i am going to buy this phone soon. i want to know can i able to configure it radio alarm.
I picked up this baby for its internet power, if u planning to use it as modem on the go,u cannot go wrong with G502..really value for money.
Add a flash theme and some mod like walkman sound driver,camera driver,main screen layout using a2uploader..the result is just WOOW!
Vaibhav, 28 May 2009users of this phone please tell me hows it for doing sms... id its keypad reliable for a SMS a... moreHi Vaibhav
The keyboard is better than I expected. Roughly on a par with my walkman. The phone lacks just two features I'd like - a full qwerty keyboard ala Nokia and wi-fi. Apart from that, its perfect. It's keyboard is about standard for a alphanumeric keypad from SE with good tactile feel and feedback. Its better than the 'virtual' keyboards on quite a few touchscreens I've tried. Touchscreen is one feature I do NOT miss.
In short, don't worry the keyb is fine for SMS messages (which are limited to 160 chars anyway). Most of its apps that require specal symbols or emoticons (e.g. email) have an options option for the characters menu which gives access to its whole character range includng underline, @ and emoticans etc.
adekbiroe, 27 May 2009Sony ericsson website write that g502 support up to 8gb of m2
https://developer.sonyericsson.... moreThanks adekbiroe :)
I feel better about going for a 8GB card now. I fit 802 mp3s on a 4GB card so I should easily fit 1000 on a 8GB plus have quite a bit of room spare for messages and apps etc. Excellent!!!
Thanks again :)

For those interested, let's start a modding discussion for g502. Try this link http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=32521&st=0&gopid=519806entry519806
Not much going on in that forum. Let's make it alive. I'll soon post images and files on the moddings i've done with my phone. Share yours. See you there.
users of this phone please tell me hows it for doing sms... id its keypad reliable for a SMS addict person???

The '3' site says the maximum size is 2 GB (wrong!).
The SE site says it has support for 4GB and the 4GB that I bought works brilliantly (with no slow down even with a full card).
The GSM Arena site says 8GB - which I'd like but it is an expensive 'experient' to buy one if it doesn't work. So has anybody actually used a 8 GB card with it?

I've not tried that since I use a webcam on my PC - but webcams are so cheap and freely available now why not just buy a webcam and so not tie up the phone as a webcam anyhow?
I suspect that you can't use it as a 'real-time' webcam anyway.
vineet, 25 May 2009Can we do Video calling by it's 2MP camera
PLZ tell me I want to by this in may 2009Hi Vineet
The 2 MP camera is rear facing but there is a video calling option on the contacts menu but I guess you'd have to hold a mirror behind the phone since there is no front secondary camera :(
You could try getting a k660i instead which is basically the same phone but with a secondary front facing VGA camera (so costs a little more).
I dont do video calling myself so I can't help you any further I'm afraid.

SE G502i is a cheap phone from SE but the fiture are complete which you can find in the expensive phone such as HSDPA & 3G network.

FOr what its worth my HBH-DS200 bluetooth stereo headphones work a treat - but bluetooth so uses battery power a bit.
PS Since I put locks on the phone and USIM it sometimes reports a SIM error when starting the phone but it works fine still.

The A2DP bluetooth is brilliant at streaming mp3s from phone to PC to hifi. The 2 GB card from my walkman worked great - snd I bought a 4 GB card which now has 802 mp3s on it. Does the phone work with 8GB cards? The SE site say 4GB, '3' say 2 GB (so what do they know?) and GSM Arena says 8GB. I wish stes would post accurate info.
It's as good for music as my walkman (but with no distortion at max volume). All in all I'm very impressed with this phone. Its got the latest firmware and reset itself only once. Its PAN bluetooth networking works for a while then it disconnects grrr.
The SONY E PC s/w suite is crap - I stopped using it.
My walkman's USB data lead works great with it (you dont get one in the box - which is a shame).
The music volume is excellent. Calls are clear too :)
Battery life is ok except when using the Net - then it only lasts a few hours from a full charge grrrrr
All in all, its the best phone in the cheap end of the PAYG market in my opinion. The keyboard is more tactile than I expected. I recommend the phone and a 4GB card for people on a payg budget.I'm oing to risk getting a 8GB M2 card - pity that M2 cards are so relatively expensive.
im a SE-G502 user for almost 3 mos. already and I have no regrets on buying this phone..i luv it..but my question is -Can i use my g5o2 camera by plugging it into my pc and use it as a webcam? pls help me..
