read my blog to realise you dont want an a900 for mp3 (no external memory, and bad battery life).
My new 6265 takes mini SD, plays mp3 aac and aac+, really nice phone. First day today, and lovin it so far. Havent really put it through its paces as an MP3 player though.

While typing i notice that PC sync is working, and connected to my phone.... I just pulled up in my car a few mins ago, and the phone is in the centre console, car in driveway at back of house, PC in room at front of house, I got the big measuring tape out... 18 meters!! Autoconnected, I am browsing the phone right now updating it with some more mp3's and removing photos i took earlier...

Very good bluetooth!

If you’re after an MP3 Telecom mobile and that being your primary driving reason to purchase such a phone, to be honest the best MP3 UI imho is that of the Sanyo's. Try either a Sanyo 5600 or Sanyo 9000 with the later offering a number of advantages.

The Nokia 6265 is also good, but too slow in regard to working your way through the music player compared to the Sanyo, although you can play music via the gallery but the phones back light stays on!! Yell 

In saying that I wouldn’t trade my Nokia 6265 for another Sanyo (also have 5600), and I am looking forward to using my 6265 as my primary phone, but for other reasons than music.
