I have this phone and ordered it based on the SIP settings/VoIP support..... This phone does not support VoIP or any other SIP application. the setting exist but do not do anything. once you have entered your personal SIP/VoIP settings there is no way to link it to the GPRS network or Wireless network and there is no built in functionality to allow you to make a voice call using your SIP settings. Calling Sony Support for help (as there are no instructions what so ever in the manual for the supposed SIP/VoIP support) Sony just say that you need a 3rd party app to use the sip settings. when i asked what app the phone supports or what app supports the phone, they could not tell me anything. when i pushed, they suggested skype. but correct me if i am wrong, if you install the skype app you then use your skype account, you cannot use any other VoIP settings.... my VoIP is with Gradwell and i could use my gradwell sip settings fine on my Nokia E51, I like the stability of Sony so when I saw SIP settings on the C905 I thought this would be the phone for me as I stupidly thought that the SIP settings would actually do something. Basically the conclusion is that Sony have added the SIP settings to make the phone look as though it supports SIP/VoIP but it actually doesn't. you need a third party app and account setting to go with the app provider I.E. skype. The settings are just for show and do nothing until sony can prove me wrong and when I challenged the sony support on this they could not tell me how to make it work even with a third party app. This isn't the first time Sony have made a phone that doesn't do what it says it can do. The K770i video function has the ability to switch from low(MMS) quality to high quality. well it says it has switched to high quality when you select the option, but it does not change the quality at all it stays at MMS (or worse) when i spoke to sony about this they just said that it creates a smaller file for MMS.... but the option clearly says that it is switching to high quality mode so it should be high quality not MMS quality..... sony support just brushed me off.... the K770i also states in it's spec and help file that it has red eye reduction but it does not..... and while it also says that you can turn the flash off.... you cannot turn the flash off it is always in auto mode. Sony phones are great for stability my K770i has not crashed on me once in the year that i have had it.... but they keep selling their phones with functions that don't do anything or do not work or do not exist.... then their support just brush off these design flaws...... nuff said......
I love the features, look of this phone. My c905 is about 2 weeks old. Just yesterday though my down/bottom [button] started going wonky on me. I can't scroll down more than once (e.g. searching contacts/text messages/pictures) without returning to the Main screen. I updated my software using the cd and internet connection but even with the latest version, the problem persists. Contacted sony ericsson via their website but they have yet to respond to my email, except for the automated response. :(
The Smart Contrast pictures are lovely. I dont see any difference with my digital camera. well done SE the phone is great.
yeah, i'm having the same problem. I just updated mine and I don't see any threaded messaging... was it not included? please let me know!
I also tried to download the new version of software for the C905, from the SE website....and i still dont have the SMS conversation/ thread texting??? Help....i really want that feature...lol!!
i updated the firmware of my c905 and there is no thread sms/mms. How about yours?
I bought the C905 when it first came out. Its a great phone just had a defect to it cause it was the first shipment. So i got my refund and i am getting the X1. But overall i loved the phone i just dont take as many pictures so there was no need for an 8 MP camera. Its screen was outstanding!! Great mobility. Just a bit thick but no problem. Overall RECOMMENED
i really never had any problems similar to all these posts.
my C905 is still as good as the day that i bought it. its very reliable and more sturdy than my n95. good thing i bought this phone. and its camera is superior!
no regrets. C905 rocks!!!!!!
i bought my C905 a half and a month ago...it was perfect and there was no hang ups or sometihng...but yesterday i was having a hard time to press the clear button...so i had a difficulty to erase my messages...at the same time i need a lot of force to erase it...and it will do damage on my C905...so i went to a cellphone repair shop and i need to pay $50 or so just to change the keypad rubber on my cellphone and i need to wait until the keypad rubber will arrive...so i dont know when it will arrive coz they have to order it in Manila...i think now i believe that this phone is a rubbish...it cost an arm and a leg and the quality is so terrible...i dont recommend it...
hello c905 owners, did you have your firmware update already(smile shutter and SMS threading)? when will it be available here in Asia? i'll appreciate your reply.. thanks in advance!
hey dazz y dont you learn how to spell if your gonna leave a comment. at least make sure people can read what your talkin about!!! i've had the phone now for 2 weeks and the screen keeps goin all green and pixelated when i slide it down, other than that not a problem in the world. best phone i've ever had... :)
i have c905 since november 2008 it been in to be fix 4 times it keep freezing up and im getting sick of it. not one week i had the phone to used it i like se. now im thinking now se turning me off. bad battery never last a 3 days and i dont used the c905 much. i dont like nokia and lg. i wish i never buy c905 k800i was better.even c902 is better. i dont now if im think not going to buy sony ericsson again shame on you sony
I,ve had the c905 for 3 days now and it,s fine. Even had a naked lass on it who must have taken a pic of herself and sent the phone back. When i connect to my sky wifi it connects with no problems, after that when i try to connect via the internet it says a problem occurred. Anybody got any ideas whats wrong please. Cheers Fred
the best phone on the market until now.
so you nokia fanboys go and buy a battery and leave us alone
Allan, 03 Mar 2009Is that what you do with qvga video. Ever heard nokia has tv out?!?!?So does C905, BTW iv sold my K850 and now im getting a Nokia but i'l be getting the Idou when its released!
I have tis phone in this year. I just bought in Feb den i trade it after 1 month.
For this Phone, it is really great and nice function but the keypad hv the problems.. i hv just use for 1 day, then i need to bring it back to service... After 5 days, same problem was occur... I hv suffered about it..
Btw, the loudness of this phone and camera shot are great. I do not other users opinion, but i feel it nice.
However, i think SE do not do their job tis time. A lot of people hv the same problems. Many of them keep bring it bak to the service center..
Conclusion, tis phone is not so good because of the keypad... tat all
Okay Nokia fanboys. "Why do we take 8MP picture and have it displayed on 256k screen? We need 16M screen". I loled at this. Well we SONY fanboys take 8MP pictures (or more) and have them displayed on 40"+ Bravia screens (or Xbrite HiColor/FullHD screens), not some lousy Nokia screens.
