At last I have been able to get rid of mine!
The internal microphone went, repair shop, then the screen went hay-wire!
Im usually a sony supporter, but feel they have made a huge error with this phone.
Its back to Nokia for me.
it's Sony Ericsson's flagship handset initially released to compete with the gaint Nokia. It makes good phone calls, the brilliant 8.1MP camera can capture high quality images, the photographing settings are a little complicated for me though, the built-in music player is not bad, BTW, i love the TrackID music recognition while listening to the FM radio, it really works. However, the call record capability is a drawback for SE, it has only 30 received, dialed and missed calls, it's far beyond enough for ppl like me, it doesn't match the flagship tag attached to the C905. All in all, i love it, hope the record capability will be upgraded in the next lineups.
out of 10
I had the C905 since March and despite having it 4 months it has now gone to the mobile phone maker in the sky. O2 online now don't stock it because of the problems with it. As with previous Sony Ericsson phones or maybe it's just bad luck. The C905 started off well, but I used to use the alarm to get myself up in the morning and used to switch it off before I went to sleep. So what I hear you say, but pretty much from day one when the alarm went off, obviously the phone started up, but then it crashed and wouldn't start up again unless I took the back off, removed the battery and reinserted etc. So in the end I didn't turn it off. Finally it gave up the ghost when the ear speaker packed up, a regular problem I've been informed, substandard wiring or something like that. If you don't get any problems you've been lucky, but unlike me i've had to return successive phones K800 and K850...I've had enough of Sony Ericsson...useless.
The main negative point is it has only 30 call records comparing to this other brands has 90 call records. The body is very light.
finally i got rid of this silly phone. just bought an iphone 3gs. so much more satisfied now guyz. eally sold it but again suffered a big loss as well. you see sony erriccsson has a very bad reasle value in india. bought one of the first pieces at 31000, had to sell it at 12000.

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?
