july. so all c3 lovers prayer for it.

> In reply to CondriX @ 2010-06-28 23:36 from p4M6 - click to readI'd like to know the answer to these questions too.

I ordered a C3 anyway from the Nokia UK online store. Unfortunately the tracking info doesn't show up, but I know that it has been shipped. Hopefully I will receive it in the next couple of days. When it arrives I'll do my best to answer the questions re headset audio quality etc. Until then, it would be good to hear the opinions of others who actually have the phone.

Hello everyone. I would like to ask something the people who already own this phone:
1. Can we asjust the backlight of the keypad and display?
2. How is the audio quality with a good headset?
3. What about battery? If listening to 1 hour of music and sending some SMS per day, how long it will take untill switches off?
4. Does it have a smart dialling feature?
Thank you very much ;)
