I would like to purchase a new handset, and I am in a confusion among three models ... moreC2-01 is utter nonsense.
It got no video clarity.
It got the worst display.
The speaker is like a radio.
The camera is so dull , low clarity ,pixelated and performs like it can capture only 64k colors.
The phone 3g speed is max 384kbps, is it 3g?.
Symbian 40 v6 is amazingly snail slow than prev s40's like nk 3500
Battery is average.
The clarity issues are a little better in monte.
But it got no 3g.
Just a plain java phone.
Camera is in par with c2-01.
Battery is ok.
With cedar it got the best video and audio clarity.
And a better than 6700 camera with an impressive sensor that absorbs colors brilliantly when put into daylight mode that too stunningly without pixelating. A best 2mp out there.(even pars with 5mp)
Besides it got amazing battery backup.net for 13hr and the phone stands for least 40hr.
Cedar is best among 3, not just 3 among all phones below 5000, unless a new stunning phone is launched.

I would like to purchase a new handset, and I am in a confusion among three models ... moreHey Bddy, I would like to tell u honestly that Nokia have a good battery back-up but this handset suck's. Nokia downgraded the quality it offer's before. Dn't even thnk of Monte, ma bro used it and this handset hang's a lot.
U should go 4 a amazing Cedar one of SE's amazing handset after J105i and K530i. Se provide u with grt quality and better battery and music back-up.
Honestly, there is one drawback in this handset which does not effect's it much and i.e., low music sound on Loud Speaker..
It doesn't effect 'cos it have a 3.5mm headset Jack so u may connect it with u'r music player or either u may use a handsfree instead.
Believe me go 4 it.
Bt at last choice is u'rs......!!!!!!!! :)
I would like to purchase a new handset, and I am in a confusion among three models Nokia c2-01, Samsung c3200 monte bar and the SE Cedar, which one is the best if Cedar why should I? Reply me honestly.. I need ur valuable reply...
macky, 13 May 2011bought it today! red is cool!!!!
cant wait to update it! surely tomorrow!
question guyssss... moreNo .
The phone keep saying it got the latest version.
But it didnt.
So, update via pc. Install pc companion from phone or download update service from sonyericsson website.
Nokia CA-101 data cable is suitable.
Ushanask, 12 May 2011i didn,t update my phone yet. and normal 2g calls i have taken and received for 1 or 2mins max... moreUpdate your phone.
The readings are more accurate, besides usb charging, switch off your phone while charging are enabled only after updating.
Plug the phone to a pc, install from pc companion that is embedded in phone memory pops-up when u do that. Install it and you can update from there.
Re-instal the software if the updater say it already got the latest ver.

question guyssss.. can i update it over the air?
Cedar is a great value for it's price. A photo and video camera, an MP3 and video player, extendable with the cheapest memory modules, uses bluetooth, has email client, web browser, is easy to use as HSDPA modem for PC-s, and, of course, it's a speakerphone. A load of great functions, and many annoying details for demanding users. It seems like SonyEricsson spent sound resources on making this device not-too-comfortable but still OK. First thing is the standby information, more precisely the lack of it. This is not only SE-disease. You look at your internet-phone which is stuffed by tons of up-to-date information: time, calls, messages, communities, push email, location, etc. and what information you get visually: nothing. You have to touch the phone, press a button to make the screen light up amd get the first speckle of information. A Tamagochi: if you want to keep informed, you have to pet it. An e-ink or a b&w lcd gives the visual information permanently with no power effort, no power expenditure. A "green heart" solution is worth to consider iving information even when you don't turn on the backlit colour tv. Former SE-s (like K600) had translucent LCD which gave some visual information even in standby, this screen is totally black. At least a flashing led should indicate if you have incoming message waiting. The other is the shortcuts. Many useful functions, but you have to click through menus. The selection keys (soft keys) are not customizable. Upper right key is "Web" in standby, "Back" in menus. If you press "Back" one more times than needed, you launch the internet browser and potentially spend your money. How nice and easy would have it been to make the basic function of the soft keys selectable. Also, press and hold of number keys in standby would be great shortcuts to your favorite functions if SE made this selectable. In general, Cedar's user interface is made as simple as possible, they avoided many setting options. This makes it easy to use from one hand (not many options to mess up), but also losing many useful possibilities. An example to this is the online map application. This phone does not have built in GPS receiver, but theoretically you could use an external bluetooth GPS antenna. One tiny software part is missing from the maps client: use of the external GPS, which otherwise can be paired to your bluetooth phone for no use. In summary, for a fairly reasonable amount of money you get a rugged phone rich in functions, bittered by irritating inconveniences which are hard to believe not intentional. If you can get used to, if you are ready to accept it "as is", Cedar may be a great choice for speaking, messaging, listening to radio and mp3, reaching your important emails and browsing internet on a qvga screen. The built-in Facebook and Twitter widgets don't work on my phone, the time widget is useless, but all works fine with the Opera browser, which you can download on the Cedar handset. Don't expect sync to Google calendar.
i brought new handset. i dowenloded theams. But it not applaying to my handset. kindly guid me abt that.
