Hi! Im planning to buy this W580i model. Can anyone tell me if the problem with the keypads has already been solve by now?
The Speaker is in the behind the play button right in front. The phone locks on is own when you slide it up and locks when you slide it back down.
hey guys where's the speaker for this phone? and can i lock the phone? cuz when its in my pocket it might be pressed any key. u guys know what i mean.
It's a nice stylish phone but the battery life is too short...THERE MUST BE WAY TO TURN OFF THE SIDE LIGHTS to save some power.
I've had this phone for 2 months now and some of the keys are begining to crack in half. I do text often (about 150 a month) and I feel dissapointment with sony. I've had other phones and they've last me years. I signed a 3 year contract and now i'm stuck with this phone. it's a great mp3 player phone but sucks as a text messaging phone. I even called sony ericsson and they said that they "can't do anything" and basically its your loss. I understand have the warranty for the phone but 2 mnths into a contract out of 36 and the phone is already broken. I even taked to the manager and she was even more rude than the first guy!
Conclusion: If you text at all, or dial numbers instead of storing them in your phone, get something else!
Im from the states i just got this phone a few days ago and its a really sweet little device!!! the graphics/colors are great, its nice and small but not to small, The sound qualty is steller in the MP3 player, and has some great features like sony erissons do. recaption is verry good its a must if you like working out and enjoy a music phone. sony ericsson are truly the best phones and most duribal. phones ive had include sony ericsson Z500, razor, blackberry, sliverL6, and the old nokia BRICK everyone had at least once. this phone has some of the old Z500 features plus a ton more pick it up!!!
I'm on my second handset within 6 weeks and same keypad cracking has occured.I really dont want a third handset and hope that when i contact o2 AGAIN they don't fob me off with another.

Wat is the main advantage and disadvantage of this phone?? I m v v v crazy about listening loud music, so is my choice Sony W580i is right??? Plzzzzzz Help me out...... Thank......
Hey buddies,its a nice phone but with a bit low sound quality n radio doesn't work well if used with some other application but look n lights effect can turn you on.. i suggest you to take it now..
Had this phone for over a month now, it's later than a week 22 model, love the design, love the walkman functionality.
Battery on the low side (hope to turn off the lights to get that better) but it ain't too much of an issue as unlike other phones where the battery indicator is either "full" or "you're dead", it does drain gradually.
Big problem though: *gasp* my # key has just started to show a crack. So it seems it doesn't matter when your phone was made, there is a design fault in the keypad which means more breakages than normal. Boo.
It's back to carphone warehouse where I bought it, hope they offer a swap rather than sending it off to the chop shop for an indeterminate period of time.
