Hey all! I bought this phone a coupla days back after failing to find the wave, which was my initial choice. I was able to get this for 13k in bangalore. Performance-wise, I should say I am quite satisfied with it. I had to update the firmware myself on my comp, but once i did that there was noticiable improvement in the responsiveness. The messaging on C6 is very comfortable owing to the hardware keyboard. However, I'd have liked it if there was sms conv threading. On the multimedia side, the phone is satisfactory; it has FM radio with RDS and AF, the music player does its job pretty well. Change the bundled headset if you want. However, I was disappointed as it does not play DivX out of the box. The DivX player from the DivX homepage plays DivX vids with pauses. The cam does its job well for a phone camera, but don't expect it to replace your standalone camera it you're a photo-freak.
Internet browsing is OK. GPS works very well, too. I was able to get a lock within seconds within the city once i activated my GPRS too.
Overall, I'd say it's quite a cool phone with handy features and good hardware.
I'd like to know from other users about good applications that I can install on my phone, and also from where i can get them. I'd also appreciate if someone could suggest a good free anti-virus for my phone.

Wish I hadn't bought this phone at all. Just wasted my money.

i brought this phone on 29 november , software was pre updated but yesterday i update the new os update(20.0.041) and cell hanging alots, the operting also very slow compair to last os. and battery backup is also very bad , guys plz dont go for this mobile.........is it really 5 megapixel camera??photo quality is bad but video quality is fine
First time here, but taking the time to warn people about this phone.
I just bought this phone yesterday and it hung within 10 minutes of usage.
I updated the firmware and the hanging stopped... for a few hours.
It now hangs every 20-30 minutes and I have to remove the battery to fix it.
The keypad is flimsy, the individual keys have started rattling and the D-Pad gets dirty quickly.
With medium usage, the slider has become loose and now the phone is very rickety.
Considering that I paid 13.8K for it, I feel cheated and would like everyone to beware of this.
for me its works relatively fine for a mid range smart phone.
camera is good (i say good bcoz sometime the picture colour looks pale especially when shoot at night). before the firmware update this phone hangs a lot but it REDUCED after firmware updated. apps like compass are not supported in this phone even it works fine on n97mini. not support usb charging and have to connect to charger even hv connected to usb
nokia say they will release the final firmware to eliminate hanging problem completely on week 49 2010 (between 6-13 dec 2010).
i'm waiting for it :D
i just got mine, am so loving this phone but needs a pouch cos i dont want doz scratch n cant afford it falling witout being protected

Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010dabba phone.. hangs all the time. dont buyI am planing to buy this phone. Can any body suggest about the speed of this phone, because any feature you use, it will take internal memory & will keep on affecting the next feature.
I bought it yesterday itself but I can tell that the features are quite good, U can buy it.
Specially the white coloured set, it looks superb.
About battery life, is not so good but this is the problem with all smart phones because they have many features using the battery extensively.
About hanging, if u use it like LAPTOP then any mobile will crash, be gentle then enjoy the features.
About music good......cant expect more & bonus a 3.5 mm jack, u can choose any earphone u want.
In this price all these features with a very good camera is a bonus.........y r u planning..?????
