Dunno if its already been posted but here is a tutorial of how to access files on your C905 using your wifi connection.

Step 1.
Menu>Settings>Conectivity>Network sharing.
Configure settings like this: (Just choose a random username+pass (my one is A for both))
UPDATE:
On the new firmware, it seems this menu has been changed to just have an on/off option. Make sure its on!

(note: If you changed the default workgroup when you ran the set up home or office network wizard then use that)

Step 2.
Menu>Settings>Conectivity>Wifi
Scroll down to your wifi network and press options
Then scroll to edit settings like so:

Click on edit settings and scroll to Network Sharing
Make sure it is on


Step 3.
In windows explorer type \\C905 in the address bar (Or enter the phone name that you set in the conectivity menu
(You may have to enter username+password, if so then enter the ones you used in step 1)

Enjoy! No wires, and no bluetooth so it works on desktops!

You know, if you set up your router to allow port 80 connections, you could type into a webbrowser anywhere in the world http://[your ip]/C905. I think, I'm not to sure since the telecom firmware on my router stops me from port forwarding.

Sometimes you need to restart your pc/phone/router the first time.
