Does anyone know whether the new C905 Plus has the issues that the C905 has been having? Or have all those problems been resolved on this new handset?

Thanks.

The earpiece problems and other problems should be resolved on the C905 Plus then.

^ Yes, we hope so for SE's sake. I've been hearing that SE may have recalled the C905 (original stock) so hopefully they'll service the recalled models before selling them this time.
In the midst of all this my old SE died and I've been unable to buy a C905.

I was looking to buy it too so I've been reading all the threads about C905 on the forums here. Don't exactly remember which thread it was (maybe the 'C905 Issues' thread).
Plus I tried to buy it here in India 2 weeks back and two retailers told me that even the SE distributor did not have any stock. One of the retailers is a chain and is an authorized SE service center.

The c905 plus is just a c905 with the latest firmware and an 8GB memory card.


my c905 08w44 is absolutely lovely, best phone ever so far, I use every function of it most days <3

Thanks to having been sent 4 faulty handsets, two of which came with all the bits, I have 2 spare batteries and 2 extra 2GB memory sticks! (and two extra USB cables and chargers).

The only fault that occurred on my final handset was the down key on the d-pad got very stiff.. I almost sent it for repair (rather than replacement) but was not confident to send it off straight away, which was a good move as it seems to have fixed itself.

So as it stands I am extremely happy with the handset now, even dropped it a couple of times and its still solid. So I wont hear anything bad said about it. If you have a problem just get it replaced/repaired until you're happy.. it's worth it!

The C905 plus is ONLY availble for the UK-

Extras:

-8gb memory card
-Years subscription to wayfinder
-Smile shutter
-Sms conversations
-You tube app
-Snapfish

As far as im aware you will be able to update your phone and recieve MOST of those features, except the wayfinder subscription & (obv) 8gb memory card, although im not too sure about the smile shutter.

There is a new advertisment campaign in the UK for the C905 plus, this is now the second advertisment campaign for the C905, first was on release, now the second one specifically advertising the smile shutter. This is suprising because normally se products arent advertised again after such a long perid of time.

yes the standard latest firmware update (R1DA032) includes smile shutter, sms conversations (I love this), youtube app and snapfish

so all that is extra is the 8GB mem & years wayfinders

You can pick up a 8GB sandisk m2 for < 30 anyway so I don't see what the fuss is about.
