do not buy this phone!!!! i bought 1 4 weeks ago i was 4 days out of my 28 days and the stupid thing broke my buttons have cracked now i am going to have to send it away to have a new keypad!!!!... does everyone think it will happen again??
work for a phone store and this was my choice of hanset. excellent phone, excellent sound, camera is good but if your after it for a camera the older models such as the k750i are a lot better. battery life excellent. the initial problem with the cracking keys has been rectified as the bad batch have been recalled. do not be put off by thid. i have had it two months and it is a lot better than any other 'music' phone. 10/10

ty for ur support bro ... my w580 is on the way ill get it today ... its a black but i dont think the keys are blue i think they are orange maybe im not so sure ill see ...
I have the black one with the blue keypad. I believe that the problems were with the phones that were produced first (the orange keypad). The keypad on my black and blue w580i is very sturdy. The phone has a pedometer that monitors your steps so you can see how far you have walked or ran (nokia users were bragging on this yesterday, but se has had it for months). I would recommend this phone.

ok so ur first phone took 5 months and then its keypad started to crack this is ur second phone and it havent been 5 months still how can u be so sure that its keys wont start to crack after another 5 months ...
what's the number to call b/c I just got this phone a few weeks ago and the keys are already starting to crack ...
I'm thinking of getting this phone and am worried about the cracked keys. Is there a serial/model or manufacturing date to find out whether your phone is a newer model with keys that don't crack?
cant u type a lil send some help will ya
This phone is awesome. SE fixed the problem with the cracked keys.
i am usins this phone since 5 months now...my keypad also cracked but my whole handset was changed.but now there is no problem as keypad of this changed is very good nd diffenrt also...so need not to worry now.camera's good,execellent music,shake control rox.
the worst mobile ever, it's build with the worst materials.... don't buy this mobile trust me
anybody knows how to lock when slider is not open....any key combination or setting and in my mobile when the network goes the mobile stop working means it goes in standby mode, if am playing walkman it gets stopped....any setting ...or its a default feature.......
yoooo sexy mobile man i have got it
but it looks most sensitive and delicate piece ever with the atmost features
I was planning to get this phone for Christmas but hearing that the keypads are really weak, I'm not so sure about getting this phone anymore. Someone please say something to change my mind. I wanted this phone for a long time.
I did not like this phone, will go back to Nokia as much friendly use and stable.
Is the "shake control" one of the features of the W580i or just for the W910i?
there is no way by which u can download flash themes......
you gotta be happy with ur preloaded themes..
Hi everyone! I am going to get this phone finally!! I was going to get the W910i but it was way too expansive. I just have a question, does both W580i and W910i have the "shake control" function??
@ Henkee -
do u mean the key pad buttons gets cracked after sending 200 messages may i know if s.e. have come across some kind of a solution for this problem before releasing more w580's for the market does the latest released w580's give the same problem ... cuz im so upset i was looking forward to buy it ... the design is very nice ... im so confused cuz so many ppl have described about the keypad getting cracked after few months of use in every web site ...
