hello! I got this phone like 3 weeks ago an its really good! All my friends seem to like it aswell! It's really easy to control thingy and like its really cute! The only thing i wish it could do was change to like a different colour case! oh yer an it scratches easily. and yu probly will need small fingers or nails to press the buttons. it is the kewlestfone omg it is so awesome you should totaly get it!
I bought this pone yesterday from Vodafone in Aus after accidentally damaging my much loved Nokia 8310 beyond repair. I went to transfer the insurance for my phone over to the new Segem handset and was told that Vodafone do not insure it either because it is likely to be stolen or not well made and easily damaged. I love the phone its cute and has great functions but I'm a little concerned with the fact they will not insure it. Has anyone else had this problem?
Is there a way to get the photos on my PC? I mean, whats the point of 640x480 pics on a 128x160 screen?
If I "found" one of these phones - the Vodaphone version, can I get a Vodafone account, or will they check the phone?
Ok.. Some issues with the Australian Vodafone live version of this phone!
If anyone can confirm or expand further on my findings, please post it :D
If you are thinking of getting this phone, I would get a NON VODAFONE version!! They have modified the firmware of this phone and dont give you any option to remove it :(
Australian Vodafone live Version Sagem My C5-2:
You cant change skins. You will be stuck with the red buttons and even worse, the main screen right hand button will always go to vodafone live :( There is no way to change this so far. Vodafone have ripped the menu allowing you to change it.
Ok, this is big for me..
Real Sounds.. Everywhere says its compatible. And apparently it is. However, vodafone say its not. Go to vodafone live and yeah, NOT COMPATIBLE.. I went to a site on the net, chose the my c5-2 compatible ring tones which basically is all of them, real sounds and real tones etc.. Then did the $5 download a SMS ring tone bit. I get a sms which you then use to connect via wap or whatever its called to download the real sound tone.. So you do that, get charged $5.. then you go to download it.. and it says 'incompatible format' or similar.. I didnt try calling the 1900 number or whatever.. i dont want to waste another 5 or so bucks for nothing..
Ok, so my conclusion is that the Sagem My C5-2 phone is great but from my investigation so far, i'd have to say that the modifications made by vodafone have broken some key stuff with the browser! Can anyone out there with a non-vodafone version confirm you can recieve and play real sounds??!!!
Final say.. The woman at vodafone was so lovely when i purchased this phone.. I was suprised it wasnt sim-locked.. Now i know why.. its WORSE than sim-locked.. hey i can deal with sticking with a carrier for 6 months.. But i cant deal with the fact vodafone have messed with this phone badly and give you no option for it to be undone!!
So.. Feedback is good.. i'd love to hear from ppl without this vodafone firmware.. that just have pure sagem firmware.. can you download real sounds etc??????
If anyone has a copy of the original sagem firmware please email me :D

To add a contact:
Turn mobile on :D
Press UP on the pad
This will bring up contacts
then choose OPTIONS by pressing the / button (top left button)
Navigate down the list to:
Add phone contact
Then press OK (this will add contact to phone memory- and allow display pic)
OR you can choose:
Add sim contact
Then press OK (this will add contact to sim memory but doesnt seem to support picture etc?!)..
It asks for the lastname which for a sim contact seems to be the only name.
When you add a phone contact it asks for last name then phone number but then after that you can add first name, picture, sound.. blah..
Help...i got this fone..and i have no idea how to add "contacts"..its really annoying me!
i tryed 2 download the user guide...it didn't download.!! HELP!
To add photos, different tones etc to a contact.. they have to be a PHONE contact.. not a SIM contact.. at least thats what i've found ;)
I got vodophone version here in aus and it seems to have the skins menu hidden or maybe removed.. so stuck with the red icons.. Anyone know how to change it or get access to skins menu?!
For the person asking where to get the computer interface software, you get it from:
You have to register to get it.. and you have to give the imei number.. *#06# didnt work for me.. if you suffer same, the imei number is on white sticker on the phone under the battery.. :D
Hey guys! I bought this phone a few weeks ago and I reckon dat it's gr8! I read the other opinion things on how to use the caller id, only when I go into my Contacts and Options, I don't get anything saying "Add Photo" can someone help? Oh, and also, how many games is it supposed to come with? Cos on the specifications page, it has Siberian Strike and Gulo's Tale but mine didn't have the second one...please help me!!!
To record with this phone Go into the menu
Go into settings
Then into Sounds
And In sounds there should be a option called Recorder.
To put someone as caller id with a photo...
Go into your phone book and select the person, in options you can see every detail that you have listed about that person, Like name, adress, phone number and there should be a option saying Add Photo.
After accidently putting my phone in the washing machine, i went to australia and bought this one, i think its really stylish, original and cute and at a really good price!! compared to the price of phones in england i was reall ypleased with how much it cost and i think the camera qualiton is really good! all that is left to say is...buy it!! and then...happy texting! xx
I have just bought this phone and it says I should be able to put a photo on as caller photo id. The only problem I have is..HOW do I do that?
Does anyone know?
