I bought this phone 5 days ago. Iím upset about the camera. It says that this phone use cyber shot but why it canít zoom? The button too small, difficult text massage or email. Gps use credits (in Malaysia). It responds to slow. And it only splash proves. D pad is hard to use.
It's been about 1 yr that i have been using my C702.
Guys but there is nuthhing to worry about the camera quality becoz the new updater has fixed almost all the problems...
But a problem has occured in my fone..
It had once fell and now the camera isn't working at all...
As soon as i flip my camera covers or open camera the display goes off until i off the fone..But it's still taking the pictures when i look into the camera album..
Guys if u know anything about this prob plz plz do let me know thanks.....
anonymous, 09 Jul 2009is it really such a bad phone?I have had this phone for over a year now,It works fine, camera is good, but my gripe is the 1.build quality, it looks so tatty, it is not abused, just kept in my coat pocket, my last Sony,K800, still looks like new & its nearly 3 years old. 2nd gripe, and the main one, is the answer key, way too small. I like the C903 but have concerns about the plastic covers, so it looks like I will be changing to Nokia after 3 Sony handsets, the Nokia 6700 looks favourite.
for those who have a restarting hanging issue on their sony phones, just update the firmware of youre phone,, go to www. sony ericsson.com/support download the software updater to youre computer, after downloading run or start the program,, follow the SIMPLE instructions
to back up all of youre files on youre memory stick before updating your phones because files that is stored on youre phones memory CONTACTS, MESSAGES PICTURES, SONGS will be permanently deleted if you dont saved them on youre memory stick,
WARNING!! when updating is in progress NEVER DISCONNECT IT IN YOURE COMPUTER,,

still cannot replace my beloved siemens ME45...hiks..hiks...
miri, 05 Jul 2009been using it for 6months. the features are good except it switches off by itself and also som... moreKindly help me.I have c702,its camera had a gud resultbefore it fallen by me on ground,Now result is veri bad blurred image.Please help me.What to do???Plz.
been using it for 6months. the features are good except it switches off by itself and also sometimes the phone is not ringing (but still vibrating) when there is incoming calls. these 2 fault is undermining its primary role of a comms device (increasing missed calls). not a recommended model especially for a long time nokia user.
maybe ive been spoilt but this must be the worst sony ive ever had. 1 out of 10 for design. not sure who designed it but they must heve tooth picks for fingers. how the hell do you text quickly on these buttons?
wish i had gone with the 902
have been using this phone for 5 months now. Really happy with it. Have used the iphone, omnia and SE G900 before but realised that this is the phone for me. I can live wtout touchscreen. Weather proofing is an added bonus. Not even once has it hung. GPS/google works great. Batt life could be better tho. Charging it every 1 - 2 days but I guess that is normal nowadays.
after many,many other fones and some were good for what they were designed for (nokia 5310 muso ex, w810i etc..)i am now using this fone and have to say so far so good. flash it to get rid of any network branding and it works faster and only very slight lagging,
shock, water, dust resist is good and camera and music sweeet. i keep in mind that if i want great music or photos i have to get a mp3 player and a digi cam but i dont wana carry around 3 different devices at once when i can have them all on one quality device that does the job just as well. like most things in life if you look after it it will look after you.
This phone does not live up to expectations. The concept is great but the execution very poor. Response time is awful, it switches off a couple times in a day and the screen cannot be read in daylight conditions. The black background and lack of high contrast visibility is a pain on a phone to be used outdoors. Had it for almost a year expecting a software upgrade but have now given up and throwing it in the bin!!
Hi guys, do you know the latest firmware for c702? mine is R3EA037.
I am satisfied with the C702, only that its switch off by itself. I update the software but still its switch off. I hope Sony Ericsson work on the problem because itís frustrated.
I have this phone currently and have had loads of problems with the software, but as it is on contract have to keep it till March 2010. I've found the camera is alright but its began to turn its self off randomly whenever something touches it even slightly, and at times when i get texts and calls. Therefore is pretty much rubbish. I wouldnt recommend it.
