Tuffy, 09 Sep 2008It is a great phone but i've had so much trouble with my phone locking up and the screen going... moreMy daughter had a similar problem with the phone freezing etc. We were advised by the T-Mobile shop (where it was brought from) to update the software on it on the internet using the CD ROM that came with the phone. We did this and had no probs since. Hope this helped.
I wouldnt reccommend this phone to anyone. I find mine impratical to use and the phone crashes and goes blank during calls, playing music, searching through contacts and any other processes you would consider simple. I was not made aware of the issues this phone has raised when i chose it for renewal with 3. They also refuse to exchange the phone =( Camera is brilliant however and so is the internet, but general phone use is very slow.
Got this phone on Saturday (Wednesday now) and am really happy with it.
Had some problems with the battery life barely lasting a day but knocking the brightness down to 80% and getting rid of the animated wallpapers and screen savers has stopped that.
No problems with the menu or freezing, but think I have the latest firmware anyway.
I really hope my provider remembered to put me on an unlimited data package like I asked, because I have really been abusing the high speed downloads of late. ^_^
is the c902 really that bad? I'm planning to buy c902 or g900 but cant make up my mind. could someone give me the ups and downs of the 2 phones base on your own experience, and views.
i know the problems about the alarm doens't go off and that the phone turns it self of. the solution is to sent te phone back to SE and let them have a software upgrade
it also happend with my phone
Soph, 10 Sep 2008I have had the phone replaced twice in the two months I have had it and again the alarm doesn'... moreWould recommend that you update the firmware. I used to encounter the problems which you had, but since I updated the firmware to R3CA038 last week, the phone has been more stable since.
Best to do the update via SEUS.
I have had the phone replaced twice in the two months I have had it and again the alarm doesn't go off, blacks out and it freezes. No good!
im getting the c902 but im unsure about it now as i have read reviews and alot of them are not good. dont knw what to do
This phone is awesome. Blazing fast downloads and the camera is wicked cool. I've had Blackjack & blackjack 2 but this phone blows them both away. With 3g capability, 5 megapixel camera and 8 gigs of removable storage, what else could you possibly need? It's even better than my old w810i.
It is a great phone but i've had so much trouble with my phone locking up and the screen going black for no reason, only to then come on again a few minutes later but with no reception as it seraching for the server provider. Has anyone else had this problem? it is so annoying!! it might just be my phone
hi out there i'm not knocking s/e they do make good phones but the c902 needs recalling i've had 4 since july and all failed due to the same complaint (freezing,crashing,apps not working and camera lens fell apart ect)lets hope s/e can get this sorted like i said before they do make rearly good phones so take my advise and leave the c902 on the shelves sorry:(
cu, 08 Sep 2008Dont believe in the negative rightups about this phone seC902 bought this phone almost 3weeks ... moreI am glad that you are satisfied with your phone. However, you should not down play the problems that I, and so many other customers, have with theirs. In all honesty, I never write my opinion about anything, but I believe, with such passion and conviction, that this phone is a piece of dung that I could not contain myself. By the way, my phone is frozen as I write this message.
I am really unhappy with this phone. Sometimes it seems like it has a mind of its own. Dropped calls and cut-offs are so frequent that I got used to them. Other than that the phone likes to turn itself off and nothing you can do will bring it back to life, until Mr. C902 is ready to work again. Do yourself a favor and buy something else, God forbid, but you might actually need your phone to work and you will be left out to dry.
I bought this phone over a month ago and at first it was brilliant, but it's starting to freeze a lot now and my alarm doesnt sometimes work. It's annoying when im trying to text and it freezes. I regret buying this phone. I've always stuck to samsung and never had a problem, so im going to go back to them once i get rid of this phone. My advice is dont buy it, a lot of people have said they have had the same problem with the freezeing. I'm not very happy.
Can you play game emulators on this that you can play on the PC e.g. Mega Drive, Game Boy, Super Nintendo etc?
phone regularly turns itself off, freezes, alarm doesnt work. not happy..
Dont believe in the negative rightups about this phone seC902 bought this phone almost 3weeks and i havent experience any thing said in the negative opinions. This phone is the best compared to rival brand , above all its a pocket friendly.

The software problems, sometimes, based on where was that software built. I feel that SE creates the software for their phones hurriedly. So, many bugs come to their phones. Like my K660i. Many bugs are inside
I have this phone on a 24 month contract and I am sure that it won't last this long, I love everything about this phone on paper, but not in reality.
After using it I have faced many problems with this phone for example the alarm clock doesn't work, poor battery performance and it turns itself off whenever it wants and I cannot turn it on.
It freezes, stalls and sometimes doesn't even recognise it has a sim card in it. It sends messages multiple amounts of times without warning. Also the most frustrating is that when I get a phone call most of the time it doesn't ring and goes straight to voicemail and I miss calls continually, everyone comments on not being able to get in contact with me.
I think that they have stuffed too much into this phone and it can't manage to keep up. I will be calling sony ericcson to plead my case as I know that it won't last my full contract and I need to get a new phone that will, 2 months in it just seems to get worst.
Sad I know because it could be such a great phone, I would not purchase this phone if you are considering it, and I say that as a huge fan of Sony Ericsson :(
