I use it for 2 years. It is easy to use, keyboard is the one thing that proves too be great on C6-00.
But it has major downsides: 1. Not enough RAM, it slowes down as soon you install a few simple applications. Very often it doesn't open pictures because of it, and even in you open a photo, it does not sharpen it, and only thing that helps is a full restart turn C6 off-on, wait and wait a little longer, because it takes a lot of time...
2. Display, you have to push hard to use touchscreen, soon you realize that it is good if you use navi buttons on keyboard, that solves some speed issues.
3. Symbian, it is an outdated sistem, not many good applicaion out there, as if that wouldn't be enough, even the CPU "434 MHz ARM 11" proves to be to slow for many apllications like "talking cat", "talking hamster" that require live interaction.
4. ACCELOMETER does not work as good as competition (Samsung,HTC,SonyEricsson), even orientation often needs some convinsing, like opening keyboard...
4. NO DIVX MOVIES, movies have to be copied through PC Suite program, because they need to be converted, it is an automated process when you have your C6-00
connected via USB in PC Suite mode, just drag and drop files in My Computer.
-it supports 16GB microSD
-a pretty loud speaker for playing mp3s
-Superb for writing messages, great for taking photos
-Nokia OVI maps are working great, they are totally free, a free download with usb connection or wlan of a required map and it works just fine without the need of a internet connection afterwards!
-Installed GARMIN XT works great, needs some time to find sattelites but works.
- To use led flash as "battery light" just install FLASHLITE EXTREME, otherwise you don't have it.
- I recommend Opera Mini for big buttons and easy use of internet browsing.
That is it.
Please help . Why I can't connect to a PC ? Something's went wrong -.-

Cedric, 10 Mar 2012Its a very good handset. For those who having unnecessary problems with it probably don't know... morei think either u r eternally stupid or a goddam liar.it has resistive touchscreen & navigation is not free u need a internet connection for that.
i am using this phone....actually is a very bad phone. It is a kind of very slow and lags. once i kept 1 app running and then opened music library...it hanged..i tried many times but could not open then i remembered the app and i tried after closing it and then opened and after a long time it did open.Thank God!!.....it might seem that in the house the speaker is very loud but when you go out even the highest volume is nothing........after all i will give this phone 2 out of 10
Its a very good handset. For those who having unnecessary problems with it probably don't know how to use the smart phones. Its has AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with corning gorrila glass. So, obviously touch respone is great. Plus it has all inbuild features like GPS navigation, Sensors- Accelerometer and proximity, Windown live Messanger, yahoo + Google talk, 5 m.p camera and QVGA secondery cam,WiFi, Querty keypad and it goes on and on. What i found the only dislike in this phone is that its a very thick gadget and plus its a bit on heavier side(150gm). So, All in all its a Good smart phone from Nokia.
very very very very gud fone.... gud qwerty keyboard with mouse.. gud camera gud batry life.. awsome
