How to read phone's Memory thru the USB cable?

I plug in the cable in my phone and connect it to the USB and can't read the memory from the M2 in my phone, only the phone's internal memory. Any one know what I need to do to make it work?

I have already done the control panel, going to System and then uninstall the USB and then letting the computer read it again and install it but nothing.

Likes & Dislikes so far

I have had this device for a few days now, so this is by no means a full review, only first impressions that will hopefully assist those looking into getting this device.

First off, this is a camera first device, and the camera is very good, as it should be for an 8 MP. The photos are crisp and well balanced, and video is good as well.

Seeing I set this up on a new line of service, I have not had a chance to make or receive any calls yet, so I cannot comment on the call quality.

The internet through EDGE is pretty good. I wish my area had at&t 3G.

Some dislikes are as follows:

My at&t device did not come with any M2 memory card. Also, being that it takes a non standard memory card, it is more difficult to find than say mi...
The phone reads a 16 Gb M2 card with no problem. I'm using the one that I had in my W760a.

While I prefer the keypad from the W760 I find that I do like the thickness of this device better. It feels more substantial to me.
I ended up returning the device, but I would still recommend it

I'm really liking the sound of the c905 -- great camera and interface is to my preferences.

My only reservation is of the phone's durability. I have a tendency to be a bit klutzy with my phones -- drop them, etc.

It was mentioned in the review that the phone has a plastic feel... so am I correct to say it's not durable?

Any owners of this phone with thoughts? If you'd agree that it's not durable, any recommendations for a similar, yet tougher, phone?

Let us pray

I ordered mine from ebay since ATT locks a ton of abilities and junks it up with alot of sales pitches. Buy ringtones, buy this, buy that ... and not being able to delete this stuff is more infuriating. I work for ATT and with our discount and 1 year contract i would only be saving 50 dollar to limit the phone and junk it up. I've always liked sony's software its very intuitive. I started with the t226, then got the w300, w200, s700i, w800i, w580i, s500, and the w760a. I have a phone fetish i guess. I've had a Blackberry Curve, Iphone and a ton of other phones but i think Sony is the best made and operational. Lets pray my ebay seller doesn't stiff me the 300 sommolians.
Quick question can I take out my sim card from my iPhone and use it with this phone, will there be any problems. Thanks

Pure genius from AT&T

I can't believe I waited for this phone only to have AT&T disable Wi-Fi.Looks like I will have to buy it unlocked. 🙄

If you have it, I'm sure you can de-brand it.
looks like they crippled the email app on it as well... way to go at&t. they ruined another phone.

Debranding Works

Used Team Davinci and generic firmware 'Customized AR/ICE SILVER (1216-9346) AMERICA

Got wifi, exchange activesync, smile/face detection and all the other stuff back.

Are we missing some features?

Ok, what did AT&T do with the Wi-Fi? WTF!
Alright Mister Moderator, let us know, you didn't mention anything about wi-fi which this phone is supposed to have.
Yep, I'm afraid WiFi is not present on the AT&T version. The generic one has "WiFi" and "GPS" printed on the right side. The AT&T version just has "GPS" printed in that spot. It's also nowhere to be found in the menus, etc.
how big is the screen?

black C905a for AT&T?

Will AT&T be getting the C905a in black? I went to the store and the guy said they only have silver and he did not know if they would be getting the black one.

Thank you,
I learned a long time ago to never say "never". But at introduction, it will be in silver only.

Pop3/IMAP probably IS supported...

The AT&T unit may not support this, but unbranded units almost certainly do. Unbranded w300, w350, and w580 all had full email clients, but the AT&T version did not. The review should state in the title that it is a review of an AT&T-branded phone.

AT&T replaces it with a POS email client which only accepts certain services, and lacks push support and other things.

Also, I am not sure that this sentence makes any sense:
"The messaging services were improved with the addition of support for more IM clients"

The "client" is the software on the user's handset (or the entire handset itself). Maybe you meant "services"?
Yes, it's a review of the AT&T version.

"Client" is a term that could be used either way, in my opinion. It does sort of act like there are three different IM programs on the phone. Once you sign into AIM, it becomes the AIM program, with an AIM in...

Get a new hand model

Why in the world would you show off a phone with someone who has hands that look like they have leprosy...
Those are my hands. It's called eczema. I can't do anything about it. I am sure YOUR hands, however, are perfect.
