Anonymous, 24 Jul 2009Also, this phone is pretty cheap in the US, $180 with contract and rebates.Cheaper yet on Amazon: $49 with a new contract, $124 for upgrade.
You can also "debrand" the firmware in the phone to re-enable WiFi and WayFinder, plus accept standard (signed/unsigned) J2ME apps.

The network limitations put on handsets as powerful as these is just disappointing. I ordered the international unlocked version (I'm on T-Mobile so I can't use the 3G) of the handset from an ebay seller who ships them directly from the factory in China with full warranty. Good price, $360 with shipping. Just search the handset on ebay and you should find it.
I'll be able to tell you guys if the unlocked handset fares better than the reports I've been getting from this board about carrier specific versions of the C905.

I went by the AT&T store and took a look at the phone. It has a nice solid feel to it, the slide is smooth and made one little creaking noise as I twisted it. The plastic is good quality, and the overall size of the phone was actually smaller than I thought it would be. Here's the problems though, the keypad felt like it was made out of a thin, hard plastic. It felt like it would crack if I pressed it too hard or used it too much. The screen had an orange color to it, so I asked a sales rep. if it was supposed to be that way, it turns out the phone had locked up. Too bad, I really like this phone, I was hoping the bugs would have been worked out already, since I was looking at the new US model, the C905a.
Damn suk tis phone.speaker problem n need to repair rm180,only riben.i feel disadpointed when i got it.nokia n70 better than that.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2009Does anybody buy into the idea that carrier specific versions of any phone are more buggy/faul... moreAT&T carries this phone in the US. Guess what they did? They locked out wifi AND locked out 3rd party apps. If you want to use GPS you are forced to pay extra to use AT&T's GPS service.
If you want this phone in the US, unlocked would be best.
i'm looking 4ward to have this c905, but all the -ve comments make me somehow losing hopes 4 this fon, but i still wanted to hv it coz i think it's the most suitable 4 me..

Anonymous, 24 Jul 2009Does anybody buy into the idea that carrier specific versions of any phone are more buggy/faul... moreyour best off getting an unbranded plus version one.
ps this phone rules!! i think the still images are better than the ones produced by the i8510, even if gsm arena think otherwise
Does anybody buy into the idea that carrier specific versions of any phone are more buggy/faulty than unlocked ones? I hear alot of people complain because they got their phone through a Euro carrier. As is usually the case here in the states, carrier specific models have a lot more trouble than unlocked phones. Any thoughts?
absolute garbage! keypad lags and freezes so texting is almost impossible! and the loudspeaker is useless as it makes you sound like a duck! - got the phone on an upgrade on O2 and have gone back to using my N95 which is a million times better! ....one to be avoided!
Far'rukh, 23 Jul 2009is ther 2 version of this cell phone ? C905 and C905a ????????????????????????????????????????... moreThe C905a is just the C905 with the US 3G bands. It already comes equipped with the software update, but the network locked version (through at&t) has a somewhat diminished email client. The C905a unlocked version will be released in the US in the next few months.
