    — Sony Ericsson PC Companion
    Pros: It works fine as a basic text reader or writer
    Cons: Buggy and tempremental, regularly loses connection (Bluetooth), simple actions can cause it to crash

    I have used the various versions of this software regularly (via both cable and Bluetooth) for nearly 18 months and unfortunately it does not seem to be getting any better.
    I am predominately using the software to read and write texts at my laptop (XP Professional) so I do not have to keep handling my W995i while working.
    Big issues for me are
    1. Incoming texts only show up in the software after you have read them on the handset. Ideally I shold never have to look at my phone for texts when I'm connected to the software.
    2. Deleting texts from the software results in the software hanging, crashing or appearing to work ok but failing to send texts by storing them in the outbox
    3. Regularly dropping connection with both cable and Bluetooth.
    4. It becomes glacial if there is a large volume of texts present on the handset.
    5. In-box, outbox and Draft/Unsent have date / time but sent messages do not.
    They keep adding new functions but have not improved on the basics for handling texts.
    For new users to this software I would recommend the following to get fairly stable text messaging;
    Delete as many incoming / sent texts as you can before linking to the software and never delete any texts via the software

    — PC Companion is rubbish, bring back version 6
    Pros: None that i can see
    Cons: Text messages keep disappearing - it's slow - you're always waiting for it to find the phone ...

    It's pathetic - does anyone else make a decent suite that WORKS ?

    — PC Companion is rubbish, bring back version 6
    Pros: Can send text by typing on your PC
    Cons: Contacts does not work, Media does not work, when replying the screen goes white so you cannot read the text you are replying to

    Being able to link to my phone by cable at work and at home is the only reason I buy Sony Ericcson phones, otherwise I would buy an iPhone.
    The latest version is called PC companion and its rubbish on my windows XP laptop, no way will I upgrade on my work PC and home PC.
    On the latest version, the contacts do not work, Media does not work, when replying the screen goes white so you cannot read the text you are replying to.
    This upgrade to the software is simply rubbish.
    How can Sony make such a mess of such a critical piece of software.
    Would love to know how to re-instate version 6 of the old software
