this is hands down the best slider phone i have ever had, also the camera is incredible how you can take 7 pics at once.
overall i love this phone and you should buy one if you have not all ready, way better than n series phones by nokia
You should all be PATIENT and Wait for the Next firmware upgrade, and if you have a bad hardware unit then return it and get a Replacement!

Do Not Buy This Phone.
The Problems/Faults Are Incredible
The Earpiece WILL Conk Out After A Week
Dropping The Phone Will Seriously Damage The Casing
The Keypad Will Eventually Rip Even If You Barely Use It
Look It Up.
Im Returning Mine NOW

its not really asking for perfection, people spend alot of money on phones and should really get what they pay for. simple.
just read the comment below mine... one of many.
My C905 is not functioning (earphone no sound) less than 2 months after purchased. It has been almost 3 weeks since I submit it to the service station and the phone has not yet been repaired. I don’t know how much longer it will take to get the sparepart. I am truly disappointed.
It’s not about the phone, but the data stored in the phone. I am so frustrated not able to look at contacts to find people. Yes, it is customer’s responsibility to have backups, but when a customer buy a phone that means the customer already trusts the phone to be functional. I can tolerate 1-week repair time, but 3 weeks is just not acceptable. Sony Ericsson itself does not help much to manage customer satisfaction. All they can do is being sympathetic and ask to wait for the sparepart, they have no intention to replace with a new phone or to assign a backup phone for customer to use while waiting for repair. I do not suggest anyone to buy C905. A broken handphone combined with long repair time has no value.
Date of Purchase: 13 Nov 2008
Date of Service: 7 Jan 2009
Repair Order Number: MDF00008354
Service station at Plaza Medan Fair Lt 4, Medan, Indonesia

As the flagship phone of the company, consumers expect it to be the be all and end all; absolutely faultless in other words.
The major flaw in this reasoning is nothing can be perfect. I agree that there are a large amount of complaints about this phone, but the reason behind it is simple

The thing is that problems are highlighted much more than the praises. I actually own a C905 and mine is the one that kelly referred to as the returned.
Look at the Nokia's of past, the N95 had major problems when it was first released, the e65 has had major problems as well. i won't be suprised if the same goes for the N97. But most of these phones still rate fairly high. Foibles are always easier to spot than good traits

People are quick to jump to conclusions, especially when it comes to attributing the blame to the closest uniform.
