I know this phone very good. Everything for its price is okay in case you update firmware to R1F..35 OR R1F...37 and you accept a small but excellent display and a hard and uncomfortable keypad / buttons (which means you can not play games longer than 15 minutes). This is the truth.
i think this g502 is one of great phone ever (4 it's price range). all u need to do is search se forum (u can googling it) to find out how to customize n' maximize this phone. for the restart problem, just update ur phone fw to r1fa037 n save all to mem. card so the phone memory can stay at 32 mb or more. now i have 35 mb of phone mem. free n' everything work fine on my g502.
rajesh, 24 Dec 2009Friends,
Before buying this phone, pls pls check with guys who have used it. 8 out of 10 user... moreHehe...rajesh of e63. We likes this phone. But we knows about symbian, linux, RIM BB, Win-mob, apple os. And android device too.
Nothing perfect thing in this world
If u often stay connected for long,then it is not the best choice but nokia phones in this sense r worth going for else u cannot demand for anything more in this price range.I liked it!!!
Before buying this phone, pls pls check with guys who have used it. 8 out of 10 users will never suggest this phone. this will restart automatically even while you are talking over the phone.
Just imagine, you are talking with your boss / girlfriend and phone got turned off.
Evenafter updating the software, it will piss you like anything
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2009i believe ur problem of lost connection is a network (service provider) problem and not the phone...very recommended phone!!!!!
u can email, use it as a modem, streaming on youtube, download at high speed
great sound, from speaker or earphone
i was using sony ericsson w302n (SAGEM) before.. and yes, it sucks!!!!

the phone is good generaly speaking it has a good screen and a good camera.but i disslike poor build quality and especialy that the phone knows to turn off and on on its own.thats realy frustrating i never had souch experience with SE phone.
I did one of the biggest mistake by buying this phone. Some of the great features
1) I have around 200-250 contacts, now if i receive/make/missed any call, it doesn't show-up i.e, it shows only those contacts which are already available in contact list ( it shows dialled/missed/received ), but any new number..... no way.
2) From last one-and-half month, i am facing one more excellent feature.... once you are in call, suddenly the call drops, after around 8-10 swconds, the great G502, vibrates, and then it shows "Searching".... ( network is lost ), in the same place where i was using this phone, when it comes back... it works fine. Now imagine, you are attainding important call, may be an "interview", imagine the pain.....
Hope you understand my pain, and never-ever buy this phone. rather buy nokia's 1200 rs phone, or any phone other than sony ericsson may be chinese made also should be better than this junk phone.
leo, 22 Dec 2009i've been using this phone for a year....
during that time, i often plan to change my phone..... morei'm a gree with u. this phone is not quite bad(meaning great) for who knows to used with well. i have this phone since august 2008 (how long times my g502 stay with me now? hehe....), but G502 is discontinued product in my country now.

i've been using this phone for a year....
during that time, i often plan to change my phone..
but now i realize that this phone is excellent..
when u buy a phone, u must know what do u need.. so, u won't regret with the phone... this phone is best for those who need a high speed internet connection..n the material of the casing itself is rigid indeed, because i change my SIM card a lot, n there is not problem with the battery cover n phone stability...
now when ur phone often getting restart it probably because firmware..u should update it to R1FA037..it might help ur problem..
Tunac, 24 Nov 2009This is great phone,but somethimes,when i call somebody,i dont hear the ringing on my phone.It... morei hv been usng dis fone for 4 months. nd nw i hv frsustd lyk nything. as evrybdy sying it gets restrted often its tru....
dont dare to go fr dis !!!!!
else choice is urs..
Sony Ericsson G502 would be a very good phone, but I am very disappointed about the whole company. I bought my phone in January, and had to take it to be repaired 3 times. Now it is in service fourth time and this point they should give me an another new phone, but instead they stated that I hijacked my phone so the warranty went away at this time. They think it but I don't think so.
If you want to buy from an incorrect company then buy a Sony Ericsson mobile phone. That's it.
I have bought this phone about 1 month back. It is the worst phone i have never seen before. It gets restart while browsing. It not supports .avi videos.
Worst mob wile i used yet. Very offen it getting restart, battery prob & low voice in speaker. In this i updated twice orginal software in authorized dealer. I removed M2 card and using for passed 1 month. But still i having restart prob. Better DON'T BUY THIS.
