Bought this fone right after it came out here in the Philippines. I got around 6 months of good use then the display stopped working. I bought it to a Sony Ericsson service center and they told me it would take 4 weeks to "have a look at"! They did say however it was the slider mechanism (ribbon) that needed to be replaced as it is the number one cause of slider phone malfunctions. I opted to have it serviced somewhere else as I needed my phone contacts ASAP. Soon thereafter the camera stopped working (had to get a replacement mechanism for the sliding lens cover) and the keypad acted up (stiff, no backlight) etc.
Most of the problems were due probably to the unofficial technician who worked on it but still 6 months and I get problems already? I took great care of this fone too. This experience has totally turned me off of Sony Ericsson and to think I was a fanboy too.
The camera is great though I have to say. When it's working
i was very confused due to many opinions here which were negative about the c905. . . but i use many sets of SE k508i,k700i,k750i,k800i and k850i.and was satisfied from all phones instead of k850i de to firmware problem. . .so due to previous good experience of SE phone i went for c905 and bought it on saturday 5 days ago. . . . i am very happy with it. . . i changed it with nokia n82 and also used n95 8gb and c905 slide is better and easy to use . . . .. . and battery life is also very cool and good compare with n82. .
i am user of both nokia (6600,7610,6630,n70,n73,n82,n95 8gb)and sony ericsson.i love both company sets but i would prefer c905 because its very good frm n86 8 mpix. . . go for it dear friends. . . .
it worth its price.
hi every body. . . . . .i am very upset because many persons here post without proper checking the mobile phone. . . . . and pass comments about the phone.first thouroughly check the phone then pass comments

how to solve earpiece problem without opening the unit and use jumper or something?
Ive used the c905 for 10months. Over the past 10months ive had lots of problems with it so it was in & out of repair. Recently a technician has deemed it unfit to be given back to me and now my networkis giving me a w995 as a replacement as the c905 is discontinued. Thing is i really liked that handset and i want another one due to its camera and xenon flash. My c905 was an early 08W50 model so my question is, are the more modern, later versions of the c905 flawless? because i would love to buy another one but without the hassle that ive already had.

to ryd3r. The SE phones normally reboot to enter in Mass storage mode. they reboot, enter in that Mass storage mode, after you finished using it, you unplug the data cable, and the phone exits the Mass st. Mode and reboots, so you can use the phone part.
Both of them features 8.1 mp camera but only C905 features xenon flash.Xenon flash is very imporatant to take pictures in low light condition.(such as clubs,reastaurant or in the road)
The only advantage of Ainio is the bigger screen.
For me sony ericsson c905 is better and cheaper.
I have a question for those who are using this phone for a while.I just bought my c905 and every time i connect it to my pc it reboots(mass storage mode).Has anyone had the same problem?
