hi friends...!!

i had purchased a sony walkman some time back ....but returned it soon after because, where as it's sound quality was great ,it's battery compartment just wouldn't lock properly.

now i purchased a sony cmd j5 after thorough search and anaylsis of various other mobiles, but am already thinking of returning it. no, the moblie it self is a very beautiful piece....i had wanted it the moment i t felt it in my hands, but it's ringer is practically useless. u jus won't hear it. looks like sony is good in making technical gizmos but falters at the smallest practical things that nobody would even give much thought and presme that it must be good.

sony's ringer is so hopeless that it jus wouldn't make sense to go in for this mobile even though it is great on other features.

i was planning to buy a sony music system.....but now i am not so sure......

People who are intrested in this fone trust me its good and is well worth the money ofcourse its not the best but its a very very good fone most of its fetures are good but of course it would record the ringtones ditorted as its got a tiny microphone what do u expect for a slimline design the only way it can be improved is it being as big as a brick so a massive microphone can be put in there which would playback better if youre not a person who Is worries more about the ringtones you hav than the phone this is a very good performer i alos think its as goo as a Nokia infact some features are actually better like the jog dail its a very good function as you can access menus and the internet much quicker than pressing a button so many times in a nokia until u reach the menu and the t9 txtin is another stunning feature for all da txters overall ithink this is a exellent fone and some ways its better than a nokia. The only reason nokias famous is cos its got a composaer,no antena,logos,and its just cos there famous well i think these are gettin boring now,nokia should now bring new features when they make new fones everytime you see a Nokia its the same old display dont u think that the features on a nokia should be improve. to be honest i think the j5 is a exellent phone and has a range of good fetures and because its a sony you cant go wrong.

I've had a Nokia 8210, 6210, 3310 and Sony's CMD-Z5. When I lost my Z5 I bought a J5 as a replacement. It is in many ways better than the Z5. I use to think the Z5 wast the best but I think the J5 beats them all.

It is light, compact & reasonable performance. Phonebook capacity is very good.

Just changed from a 7110 due to loads of lockups & crashes. Sony is good but has a few faults:
1. Ringtones are too quiet, I have missed a couple of calls in noisy environments.
2. Screen backlight is quite dim, and contrast not wonderfull - especially after the excellent 7110 display.
3. Jog dial is awkward to use one-handed if you are right-handed (should have been central or RHS - lefties will love it!)
4. Poor SMS capacity and no option for SMS directories.
5. Poor quality when recording your own tones - lets face it thats what most people are buying this phone for. You really need the data cable and entertainment software CD to make the most of this feature!

Phone was 119 from Carphone warehouse on BT Cellnet Pay-&-Go. As Cellnet locked phones are not available yet this was supplied totally unlocked - BONUS!!
I have the option to return within 14 days, so I will see just how annoying the lack of volume on the ringer becomes - shame because otherwise its a great phone. very light, nice looker and call quality is brilliant.
