yep dese new sony ericssons phones are really buggy. i deal phones u knw sell em n stuff. all da latest sony ericssons phones releasing dis now are faulty plus sony are sacking upto 2,000 employees so to get a software update for the phone may come late or might not be up to standards coz they are having trouble with there loss.
I've had this phone for 2 months now and am finding it really frustrating. It crashes when viewing pics, the battery doesn't last very long and accessing contacts etc through the menu is very slow. Definitely not as good as previous Sony Ericssons I've owned. I'm actually considering using my old phone and giving the C902 away.
sooooo... would you reconmend it or now??? coz there seems to be A LOT of problems atm :S
there appears to be a fault with the c902... when recording a video the zoom does not work effectively and is very slow.. the icon that displays how much u zoomed does not work and freezes the phone... the phones4u and other phone shops in my local area have been recalled
Overall pretty happy. Occasional problems with the button size and not giving much tactile feedback
What is the lates firmware? Mine is R3BH002, my previous firmware has also the same problem of skippy music playback. Now its gone, i only used seus.
I posted about Menu being slow and Music Stutter in previous post.
I took it into SE and got it fixed now (BTW, is ridiculous how many ppls is at the center waiting for repairs. I waited 1.5 hrs just to collect my fone)
My new firmware is R2CA037
I think the version i had was the R2CA033 which was causing all the music stutter and slow menu.
Now everything runs smooth and much faster even camera menu comes out quicker and much more responsive.
So find the upgrade firmware if you can.
screen get dirty often.. i can see my finger prints on the screen and its annoying
Dog, 30 Jul 2008U can create slideshows on K850i - a cool feature. Can you do this on the C902?yes you can! it even has slideshow themes like sad which will play depressing music as it transitions or Romantic setting or Happy or Energetic or of course theres always Silent too ;)
Very cool stuff.
Well I've had mine for a bit now and I don't get any freezing at all. Maybe the 902i has a slightly different firmware than the 902.
Either that or there have been updates released that get rid of those bugs.
I recommend it. This has GPS in it, you just gotta get an attachment for it. Google Maps is on it and its pretty sweet.
Tobias, 14 Jul 2008Does this phone have GPS?About 40 days ago, my Vodafone cellphone went dead from too many bangs. Having grown up with Sony products, I visited the SE website & decided to get the W910i(very good design). I believe that since I am no technie, W910i should meet my needs.Indeed, W910i is a wonderful phone if you are young & have good hearing. I found it wonderful when I was indoors but once I was on the busy streets, I was rendered incommunicado. So before I purchased the second phone this time,I checked the various forums,visited various phone shops & decided on the C902.
During the first few days of ownership, I really wondered whether SE had been hiring people to write wonderful reviews for them & inserting bail photos. For I found the camera of this C902 perform worse than my ancient Panasonic DC Lumix FX7.Thank God the walkman is comparable to my previous W910i. Of course, the earpiece volume, ringing tone & speakerphone are loud enough when set on the highest setting.
As a retired individual, I just could not afford to buy 3 phones within 2 months(W910i, C902 & ?), so I decided to experiment with the camera. A few hundred photos later(I have all the time in the world),I discovered that the camera is actually comparable to my ancient 5MP Panasonic Lumix. Here are my comments:
1 Photos taken outdoors & indoors(macro & infinite) are sharp,natural, not blurry at all & with fine color reproduction. When I blow the photo up on my computer screen just showing my cat's head, I can practically see the individual hairs. It's that sharp.
2 However, even up to today, I cannot take an acceptable photo when using the flash outside the 6'-8' range(8': very dim)
3 The more I zoom, the blurrer my pictures.
As regards the battery life, I am charging daily. But if my W910i experience is anything to go by, the battery life should improve as time goes by.
I am very glad I've got the time to experiment with every aspect of this phone.If I were still in the workforce, I would have pronounced this phone rubbish long ago. Now I am very happy about C901 except for the small screen.But then, life is full of compromises,isn't it?
sugar, 30 Jul 2008 help me please im desperate!!! how do u open the lens cover for the camera. my not opening. p... moreHi, first make sure the screen film is removed - its easy to not realise its on the camera, then make sure your not holding the sides when you pull the top, as the sides slide with the top.

c902 - nice phone - But it keeps freezing, it freezes either mid call, whilst in the menu, whilst text messaging or worst still whilst playing music - this is extremely annoying and not what I'd expect from SE.
I have checked with phone supplier and its a known problem and they are waiting for SE to supply new software, but in the meantime I'm meant to download the latest software from SE website - only problem is SE software is to work on a PC only and not Mac. Not very useful to Mac users! - more phone calls and I have a replacement being delivered. Starting to wonder if Nokia should have been my phone of choice after using SE for last 7 years??
I would not get this phone at the moment or recommend it to anyone until SE get their act together - and if in the future it requires constant downloading of the latest software to keep it working I would not recommend it to any Mac user.
U can create slideshows on K850i - a cool feature. Can you do this on the C902?
In this range i think this has been a very classy and very rich phone.. you must be feel proud that you have this phone..
