I have had this phone since June 2010. It now does not send emails for me. I cannot send to facebook on it either. So it does not do what it has been designed to do. When I send pics by email it denys access. I can't change the settings on it so my email password is accepted. I would not recommend this brand any more.
I've had this phone for almost 2 years now. I got it brand new and about 2 months after I got it it started saying inactive sim, which was really annoying and to fix it I had to turn it off wait a while and then turn it back on. It would do this about 5 times a week!
Had this phone for over a year (was second hand when I got it) and I JUST LOVE IT - got everything I need and is sooo easy to use! :) recently keeps going INACTIVE SIM so much so that I have to use another phone most of the time (which I hate as is a touch job). it makes me miss my phone even more!! Have tried taking battery in and out which initially worked but now may work but only for very short time. ?????? anything else I can do. I can't get hold of a new one.
Shedder Tom, 28 Jul 2012My Phone won't load. It goes to "please insert SIM card". It allows me to have a dem... moreIf the card worked with the phone before it might be the SIM-card reader, that is broken.
Else try to another SIM-card and make sure it is inserted properly.
Test with a friends SIM-card or ordering a replacement card.
My Phone won't load. It goes to "please insert SIM card". It allows me to have a demo of the phone or make an emergency call. A Telstra SIM card is inserted into the phone. It wont recognize that card. What do I do?

JK, 26 Nov 2011I have had the W508 for two weeks, it is great except that it has message 'Emergency Calls Onl... more It shows emergency only because you are out of signal, no reception. Is an issue with your network provider. All phones have that built into them, they can take another network and allow u to dial emerg. numbers only7
i've used this phone for 2 years and my experiences are:
-it accidentally fall to the toilet bowl.then it turned off by itself.i waited for about 1day till it truly clean and dry.when i turned it on, it still works perfectly except for the "Back" button.since i truly love this phone,i juz let it be...
-it fell for about tons of times and sometimes it does have those "Inactive Sims" going..but i juz open up the battery,clean it,and fill the battery back and switched it on.it works perfectly for me..=)
-since i'm a music keen (awesome bass)and flip lover..i love u my whitey W508..=D
