...this fone looks amAzing!!...i think,this should be the rivaL of n78..
This is great phone, I have bought it few days ago, immediately updated firmware and downloaded (well, compiled and everything) GpsMid and it is working spectacularly! Without A-GPS it needs a long time to connect to sattelites and sometines it won't connect at all, but only if you are in car/bus/house. With A-GPS turned on, it can connect almost everywhere in a matter of seconds, and it only downloads few KB. Oh, I've turned off 3G, I'm not using it, but plain GPRS is fast enough. With intense use of GPS, battery is holding well, it can be on several hours before battery drains out. I am not using camera much but it seems good, it can record really good video.
Does the phone have a 3.5mm jack and is it avalabile in energy black in south africa ?
Thanks for the information man, now can you help me fix this phone on how to make opera mini work on this phone coz opera mini is a free internet browsing search engine if you are using globe network. Im using opera mini on my k800 and it works perfectly fine and i can browse the internet for free without a cent taken from my load. I already talk to the customer service of globe network but they said to me that they dont have the exact configuration for this phone until now to comply with my request of mms and gprs. Everytime i use my opeara mini on this phone, i always encounter a pop up message saying that theres a failure to connect to the internet. Thanks in Advance.
I have a question I was thinking about purchasing this phone. But I was also thinking about the k850i as well. How does this phone stack up in comparison to that one? Any answers and opinions would be much appreciated.

Im also from the philippines and have the same problem as you are. if i may just ask... moreIt's all free download from SE site.
Go to the site, select Philippines, and click on Support. (Upper right portion)
Then specify your phone model. (Left side box)
You'll see a long list of support for the phone. At the center upper box, go to Software Downloads.
Install 2 programs: PC Suite and Update Services. (These 2 are also found in the CD, in case you don't want to download)
The Update Service will automatically look for new firmware of your phone, and ask you if you want to update.
Be sure to back up everything in the phone memory before you start. (Data on M2 card will not be affected.)
Follow the procedure to the letter. I mean, if it tells you to turn off before or after connecting the USB, do it.
Im also from the philippines and have the same problem as you are. if i may just ask sir how much did you pay for the firmware update? i just cant also use opera mini as one of the user here does. do you know how can i make it run for free web browsing? Im using Globe Network. thanks!
By the way, same as your case, my service provider refused to helped me with the access point settings. Claiming this phone is too new, and they can't help me with the settings. A very convenient excuse. (SUN Cellular, are you reading this???)
Anyway, the SE website did for me what my lazy service provider refused to do.
MANICK, 23 Sep 2008I just bought this phone and honestly not enjoying it. Camera quality is poor, my samsung p850... moreI don't know if this could help.
Have you tried configuring the internet access from SE website?
I configured mine using settings sent to my phone from SE Support link.
Although i haven't tried Wayfinder yet. I browsed thru Wayfinder website. And realized they don't have detailed maps of Asian countries. So i'm not planning on activating it for now, and waste the 3 months free trial.
For now, i'm contented with using the GPS in conjunction with Google Map. It's surprisingly accurate.

My concern is, how do I start using the Wayfinder navigator? When I attempt logging on it asks for access point which my service provider can not assist me with

Thomas Lee, 22 Sep 2008This phone is as same as K810i or K800i. But it has GPS function. That is the difference betwe... moreIf i may, i'd like to point out that C702 is a way better phone than K800 and K810.
With due respect, K810 is a great product. It's the best in its time. But, like all things electronics, it has its days. It can't last forever.
C702 seem to have everything the two Ks had. Of course, plus the new GPS and splash resistant features.
But aside from the obvious new features C702 comes with countless big and small enhancements to just about every corner of the software system. The menu, the text messaging, the speed, etc. Even the way the keys and buttons works.
It's gets a big boost especially in how it multi-task. Speedy and very well executed.
Even the relatively slim size of a phone packed with so many goodies, is worth mentioning.
I've upgraded my phone to C702. (From K550) Basically, just for the splash resistant feature.
But it came with much more features i wasn't expecting. I'm really very pleased with this product.
GPS! This proves very useful, especially on my provincial tours. Coupled with built-in Google Map, it helps me track my routes thru never-been-to towns, and helps me find my way thru alternate routes. I never expect its GPS to be so accurate. I stood at the main gate of our place, and the GPS really points to the gate from the satellite photo. I move to the other side, the blinker moved accordingly, as well. Amazing!
The run-away winner Text Messaging convenience of Sony Ericsson comes with even more enhancements! This really puts Nokia, even the touted N series, in the trash bin.
The camera is impressive. I came from a few SE camera phones which i find really good. So no need to explain the photo quality. But this one amazes me more. The face-detection and short-cut keys are a welcome new features. The press-halfway camera button of previous SE phones were always the best for auto-focus. Now, even the center softkey can do the same press-halfway auto-focus as well! Very convenient!
The short cuts, activity menu, main menus all get nice improvements.
And there's so much more. It's really not easy to enumerate them all. Maybe tomorrow, i'll discover some more new enhancements.
Recommended. The best camera-GPS phone i've ever seen and tried.
I want to buy this phone but i found out that digital zoom is only applied on vga mode that 3X. is it true? when u use the 3.2 mp there is no zooming.. comment about this phone in regards of cybershot.
Has anybody experience with GpsMid on C702? GpsMid seems to have offline maps and in the developer version even voice routing.
This phone is as same as K810i or K800i. But it has GPS function. That is the difference between this 3 phones. But I like the K810i design more because it looks more elegant and luxurious.
Srchks, 21 Sep 2008Can anyone please tell me if GPS requires any service plan or comes with the phone free with/w... moreIf you do not require maps or routing you can use gps for free with this phone (if you turn a-gps off). For maps and routing you require either internet from the phone or a third party offline solution - which are rare and just evolving.
Can anyone please tell me if GPS requires any service plan or comes with the phone free with/without internet connection. Any comments on GPS appreciated. Also have anyone used 3G yet in USA with this phone.
in the main page of sonyericsson say's this phone support until 4 gigas!!
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2008I advise you to go for a software update. My C702 used to be very faulty as well (it shut itse... moreermm... u said download the softwar.. but which software do ii hav to download when ii meet with prob lyk the phone give the inactive sim signal?
