i've read all the comments about the sound of this se cedar phone.. i also experience it and if im not mistaken it is not design as walkman/ loud music. it is more on internet access thru phone and basic navigations. if ever i just hope that se will work into it thru updating software on the phone so we can also enjoy the phone as walkman.. as well as the picture feature.
and yeah ''ahbi'' i geuss your right, you know more about this then me, but still if mine is normal then all those good features are worthless cause of bad speakers. thx anyway for your reply's guys, apreciate it :)
ok so is it the same with you guys about having it hard to hear it ring when someone calls you and lets say there is some normal background noise and its in your jacket or other examples where you should hear your phone clearely when on max volume? or is it this one that is broken from fabric, ok thx for that update thing, i should check that out, i havnt realy gotten an answer here, this max volume of 8 should be atleast 16...

Jos, 13 Jan 2011Hey send me the same photo... Maxmjd@yahoo.com my id..If u r asking abt that particular pic than sorry, can't send u bcoz I have already deleted that one.
Do u want me to use other words for u & smard ...?
I have some exclusive words for people like u
Ur a** is really pixelating right now...!!!
J108i is such a creepy fone.,the basic features are very good except for the loudspeaker.,Sony would've sold a lot more Cedars if the fone had a better speaker.Multitasking and internet is decent if not great.,fone has got a very attractive look and a sexy keypad,..!! Battery life is very good. I've heard software update does help with the sound thingy but hey, speaker is hardware and do not expect a miracle updatin ur software.,The fone is just another marvel sans graded(atleast standard sony) audio feats.
After updating to new version R7EA011, its working like a charm & sound in headphones is feeling like somewhat increased. Updated just before 2 hours.

Here r the examples -
Multitasking, huge internal memory (280 mb), preloaded google maps, much better 2mp camera than other brands, much better sound quality in headphones, really nice screen as compared to other phones of same price range, photo fix, track id, super nice & very snappy user interface, no hanging or switching off, really nice keypad, nice design, preloaded facebook, twitter, myspace, youtube, neo barcode reader apps, onscreen widgets, music call, sense me, ultimate java support, virus free bcoz se's java interface is based on Linux (which is virus free), unlimited msg storage etc......
When I searched for software update from my mobile, it said you have latest software. But when I updated using pc, my cedar gets updated from old R7DA056 to new version R7EA011.
il get back on here every hour if i can.
btw i wanted to say i find it hilarious the music they give with the phone, background noise of an airport? restaurant? office? is that music? you just hear background noise of a restaurant like as if ur in a restaurant lol but geuss what! you dont hear any of it cause of the real background noise your in.
i dont want to meddle or be the bad guy but you people wanting to buy this phone, i say check it up first, test it, re-test it, there are to menny real brands out there with mutch better and stronger phones. ,this one is ok for 15euro's not a cent more.
i had sony ericsson before and was very happy with it, thats years ago when SE was cinda new, now its the last on my list, my next phone i love will be the LG gc900. ,its just unacceptable the way they block the volume and its not the first SE to be like this, am pretty shure you gona answer me you have the same problem and ther aint nothing to do about it, this max volume ear damage protocol is for a cat with headset on, not for humans!... for the rest its a good phone i geuss as long as your a cat who wants to wait 5min to loud facebook and stay out of the rain and have a good grip with ur hands cause this phone is like a puk on ice, but hey thumbs up for recycled material ;)... yea i dont like this phone lol nor SE, someone has to be critical, for those who'll buy and regret but its all up to you and your taste is what counts, dont listen to me, and am waiting on feedback of my little problem, thx...
Hi all, i need help about SE Cedar
1st: with cedar you mean ''Sony Ericsson j108i'' ?
if yes am att the right place, ok here is my problem
my mom bout it yesterday for herself, the speaker volume is bad just to bad in a way i cant believe.
am looking up the whole internet and all i find is people talking about the low volume with headsets or low volume with music and so on, but what about ringtones, what about hearing ur phone ringing while you watch tv or while your talking with a friend and your phone rings 5m from you on the desk ?
this is just unacceptable the way this phone is low volume, iv set it on max volume (8) and it dares telling me ''watch out loud settings can damage your hearing'', wtf? i swear on max volume i have to put the down side of phone against my ear to even be able to hear the different sounds of the music, we where talking and i heard something and it was the phone 3m away on desk ringing, omg luckely i have good ears lol, what about a wakeup ringtone? she would never hear it, my dog scratching himself is louder, am no noob to phones iv done all the settings, i know SE is like that.
MY QUESTION: do you guys have same problem ? plz help
i wanna know if this is a fabric damage or whatever or if this is with everyone, so do you have the problem about not hearing your phone ringing while you should, i can hear my LG VIEUWTY from far away watching a movie on loud, my phone's wakeup alarm can wake up the neighbors ''car alarm ringtone'', iv bleutooth it to my moms new cedar and its just freaking loooow.
sorry am new on forums, thats why i wright a book for a simple question :(
so is it a fabric damage or how you call it (not english) or is it normal (wich is unacceptable)
you buy a cheap phone (uh cheap) 60euros yesterday 16.01.2011, just to call and be calld and you cant hear it ringing?sony ericsson? all you guys who has normal phones and e.g. max volume is 10, put it on 3 and thats max of the cedar, my lg has to be on 1 and is still slightly louder.
thank you for reading and helping if you can and sorry for the noobish forum add
