Anyone using 3G in US or Canada? Which provider are you with and how fast and reliable is the 3G Internet?
I bought the G705 and am loving it.
I do have a problem getting it to stream but.
Can access the net fine, stream youtube, but playback of music/streaming fails.
Does anybody have an idea why?
What sort of hidden settings are there?
GPS does not require EDGE or 3G. It works on its own. Google map (and all online features) works on Wifi.
I bought it in HK and had problem with youtube as well. Turns out that I have to setup the streaming setting to use Wifi and youtube is working now.
Downloaded Opera mini and the browsing is even faster. Although it is not as integrated as the built-in netfront browser.
Im using the home router, too (got a couple of laptops) and the download speed via WiFi on the G705 is awesome! Everything works perfect but i got 3 complains:
1-The WiFi rapidly disconnects and it is really annoying!
2-The camera is kinda... useless duo to the lack of AF (i think)
3-When closed - the top part of the phone does shifts a bit.
Overall - its nice! Its pretty cheat, too + its a reat pleasure to surf the net on it!!!!
i just brought this phone, it's great!!!!
i love it's download speed thru' wifi ( home router)
=D highly recommended....
the only laggy thing, i felt is the contacts. i find it kinda sluggish in opening contacts
so the camera do not have autofocus?
what other drawbacks are there?
to use the GPS function in this phone, do we need edge or 3G from the service provider?? pls reply..

The battery life depends on the user. If you are a techie in music, video and surfing, then you may have to charge everyday.
If you just use your phone for calling, it can last you for about 3 days before you need charging again.
The wi-fi connection is pretty easy and fast.
If you are a music lover, you may consider buying W705 if not, then this phone is pretty good.
How is the battery life for this phone? Is it better than W760? Does this have megabass feature? How is the wifi connection speed? Is this phone worth buying or what about the W705? Finally, what is the approx. price for this phone in CAD? Thanks.
When is the US version of G705 coming out? Any dates? I need to get the US version because i need to get 3G working here in the US and Canada
