Zushikikato, 11 Dec 2008Hey guyz! This phone really has lot of bad reviews! Really don't know why.. Probably they don'... moreyeah.. i agree with you. i don't like this phone before, but after upgrading the software, i don't have any problems at all..
just lacking xenon flash at night.. hehe..
16gb? yes.. theoritically.. even 32gb is ok for c902.. but SE recommends only 8gb to avoid hanging and freezes..
i'm using 8gb m2 right now, and have not having problems at all..
8gb is too much for me..
Hey guyz! This phone really has lot of bad reviews! Really don't know why.. Probably they don't own the phone.. I never expected before that I will be this satisfied with this phone.. I was one of the skeptics before I bought this phone (Although I bought it when SE released it.. ;))
One thing I can suggest for those who are giving bad comments about this phone;
For the phone owners, try upgrading firmware version..
For those who don't own the phone try using one first..
I would like to ask "AndyCPW" if you are really using 16GB because I'm planning to purchase one myself... I emailed SE but they told that they can only recommend 8GB.. But why settle for less right? :p
I have the C902 Vodafone version. Can i use the normal Sony Ericsson Update Service from the Sony website to update this phone or di i need to get vodafone updates?
laura, 11 Dec 2008Hi people just got a brand new c902 ( got it on 5/12/08 )from vodafone and was excited to get ... morec905 is sick.. it's so fat and it's not handy on the pocket..
you should update your c902's software.. i also experience freeze and the likes..
but after i update my phone using the internet, i did not have experience freezing at all..
Hi people just got a brand new c902 ( got it on 5/12/08 )from vodafone and was excited to get it that is until i started using it, What is the deal with this phone going on to standy all time its a new phone it shouldnt do that also when u text on it it freezes all the time whats that all about and on calls you can talk away and not realise that it has cut you off for like 20 seconds and then your call comes back on ( weird ) , also freezes when you go onto menus and stuff grrrrrrrrrrr . so upset contacted vodafone they said they knew about these issues and so did sont ericsson and that i was to contact them to get it fixed , i went hello dont think so its a brand new phone why should i have to get it fixed more to point why didnt you tell me this before i ordered the stupid thing . Anyway just read some of reviews about it on here seems all the c902's have these faults . Me thinks so need there bums kicked and they should do a mass recall of these phones now , told vodafone come get it i want a different phone now and by way of apology they are giving me the c905 phone and 2 months free line rental go vodafone tahnk you mwah xxxx
iks, 05 Dec 2008yes.. but if you want the light to be a torch you must activate it in video mode, but in w902 ... moreThanks for the advice for finding the torchlight on the c902. It is there. Do you think it is possible to create a shortcut to it?

carlo claveria, 09 Dec 2008update your phone here.. http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed... moreI know how to update, i m asking if we have the same software version, coz i think my software update program doesnt detect new downloads, hence leaving me un-updated.
wow.. thanks missy..
first two weeks, i have been having problem on mp3 only..
but now, its ok..
just upgraded the software via internet and everything is ok..
and this also has 1 year warranty so i have no worries at all..
I really think people should use this phone (if you have bought it) for at least 2 or 3 months before you post your reviews because if you have just bought it a few days ago or a few weeks ago you haven't exprienced the phone properly in depth and thats why you get reviews that are really really bad (about this phone) then you get those eager people that are just very happy to have a nice new phone thatwill post comments not knowing what they could possibly be facing a few weeks or months down the line. my friends who have this phone all experienced MAJOR problems with this phone 2 weeks to a month into using it and nw they can do NOTHING about it. SE willjust send you a new phone or try and fix yours but the failures will still occur... my boyfriends brother is on his 3rd phone in less than 2 months and now he just cant be bothered with sending it back for the fourth time.
Kiira, 06 Dec 2008I just got the c902 today and its ace, the camera is the best. i love taking pictures and the ... moreBe prepared for the software failures which WILL occur anytime from say a weeks time to a months time... i personally know 3 people with this phone and they ALL hate it now. in just under 2 months they ALL had the same problems, freezing, turning off, ending calls, software failures... it may have just been the first batch but the return rate in mobile stores for this phone is around 85%
Sony Ericsson have taken the Xenon flash OFF and put a rubbish flash on this one so the images are no where near as good as the K800i or K850i. It only turns orange as a focus lock thing... I wanted this phone but i have heard/read very RARE good reviews/feedback... My boyfriends brother has this phone and is on his 3rd one in just under 2 months which is ridiculous and the same failures have occured with my friends phone. It freezes for no apparent reason, ends calls/turns off during a call or txting, the WORST phone possibley made my SE!!... DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!the newest phone from Sony Erics is the C905 which has an 8 Meg Pixel Camera and they have put the Xenon flash back onto it... but because the camera is the highest meg pix a phone has at the momnent there have been many software failures and feature failures as the phone is just getting TOOOOOO packed with features to beat other phones on the market. Phones are now becoming BRICKS again like how they used to be and this is causing a lot of software failures...
neil1980, 08 Dec 2008is this the latest software for c902?
