This Phone Rocks
It's really a great phone
After using Nokia N86 and Samsung INNOV8
I advice the C905. It's really better than All.
ive had the c905 for about 10months now...and all the rubbish u heard from other people are pure nonsense...all those problems happen because u people dont know how to take care of ur phone....it takes picture perfect photos, awesome sound quality , stylish , and everything...this is a great phone...handle ur phone with care and u will know how good of a phone it is....dont know how to use it? go and see the manual book....and also my 2 bro's were so impressed on how the phone worked they themself bought their on c905..
to the comment about cancelling your o2 contract ..im telling you now what ever you do dont switch to 3 its the worst nightmare of a network ever well maybe better in the uk but its really no good at all in Ireland

this is from a post from the AT&T boards, and this is what one person said about the phone, "I bought this phone because I've wanted one since I heard of its inception (as the Shiho). I've very glad that at&t picked it up. Alittle Wanton ;) but the gps and the wi-fi are worth it, not to mention the camera!"
The phone also gets 5 stars there.
i have my c905 since march, just this april, i woke up and the navigation button broke. then i searched the net, i found that i'm not the only one, some got their speakers broken, some also their keypad,etc... the camera is really nice but it would've been better if they made it for quality. i'm a sony lover but unless you're just wasting ur money i advice you to think 10x before buying. i had my w900i before it lasted for 4 years until someone snatched it from my pocket..but it's better than this when it comes to quality and it's cheaper but i think it's a limited edition phone so it's already not in the market. back to the c905, i sent it to the service center but it was worse, before the problem was just the down nav button won't work, when i open anything then press down, the apps or whatever closes, now the left nav button also broke when i press it before, it brings me to write message, now when i press it it says: "continue playback through speakers?". how frustrating, when i read about this phone in the internet it seemed like it's the best sony phone... but in real life it's the total opposite. so disappointing.
Direwolf_65, 25 Aug 2009Well, which one would you feel better getting? Which one would give you the least worrys?
I will go by ur advice which one should I go for
I was about to buy it then I realized here in the US AT&T has it and they REMOVED the WIFI from it. Now you HAVE TO BUY DATA plan no matter what. I find this unethical and disgusting business practice, something Verizon did/do. Then I left verizon but now there is nothing else here in the "land of technology" :))))))

Hello all, for those considering this phone, buyer beware!! I purchased 2 of these one in black, one in silver when they first came out, paid $1195.00 total for both. We were dissapointed with the phone but nonetheless kept them for the great camera. Bought blackberry bold when they came out and just used our c905's for the camera, how is this relevant you might ask, well we used the phones for a total of 2 months before buying the blackberries, i just recently bought to iphone 3GS's and sold both of the sonys, well both of them have to be sent in to repair because one of them the earpiece stopped working you can only hear who your talking to when you put it on speaker. The other stopped scrolling upward, and the option button is not working. I feel like an @ss because the people i sold them to are out of phones now until they come back for repair. This is a shame, the phone had so much potential, and they dropped the ball. I love sony products so im going to have to chalk it up to the "ericsson" for all of the un sony like problems. Never again will i buy se, and i was a 7 year loyal customer, who stood by them despite the downward spiral that has been developing throughout the past 3 years.

I'm a professional photographer and own a range of professional DSLR cameras. This is by far the best cam phone I've ever used, with features which even some digital cams don't have.
A must-buy if u lookin for a great cam. Good audio and great build quality as well.
Direwolf_65, 22 Aug 2009Reem, Like I said, if you go to other web sights you will see what I mean about the complaint... moreHi, i went to the the showroom today ,i asked them in detail about the phone ,they said most of the girls r going like crazy after pink version and its selling very fast,only few of them reported earpiece problem and they said if i want to replace it i have to give it for repair i cant exchange it,so again confused,he showed me w995 do u think its better than c905 pl suggest ,reply soon,thnks
I have had the 905 for 8 months now. I have hd enough of it. I have owned Sony's for over 6 years and this has got to be the worst phone I have ever had the missfortune of owning!!!
List of faults ( so far )
Earpiece blown 3 times.
Lost all info stored.
None of the buttons would work.
Would not turn on.
Battery is rubbish when using the gps, It did not even last enough time to navigate my 50 miles from a full charge.
Picture quality in low light is very very poor, and yes I have altered the settings, and it didn't make much difference.
I have now found the perfect use for the c905. It makes a great paperweight!!!!
I got fed up of it and went and got a Nokia n86, which ( fingers crossed ) seems to do everything that the c905 claims to, but 10 times better, and it's cheaper.
All negative comments are true true and true! the phone sucks and useless and a real waste of money!!!!! I hate everything about c905!!!!! SE customer service also sucks a lot especially at the Mall of Asia Philippines and memoxpress shop
yari, 21 Aug 2009this phone SUCKSSSSSSS!!!!battery is very poor,keypads are vey poor and SE cutomer service are... morei guess u are not fit to get dat phone dats y the phone giving u problem. Go and get a BASIC phone and i guess it will last more than 10 yrs. Trust me.. U dun deserve a good phone. U jus need a very "BASIC" phone which can guarantee it wont have an issue
....i was kinda disappointed with the "negative" comments about this phone.... but on my own point of view, the phone's durability will depend on the person using it... let's face it, even people are not perfect... so as with mechanical devices... these devices are made to stand time but of course, the user must learn how to handle it CAREFULLY.... i have one of this phone & i've been using it for more than 6months, but I NEVER encountered any problems with it.... i read a comment regarding the camera as to being blurry... sometimes u just have to LEARN how to change the camera's setting. or if u are really into photography, why not grab a camera designed for photography perse... i don't usually make comments like this... i just hope people are open-minded... taking into considerations not just their own perspective about the phone but others as well... anyway.... the posts i've read are from different people... different attitudes... different works... and a lot of indifferences... LEARN TO TAKE CARE< LOVE AND HANDLE YOUR PHONE AS WHAT YOU DO TO YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES....
This is off topic, but has anyone had major issues trying to cancel their '3' contract when the time has come to do so??
I have one month left, and today rang to cancel and go to O2, i was then subjected to intense aggresive sales pitch by the telesalesperson for 65 minutes insiting i stay with '3' or pass my sontract on to a friend!! OR just atay with them as O2 are rubbish!
I find this totally out of order and wish to know if anyones else has been through this experience? - i was livid by the end of the call, i'm thinking of reporting them to trading standards or offcom.
