i dont care about the wi-fi or gps in phones those r just there for bragging rights and i allready have a gps so its pointless to have a phone with one aswell. All i really want is a good reliable phone and the samsung seems like it ive bin reading up and asking around and the fingers point at the f480 sure i know texting will be abit harder but u learn the tricks of every phone. im not gonna moan because it has or doesnt have this or that thats why the spec sheet is there so you can see what it has and what needs the phone will comply to, to what you want, rather than read it then complain about something stupid that you know isn't in the specs like wi-fi. thanx for all the input on this phone and the experiance's shared of using it more good than bad it only just arrives in sa this week so the minor bugs should be ironed out by now.

I was thinking of getting the SE c902 but the reviews havent been kind and to me getting a phone that costs close to R6000-00 (South-Africa) only to have hassles getting the firmware updated is bad on any scale. Don't get me wrong i love SE im a fan but i feel this time they had abit of a miss with the product.
can you do anything with this phone? for example can you download applications or anything?! just wondering?!
How can I delete a video which I have taken and saved on the phone please help ???

Are you sure you want to make the move to Samsung?
-The main things I liked more in SonyErricson was the
nice earphones and sound quality of the walkman-Samsung have made progress, but the F480 is not there yet. Earphones have a cheap feel and don't come close to the superior quality of SE.
-SE handles txt messaging better-Samsung tried but did not succeed
-SE has better phonebook-Samsung rearranged and renamed all my contacts, I can't seem to find some of my numbers on the F480
-SE has better call making loud and clear-On F480 some of my friends can't seem to hear me.
The good points on F480 are
-The big nice resolution screen
-The camera is good once you tweaked the settings
-The widgets are great
-Interface is good
-Music recognition like track id on SE, even provides the album cover
Please try and test the phone before you tie yourself down for at least a year or 2.
This phone is good so if you are thinking about upgrading go for it its wicked. But if your going on pay as you go its really expensive
I think its going to be a great phone. Infact i am planning on getting this as a upgrade and im upgrading from a se w850 (which i love) and its free on my 315 contract the ONLY thing that bugs me a tiny bit is with texting as this wil be my 1st experience with a touch screen but im willing to learn and get use to it. And not having wifi doesnt bug me as the phone is better in every way with what im using now (se w850) i give it a thumbs up. Im a avg user and this fits into what i want and need.
How I can listen music songs through FM Radio. where it is option in this mobile phone
jonathon, 16 Jan 2009this phone is very good i will need to buy this phonewat so good of tis phone? quality of this phone too sux. i have it for 3 month then touch screen cant used anymore even after service, camera easy spoiled summore. SAMSUNG, when u wan improve quality of phone? a lot ppl complain of u tat quality cant last long for 1 year, even SE C902 just a normal cameraphone, at least the quality of phone and photo taken by it is far better than F480

I have been experiencing the same problem. you need to leave the phone for a couple of minutes and then it starts working again. Its no use giving the phone for repairs.
my f480 screen keeps freezing what do i do?..when it does i hav to leave the phone and try again later
I have this phone for a month now and I must say I am rather dissapointed. As we speak my phone it is at the repair shop due to drop calls. It started from the beginning and numerous websites report on this. I changed to samsung after more and more dissapointing phones from sonyericsson and now I wish I stayed with SE. Even though SE gives lots of compromised phones they are still good for making calls.
I have a beautiful gadget put not a phone
