Would it be good to have a page about sensates' powers, e.g. visitation, possession, bi-location...
I noticed in the final scene of a Christmas Special the sensates (Wolfgang, Sun and Will) were all fighting 'the baddies', all three of them in different places each squaring up to different baddies at the same time.
THIS is the right place to post questions and to discuss Sense8 Wiki content :-D
We have at least two pages on sensate abilities, so you could expand those if you have more information. As for new abilities, I think what you saw was dramatic editing to increase the excitement of the fight scene. I do not believe that they can manifest a physical body at another location. This would have made Kala's honeymoon turn out quite differently :-D

I'm not sure what you are implying (sorry, you may not wish to, but I think I need you to spell it out ;))
When Will and Riley pass the phone to each other, it suggests they are physically present. Yes, this could be all explained by televisual editing, but I think the Wachowskis are better than this. There are more series to come and I think we might see bi-location emerge as a power, and we've caught a few glimpses of this. I'm going to have to watch these scenes again. And that's the real fun of this wiki!
Yes, in Happy F*cking New Year, half way through the fight (until then Sun and Wolfgang have occupied the same physical space) there is on camera both Wolfgang and Sun fighting two different baddies (5:23 left to play).
Seconds later, Will steams in as Wolfdgang is attached by someone wearing a green sweatshirt, but from a different camera angle it is just Wolfgang on his own, who then becomes Sun, and then becomes Wolfgang again. So I admit the evidence is patchy.
I interpreted the cell phone scene as him taking over her body just long enough to type in his phone number, but they shot the scene as it looked to them in their heads. To them, the transitions are smooth and almost effortless as long as the other party is willing. If bodies were popping in and out there would be a *BAMF* sound of a teleport, and folks would be screaming about people suddenly appearing out of thin air. This ain't X-Men ;-)

Perhaps there isn't a *BAMF* because this isn't X-Men. And perhaps they weren't screaming about it because they were distracted by getting beaten up in the last scene in Happy F*cking New Year (when they suddenly appeared).
That said Movisign, you are persuading me. However, I'd like to keep an open mind. With another 3-4 series to go, there may be capabilities still to be realised.
