mine freezes and was wondering what the problem wasjust typed in and found hundreds upon hundreds of complaints my last se as well, camera is excellent but the phone seems slugishly slow

AVOID THIS PHONE
Great phone - very slick, looks good, very slim, easy to use menus but only down side are the keys that are raised from the top which make them difficult to text with
nice and slim to fit in any small holes in my pocket which when on vibrate touches my massive shlong and tickles well! would highly reccommend to anyone who likes ring themselves while on long train journeys or anytime!
This phone has a brilliant camera, but unfortunately you have to balance that against the unreliability.
There is the occasional reboot which doesn't bother me as it's only off for a second before returning to life, but the worst thing is that I often end up missing calls and just ending up with a voicemail warning, something others have mentioned on this page.
I'm a big SE fan, and I normally sing their praises and wouldn't entertain buying anything else, or at least I wouldn't until I got this C902.
I would avoid at all costs - not sure what to do now I'm stuck with this for another 16months! Look around the web - there are masses of people with freezing and other problems that should've been resolved by Sony before it was released. A real shame. My firmware is bang up to date so there's no current solution. Best avoided!
This is the best phone i ever saw on cybershot!! as no cybershot phone can be as slim as C902 and this phone has also the best graphic and a stylo design
i find that after the new firmware there is still lag with the interface.
I just bought a 8gb m2 card and it works fine but its a little slow. not something i am used to for a SE
tips for night photos:
use night mode :)
u can use sephia mode, or after taking a photo, use autocorection in options menu
jimeconomou, 23 Sep 2008The new firmware solved some[not of big importance]problems but now i notice something that i ... morethe latest firmware is R3DA026 which was released on 21/09..but as of now its not available for all regions..
Was thinking of getting this handset but seems that the problems are taking forever to be resolved. Sounds like the C905 will be on sale way before this handset is reliable (if ever).Might as well wait a couple of weeks for C905 to arrive.
The new firmware solved some[not of big importance]problems but now i notice something that i didnt notice before.The screen is a little bit dark now.Some photos or wallpapers appear with more intensely colors and the black parts of a photography are more black now.Is that normal?Is there anyone else faced the same problem?And one more question.The publication of software that my phone has now is 1204-1731 R3CA038 080721.Is there a newer one?
or even use the night mode instead of the light for vid capture and take stills from tha instead... many options and also heaps of light and exposure settings to mess with so don't worry bout inconsequential flash issues there's many solutions
the cam flash is perfectly adequate, and video led is amazingly bright, producing sharp balanced well lit vid in total darkness. if the cam flash whitewashes cos your too close to a subject just snap a short vid and save all the quality still shots you want during playback..
I'm using this phone and nothing happens until now. For my opinion, this phone is awesome.. Just a little bit heavier than my old w810i and the cover of the battery is not easy to take it off. I did scratch a tiny paint inside the lid while try open the cover out. Besides, everything works well.
Is this phone still full of bugs with the latest firmware? A lot of users complained about this phone freeze, shut itself off, slow. Any comments?
Jura, 20 Sep 2008question for soniclg: who the hell gave you 6 phones in just 2 months??? :) didn't have the... morehey Jura...i finally got the C902 !!!! ..) .. i love its looks..nothin can beat it.... but i had some probs in takin pictures in dark...it was pathetic... r there any tips to get them better ??
If its on the 5MP mode, can it still zoom? Cause most of SE phones can't zoom after a high pixel but Nokia can..
if u can download updates directly from your phone, try at sony ericsson official web site.
if that doesn't help, u need to reinstall complete software. i recommend that u return phone to the store (if u bought it at T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2....) and the'll do that for free. but if u bought your phone on the black market, i'm sure that there are some people or companies that handle phone services near u.
