I did alot of online reading before I got this phone and guess what.. those forums are lying thru their teeth.. Even for this website.. Performance : 8.4.. i guess this is one of the lousiest phone ever made by SE. Reasons:
1. When connect Phone to Computer thru USB, all computers cant detect my phone despite having phone repaired twice.
2. Used for 4 mths and now sometimes when receiving call, though it is not on slience mode, the phone just do not have any ringing sound nor vibration.
3. The touch screen does not work like once every fornight and you can't call out as the phone do not have any CALL button except on the touch screen.
4. The phone would always reflect MEMORY CARD CORRUPTED and you have to restart your phone to make it working.. Its not the memory card problem though..
5. Most of the time, it would vibrate on its own without receving any CALLS!!! (PERTURB TO THE MAX!!)
I m utterly disappointed with SE product though I am a fan of it for past 5 years.. I m considering Nokia phone for now...
Ivan, 01 Jan 2009does UIQ 3 apps/games work for this phone?Yes...it does ;) The most sys-files(=applications only for symbian-os) are made for the symbian s-60 and for the symbian UIQ...this means, g900 supports sys-files(applications,games etc.)
and it supports jar-files(Java games, applications etc)too!
Sorry my english
Keyan, 29 Dec 2008Hey guys, which one's better: Sony Ericsson G900 or Nokia N85. I wanna buy a new phone and the... moreI think you should by N85 instead of G900. Besides, N85 has more features to offer.
I just bought this phone and already have some problems with it. Internet doesn't work eventhough wifi is connected. I can't connect my phone with the computer through the Usp. Can anyone help?
Excellent phone. The best sonyericsson after the xperia! Everything is cool and fast with this device. Moreover, it's camera is good, the touch is very responsive and quick, it holds 8gb memory cards and the size and shape of the phone and screen are apropiatelly. I really love this phone and I recommend it to everybody. Besides, it is very cheap!!
I have now had this phone for 3 months and its a nice simple design. I personally do not use the phone for any internet functions. I did like the extra touch screen pencil they supplied as i lost the 1st one within a week of having the phone... so well done there S'E. The note pad function is fun and useful too, I've found the touch screen and its functionality sometimess problematic and while its bearable not always ideal!!
Now for the BIG gripe.... has anyone mentioned the fact this phone takes super pictures in the day where there is daylight... but come a dim lit or dark area the flash goes off well before the pic can be taken so what you get its a dark image of people or the pic. My friend she has a G900 same thing and another friend has the C902 and again the same thing. We tried playing about with the settings and nope does not work well.... I have a Nokia N73 and the flash on that World Class and S'E phones cannot take pics in dim lit areas to save its life and thats pretty poor indeed... if you want to use the camera in low lit conditions STAY AWAY FROM THIS PHONE... choose a Nokia!!
i HAVE A QUESTION HERE...
does the Sony Ericsson g900i has video editors (i mean the videodj?) just like the k850i? which has an advantage: g900i, iphone 3g, or n82?
I just got back from a three day trip to the "sister island of Bali", which is the Lombok Island, and took some picture of the scenery there...
I'd be lying if I say that the results were amazing or anything like that, but they are not as bad as many people say...
I believe it deserves some credit, and moreover, some had bad experiences with water splashes?
my phone survived a half an hour sea water splash during a one hour fifteen minute, fishermen's boat ride on a constantly wavy water, while crossing a strait, and it lived to tell the tale...
the water splashes were i think about 1 cm wide each and my phone got them head on...
no problems with the touchscreen, at all, nor with the speakers...
it's been a long time since i've had any freezes or problems, but about two or three weeks ago it did freeze, n it happened when I was using the media player for music and minimized media update where I pressed the 'back' button many times rapidly to get back to the standby screen...
the screen turned black, nothing worked but the playing music and, oddly, the lock button...
so I took the battery off and put it back on...
I got the G900 but it started giving touch screen probs, phone memory was full and couldn't delete because of touch issue.Sent it back...Im now phoneless...Its a great phone despite its probs.
sony ericsson fired 16000 worker!!!
what so surprising about their joystick,
if its not durable
walkman is OLD and dead since 90's
they dont really came up with a new name to their fones, afterall it just simply the old walkman
walkman is walkman, not fones
aLL S.E. walkman starts their design with a clit/nips like in the middle

Serene, 27 Dec 2008I hate this phone. Period. This is one of the worst I have ever used, and the sad part is I... moreI totally agree with you. I am so frustrated with SE after experiencing the worse of G900. I have sent it for repairs 5 times in a span 02 months and the problem has yet to be solved. They are unable to tell me what is wrong, except making a guess each time I send in the phone. The screen freezes. The second time they tell me it has got to do with the memory stick. Now I am not sure what the excuse is this time round.
There are various kinds of high quality Sony Ericson phones . However, G 900 is one of the best phone ever made by the company.
It is going along with the standard way of everyday living of people around the world It meets what those meet such as fast internet search, wonderful pictures capturing, something like that.
Thank for all users of Sony Ericson.
You could contact me via my mobile phone : 855-12--808859 or 85512-644886
I am going to wait for all of your contact.
Hey guys, which one's better: Sony Ericsson G900 or Nokia N85. I wanna buy a new phone and these r my choices...
I've read that G900 is a little slow... is it true?
Thanks to all! :D
Evans Liu, 28 Dec 2008how many messages it can store ? who can tell me pls!thanksCurrently i have 450 messages in my inbox. I guess it can store as much as the phone memory permits without any restrictions.
I have installed GDesk on my phone! It's awsome!!! If you can't make your own designs you can download them ready made. Google for it and you will not be disapointed!!! Never thought i can do such things with my phone, thanks to the touch screen!!!
I bought this phone two days back in Riyadh. I tried to turn on Camera, it didn't. I went back to the shopkeeper, he tried different things but in vain. He replaced it with a new phone, and it had the same problem. He gave me another (3rd) new handset and surprisingly it had the same problem. We could not turn on the camera. Finally he had to return my money back.
Reason why i am sharing this information is to check if any one else has faced this problem. Or there is any specific setting that has to be made during initial setup. As all three new phones cannot have same problem.
I am now reveiwing my decision of buying G900.
