Aidan C, 16 Oct 2009This is the worst Sony Ericsson phone I have ever had. (I have had quite a few over the past 6... moreWell lets see..........
-'The battery life is very poor.....' Have you tried to see what is running on your phone that does not need to be running? For example; Wi-Fi, a-GPS, BlueTooth......?? Try letting it go totaly dead, then charge it.
-'The microphone is bad - people can't hear you very well......' How far are you holding the phone from your mouth when you are talking? Have you checked your profiles on the phone??
-'The GPS doesn't work on mine.....' From the glossery at the bottom of the page. '
Assisted GPS (A-GPS) is used to speed up start-up times of GPS-based positioning systems. GPS may have problems getting a lock when the signal is weak and in such a case A-GPS would assist in getting a lock.
This, however, is achieved by the use of an Assistance Server, so a data connection is required and charges may apply for the data transfer.' How long do you wait for it to get a lock? I have heard of other people on other phones having to wait more than 10 mins. to get a lock.
-'There are security certificate issues which has made it impossible for me to use the Gmail client.....' Sounds as if Vodafone has done something to it when they installed their programs. You need to call them to fix it...then again you could try to update your phone also.
-'The camera shutter is manual so you can easily leave it open unintentionally.....' Be glad that you have a cover for your phone, most dont, and get scratched....and it sounds as if you need to try and remember to put it back in place. Remember this is not a plain camera.
-'The keyboard is flaky and there have been some changes to the T9 capabilities which are frustrating if you are upgrading from another Sony Ericsson phone.....' You should have seen me when I got got my first phone with T9, I hated it, now I cant do with out it. I know sometimes change is hard....but sometimes it is for the better.
But all in all, it sounds like most of your problems is your personal opinion and not the phone. There is phones I will not touch after trying them, but that is just me, and not the phone.
Former C905 owner, 17 Oct 2009Sorry guy, but the complaints about this phone are legit. I read about this phone for months ... moreROTFLMAO!!
You are indeed funny.
I am not saying that you will never get a bad phone, but as many people that is on here complaining is a crock!! I have even been on other Sony threads and found out that most are indeed there just to stir up crap. I have had 5 different Sony phones, as well as my wife having the same ones, and in all that time have only had one bad phone. All the while people were complaining on these threads how bad they were.
LOL!!!What a joke!
Now that being said, do you think that Sony would even still be making phones if they were that bad? No company would. But yet Sony is still make phones, and what are they the WORLD..... 3rd or 4th manufacturer? How do you realy think they got there?
Direwolf_65, 15 Oct 2009Do you really have this phone? If you do, where did you buy it from? a street dealer?
Like I ... moreSorry guy, but the complaints about this phone are legit. I read about this phone for months before I decided to buy. Screen malfunctions, earpiece issues, button difficulties, and every other negative you read about on this opinion board. Some people seem to get a handset with any number of these issues, some people get a phone that doesn't have any problems. I took a gamble and bought it hoping I would get one with no issues.
Too bad for me.
Within 1 week, no drops, no bangs, no scratches, my screen went out. I got the handset with very stiff buttons that didn't always recognize presses.
I sent it back.
Just because you don't have any problems with your handset doesn't mean everybody else is abusing theirs. That comment is getting really old and annoying. You don't think that people know how to take care of a phone? You think people just want to bash SE? Most C905 buyers are former SE owners who just wanted a great SE phone. I owned three before the C905. I'm back using my K750, but will buy another SE soon.
1 faulty SE model doesn't make the company untrustworthy and I understand that. Don't take legitimate criticism of the C905 as an insult just because you didn't have the same experience.
Hello. I want to buy a Sony Ericsson mobile but I do not know of any model I can go. Is there any advice.
This is the worst Sony Ericsson phone I have ever had. (I have had quite a few over the past 6 years).
I got a c905 around 3 months ago on the Vodafone network and I am looking forward to changing it. Here are my complaints:
The battery life is very poor.
The microphone is bad - people can't hear you very well.
The GPS doesn't work on mine.
There are security certificate issues which has made it impossible for me to use the Gmail client.
The camera shutter is manual so you can easily leave it open unintentionally.
The keyboard is flaky and there have been some changes to the T9 capabilities which are frustrating if you are upgrading from another Sony Ericsson phone.
I would definitely not recommend this phone to anyone.
I use this phone from 5008 november till now also no problem why many ppl said got problem and i don`t understand about your behavior don`t like Sony Ericsson go for Nokia la but u dont regreat.
Sry i know my english abit ****.
Thanks Alot. :)
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2009worst phone sick of selling them and seeing them come back 2 - 3 months later there are 5 thin... more....besides, even if you are a sells person, why is it AT&T cant keep these phones on the shelves? Also why is it that AT&T customers rate this phone with 4 1/2 stars? Only 3 out of 27 people did not like the phone. The Sony and the Moto QA1 have been out of stock twice this month, sold out!!! So, I dont know who you are trying to con, but get over it!!

Like I said before,'Besides what are you doing to your phones??
Maybe you need a Samsung Rugby or Motorola Tundra, they are suppost to be made to take some abuse.'
Anyone that has that much problems with a phone, and I don't care what brand it is, is doing something wrong!!!
Even T-Moble had a problem with there SideKick phones, and stopped selling them till the problem is fixed.
.....or are you just someone that likes to complain about everything? You know the type, you will find something to complain about even if there is nothing wrong.
worst phone sick of selling them and seeing them come back 2 - 3 months later there are 5 things that will go wrong with a c905. the incoming audio speaker, the outgoing audio mic, the cancel button, the key pad and the display. crap phone.
this is a superb phone but i think its abit over priced,there are better phones in this price range
I bought a C905 for a month now & I didn't face any problems till now, I think it is a very good phone.
BUT as I am ex-owner of K800, I feel some times that the 8.1 MP didn't give me what I expected, although the video is really better than the K800, but the still shots (are good) but not as I expected.
anyone please advise or comment.
Thanks a lot
I bought it about 3 months ago and im about to send it for repair for the 3rd time now, but for the previous 2 problems that I had I suspect it all started with My Phone Explorer, i jus think these two are not wel compatible...
I am very satisfied with my C905. I have bought it 3 months ago. I had a C702 before but C905 is much much better: it doesn't shut down, battery life is better, voice doesn't go away during calls, many differences. Cheers
C905 TV-OUT feature, only for it's pictures no else. Even it's videos cannaot see on TV. I'm very frustated about that compared to the sane feature of my old NOKIA N95. Beyond my aspectation
c905 tv-out features, only for its pictures but not for its videos. i'm very frustated about this compared to the same feature of my nokia n95.
Rd, 12 Oct 2009Pl. dont go for SE. I am now repenting after my C905 went blank within 2 months use. Go for Nokia.Had Nokia before....No Thanks!!
Besides what are you doing to your phones??
Maybe you need a Samsung Rugby or Motorola Tundra, they are suppost to be made to take some abuse.
