    Do not contact anyone who post on blogs or forums selling goods.

    Nearly 100% of them are scammers. Always buy from a reputable dealer.

    Need a critical info… Does the i900 only has support for 1000 Contacts in the Address book.. ??

    That would be a serious limitation.

  3. Ads says:

    I have read on another review that it has support for ‘unlimited’ contacts. Limited only by the memory size. If you can fill 32GB with contacts you have too many friends…
