I've been using SE phones for last 8 years at least. They make good phones, last I had was the K800 which was great. This C905 was a total disaster. the paint on joypad came off after 2 month i think. The software is real slow and hang very often. Unable to turn back on after switching off, have to remove batt to reset again. My ear speaker was replaced twice, my camera over popped out on it's own. This phone is poorly designed and costs too much. I wouldnt even pay half the price I paid for this crap. Think I'll get a C902 instead.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009it worked real great at first. i was really happy with it, but it started to show all its problems. Yep it shows me some (fixable) problem.
SE Fan, 26 Jul 2009See guys i was about to buy this cellphone but going through a lot of opnions i saw alm ost ev... moreStay away from this phone. It will give you nothing but problems. I am selling mine as soon as I get it back from the repair centre.
I have had this phone for 4 months now. At first I really liked this phone but now I can clearly say its the worst phone I have ever had. I have 2 major problems:
1) They never fixed the keypad problem. I take good care of all my phones but my C905's number 2, 4, and # are not functioning. I have to press them really hard for the keypad to receive any feedback from the phone. People here said that the keypad problem is fixed, but its NOT. Phone has gone out for a repair currently due to this problem.
2) The edges of the slider have a slight gap where my hair get stuck all the time. It is annoying how many hair have been plucked out over my ear due to this flaw in the design.
I wish SE made great phones like the p-series or the K750. I would personally advise people to stay put from this phone due to the keypad problem. Its not worth it if you cant even text anyone.
I had a Sony Ericson K800i which was best phone ever. Upgraded to C905 in November and since then have had four handsets!! Worst phone I have ever had and wouldn't have another one. Two replaced for sticking keys, one replaced for software issues and final one replaced as keeps saying 'no network coverage'. Stay well away!
Great phone, but my problem is the battery. 360 hours standby means 15 days. Mine last for only 3 days, with an average of 20min talk time.
Any comments on this?

i have this phone since April this year, and ive had software problems twice already. Ive had to send in in for repairs twice already. My sister has the same phone and she also had software problems!!!!
and my GPS does not work!!!!
This phone is the best after sliced Bread.. Its purely worth every penny
Overall the phone is great - awesome camera and quality of pictures. However, there are a few boo-boos - no video call camera for the 3G and I've recently had problems with the earphones and sound and the slide cable under the screen has now broken. Not impressed for what I paid for the phone.
Earpiece phone problem. Stop working suddenly. Seems to be a comment manufacturing problem from Sonyericsson. BECAREFUL!!!!!

If you listen to a lot of loud music on your phone this is not the phone for you. Unless you invest in some expensive earbuds. The quality is good but not loud enough(3)
If you want to navigate a lot the built in wayfinder is pretty basic so you could upgrade to att navigator(4).
The phone has been excellent but we wanted a good camera and good call quality. The free nav application is a plus because it searches the internet so you can find almost aanything. We love being able to access the pictures/music on our hdtv.
