Just a little user opinion at my end. I bought a Black C905 just 2 days back and tried it out at the store where I got the phone. Everything seemed to work fine, I was able to detect the Wifi signals and all and all seemed well. 3 hours later, the wifi stopped working. I was unable to detect any signals, and took it to a different SE store where they showed me an exactly similar phone that was able to detect 8 wifi signals when my phone was not able to detect a single signal. I performed all the resets on the phone, including a master reset, and the wifi still wasn't working. With my day completely ruined, I was quite upset about the phone and was prepared to take it to the service center the next day.
I shut the phone down and switched back to my old phone but decided to give it a second try the next morning and the wifi worked. It is now the 4th day and it seems like it is working fine but that's after the master reset that has deleted all the pre-installed pictures, themes and games on my phone that I wasn't able to recover.
Also. While the wifi works fine, it feels really slow. Much slower compared to the other symbian phones I've had, like the Nokia e66 and Samsung i550w. So just beware there. The webpage doesn't render as well in the C905, so it is definitely not the kind of phone you will want to be using to surf the internet on. Mainly pictures only. So I will probably be keeping to my e66 for documents and internet.
my C905 cracked out on me. I had it for a 2 months already and it just keep on dying on me. It feezes up and dies. I'm totally going to send it back to the manufacture :/ i has to get fixed
Disappointed in SE phones not being able view internet videos or flash in WIFI mode!
my name is AHMED RASHEED (RESTAY) from MALDIVES. I have my C905. It was indeed nice n great phone compare to other sony ericsson. Camera works great ! But wat i notice is its life is very short. i face the speaker fault problem. I have been to service centre TWICE. first they said may be speaker problem or cable problem. finally they said software problem. i dont know. its not working yet. Does anyone have similiar experience ?! Or it only me ? I send many mails to even sonyericsson site. respond rate is 0 %. Does anyone share similiar scenario ? please help me anyone..... my email is email@example.com Am now thinking of swapping over to G1 now ...
Please post the audio quality for this mobile.... as it is necessary to know before buying any phone.. waiting..
cici, 14 Jan 2009To the owners: is it possible to upload any program for navigation as: tom tom, garmin mobile ... moreDont think its possible as c905 is running on the SE A300 platform and is not a smartphone running the symbian OS. I have been trying to find this solution myself, and ended up with this answer. The c905 can also not pre-install the Wayfinder navigator maps, but only supports online maps. To bad for for an otherwise excellent phone...
I have my C905 on Nov 13. It was indeed a good phone compare to my K800i. Camera works great ! But the joy of having it is very short live. I have been to service centre TWICE. Once on 1st to 3rd Dec. Another on 19 Dec 2008 till now. Does anyone have similiar experience ?! Or it only me ? I trying call them and sending them email. There was no response from SE Singapore. SO DISAPPOINTMENT with their service. My phone stay in service centre longer than in my hands. Does anyone share similiar scenario ? Am now thinking of swapping over to Iphone now ...
just had a customer bring back her c905 for the third time in less than 2 months..... need i say more. why can no one spell on this forum?
To the owners: is it possible to upload any program for navigation as: tom tom, garmin mobile instead of using preinstaled ones?
i love the phone it looks nice and did work good i have had it for 4 weeks now and the speaker has broke when some one ring i awnser it and i have got to put it on loud speaker and also the wi-fi dose not work any more has any one els had theys problems ??
typical sony ericsson rubbish.sold quite a few and all come back faulty with speaker faults or usual software issues. n958gb kicks the pants out of this drivel. keys feel aweful as well. nothing good to say. if you buy this phone you are dumber than george bush.
I have this phone and its very good. Battery life not as good as previous sony handsets but with GPS and an 8MP camera I guess its to be expected.
The camera is fantastic. Love the facial recognition feature. Videa Quality is actually quite good. Not as good as viewty but certainly better than the K850i.
Overall a very good handset. 8/10
