C905 No SMS Conversation View or Smile Shutter

Hello,

I recently bought a Sony Ericsson C905, and it didn't seem to have any of the features mentioned so I tried to update it using the PC Companion software which I downloaded from the Sony website. However the software is telling me my software is up to date, when clearly it's still on a previous edition.

I have tried turning the phone on and off after connecting it to the computer but nothing has changed.

Would appreciate any help on this!

Cheers

It sounds like your phone has a software customization that doesn't include these features.

(Pretty common with carrier branded devices)

Give me the SI number of your phone and I can tell you the name of the latest software available for you.

The SI number can be found behind the battery, SI XXXX-XXXX.

This is indeed a carrier branded device (Telefonica to be precise).

Many operators chose not to include the conversation style / smile shutter since they did not want to change a function in a product that was already launched. Not sure why but Telefonica are clearly one of them.

Unfortunately, there's nothing to do about this.
