First time using sony ericsson cellphones. Nice and easy to use, customizable d-pad, and good storage on it for the price, however after a few months of owning this phone had noticed phone turning off randomly as others in previous comments have stated, and inactive sim message coming up. taking the back cover off i noticed that the sim card moves around ever so slightly even with the battery in its place, so placed thin strips of paper wedged between the battery and the sim card so it cannot move around. phone has been working how it should and hasnt turned off or come up with sim inactive in a few months, although shouldnt have to resort to using paper to make my phone work how it was meant to in the first place

Without doubt this is the worst phone I have owned, - and its the first Sony Ericsson. Despit being in for upgrades, repairs (a 5 day one taking 6 weeks), checks and so on, it frequently says 'Inactive Sim' - even when sitting untouched on a table, in my pocket or similar, still turns itself off without warning, now decides it is not 'setup' to send a a 'new message' after I've been doing it for 18months. I am sick of having to pull the battery out and having to restart the phone. It's a nice slim, compact phone (poor camera) but for reliability scores minus

I have had this phone for years now and i love every part of it apart from when it goes inactive sim which is ALOT also when it does not think it has a sim card in it at all! note: when it goes inactive sim it means the phone cant be used at all untill you reset it and no it isn't just my phone, others have reported the same problems.

But W980 has a bigger screen at the front+ built in FM transmitter+ a cool lit up panel at the bottom ( cool in my opinion ). ow the choice is yours, hope this helped.
